About NLP Awakenings

Who are we?
We are a strong and small business, a husband and wife partnership who are united in the following mission:

"We want to make a positive difference to people’s lives by awakening in them their own ability and potential to:

find peace
promote their own healing
feel joy and fulfillment
progress happily through challenge and change
share excitement and energy with new learnings

AND so to awaken within themselves a source of gentle power bringing them to a new land, a new awareness and a new person."


About Darryl Shute

I walk alongside people, pace them and learn from them. From here I offer coaching suggestions so as to awaken in them thoughts, feelings and actions that bring them new possibilities.

I work in the same way with groups. I walk with them, pace them and then present new learnings in an accelerated learning way that engages groups of all ages. To see the growth of wonder in people’s eyes and to see them contemplating change and new ways with excitement is always a delight for me.

NLP makes all of this happen. I am oriented toward action, based on well-researched and founded NLP principles. The powerful techniques to assist people and groups in making significant long-lasting changes form the tool kit from which I resource.

I am an NLP Master Practitioner who has worked with many individual clients and groups of people of all ages.
