Teri Holland

We first noticed Teri Holland on her Empowered Life Network Facebook group. It’s a lively, valuable group that is growing fast mostly due to Teri’s care and attention. Teri is a social media coaching Ninja that really gets what it means to engage. You have to love that she is a podcaster too! Her recent episode “Why Smart Goals Suck” is full of passion and encourages listeners to take their goals to another level. Have a listen and be empowered!


Describe your approach to coaching. I believe the client has all the resources they need for change. They just don’t know how to access them yet.

What makes your coaching unique? I take my clients through a breakthrough process which gets results every single time. It is fast and it lasts. I coach using the most advanced techniques in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Hypnotherapy, Time Line Therapy® and Coaching.

Why did you start coaching? What was your inspiration for getting started? I started coaching as a personal trainer and sports nutrition adviser but after awhile I became curious about why some of my clients could release weight easily and effortlessly while others seemed to struggle. This curiosity led me to start looking inside at the mind/body connection. At first, it was for my own knowledge and to help my existing clients, but eventually it took over my focus and my passion became about helping people achieve success in all areas of life.

What do you enjoy most about coaching? What’s the most challenging part of coaching? Seeing clients have massive breakthroughs is the most rewarding. The most challenging I would say is being flexible and adaptable in the moment and it’s also the most fun part too.

What is one of your own most memorable coaching moments (coaching someone else)? It’s hard to pick just one but right now, the moment that comes to mind was fairly recent. A client came to me after working together for a few weeks. Our focus for her coaching was in working on her mindset around her business and success strategies. During this particular session, she asked if we could work on something else. She had been dealing with an embarrassing habit for her whole life and couldn’t seem to overcome it. She had tried many times to get over it but couldn’t. Using NLP techniques the habit was gone in less than 10 minutes. A life long habit that caused her a lot of embarrassment was gone and the relief it gave her was incredible to witness.

What is one of your own most memorable  personal coaching moments (being coached)? The first time I experienced Time Line Therapy® and felt a life long limiting belief being released. It felt like magic and I couldn’t believe how quick, easy and effortless it was! I couldn’t believe how a belief that had limited me in so many ways was gone, just like that!

Do you have any advice for new coaches? Be unique. The Coaching industry is one of the fastest growing industries and you need to distinguish yourself from the rest. Also, get certified. The coaching industry is not regulated so anyone can call themselves a coach but if you really want to transform lives, study coaching and learn from the best.

When you are not working, what do you like to do? I spend lot of time reading. I also meditate daily, go hiking with my dog, workout, and spend time with my husband.

What is the biggest milestone in your career so far? As I write this, I am completely my Master Practitioner Certification in NLP, Hypnotherapy, Time Line Therapy® and NLP Coaching and then continuing on to becoming an NLP Trainer. This is my biggest milestone so far. Having a the #1 Self Help podcast on iTunes was also pretty awesome.

What book or resource do you most often recommend to clients? It really depends on the client and what they’re working on.

Who most represents success to you? Thriving in all aspects of my life

What fuels your day? Having a purpose and a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Coffee also helps.
