What is Coaching & NLP

Coaching | NLP


Coaching is a form of support for you as you decide what you want to achieve in your career, relationships, health, finances - in fact any area of your life.

Coaching has developed from the stages of mentoring and guiding to empower people like you to make decisions about your life and to support you whilst taking the necessary action to achieve what you decide you want.

Some of the benefits of coaching include:-

How is coaching different from other forms of support?

The key differences between coaching and all the other forms of support you can seek including counselling, mentoring etc. is that:

Coaches aren’t the expert in the situation – you are the best person to judge what’s right for you – so you won’t be given advice or told what to do.

Coaches expect you to take action – coaching is not about talking about an issue without taking action to make a change. So if you’re not willing to do something to improve your current situation, coaching won’t be the right path for you at this time.

And, don’t worry if you don’t know what action to take now, that’s where our expert coaches will help you…

How Coaching Works

Coaching sessions last 1 hour. These can be either face-to-face or over the telephone.

Having a series of coaching sessions is ideal because this enables you to build up momentum to be empowered to continue with your action plans after the coaching sessions finish. We suggest that booking a series of 4 coaching sessions is a good starting point. But, some people like to see whether coaching is for them and so one-off sessions can be arranged.

To book your coaching sessions, call us on 023 9286 4107 or complete the contact form.

NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming is the study of how our minds work. At the heart of NLP is a wide range of methods and models to help us understand how we think, behave and communicate.


NLP techniques provide the skills for us to define and achieve our outcomes and goals.


NLP provides practical tools for becoming highly skilled communicators and for building rapport with others to enhance our relationships.

Mastering Your Mind

NLP techniques provide a 'user manual' for the brain so that you can choose your response to whatever happens to you.

From AA Milne:-

"How can you get very far if you don't know who you are?

How can you do what you ought, if you don't know what you've got?

And if you don't know which to do of all the things in front of you, then what you'll have when you are through is just a mess without a clue.

Of all the best that can come true, if you know what and which and who."
