I have been in the health and wellness industry for over 10 years now and have constantly expanded what I can do to help people.
It has reached a point where I can offer a complete package of physical and mental health services to individuals and corporations, and the list of services is so long that most people don’t know the full extent of what I do, even my friends and existing clients!
So, in order to make it easier for people to know how I can help them or their business, here is an overview of what it is exactly that I do.
I begun my fitness and health career in 2010 qualifying as a personal trainer and nutrition consultant with specialist certificates in postural correction, obesity management and boxing. I soon added kettlebells, suspension training, pre- and postnatal care, group training, spinning and many other things to my offering as I progressed in the industry.
Having worked as a mobile personal trainer in North London for a couple of years with a small team of consultant trainers under me, I then decided to move up north to Alderley Edge and setup my own private personal training and consulting studio.
I did an NLP for sport course in 2012 which I absolutely loved, as I could see the power of the mind in achieving success at sport, and how the techniques used clearly had very many ‘non sport’ applications too.
I then set about studying NLP extensively, reading books and doing courses with with people such as Paul McKenna, Richard Bandler (the co-founder of NLP) and Jimmy Petruzzi to deepen my knowledge and skill.
As a qualified Practitioner of NLP I started using it to great effect to remove people’s addictions, phobias, fears and boost people’s confidence among many other applications, including some life coaching work.
This work, alongside my fitness consulting, led me to research more and more into the human mind, leading me to qualify as a hypnotherapist in 2013 and a mindfulness and meditation tutor. In early 2019, as my work became increasingly focused on mental health and performance, I became a certified Havening Techniques Practitioner. Havening is a groundbreaking psycho-sensory technique facilitating rapid relief from issues such as phobias , PTSD, addiction, depression and anxiety, and is something I now use daily in my clinics.
All of my training and experience has brought my holistic offering to a place where I feel that I can offer a unique and all encompassing physical and mental transformation service to clients. I am also able to offer the full complement of my mental health and coaching services to anywhere in the world over videolink, which is something I regularly do.
Since 2014 I have been very active in the area of corporate wellness and can now facilitate a full corporate health service including; consultation at a strategic level, staff health checks done by qualified nurses (and follow up strategic reporting), seminars, workshops and private consulting with staff. I work with several large corporate clients in this area all over the UK, and for more details please visit my Corporate Services page.
I am also able to offer bespoke health, fitness and /or mindset coaching retreats at an incredible venue in Andalusia, Spain on a request only basis. These are perfectly suited to small groups of friends looking for a total physical and mental health transformation in a short space of time, or executive groups in business for some health and wellness fuelled, transformational team bonding.
A Typical Week
In a typical week I will now see just two or three clients for fitness consulting (much less than in the past). I usually have some corporate work, which will either be a seminar or workshop or some hypnotherapy or coaching with individual staff within a business. The main part of my week will then be made up of private clients for hypnotherapy, NLP, coaching and/or Havening (or a combination of all of these modalities). This work can vary from releasing phobias or coaching to working with general anxiety, depression, addiction or complex symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress. I will also usually have corporate health projects to oversee and manage as well as group classes with consultant trainers, and plenty of admin and social media profiles to keep on top of as well as managing leads, existing clients and new enquiries.
It’s a busy lifestyle but it’s so varied and interesting that it is an extremely enjoyable and rewarding career. The biggest bonus of all is that I can help people every day whilst genuinely loving what I do.
In the last couple of years, my highlights have been:
- Training and mentoring the well known actor and presenter Les Dennis from being completely unfit to completing the gruelling Tough Guy event for Sport Relief 2018, and featuring in the BBC documentary about the journey.
- Working with Coronation Street’s Colson Smith as a life coach for 18 months now and helping him to achieve the most remarkable and inspiring physical and mental transformation in that time, with the best, undoubtedly yet to come.
- Writing a book (soon to be released) with an amazing Educational Psychologist, Dawn Starley, aimed at helping children to release their fears and thrive. Click here to register your interest.
- Improving my phobia work so that a simple phobia can now often be removed in just 1-2 hours.
- Achieving fantastic results with hundreds of clients spanning a 90 year age range, including people who had suffered from lifelong phobias, anxiety, depression or PTSD. My oldest client has been a 95 year old and my youngest has been just 5 years old, and both were helped equally effectively.
After all of my training and experience, I now strongly believe that I can help absolutely anyone, no matter what the issues are, to feel significantly better than they did before they met me. With a bit of mutual effort I also believe I can achieve complete health transformations and resolution of practically any mental challenges. Where necessary, I have also built a huge network of incredible professionals in every single aspect of physical and mental health who I can call upon and refer people to with the utmost confidence.
It has taken a long time to build this holistic offering and to deliver it with confidence and also to build such a strong referral network to back it up, but it has been worth it.
Thank you for reading, and I have now hopefully answered many of the questions you might have had for me!
