About us
Who we are

We are an established group, experienced in offering Mind & Life Coaching, NLP Coaching and Cognitive Re-alignment Therapy, as well as Hypnotherapy and Reiki Healings.

Across our practice, it is not just qualification and training that we bring to our clients, but the combined experience of overcoming a lifetime of challenges including manic depression, high stress corporate pressures, nervous breakdown, family struggles, divorce, child custody battles, financial problems and bad life choices, but this is not what ultimately defines us unless we let it.

We find that actually having sat on 'the other side of the table' gives us a deeper insight into what our clients are actually experiencing, and this provides a level of trust and confidence in us that increases the benefits we can bring.

We also provide Executive & Corporate Proactive Mental Health Education and Coaching through our Sister Organisation NCG:Corporate, where we teach about how your brain works, how to optimise its performance and resilience, and how to prevent workplace burnout taking you down a path to poor mental health and eventually mental illness. Find out more about this area, and link to NCG:Corporate here.
Life, Mind and NLP Coaching:

A life coach encourages and counsels on a range of professional and personal issues and is typically engaged to help you with specific professional projects, personal goals and transitions.

They help you understand the steps you might need to undertake to reach your goals, and work with you to set milestones which keep you headed in your chosen direction.



We often find it helpful to talk problems through with a friend or family member, but sometimes friends and family cannot help us and we need to talk to a professional therapist.

Talking therapies involve talking to someone who is trained to help you deal with your negative feelings. They can help anyone who is experiencing distress. You do not have to be told by a doctor that you have a mental health problem to be offered or benefit from a talking therapy.
Reiki Healing:

A non-invasive complementary therapy that has been taught and used in the UK since the late 1900s, but Eastern medicine has, for thousands of years, worked with this energy, recognising its flow through all living things.

Reiki supports orthodox medicine and is widely used in the NHS, and it can be used alone, but is not a replacement for traditional medication or treatments. It is not based on any belief, faith or suggestion, yet, scientific research into quantum physics is starting to help us to understand how Reiki healing may work to benefit the individual.

We practice Traditional Usui Reiki Ryoho Healing, with over 80 individual hand placement sets, targeting specific issues or ailments.

Hypnosis is thought to work by altering our state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert.

The conscious control of the mind is inhibited, and the subconscious mind awoken. Since the subconscious mind is a deeper-seated, more instinctive force than the conscious mind, this is the part that has to change for your behaviour and physical state to alter.

Progress can only be made by reprogramming the subconscious so that deep-seated instincts and beliefs are abolished or altered.
