Event description


Building on the success of 2016, SalisburyICW 2017 starts with a motivational performance workshop like no other from former world champion boxer Glen Catley. Glen is a clinical psychotherapist, psychologist and hypnotherapist. He will share how solution-focussed therapy took him from being a raw amateur boxer to becoming a professional world champion.

SalisburyICW provides workshops, experiences and talks on a wide range of coaching and psychotherapy topics. The event is aimed at individuals, employers, business owners and of course coaches and others from the helping professions. Our themes are: wellbeing; leadership and management; intuitive business planning; psychotherapy; counselling; and credentialing for ICF coaches. Additionally, experiential events are available on most days: mindfulness meditations; short (30 min) 1:1 drop-in coaching taster sessions; and short (30 min) drop-in NLP taster sessions.

A pop-up cafe will be run by Quench as a pilot on 15 May - if it goes well the cafe will run all week. Quench will serve filter coffee and pastries in the mornings and sandwiches and snacks at lunchtime. Please have a look at their online menu and bring cash for payment:

Clare Norman

Companies come to Clare to support their people to grow through big changes, rather than being knocked for six. They also call on Clare to coach great leaders to create a ripple effect in the organisation’s engagement and productivity. Clare coaches passionate people to live their best story in times of change and in times of stability. People come to her to make high impact transitions from one company to another, from one role to another, and in stepping up to more senior leadership levels – or any other change they are making. They figure out what to leave behind and what to take with them; how to work through uncertainty; and how to make a great new beginning. They want to get clearer about their way forward, grow through the changes, manage their stress levels, enhance their own and others’ performance, and achieve their potential.

Clare will co-lead (with Ross Nichols) a workshop on credentialing with the ICF (International Coach Federation)

Clare will provide experience sessions on 15 May on:

  1. 1:1 drop-in coaching taster sessions (30 mins)

Nikki Emerton

Hi my name is Nikki, I am a qualified Clinical NLP Practitioner and Life Coach, outside of that; I am a mother of 4, enjoy running and fitness, wine and eating good food and passionate about helping people move forward. My passion comes from a life long experience of dealing with those internal conversations we have, that are not useful, difficult. This resulted in many episodes of depression, social anxiety, low self-esteem plus a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, ME and Raynaud's of which I no longer have any symptoms. I found the knowledge, teachings, tools and strategies learned from NLP, Coaching and Hypnosis gave me a life-long knowledge of how to enjoy the life that I want to enjoy and this in turn inspired me to become a practitioner so that I could share this knowledge and positive use with others.

A 1:1 taster session with an NLP Practitioner will involve a short but detailed collection of information about the goal or desire in mind then a range of strategies, tools, methods or direction delivered to achieve the agreed goal/desire. As each session is only 30 minutes there are certain achievements that would require longer and this will be communicated to you at the session.

Nikki will provide experience sessions 15-17 May 2017 on:

  1. 1:1 drop-in NLP taster sessions (30 mins)
