About me

Hi there! I'm not your average coach - I believe in bringing a sense of humour and light-heartedness to the table while still delivering results.  

My unique blend of empathy and humour creates a safe and supportive environment where you can work towards your goals.  Whether you're feeling stuck or just need a push in the right direction, I'm here to help; and I'll bring my 25 years of coaching experience with me (I know, I don't look that old!  That's very kind of you to say).

I have three primary focusses:

1) All things wellbeing from health and fitness to time management and work life blend. 
2) Low Support Autistics (because I am one myself) coaching helping LSA's navigate and thrive in a world that doesn't get them.
3) Sustainability coaching helping individuals live a more environmentally sustainable life.

I work with individuals solely through online video calls making it easy to be flexible and meaning no travelling, parking and waiting room issues.

I come armed with:

  • a Master NLP coaching certification and a relentless passion for helping you unleash your superhero potential.
  • A potent blend of empathy and humour. You won't find any stiff suits around here, just a comfy, judgment-free zone where you can chase your dreams. I'm here to nudge you in the right (and sometimes hilarious) direction.
  • I've spent over two decades masterminding corporate training sessions that whip managers and leaders into shape, imparting those elusive "soft" skills. So, if your mission involves sprucing up your professional mojo, consider me your secret weapon.
  • I'm also a personal trainer and running coach. This message particularly goes out to all you chronic illness warriors too. With my personal journey navigating Fibromyalgia and Autism, I've challenged the art of using paced fitness to kick the world's chaos where it hurts.

So, what's the holdup, my friend? If I'm the right coach for you, then I'm ready to be on your team.

Additional information

I know times are tight and paying out for block bookings can be difficult.  Therefor I have stopped asking for block bookings and work on a session by session basis.

Bear in mind that from past experience has shown it usually takes 3 to 5 sessions on average to get the best from coaching.

I always recommend a short, free, no-obligation connection video call first so we can meet and you can ask me your questions.  This is so you can decide if I'm the right coach for you.

When I work

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

I offer evening and weekend appointments.  Simply contact me and we'll get a mutual time booked in.

Further information

I am a qualified coach, NLP Master Practitioner, Counsellor, MBTI step 2 and Insights 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 Fibromyalgia. Since then I've worked hard to continue a "normal" life and set targets to achieve.

Some testimonials

"If you’re fortunate enough to find Neil Bailey has a free slot, book it! You won’t regret it.

As a high performance coach myself with high expectations and pretty exacting standards it takes a lot to impress me.

Neil did just this from the get-go with his insightful, personable and highly experienced, professional approach. Don’t be fooled by the quiet demeanour. This gent is a pro with a dry wit which belies the connections and ideas being formed below the surface.

If you're looking for a coach who will really care, and will commit to helping you resolve whatever it is has brought you to seek one out, sign up! "  Kit, Scotland


"Neil is an exceptional coach. I spent several days shopping around for the right person to help. It happened to be the weekend when I contacted Neil. He got back to me despite it being a Saturday. I appreciated this ever so much because when you are desperate for change, you do hope for help imminently.

We talked the next day… a Sunday… for an introductory discussion. He spent more time than any other coaches understanding my situation and already I felt like he had helped me. It was so thorough that I thought maybe I would be charged for the time we talked but it was free. I was so impressed already and the rapport was excellent.

The sessions exceeded what I had hoped for. Neil gets straight to the root of the problem and works quickly to help you. I gained so much from each session. I learned skills that I can carry around with me forever. Neil was without a doubt, the best coach for me.

At first I was a bit apprehensive about working over Skype. I thought I needed to work with someone one-to-one but actually working remotely was not a problem at all. It made it more affordable and saved time and money on travel.

When I was first looking for a coach, my problems seemed insurmountable. But I only needed three sessions with Neil to gain equilibrium again and see the positive changes I wanted. If I ever needed any coaching in the future, I would contact Neil without hesitation. I was very lucky to find such a highly skilled coach and right on my doorstep. A coach of his calibre I thought you would only find in a metropolitan city.

I can’t thank Neil enough for affecting my life so dramatically, positively and quickly. "  Joanne, Essex


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
