Shane, Former EMT-P

I recently completed an NLP & Time Line Therapy based intervention for Post Traumatic Stress with Allen Kanerva at Inspired Outcomes. Three 5 hour sessions with Allen changed my life. I spent over 20 years in Emergency Response, in various roles including Fire Fighter and mostly as an Advanced Care Paramedic. I thought everything was alright, the usual peaks and valleys emotionally of a career in EMS.Then my career came to a sudden, grinding halt. 

I got sick, an autoimmune disease called chronic hives. I had it so bad that my throat would begin to close. I was on Short Term Disability. I was eventually cleared back to work, and on my first day back I did 17 calls, 4 of which were high acuity paediatric emergencies. By the end of my 12 hour shift, not only had I taken my daily meds, I had to take over 500mg of Benadryl to get through the day. I realized then that the career I loved was over.

During my first session with Allen I was nervous and covered in hives. As we did the NLP and Timeline Therapy my hives literally disappeared. For the first time in 5 years I had no hives.

I have not taken my daily medications since and have not taken any Benadryl as a rescue medication either. My outlook on life has changed, my past no longer drives my future. I have hope. And with Allen’s assistance I am making moves to live my "why".

Jennifer, NLP Life Coaching Client

I wanted to thank you so much for everything you have done and helped me with over the years.

I can honestly the results have been life changing- there are countless examples of how your coaching and support have improved my daily life, relationships and opportunities.

A few weeks ago you helped me with my outlook on life with respect to things that I can't change and are out of my control- things that everyone will eventually have to deal with in life that are inevitable  but for some reason were causing me stress and anxiety. 

Since our session, I have not once had the space in my mind to even think about these things- it was as if I needed to have some negative in my life to balance out the positive things. The change was immediate and lasting and totally and completely incredible to me. I feel so calm, and exciting and deserving of all that I achieve. 

What has struck me most though, in recent weeks, is how this has impacted me in other areas.

Looking back now, I can see how this whole situation of Covid 19 would have either replaced or added to the concerns I was dealing with.

I am of course concerned with what is going on in the world at the moment. However, I am dealing with it in the most positive and manageable way. Not once have I lost sleep about the current state of our world, something I would have certainly experienced even a few short weeks ago had I not met with you.

I cannot begin to thank you- you have allowed me to process these events and deal with them in a way that allows me to remain calm, level headed, focused and most importantly, still with positive, hopeful mindset (and a sense of humour too! :)

I had no idea that this would help me in so many ways- I truly thought we had worked on one specific item, I didn't realize what an impact it would have on my life as a whole. 

Thank you thank you! You are truly amazing and I am so thankful for your help.

Stacy, Student Mother

I came to Inspired Outcomes feeling very broken and stuck in all aspects of my life. Having undergone decades of traditional counseling and inpatient programs for my depression, anxiety and PTSD, I was skeptical how this therapy would be different. It didn’t take long for my skepticism to disappear. 

I have now completed my Breakthrough and feel like a new woman. My trauma symptoms have vanished!  I now have direction and purpose.  I live my life each day with energy and vitality.  I have re-engaged with old friends and family I had shut myself off from.  I think the most exciting outcome from my breakthrough was the discovery or rather, re-discovery, of just what I’m supposed to be doing with my life. So, I applied to, and was just accepted into College!  If it were not for Allen and Tara, I would still be at home, on my couch, haunted by my past and feeling lost and stuck. I cannot begin to thank you enough!



Anonymous, Trauma Client 

Before I started with Allen I was uninspired, unmotivated and always living in negative past thoughts and fearful future thoughts.  Now I work everyday at staying present which comes more naturally now that I have changed my perspective and subconscious thoughts with Allen. I am happier in ALL of my relationships and it is because I am the best version of myself everyday.  I can't thank them enough! I am now the person I have always know I could be. If you have any hesitation about NLP, I highly recommend trying and sticking with it - it will change your life!

Luke, Trauma Client

I had been suffering from PTSD for over 3 years due to the result of a traumatic assault I had received. Over the course of time from the assault and injuries I sustained, my personal life had fallen apart. I was not the same person I once was. My focus, memory and concentration levels were horrible compared to what they once were and I was not a pleasant person to be around. It all came to a head when my wife wanted a separation and I finally realized how far out of balance and control my life had gotten.

With the help of this amazing coach, who was so focused on getting my mental health to a place that it's never been before, we took the initial steps on this journey and haven't looked back - except to measure the progress that we've achieved. Allen took a different approach to working with my mental states and the issues that I was having than the other traditional therapists that I had seen. Instead of working on, talking about, and reliving the events that caused my family and me so much grief and pain, he bypassed the details and was hell-bent on focusing to get the solutions and results I needed, to move on and build the future of my dreams. From the bottom of my heart I thank you Allen, for your mission to heal people like me.
