Meet your 2023-2024 Leadership Team

The NLPAA Board of Management are elected to office for a one-year term at the Annual General Meeting held each July/August. The Leadership Team members volunteer their time and expertise for the Board and have a passion for NLP and a desire to help grow the NLP community in Australia.


Justin O'Hehir

Justin’s love for NLP came from the personal transformation it had on him and later his family, which had been fractured for many years due to mental illness. 

Justin’s first comment to his trainer all those years ago was, 'Why is this not in the hands of every teacher, psychologist and counsellor?' He was told in response, 'Well that sounds like your job!'

Since that time, Justin has completed his NLP Trainer qualification and has been a trainer since 2018. He has a focus on the transformation that NLP can deliver and is passionate about seeing people receive quality NLP training. He has been a strong advocate for the training standards held by NLPAA. Justin is quoted, 'It is our responsibility to make sure NLP gets the recognition it deserves, so we can inspire the world to be a better place.'

SECRETARY Craig Woolven

The revelation of discovering NLP in 1997 saw Craig's career in Media, Technology and Corporate Management take a decidedly NLP infused turn. The subsequent 20 years has seen Craig work with some of Australia's largest Companies in Technology, Marketing, Change Management and Business Development through his personal Consultancy, Thoughts By Design. 

Craig has been on the Leadership Team in various roles since 2013.

TREASURER    Miranda Kuijsten

Miranda is originally from The Netherlands and moved with her husband to Sydney in 2015. In 2009, she started her NLP journey in her homeland, intending to improve her communication skills, not knowing at the time that NLP offers so much more. She completed her NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner in 2013/2014. After moving to Australia, she became a member of the NLPAA (back when it was known as the ABNLP) to stay connected to an NLP community. She repeated her NLP training in English, completing her studies in March 2017 to become an NLP Coach, Consultant & Trainer. Miranda loves NLP and has her own NLP coaching business. She is excited to continue her role as a board member of the NLPAA in 2023-24.
