Your company, yourself and your team...

I provide hands-on training, advice and coaching to get you and your company performing at your very best.

A qualified coach and mentor, I help from an individual up to corporate-strategy level to improve productivity and profits as well as motivation and morale.

I’ve been on this self-development journey for a long time, starting back in 1979. Now I'm one of the worlds most highly qualified hypnotherapists and an NLP practitioner. I draw on these skills to build employee well-being into corporate structures, to support employees and leaders to reduce stress and to improve productivity at every level.

I’ve gone through Les Brown, Tony Robbins & Brendon Burchard courses (to name a few), read countless books from self-development to psychoneuroimmunology and separated out what really works.

I started my own businesses and worked my way up in the corporate world and the charity sector, finally running projects, managing teams and training trainers. I trained as a Hypnotherapist some 8+ years ago and I’ve been doing this full time ever since, continuing to expand my knowledge in Hypnotherapy and also NLP, Coaching and Mindfulness. I’m presently studying for an MSc in Clinical Hypnotherapy which, although hard work, has been a wonderful experience for me; I’ve always been interested in the science of what I do and now I’m able to use private research papers that are usually inaccessible so that the methods I use can be truly Evidence Based.

This has encouraged me to blend Coaching and Hypnotherapy in a unique way, to fast-track through blocks and create empowering, rapid and radical change. I don’t fit you into my system; we fluidly create it around your needs.

  • Stopping smoking or habit reduction
  • Weight or body-image issues
  • Self-esteem and confidence

Brilliant by default

Rather than deal with each problem as it arises, wouldn't it be better to prevent them?

Through guided practice I will help you develop positive thinking, awareness and clarity which will keep you on top form.

Make better decisions, maintain confidence, keep calm in a crisis and become a leader who brings certainty to their team.

Business by design

The benefits of mindfulness are becoming well known, but how can one be 'at peace' and still drive a profitable company?

That 'zen' and commerce don't mix is a myth.

My methods put business first, honing the tools and techniques of mindfulness into valuable practices which help you meet the demands of stakeholders, customers and the marketplace.
