International Client- Princess Iman: My first ever NLP session with Yusuf. Wasn’t sure what quite to expect but was ready to explore the unknown. Yusuf is one of the kindest and most approachable people I have ever met and he made me feel comfortable the whole time. NLP is definitely something you need to do with an open mind and it is worth it. I felt a little tired after my session and the day after, but I have been feeling amazing and relaxed since then. Yusuf definitely helped me put things into perspective and to pin point bad subconscious habits I had developed over the years. I’m now able to strive to relinquish them and replace them with positive ones. It was totally an eye opener and worth while experience- thank Yusuf.
Terry Elston: Yusuf is a positive and forward thinking person. Combine that with his NLP skills and you have a unique blend of powerful thinking and creative transformational techniques. He is a born leader, so expect to sit back and be driven to your goals with smiles, whilst he puts your own hands back on the steering wheel of life.
Yasmina Mohamed: I was recently diagnosed with cancer. Having had an exceptionally busy lifestyle it is a huge adjustment for me. Most days I am confined to the house or a space and/or feeling weak and not able to do much especially after chemotherapy. Although I am very positive by nature, I had some frustration with waiting out so many months for recovery.
My brother Yusuf came to visit me one afternoon and I told him I am finding the time period of this journey slightly overwhelming.
He instinctively tried to assist and very quickly took me through a time line technique which i found to be a very helpful tool.
When I now think of the number of months left , I think of Yusuf’s talk and the reference points he made. This helps me now to put the timeline into perspective and looking forward to a bright future.
Justine Whyte: In my sessions with Yusuf I found him to be a very genuine person, I felt safe opening up and sharing myself with him and allowing him to guide me through the processes required. His intent in helping me through my issues was genuine and sincere which allowed me the space to feel supported and to share freely what needed to be worked through. Thank you Yusuf for your amazing contribution towards my wholeness!”
Simonetta De Paoli: Yusuf as an NLP practitioner is very compassionate and positive. He is a good listener and a very good observer, he has a natural way to make the client always feel at ease. He has a vibrant and genuine personality which makes you feel supported and motivated along the process of self-discovery.
Tracy Leigh Claire: As a Client I found Yusuf so easy to speak too. I’m usually very guarded with my inner thoughts yet I felt safe to share. Because of this I was able to start the challenging task of finding my core challenges. It has been life changing.
Candice Mounsear – Wilson: I recently met up with Yusif during my time in Cape Town. He has such a wonderful energy and zest for life. I immediately felt drawn to him and relaxed. I felt as though I was chatting to a good friend. Yusuf goes out of his way for his friends and family and wants everyone to achieve their desired outcomes. He stays curious and is a constant student of life. Thank you for being part of my journey, Yusif.
Munira Sheik: After listening to Yusuf on the radio l felt certain that l needed to seek his expertise, and so my wonderful journey began. He was very encouraging and gave me a new hope about life. This was even before l had my session with him. During the therapy l felt safe n completely at ease , Yusuf through his kindness n ability guided me to a more fulfilling understanding of myself. Like so many others l was blindly just living now through nlp and Yusuf’s help l know l am succeeding at becoming the best version of myself. This leaves me with a wonderful feeling of wanting to give back to this universe .We all are really fabulous divine expressions of life. Thank you Yusuf for your constant support and this amazing journey.May the All Mighty increase your blessings.
Ceclin B: Whilst in my state of depression, I decided to take a leap of faith by making an appointment with Yusuf Mohamed, an International Neuro Linguistics Practitioner and Life Coach. I was sceptical at first about the appointment because I did not find previous interventions effective, but I soon found my session with Yusuf to be positively influential in my attempt to move my life in a new direction. Yusuf was professional and sensitive in approach, and I felt comfortable to express my experiences which I understood later to contribute to my mental state. Yusuf provided useful tips and coping techniques which are assisting me in my daily life. It was particularly helpful to be taught coping techniques for an upcoming event I felt anxious about. Yusuf was also kind enough to remind me about these learnings in personalised, motivational messages sent after the session, which provided a sense of support to reinforce my ‘new way of being’. Overall, my one session with Yusuf was effective, and for the first time in a long while I feel positive and less anxious about my future. Yusuf made me feel motivated again to achieve my goals, regain my inner strength, and maintain this state of being. I am grateful for this experience, and I would recommend Yusuf to anyone who would like to improve their life, understand their uniqueness, and change their perspective on events, spaces, or experiences which may appear challenging.
Dalia: I visited Yusuf Mohamed after a colleague shared his experience of his session with Yusuf with me, describing it as “life changing”. I decided that given the personal challenges I am experiencing in my marriage and the latent emotions of historic trauma I will consider speaking to Yusuf. Upon entering the treatment room, I was completely unsure of why I was there or what I would be doing; is it therapy? I am going to have to talk? Better yet, would I be bored? These were questions that made me think, “ah, what the hell, what can I possibly lose”. I was pleasantly surprised to have been greeted with a reflective jolting to table my concerns. I began sharing with him my deepest emotions about my marriage, being violated as a child and general family dynamics. Yusuf proceeded to take me on an almost three hour journey with the use of various techniques, which while heart wrenching to conduct allowed me to break barriers within myself and gave me the skill to see myself as a human being and not simply as a piece of matter existing – in fact surviving – with each passing day. I used the tissues, yes, but for the first time I wanted to. I wanted to rid myself of the burdens that I have been carrying, while the perpetrator succeeds at life – I wanted to no longer have pain each time I saw him. While there is no quick fix to life, Yusuf provided me with the ability to look within myself and trust in ME to find the answers to questions that I have and to find the strength to build the life that I want, need and, ultimately, deserve. I have been to counsellors for years, but Yusuf’s ability to make me feel that the hour-glass is timeless, made me feel that I matter and that asking for help is ok. It is the common understanding that a counsellor’s session is an hour long, since conversations become repetitive after an hour. But, my session with Yusuf showed progress from beginning to end, with a natural flow of content focussed on.
The session taught me that nothing is a coincidence; Yusuf popped into my social space on numerous occasions, but it took an innocent message from him inquiring about my work just days after my initial conversation with my colleague for my process with him to begin. I listened to myself and took the opportunity to enquire about his sessions.
I will certainly advise anyone who wishes to make a meaningful change to their view on their life to contact Yusuf.
Leila: My session with Yusuf was not what I expected. I am skeptical by nature , but I must admit the experience has helped me overcome my fear of going alone to bed at night. Yusuf was patient with me.
I’ve been having hallucinations in the middle of the night, frantically waking from my sleep frequently choking, at times I would find myself awake in the passage meters away from my bedroom. I’ve had this problem
Since a teenager and never really felt the need to see anyone. Up until recently these hallucinations became worse and it started affecting my memory. The following are examples of these hallucinations.
I would see a spider dangling from the ceiling just 3mm from my face, unable to move or scream, terrified and helpless. A snake on my bed ready to strike, a baby cut in pieces in a violin case, wood, gum , paper or pins stuck in my throat, i would frequently find myself in an upright sitting position choking , gasping for air. One night I awoke in this position head back with my mouth wide open only to discover that a sword was stuck in my throat piercing through the back of my head right through the mattress. I was unable to move , terrified of dying . I could have been in this position for several minutes until I realised that it wasn’t real. It was this terrifying experience which lead me to Yusuf. I remember reading the testimonials from his website, I was impressed and booked a session with him .
Yusuf went the extra mile he was patient with me and did further research on my condition. He also consulted with His NLP group and they assisted him. I’ve done research on my condition but never came across his conclusion. With Yusufs help we discovered that my sleep condition and hallucinations is a disability called hipnopompic hallucinations.
Last night was the sixth night since my session, I have had only two episodes of mild hallucinations. Knowing that I have a long way to go , Yusuf has been checking up on me daily. Knowing what my condition is I can confidently go to bed without any fear.
Laylah: I’ve been dealing with many issues since almost forever . From adoption to rape and physiological abuse. This in no uncertain terms has drastically impacted on my self esteem and ability to reason in a healthy manner. In the past I have been to see two different psychologist and really didn’t feel that I was getting to the point I felt I needed to be and also a great part of me feared dealing with my childhood all over again. After viewing a clip of yusuf and seeing and understanding his approach, I was eager to give it a try. He immediately made time to meet with me and after a brief discussion I felt that this was it and i wanted an appointment the very same day. The session with yusuf was unlike any experience I have ever had before. In my two hour session he dealt with every aspect that needed to be healed. I was able to confront my deepest fears and at the same time get perspective of my purpose and understanding of who I am and what my purpose was. I feel so much more confident and and the power point given is what keeps me motivated and driven. The technique used by yusuf is beyond a doubt an approach which will help anyone in any situation or challenge they may find themselves in. There is no need to carry the burden or plight alone…..one appointment with Yusuf will be a start to a whole new dimension in your life. I am so thankful to Yusuf for his genuine care and especially for the contact that he keeps after his appointments to ensure that his patients remain positive and motivated. This was the best decision I have made for myself and if you are looking to move forward. ….Yusuf is the person you can turn to.
Anonymous: My husband died a sudden death at the age of 47 and the deep loneliness of my loss followed me everywhere. I had at my fingertips an unbelievable reservoir of sadness. It was right next to me where I could touch it – part of my daily life. I was referred to Yusuf by a close friend who saw my suffering and wanted to help. My naturally skeptic attitude was diluted by my desire to want to heal and I approached my venture with an open mind. Upon meeting Yusuf I was greeted with a friendly, welcoming face and his kind disposition, made me feel comfortable and safe. He is extremely passionate about what he does (NLP) and this passion together with his empathy, honesty and ability to listen well, manifests itself in the success rate of the clients he treats. In my first session Yusuf took me to a space where I felt I kicked against the seabed, broke the foundation, and surfaced with a breathe of fresh air. For the first time in a year I am ‘high on life’ and by the simple reinforcement of positive words I was able to return the ‘joy’ that I deprived myself of. #walkingonsunshine
Doni Dwi Pradana ( Singer /actor / model / song writer )Indonesia : Starting from contacting friends on Facebook, I knew a Yusuf Mohammed. Somehow I initially wanted to like almost all of the posts because whatever he posted was always with a smiling face and full of happiness, so I felt it myself. At that time we started making friends and closer to each other. And I see sincerity and positive spirit in every speech he said. Sometimes we often spend time communicating via telephone to video calls, we don’t hesitate to share opinions and input with each other., I am someone who is very ordinary, Maybe for others I am nothing but worthless. I am just an amateur singer who dreams big to be a successful musician and a big star. Yusuf changed my view of it. He taught me so much that it was very inspiring too motivate me to be even better, when everyone just looks at you with one eye, because of that I became bolder and stronger, because him I think more positively even though it looks very impossible, because Him i am increasingly confident and sure of all my dreams , therefore I can appreciate all the processes and each of my accomplishments, and therefore I understand how and what I should go forward and enjoy my life even in a downturn, remain in happiness and full of gratitude. He clearly motivates and inspires me thanks my Yusuf Mohammed
Anonymous: I was feeling really down before my session. I felt like Yusuf connected with me and helped to raise my spirits Alhamdulillah. For the past two weeks I was having arguments in my head with the people who were troubling me and my energy levels were becoming depleted. After the session I felt energized and more hopeful as to finding solutions to my problems. I was less focused on the problem and more focused on the solutions
Ameena: My experience with Yusuf was very enlightening and made me realise that the past definitely had an effect on my life. He helped me change this perception or rather this set way of doing things by allowing myself firstly more freedom. I also realised that not everything that happens in our lives can be controlled. Yusuf is very patient and understanding and approachable. I would highly recommend him to anyone facing challenges in their lives who seeks change.
FS: I had realised that there were blockages in certain if not all areas of my life and no matter how hard I tried I could not release them. I had been on the journey for a while trying different self- help books, energy healing, daily affirmations but nothing was working. Then I went to see Yusuf, whom I had known for about 5 years so I knew what to expect from him as an individual. Well we went through the process in which I really connected with the healing process and felt the physical release of that blockage. It was an amazing feeling!
Since then I have seen significant changes in certain areas of my life. I would certainly recommend Yusuf to anyone struggling with emotional blockages which prevent us from living the life we were meant to live.
The NLP session was very tiring and draining as we touched on many sensitive issues which took me back to my childhood. During the session Yusuf help me remove the hurt and the emotional blockage I have been walking around with.
Now at work I am able to be calm with no breakdowns and lead my team with confidence. It’s really amazing what difference it made to my life, I feel liberated and more equipped to take on life.
