Helen has acquired NLP Master Practitioner certification to better understand herself and others. NLP, or neuro-linguistic programming, is a rapidly evolving field of applied psychology today for mapping the relationships between human thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and can be used in many different ways. Among other things, NLP can help you better understand your beliefs together with the background behind them, and thus help you make a difference in yourself. Helen does not consider herself an NLP expert, but she feels that knowing the basics of NLP will help to change thinking patterns and help us better understand why we believe the things that we believe or do the things that we do. And because our beliefs influence our actions in every area of our lives, there is a lot of value in understanding NLP.

In addition to understanding one’s own inner beliefs, it is also important to know one’s own natural behavior and to adapt it to the situation and to others for more effective cooperation. That’s why Helen has also obtained internationally recognized DiSC® Trainer Certification to help people collaborate more effectively.

In order to be able to share her knowledge and ideas professionally, Helen has undergone 160 hours of adult trainer training that was based on the competencies set for professional adult trainers in Estonia. She has also undergone train the trainer programs as a former HR manager.

She is convinced that a person acquires knowledge much better if the learning process is engaging. Studies have also confirmed the effectiveness of active learning compared to traditional teaching methods. As an ardent advocate of active learning, she uses various elements in her training that enables you to acquire knowledge in a relaxed atmosphere through social interaction. This is more effective than traditional lecture-based training. Being actively involved in the learning process helps you to become aware of your own behavioral patterns and thus to better understand the person you are talking with and the topic. It also helps to link the acquired knowledge to reality.
