Dr Bridget Kirsop
Former GP, now NLP Master Coach and NLP Master Trainer
Hello, I’m Dr. Bridget, and this is my story
It’s been a long road, getting here. But if you’re thinking of working with me, I’m sure you’ll want to know who I am and why I’m the person to help you. So let me tell you now…
I’m a fixer. Always have been. As a girl, I loved working with Airfix models – fascinated by all the component parts, how they pieced together, and how one missing part, or a piece out of place, would spoil the whole construction.
It was years before I realised the human mind works the same way! That we don’t function…we don’t do our best or meet our full potential…until our values are perfectly aligned like the pieces of a physical structure.
Back then, all I knew was, I had a flair for putting things together and loved seeing the end results, fully fixed.
Soon I realised, with the right training, I could “fix” people too. So I took medicine at university – graduating as a doctor in 1983.
Sad to say, it wasn’t what I expected.
I spent the next 24 years in different roles, trying to make a difference. As a GP, I hated the rushed approach where I’d see five or six patients an hour, because I was only treating their symptoms – there was no time to tackle root causes, and lay the foundations for permanent change. So patients would come back time and again, and on it would go, round in an endless circle.
Eventually, I took a new role as Medical Director for a NHS Trust – hoping to instigate more meaningful, holistic patient care. But performance targets are what they are, and still I found myself frustrated.
I knew there must be a better fix, a better way for me to help people. Although I was still figuring out what that fix should be.
I found the answer when I attended a seminar on NLP.
Here was something that could fix things for real. I knew that for sure, because I saw it first hand…when it fixed my own life!
You see, my professional struggles were only one part of the story. I was unhappy in my personal life too, and had been for a long time.
I married young and had two children soon after qualifying. Then work took us to a new location where I had no friends or family – just an endless stream of patients, long hours, childcare to juggle, and a husband I never saw. I had no support, no respite.
Then, as my children grew up, my hours got longer and relationships fell apart. I still felt I was treading water – surviving day to day, but never making time for myself.
I’m sure you know that feeling, when work and home life is sapping your energy? When every day leaves you less and less fulfilled?
Well, for me, it had to change. And that NLP seminar pointed the way.
I started working with a coach, and finally gave myself “permission” to break free.
I found a clear perspective, by identifying my personal values – the things that truly mattered to me – and set myself some brave new goals that I’d never have dared to dream of just a few weeks earlier.
Now I had a perfect life in mind…the confidence to pursue it…and a path mapped out that would get me there. Along with a whole new set of tools: NLP techniques that helped me declutter my unconscious mind, casting out the old beliefs and mental blocks that had held me back for years.
It was transformational. There is no other word for it.
Life was suddenly good, because…for the first time ever…I was living on my own terms.
That’s when I realised, NLP was more than a personal fix. It was the answer I’d been looking for professionally, too.
So I retrained. I got certified as a NLP Practitioner. Kept adding new skills, like hypnosis and Time Line Therapy®. And soon became a NLP Master Practitioner, and Master Coach – helping clients to find the same permanent, meaningful change that I’d experienced in my own life.
I can do the same for you.
I want you to talk to me if you’re somehow feeling “stuck”. If you’re unsure what to do next, what your dream life will look like, or how to get past the obstacles that block your path to success.
I’ll get you unstuck.
My clients call me the CHIEF UNSTICKER, because that’s my purpose here: to help you get rid of whatever’s holding you back, and free your mind to focus on the life you want to live.
Whether that means getting more from your relationships, finding more success in your career or business…or maybe starting a new life as a coach. I can help you get there.
Looking back, it took me a long time to realise this is my role in life – that I can help more people through coaching than I ever could through medicine. But the journey has given me a 360 degree perspective. So…
I’m uniquely poised to help you, as soon as you’re ready for change.
Let’s talk…get you unstuck…and start to piece your new life together.
It’s a far cry from working on all those Airfix models, years ago! But it’s all been leading up to this point – where you and I get to work together, and start to fix your life.
