Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) was the catalyst that made a significant shift in direction in every aspect of Vas’s life. According to Vas, his life began when he was 46 years young. He felt cheated by life till then…..asking himself, “Why didn’t I know all of this till now?” Obviously, there was no answer.

Well, he concluded that he didn’t need an answer. He founded Leading Performance Singapore and has developed it into a successful training company over 12 years operating in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Sri-Lanka & Maldives, through which he lives his Vision.

Robert Dilts & Judy Delozier – NLP University USA

Vas with Judy Delozier & Robert Dilts (NLPU)

I was in deep contemplation on which Master Trainer/s do I go to for my NLP Consultancy & Trainer’s Certification after about 1 year of graduating from NLP Master Practitioner Certification Training in Singapore with Barney Wee of Mind Transformations. I was told that Robert Dilts of NLP University, was a very theoretical innovator of NLP and that it is not going to be very exciting, his manner if delivery. Most of my colleagues were of this opinion. Guess what I did? When most people agree with something, I looked the other way.

How right I was!!! Robert was amazing & super deep. Together with Judith Delozier, Suzi Smith & Michael Colgrass I was entertained to a depth of NLP that I can only continue to seek clarity for…even after 12 years of exploring & teaching all over Asia. Simply awesome!

Ormand McGil , Marleen Mulder & Randal Churchil – Hypnotherapy Institute of California USA

Vas with Ormand McGil , Marleen Mulder & Randal Churchil

Having mastered NLP, I realised that there was a serious need to be armed with deeper healing processes like Hypnotherapy. I look far and wide. I was prepared to go to the corners of the planet to find the right masters and I found HTI California. Ormond McGil was 91 years old when he was teaching me. What an honour! 2 years after, the legend passed on. Randal & Marleen were my Gurus who have been working on people & teaching teachers work miracles for more than 70 years put together. Most of their processes were motivated by Gill Boyne, another heavy weight in the Hypnotherapy world arena.

After qualifying as an advanced Hypnotherapist in one solid month of intense training, I returned to HTI Ca again, this time to be certified as Clinical Hypnotherapist. All my certifications by HTI Ca is also approved by the American Council for Hypnotherapy Examiners. This is main stream Hypnotherapy.

Dr Tad James & Dr Adriana James – ABNLP, ABH & TLTA USA

After several years of empowering lives with NLP & Main stream Hypnotherapy, I was seeking for more and expedient ways of Intervention to help people overcome their challenges. The American Board of NLP appeared to be appropriate. Tad & Adriana James were clinicians - masters who know the difference that made the difference. Although they were just as scientific in their values, they stood out for me as artists of NLP processes. They taught me how to make things work, how to make change work by being more incisive with the critical stages of the processes.

Simply awesome! With their blessings I became recognised & certified as a trainer of NLP with ABNLP. Now I have both the Art & Science of NLP and that is what my clients & students get when they seek my services.

Ericksonian Hypnotherapy – Dr Tad James has a doctorate in Ericksonian Hypnotherapy. I was intrigued by the genius of Dr Milton Erickson and his innovation with his brand of Hypnotherapy which is Indirect & permissive in nature. It gave me an extremely effective change tool that can help people help themselves without much effort because I was able to evade any conscious resistance from them. I was able to work on Kids who could not stay still or would not listen to instructions. With Dr Tad James & the American Board for Hypnotherapy, I was certified an Advanced Hypnotherapist & a Trainer of Hypnotherapy. Now my students are blessed to be exposed in both Mainstream & Ericksonian Hypnotherapy.

TimeLine Therapy – Creator of TimeLine Therapy & Founder of TimeLine Therapy Assiciation, Dr Tad James has made the processes of reframing negative life experiences so simple, fast & effective. Learning from the creator himself was a great honour because I was able to explore behind the surface of the processes and this privileged understanding has help me become more clinical & effective when teaching & helping my clients TLT. Helping clients release negative emotions & re-define Limiting Beliefs is now a breeze both for me and my students. I was certified a Trainer of TimeLine Therapy.

Michael Colgrass – NLPU Trainer

Pulitzer Prize winner, Trainer of NLP & innovator of Somatic Syntax Michael Colgrass was a revelation. At 70 years old he was able to do a head stand on stage while he was teaching us. He made my experience more interesting & meaningful. Another master who showed me that we are like wine – the older we are the better we taste & the more expensive we become.

Kenrick Cleveland – Max Persuasion Training

Vas with Kenrick Cleveland – Max Persuasion Training

Every year I look for another Guru to expand my expertise and take it to the next level. I wanted to raise my Mastery in Persuasion especially in Sales, Leadership & Therapeutic Coaching. I found Kenrick Cleveland who has over 30 years of experience in Persuasion Skills using NLP & Hypnosis. I went to Las Vegas to learn from him and I found a genius in the subject matter. Today, I weave all of his processes into all my communication & persuasion training.
