About me

I'm Neil Bailey - patient zero for viral kindness.

Whatever your challenges I'll work with you and help you gain clarity and momentum to act on your ideas. Don't wait for 'some day" take a first step 'today'.

I offer not-for-profit virtual/online video coaching.  All coaching fees go directly to CARA (Centre for Action on Rape and Abuse) through my Virgin Money Giving page.

There is a lot of kindness already in the world but also some truly awful things too. After many years of dabbling round the edges I now want to make as big a difference to the world as I can, so I came up with me Do Kindness idea, inspired by watching the Kindness Guy.

I wanted to make sure that people are acting on kindness not simply thinking kind thoughts, hence "do" kindness. It's all about action.

I initially set up the Do Kindness Facebook group to get people sharing acts of kindness, whether they were the person giving or receiving the kindness.

This though didn't feel enough. I was already offering my Life Coaching, Reiki, pet portraits and button jewellery as a way of potentially making a bit of money to top up my NHS salary. However it occurred to me that due to having M.E./CFS and Aspergers, getting out there and networking and spreading the word socially is a difficult thing for me, but what I do have is my time. So I decided to offer my coaching and other skills to people where any fees go directly to various charities that I'm passionate about.

Further information

I am a qualified coach, NLP Master Practitioner, Counsellor, MBTI step 2 Practitioner, and Reiki Master Teacher.

I've worked, trained and coached in a wide variety of sectors including: Local Government; Charity; NHS; Banking; Telecoms; Manufacturing; and Small Business at all levels of management and of course with you the individual.

Personally I regularly challenge myself using the techniques I use with clients. Fifteen years ago I was diagnosed with ME. Since then I've worked hard to continue a "normal" life and set targets to achieve.

Some testimonials

I have experienced two traumas in my life that left unwanted pictures replaying in my mind - and I would dread going to bed at night, when the memory of those traumas would come to the fore. On both occasions I turned to Neil for NLP.

Each time Neil was able to take me through a guided thought process which unblocked these visions; removed the stress attached to the memory, and left me free from the impact of both traumas.  The therapy was instantly effective each time, and I cannot thank Neil enough for his expert use of this amazing technique.” Mandy, Chelmsford

"Neil is a life coach who you can trust.  He will support you to lead all aspects of your life in a more positive and fulfilling way, whether it is work, relationships or your inner personal life.

I have tried various therapies, including: hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and counselling and have found that Neil’s style of life coaching has helped me the most.  You can communicate with Neil in whichever way is best for you and know that you are working with a genuine, safe person in a safe environment.  Neil can support you to reframe difficult situations and keep them in perspective and work with you to achieve your own personal goals.

With Neil’s life-coaching approach you can gain results much faster than with other therapies, which can become very costly in the long term.

Neil’s highly-developed skills and training combined with honesty, intelligence and integrity make him a life coach who is head and shoulders above all other life coaches and therapists." Susan, Chelmsford

"Neil is focussed and highly professional. He is quick to assess and understand, having and unerring ability to ask the right question at the right time. He enables and provokes new ways forward as well as emphatically supporting well timed action plans." Alex, Chelmsford
