What is Coaching with NLP?
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a group of ideas and techniques for helping people experience clarity in their lives.

Before embarking on a coaching session I usually start with a FREE 30 minute Zoom discovery session to discuss your requirements.

What to expect from coaching?

I give clients the space to be open without being judged.
I care about (you) the client and give you the time that you need.
I teach strategies for being able to cope with anxiety and stress.
I offer a flexible approach to coaching sessions and give you the space you need to explore what is going on for you, without judgement.
My coaching sessions are thorough and thought provoking. Throughout the coaching journey you are not alone and together we take it one step at a time to get results. To build your confidence so that you can move forward.

I am passionate about acheiving positive outcomes for my clients.

I very much work from the heart and care about the outcomes for my clients. As much as possible I would like the opportunity to spend time with you and help you develop your inner resources to deal with stressful situations and learn how to deal with them through coaching and counselling.

"After several years of major stresses in my life, the death of my mother and the
birth of my last child, I felt like I'd lost control of my ability to deal with stress.
I had been suffering from anxiety and panic attack for some time, at what felt to
me like completely random moments.
Being someone who has quite pronounced trust issues and a previous negative
experience with counselling, I looked for someone I felt I could trust and really
open up to.
In Andrew I found a true kindred spirit, someone who made me feel completely
safe and valued.
I found myself opening up in a way that really surprised me.
Andrew provides such a warm and open space, you find yourself letting go of
all the issues that have been bottled up inside and in letting go, you reach a
place of deep inner calm.
My sessions felt so relaxed, much like talking to an old friend.
I never once felt led or forced in any one direction but somehow Andrew guided
me through all the issues in my life that had brought me to this point in time
and then guided me back out the other side a totally different person. One who
can now manage the feelings of rising stress before they lead to the anxiety
and stress of the past.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Andrew to anyone, whatever the issue, in
Andrew you will find somebody who really cares." LIZ

"I found in Andrew a like soul who was attuned to my way of thinking and understood, without much ado, where I was and where I wanted to be. He provided me with a safe environment to share private thoughts and emotions and enabled me to look at myself from a different perspective, to let go of old self images and move on to re-imagine my world. Time well spent." JOHN

"On a sightseeing trip, leaving a cathedral and following exit signs. We got stuck in a lobby with no exit doors available. I started to feel real gut wrenching panic in my stomach and brain. But it seemed to happen in slow motion. And I remembered my recent clean spaces coaching session about anxiety. So I spoke out loud about my internal experience and it started to ease. Then I gathered my resources and used them. By the time they rescued us I was as cool as a cucumber again. It was quite astonishing to notice how I coached myself away from panic to calm." STEVE

“Another knock back put me in a place that I didn’t want to be. So, after three nights of no sleep, I decided to do something about it. I’ve had so many counseling sessions in the past and wanted to try something different. How lucky was I to find Andrew. From my initial meeting I knew I wanted to try NLP. I actually looked forward to our meetings as every session was different, although you can re visit anything if you’re not sure. Andrew, well, he has a warmth about him that makes you feel relaxed and at ease. I’m not going to go into NLP as it is adapted to you, but here I am a few months later holding my head up high and not looking back.” HELEN

"Whilst studying for my degree in the final stages I was unable to motivate myself to work on my dissertation in spite of having the knowledge at hand. I was actively self sabotaging and procrastinating with no idea why. Working through neurological levels with Andrew uncovered my unconscious reasons for doing so and upon examining and exploring them deeper my motivation returned and I successfully finished the project." JOANNE

"Several years ago I suffered immense trauma that threw me into PTSD. As a therapist myself I understood the neurobiological reasons why the trauma kept coming to the fore leaving me stuck even though I had engaged in much therapy. I had an NLP session with Andrew in which we went through a timeline exercise. During this session I was able to bring into consciousness all the fear that I had felt at the time but had disassociated from. The experience enabled my brain to revisit the trauma and store the memory correctly thus enabling me to move forward." LUCY
