Alumni Spotlight: Jackie Reid

Hope Bundrant: Thank you for choosing iNLP Center for your training! You’ve completed many iNLP Center trainings and continue to attend live sessions and support our community. Please tell our readers which courses you have taken at the iNLP Center.

JackieI’ve completed the Master Life Coach Training and the Mental Health Coach Training.

Hope Bundrant: How is your success now?

Jackie: I’m very excited to partner with a local clinic to offer coaching alongside their weight loss program.  They recognized that many of the people who enroll in their program lose the weight but have a hard time keeping it off.  I will be offering weekly coaching sessions alongside the program to help participants stay on track by incorporating NLP coaching techniques and parts work (if needed) so they can better understand and heal their relationship with food and their bodies.

Hope Bundrant: What’s your coaching niche?

Jackie: My niche is specializing in inner parts work and applying parts work skills along with NLP coaching techniques to help clients achieve their goals.

Hope Bundrant: How close is your niche to your initial coaching vision?

Jackie: I never intended to offer weight loss coaching!  But this opportunity presented itself, and because of the comprehensive training I’ve received, I feel prepared for the challenge.  

Hope Bundrant: What’s a tip you can give to current students?


1. Don’t get hung up on waiting until you have the perfect niche to start your business.  Lean towards what interests you most and trust in the journey to lead you.  
2.  Begin announcing to everyone that you’re a coach.  That’s how the weight loss coaching opportunity came about.  Someone overheard me say I was a mental health coach, and so it happened that the doctor at the clinic was looking for a life coach to enhance his program!
3.  And say “YES!” to opportunities that come your way.  Even if it’s out of your comfort zone, it may lead you where you need to go.
