Dr Amanda is an Accredited Trainer of NLP, Timeline Therapy® and Hypnotherapy, she is aligned with the American Boards of NLP, TLT and Hypnosis, so you can be assured of the highest quality of training and coaching. "I work with businesses, individuals, children and couples, NLP processes are so specific and direct, they have very powerful effects and positive change is often instantaneous, giving my clients the lasting change they want, to live life fully.

It is important that my clients understand that I am not waving a magic wand and fixing them. I am simply reminding the brain of its inherent excellence. It already has everything it needs, the 'hardware' and all I am doing as a practitioner is gently guiding the brain in the right direction, reprogramming the 'software'. By doing this we can connect those neural network patterns inside your brain to do what we want them to do. It is not NLP that works, it is you and your brain that work."

Dr Amanda has a Doctorate in Clinical Hypnotherapy, is a sought after speaker and regularly speaks in the UK, NZ and Australia. She and her wife Sarah are the developers of SSET™, the Self Sabotage Elimination Technique.

SSET™ is the Egyptian God of destruction and so is SELF SABOTAGE.

Self Sabotage is the single most destroying thing we can do to ourselves, things are tracking well and before we know it we are de-railing that success, creating destruction within our lives, every time. It becomes a pattern, a normality, the destruction takes hold quickly and something that could have taken months to nurture into our lives is destroyed in minutes.

Dr Amanda and Sarah have worked with thousands of clients to eliminate self sabotaging behaviours over the last 14 years. Through their experience with clients and their desire to ensure fast and effective change that lasts they have developed a technique that allows you to eliminate anything that is holding you back, SSET™

Using this technique we have transformed people's lives and not in a small way. We are talking about finding life long partners, getting the job of your dreams, moving to a new continent and importantly eradicating negative self-talk and self-destructive behaviour that is running 24/7.

" Sadly, we have noticed that 95% of those clients worked with over the last 14 years are woman and here's why; Woman put themselves last, find it hard to take a compliment, their needs are put on the shelf whilst everyones else's are upheld. Women can spend time creating 'Coronation Streets' in their imagination, thinking that people don't approve, don't like them and create a false sense of who they are and loose just how powerful they really are. This simple technique eliminates the deep rooted problem, the part of them that destroys, sabotages their inner belief to give the client freedom to be powerful, to have their life back and live their truth."

Every behaviour is a governed by a piece of neurology in the brain, it was installed as a child and over time it has been influenced by our environment. We all arrived on this planet perfectly whole, it's just other people's stuff has got in the way.
We have the tools to re-wire the brain, delete this behaviour and install something in it's place that is magnificent!.

  • "I was introduced to Dr Amanda Foo-Ryland by a member of a professional development peer group, which I lead. I invited Amanda to speak at one of our sessions and the feedback was outstanding. Her energy and enthusiasm for her subject is palpable, by the end the session there was barely a dry eye in the house! Since that session, I have attended Dr. Amanda’s course ‘Communicate for Life’ and again, came away from that feeling empowered and inspired. I couldn’t recommend Amanda more highly and look forward to working with her again in the future."

Thank you again Amanda."

All of us on the course came away with a new perspective and some fantastic new skills to use in both our work roles and our personal lives. I would recommend this program to anyone and in particular anyone that wants to make a positive change to their business or personal life."
    Ian Douglas.General Manager
