"Over the past 4 seasons I have worked with Kim using NLP as a massive part of my build up to my Triathlon season and in particular the ITU World Age groups champs where I have now won 3 silver medals. Through Kim and NLP I have learnt how to focus my energy many weeks in advance of a major competition and not to waste time worrying about things I can't control. Kim manages to turn my limiting beliefs into real positives so on race day the pressure I feel really diminishes and my confidence to perform to the best of my ability is hugely heightened. A lot of my fellow competitors comment on how calm I am now before races and I take real pride in that now. When I call on experiences from the past in the race using my trigger points the sensation is amazing and suddenly extra power and speed comes from absolutely nowhere. Totally in the zone, I have always met my goals using this technique!" Sophie Whitworth GB Triathlon Team Medallist - World, European & National Champion
