Doug O’Brien

Call Doug on: 718-768-4098

He is a certified NLP Trainer whose clear and engaging style of teaching has made him a much sought-after seminar leader and coach worldwide. Doug is equally comfortable introducing the principles of personal change to novices as he is challenging experts to finer levels of ability.

His expertise in NLP, Ericksonian Hypnosis, and Sleight of Mouth might surprise some coaching clients who don’t see the serious structure behind the pleasant conversation, but it doesn’t fool the experts.

Doug may the only person that people as different as Richard Bandler and Tony Robbins recommend.

Doug, in addition to continuing running training courses in NLP and hypnosis, is now once again offering his services to help people with their personal issues, on a one-to-one basis.

Here’s what the experts say about Doug’s training work

Richard Bandler Co-Creator of NLP:

Robert Dilts, Co-Developer of NLP:

“I have known Doug O’Brien for many years and have been consistently impressed with his skill and integrity.  Doug is one of the rare teachers who is able to integrate NLP and Ericksonian hypnosis, so that students develop both conscious and unconscious competence. I confidently endorse him as a trainer, and as a person.”
