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.'
