"I have seen Dick live, love, fight, practice, challenge and provide awareness for close to a decade.
He did not age as we usually think; instead age brought in him and increased ability to live in the present. Like wine gets better with age, so over time did he excel at the art of NLP.
He evolved at a steady mellow pace blending teaching, therapy, playing, loving and writing as the need emerged.
Dick McHugh was my mentor, my guide, my inspiration, my guru, my ode."
Dick was introduced to the subject in 1980. He gained a deeper understanding of his own psychology, physical environment and most importantly religion through NLP.
NLP gave him clarity, it came as calm, mentally equipping him to deal with things in a healthy manner. His inspiration came from Buddhism, Judaism and Sufi tradition, integrating these beliefs and learning made him feel at ease.
Dick was the only Gestaltian alive. Gestalt taught him that the resources necessary to find the answers are within one’s self.
Love is 100% participation in life. Know that the one you love will be taken away from you; know that if you love, your heart will be broken Also, know that everything you hold dear is changing, is impermanent and will die.
Dick Mchugh’s knowledge imparted in me has been the greatest asset throughout my career.
My Journey in NLP is sponsored by these giants, they who have seen me for who I am and for what I can be, and its truly a blessing.
My success is due to your support and mentorship. Thank you for fueling my passion.
Thank you for proving it to me that how you rise determines how far you go.

I am grateful to my teachers, who made my life more meaningful through their teachings.
I would like to thank Dick, because of who my purpose of living completely changed. It is through them, that I have achieved my goals, in ways I could have not imagined years ago.
Their direction, motivation & guidance, helped me in being who I am and what I am today. I also thank the sponsors, for the utmost contributions towards the company and the society.

NLP is a tool that I believe can help many individuals in various ways, contributing towards the well being of the person. NLP helps in taking control of one’s life and bringing clarity within us.
It’s my mission to spread NLP across the globe, to make it more known and accessible to the people in India and abroad, and to teach them different tools that may change their approach towards life.
I want the younger generation and older too, to understand NLP and the impact it has on one’s life.
