BWRT Advanced Practioner and Master Coach - Clinical Hypnotherapist- Psychotherapist- NLP Practioner and Coach- Mindfulness Teacher


I am an experienced and  highly skilled therapist and coach.  I have helped clients make a fast and lasting change since 2000. Do you want to find calm and lose the anxiety and stress from your life?Are you letting things slip just once to often? Are your limiting beliefs stopping you from the life you long for? Are you successful in some areas of life and not others? Do you want to increase self-esteem and confidence? Are you wondering is this all there is? Life is too short to be unhappy, unfulfilled, or unsure. By using cutting-edge psychological therapeutic tools, along with traditional practices, l will help you make those changes as quickly as possible. 

For most of my life, I have lived with a chronic condition, and despite this, I have had several successful businesses. After fifteen years as a Podiatrist and Osteopath in private practice, 2000 was the year that I discovered Reiki, this was life-changing, and I became Reiki Master Teacher in 2002. In 2003 I started a property development company, and the results are still evident in the property portfolio I own, covering several areas of the UK and abroad. My journey as a coach and therpist began in 2005, training in NLP and hypnosis with Richard Bandler and Paul McKenna. I took my newly acquired skill set to make fast, lasting change in my life, improving every level.   Others saw that change and quickly asked for me to help them too. As a coach, my journey continued with further training in NLP Coaching, hypnotherapy, and Mindfulness at Central England College, BWRT, with The Terence Watts BWRT Institute. I am an advanced practitioner and Master Coach and Psychotherapy, WSN personality profiling and coaching at the Essex Institute. I now have a wonderful life, seeing clients 1 to 1 in person or by video call, running workshops and retreats at home and abroad.

Freedom from anxiety, OCD, PTSD addictions and more

BWRT® stands for 'BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®'. It is a model of psychology created by UK psychotherapist Terence Watts. It is a science-based way of working that deals with uncomfortable emotional or psychological triggers before they come into awareness. Most methodologies work by responding to a stimulus after it has come to our attention. BWRT® deals with the problem before it enters awareness in the conscious mind, at source. It results in you feeling better and able to react more appropriately. BWRT® is a very fast, highly effective, and lasting.

How can I help you? Below are just a few ways  I can accompany you on your journey to Being The best You Can!

Lose The Stress


Are you experiencing stress? It is probably affecting all areas of your life, making you feel anxious, irritable. Is it affecting your work, your relationships, and your long term physical and emotional health 
The body responds to danger by releasing hormones into the bloodstream, immediately giving us an edge both physically and mentally, giving us more strength and mental alertness to help us survive. In this fast-paced life we live, repeatedly, our stress buttons are pressed. Instead of escaping from a saber tooth tiger, we are stressed about important presentations, getting stuck in traffic, and meeting targets. The result is continuously having to experience feelings of danger and readiness at the expense of being calm and relaxed.
The impact that this can have on our lives can be dramatic. Stress can result in a wide range of emotional problems, including anger, anxiety, panic, obsessive thoughts, and addiction. It can also affect our physical level leading to insomnia and a poorly functioning immune system.
With a unique blend of therapy, you will immediately start to feel more confident in your ability to do whatever you desire. Tailored especially to you, enabling you to access the resources that you have within you to change the way you think about yourself in any situation, replacing fear with confidence and self-belief.


Find the calm


Is anxiety affecting all areas of your life? Are you avoiding doing certain things? Is it preventing you from the life you want?

Anxiety attacks can produce an unpleasant cocktail of symptoms; sweating palms, nausea, palpitations, hyperventilation, and feelings of paranoia. As specific circumstances usually trigger anxiety, many people find themselves avoiding those situations. In itself, this can exacerbate the problem, especially if those situations involve work, travel, or socialising.

With a unique blend of therapies, you can overcome anxiety, allowing you to be more physically relaxed and mentally calmer. 


Lose The Fear


 Fears of heights, spiders, needles, cats, lifts, dentists, buttons, and clowns, to name, are just a few phobias that can be successfully treated. 

Hypnotherapy, BWRT, TFT, and NLP bypass your conscious mind and focus on retraining your unconscious experience. In little as a single session, you can be free of the subject of your phobia, and it will no longer have that extreme and debilitating power over you. You will be left relaxed and more confident in those specific situations where you used to be anxious or panicky, leaving equipped to live to the full.


Manage The Weight


Are you are fed up of yo-yo dieting,

Are you fed up of feeling deprived,

Are you fed up of feeling hungry,

Are you fed up of feeling fed up and guilty about what you eat,

Are you just plain fed up of dieting?

A unique blend of therapy will help you permanently change your relationship with food, enabling you to effortlessly lose weight and stay in control, ultimately becoming the size and shape you desire. And as part of the process, will also help you to feel physically more relaxed, mentally calmer and, so much more confident within yourself.

Enjoy what you eat and still lose weight?Eliminate food cravings?Identify food toxins?

​Stop feeling guilty about what you eat?

Have control of how you feel and how you look?

Watch the inches come off without dieting?

Improve your self esteem?

Program of 6 Sessions  £395

Virtual Gastric Band Program £395 for 4 sessions

Find Your Edge


Do you want the edge to be the top of your game? Whether it be in business, sport, the arts, or anything else you can be.

Do you find yourself slipping just a little too often? Are you finding yourself failing to deliver at that crucial moment, whether it be an important presentation, competition, show, or exam? Very often, when the stakes are high, we fail to deliver to our full potential.

Enhancing performance and being at the top of our game is all about a state of mind. It's about controlling our emotions, focusing on our desired outcome, and believing that we can do it. Whether it is Bill gates or Lewis Hamilton, top achievers in all fields use psychological techniques to help them perform at their best. With cutting-edge psychological techniques on a coaching framework, we can reprogram habitual patterns of behaviour, ensuring that we perform to our true potential.

Are you being the best you can?


Slowing Down The Clock


Aging unplugged is a program to help you live your life as well as possible for as long as possible.  It is suited for all ages, from a young entrepreneur wanting to keep their energy levels up and stay healthy, for someone in later middle age wanting to a boost and enjoy the last few years of their career and looking forward to a long and active retirement to someone in their eighties wanting to keep the spark mentally and physical staying well and active.

Transform your life and find the freedom to live being the best you can


The main difference between therapy and coaching is how the work is focused. Therapy focuses on mental health and emotional healing, while life coaching focuses on setting and achieving goals moving forward to being the best you can.  This does not man that they are mutually exclusive.  Major life changing work benefits from being on a coaching frame work and coaching benefits greatly by the use of therapeutic interventions to breakthrough limiting beliefs.  


Yes you can, in fact I insist.  The free session allows us to plan our way forward and ensures we re a good match.  It allows you to get to know me and the way I work, establishing rapport as we start our journey together.


For therapy you wil need between 1 and 6 sessions, more complex problems will take longer.  With cutting edge techniques such as BWRT phobias and addictions it can be as little as a single session. Coaching tends to be between 6 and12 sessions, dependant on what you would like to achieve. 

Fees are:

£70 per session for therapy

£85 per session for coaching

programs are available which brings cost down

When affordability is an issue, I have a number of pay what you can places, contact me for further details.

What Clients Have Said

Home: Testimonials

I was suffering from crippling anxiety and it had started to affect all areas of my life. I had confided in a friend who recommended Lesley. We did it all online via Skype and by session three I felt a different person, by session six I felt ready to start living my best life.  I know myself better and feel better equipped for the the good and bad times ahead.

Anna Chester

I had been asked to appear in a large work related court case and absolutely terrified. It  took just one session with Lesley to sort out my fears. Three weeks later I was on the stand for a whole day, couldn't believe it, not a problem. I would not hesitate in recommending Lesley. Cannot thank her enough.

Robert Edinburgh

Lesley helped me lose five stone in six months and I have kept it off. Something I wasn't expecting extra was my stress disappeared too.
