I have lived with a chronic condition for most of my life.  It held me back in my younger years massively,   In 2000  I found Reiki, this was life changing and became Reiki Master in 2002.  I began the journey of therapist and coach in 2005  and trained in hypnosis and NLP with Paul McKenna. and Richard Bandler.  I used my newly acquired skills to improve myself and quite quickly others asked for me to help them too.  I continued my training in hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, coaching and mindfulness.  I now have an amazing life, seeing clients 1 to 1 in person or by video link, running groups, workshops and retreats at home and abroad.

What is the difference between therapy and coaching?

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.

What Clients Have Said

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.
