What People Say About NLP Institute Of California



Without exaggeration, Kris and Tim Hallbom have been the pinnacle conduit for my personal development and growth. I can not say enough about them! They are absolutely amazing people with so much love and generosity in their hearts! NLPCA is hands down the best training center in the world! NLPCA has top notch training and provides an incredibly professional and warm environment for their students to grow, explore and change.  -Amina Zamani, Davis, CA, Film Producer



Tim is a master at NLP! He is just great! Tim can easily take complicated and difficult ideas and break them down in a way that is very easy to understand. I really enjoyed him! The forgiveness process that is free to download on the website is truly remarkable! It really works! This audio is just one example of Tim’s mastery! He is great! -Ariadna Pierson, Senior Manager, San Jose, CA


Tim, I wanted to express appreciation for the work you are doing.  Over the last several months I have grown as a clinician and as a person.  It has been extremely helpful to recognize what my goals are and ways I can accomplish them.  I feel very lucky that we have had you in our training.  I truly respect and admire your skill as a professional.  You seem to genuinely care about us and our progress.  The techniques are very powerful. -M. Morgan ~ Salt Lake City, UT




Before doing the NLPCA’s Health Certification, I was a mess.  Sure, on the outside I looked like I had it “together”, but on the inside I was a ball of worry and anxiety.  During the course of the Health Cert, I found myself transforming at a speed that I would never have expected possible.  As a Psychology major, I always assumed change would have to be difficult and take time. And although the NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner courses were AMAZING and life transforming, the Health Certification helped me delve into the realm of personal mastery.  I now use the tools, philosophies and concepts gained from this program in my life and with others through my business with stellar results.  If you desire deep transformation and/or hope to help others through profound changes, I implore you to sign up for the Health Certification today.  – Silvia Johnson, Outside the Cubicle




I love that the trainings are so close and convenient to me; it’s no doubt in my mind the best NLP training available! The results that I have seen from taking courses with NLPCA are great. I have seen richer and deeper relationships “evolving” from previous relationships that were pretty much unresourceful in the past; my abilities to respond differently to what used to “push my buttons” have improved dramatically, thereby improving the overall dynamics of the relationship. It’s magic! I have recommended NLPCA to many people! -Cindy Smith, NLP Coach, Riverbank, CA



After taking the NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner training from Tim Hallbom, I can no longer settle for self-help books and seminars. I’ve never felt this kind of certainty before, and it is because NLP is all about experiencing change first-hand. It has changed the way I view the world and has given me more choices and valuable resources. -Joanne Ritter, Director of Marketing and Communications, San Rafael, CA



I would absolutely recommend NLPCA to others in fact, I intend to be back myself! I would recommend that anyone who is curious about NLP studies with Tim and Kris because they really embody the values NLP promotes: tolerance, respect, playfulness, kindness, open–mindedness, curiosity, and belief in the possible. -Kate Warren, Trainer and Coach, London, England



My Miracle from NLP: When Tim Hallbom brought me in front of the class to alleviate my shoulder pain I knew it was impossible. After all, the pain was due to 4 severed rotator cuff tendons that could not be repaired. The shoulder was rubbing bone-to-bone, and I was in constant pain. I went along with the process anyway. Eighteen days later I was at the physical therapist. I asked her why I was there. She said “For the pain. We are going to try electrical treatments to see if we can alleviate some of it.” I said, “What pain? I don’t have any pain.” She couldn’t believe it. I raised my arm in front of me, pain free. Her mouth dropped open. I forgot that three weeks prior I couldn’t raise my arm, and was in constant pain. In fact, according to four surgeons and numerous physical therapists, it would become impossible for me to ever raise the arm because no other muscles could do what the several tendons did. My arm would atrophy and I would be completely disabled. I was also told I would always have pain. A few days later at my NLP class a fellow student asked, “How’s your shoulder?” “Huh, what about my shoulder? It’s fine, why do you ask?” Duh… I had completely forgotten about the process Tim did on me. Everyday my arm improves a little more and the shoulder pain occurs when I use the arm to excess. According to some fine surgeons, what Tim accomplished is impossible.  – Carol J. Rose, NLP Master Practitioner, Campbell, CA



Out of all the trainers I’ve had, I think Tim Hallbom is the best! He’s really good at breaking down concepts in a logical way. Tim is methodical in his ability to train and is a great facilitator! NLPCA’s classes are excellent and I would recommend them to anyone that wants to live an empowered life. As a result of taking classes from NLPCA I am more effective consultant and coach. I am so much better at listening to people and recognizing when they are stuck.  -Carolyn Godfrey, Principle Consultant 



NLP offers wonderful self-help tools in quieting the mind’s critical voice and assists us in moving towards changing those limiting beliefs and attitudes that we all face from time to time! I’m very much looking forward to extend this new found knowledge to others, as that part will be most rewarding. I am more flexible and accepting of various situations in life which has been a significant result of taking trainings with NLPCA. Further, I have greater inner peace and am able to approach life with a more “go with the flow” attitude! Before I took the coach training, I was lacking direction – unsure of my next step. Having been in Music Therapy and other related careers; I always enjoyed talking with people and assisting them with their problems. This course has enhanced my background and has provided me with new insights!  -Louise Rising, Life Coach



Kris and Tim are really special! I value Kris and Tim because they are innocent souls filled with true value and integrity. I think they give everyone a chance to become who they truly are. They are kind and giving without measure. They allow their students to explore their absolute fullest potential. Also, the way in which they teach their classes is great! The structure of their classes really works me. Tim and Kris set an intention to change people’s lives and it works! I have recommended so many people to them, because they are genuinely good people and do an outstanding job as trainers. -Taru Fisher, Menlo Park, CA, Personal and Professional Life Coach

As a survivor of Stage III breast cancer I have used to be terrified of dying from cancer. Especially in light of all the public figures whose cancer had come out of remission and were now terminal.

Every coach, psychotherapist, nurse, social worker, manager, and serious business person needs the rich gifts and advanced communication tools NLP can provide. Before NLP I was struggling to define my practice, obtain clients, and develop programs. During my NLP trainings (both Practitioner and Master Practitioner) I successfully addressed all of these problems, plus a fair amount of personal issues. Now at the end of training, nine months later, I have a full practice and several publications coming out. I would never have had the resources to do any of this without my NLP training with the NLP Institute of California. -Maryam Webster, Saratoga, CA
