Our Story

About Change Working

We are all about your personal empowerment.

By training with us for your own development both personally and professionally- or by working individually to sort out an issue or plan a great future.

Alan & Jackie have been working with people to help them to sort out their problems, decide what they want for themselves- and to go for it for over 50 years between them.

We met in 2000 when both working at HMP/YOI Northallerton in the drug services there. Having both trained in NLP, we decided to create our own business to let more people know what could actually be achieved using non-standard approaches with people

We have trained over 1000 people in Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) via ‘open’ and ‘in-house’ training. This is delivered in a non-cheesy, very understandable and enjoyable way


Bespoke Solutions Offered

I have attended several of Alan's training courses and can highly recommend him to anyone. He is extremely knowledgeable and very professional. He is also a genuinely caring person too which I think is just as important as there are a lot of over inflated egos out there!

Lynn Marshall - Registered Nurse

Alan is the best trainer and facilitator I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I have completed four of the Change Working courses and each time I come away more inspired. The NLP has impacted directly in my work in education and classrooms whilst also shining the light on the personal journey which has been life changing. The IEMT has brought an additional layer to coaching my one-to-one clients and each one has reflected that they felt positive change after the process. I can wholeheartedly recommend Alan; his ability to safely challenge, guide for change and hold the group without judgement is a great talent. I am returning next year for more NLP as I can trust the process, the facilitator and maximise my learning.

Anna Robinson - Specialist teacher for SEMH

Loved today’s course. Alan gave a whole new perspective on an intriguing approach. Would
definitely recommend Change Working

Tracey Dunning

Just brilliant! Alan inspires confidence, he's 'a real human being' and doesn't set himself up as 'a guru'. He's passionate about what he does and he shares his knowledge in an open and honest way. He just wants his students to be successful at what they do - both on a personal and professional level.

Valerie Edwards

Would thoroughly recommend Change Working. I have recently attended Alan's Foundation NLP course and I've learned loads about myself and other people. For me, this course and the coaching session that I had have been life changing. Thanks Alan - I will be eternally grateful

Alan is a very interesting guy and knows his subject well It enabled me to look at a couple of issues I thought I had already dealt with. I feel it helped me to see them in a different way
