Deb Huckins

Deb Huckins is a Certified Trainer of NLP, Time Line Therapy®, Hypnosis and NLP Coaching, and is currently in her 2nd year in the Master Training Program with the Tad James Company.

Deb started her journey in 2012 when she left behind an unhealthy lifestyle, and a mindset that was holding her back of tapping into her true potential. Using the tools of NLP, Time Line Therapy®, Hypnosis, and NLP Coaching, Deb was able to make quick changes in herself and in her life, allowing her to positively transform. She successfully built her own NLP Coaching & Training company in California, positively transforming many people over the last few years.

Fully committed and passionate about the field, Deb knows that her purpose is to empower others, and to help them realize that success and happiness are a choice. She knows that everyone has the ability to accomplish their goals, as long as they commit to themselves, take action, REALLY want it to happen, and have the right tools. She knows that the individuals who do this, will create the life they want!

Deb is ecstatic and grateful for the opportunity to work with the Tad James Company Team as an In-House Coach, and to work alongside the top professionals in the field of NLP. She enjoys being a part of the growth process and transformation of the students, and helping to create the ripple effect that the Tad James Company is known for in the quest to Transform The Planet.

Ryan Miller

Training Advisor

Ryan was born in Miami and raised in Israel up until his military service.

Ryan decided to travel the world after his service in order to explore different cultures and learn as much as he could from others.

Upon his travels (Australia, New Zealand and Thailand) Ryan managed to absorb many different perspectives about life and forged one of his own.
Ryan was always interested in psychology and how the mind works and was looking for answers from an early age. Great emotional charge from the army and “baggage” from the past, attracted him to NLP.

Ryan has completed his NLP Practitioner Training in June 2018. After the training, he decided to revolve around NLP 24/7 in his life, and he joined the Tad James Company in August 2018 as a Training Advisor showing the students how NLP can transform their lives in every aspect. He is always excited to get to know new people and hear their stories and new ways of thinking, and he is passionate about sharing his knowledge with others so they can achieve their goals and step into their true potential.
