“Helping you to help yourself, to help others”…

Hi, We are Ian & Lesley!  Cognitive Behavioural Coaches and ACT Trainers (Acceptance Commitment Therapy), with experience and
background of working within a Community Mental Health Team and Practice Manger for NHS funded practices, now running our own private family practice. 

Our Story

 We would introduce you to a ground-breaking approach called Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) which has been proven scientifically with years of evidence, showing that it helps people struggling with stress, anxiety, anger, depression and relationship difficulties or, those who just wanting to find a more rich and meaningful life.

 We believe everyone should have access to low cost talking therapy, time unlimited, as and when needed. Using the principles of ACT, we can help you discover how to manage and deal with your issues by teaching you skills to:

  • Reduce stress, worry and low moods
  • Rise above fear, doubt and insecurity
  • Handle painful thoughts and feelings more effectively
  • Break self-defeating habits
  • Build more satisfying relationships

Our Values & Beliefs

Relationships are important to us

As husband and wife we are relationship coaches, coaching for over a decade with years of experience of improving relationships with couples, families and teams. We provide a private and confidential personal service, with support and encouragement to help you find out what’s draining your relationships and resolve any conflict.

Acceptance of things that are not in our control

We help individuals, couples & families who struggle with mood, anxiety, or psychotic symptoms, ACT trains us to notice the uncomfortable emotion or thought and acknowledge it, but to let it flow by without holding on to it or letting it drive our actions in that moment in line with our values and what or who is important to us. 

Committed Valued Action

ACT is a self-directed process. We help you define your values,  discuss with you,  your challenges and help you identify and describe negative coping strategies. You determine the actions you will take to resolve those challenges by using your values as a compass and guide.
