Francis has had an interesting and varied career, including working in agriculture, motor and leisure industries. After 12 years of running his own outdoor event company he retrained first becoming a Practitioner then Master Practitioner of NLP. Now a Personal Coach he works with people who are stressed, anxious or have mild depression.

“I love to help people identify and focus on their inner strengths. Working with people is something I’ve always done. For me nothing is more rewarding than when you help someone take back control of their life and make positive changes.”



Annie is a BACP Registered Psychotherapist, Master Practitioner of NLP, Nurse and Midwife based in Wimborne, Dorset. Annie set up her first business fourteen years ago and since then has helped many people and organisations develop. Along the way she coached and supported individuals under pressure, lacking in confidence and struggling to balance the demands of their job and family life.

“As an experienced clinician and therapist I’m able to draw on over 30 years experience in health and social care to help people change and overcome problems. Helping people to resolve troublesome behaviours, overcome limiting beliefs, deal with their confidence and emotional issues can make a big difference in their lives. I have always had a passion for working with and helping people. ”

“My passion has also been put to good use in the corporate world where I have been working to improve the empowerment and wellbeing of tomorrows leaders.”


Over a 3rd of the UK work force are unhappy. According to CV library, a recent survey unveils the careers below have the lowest job satisfaction:

  1. Marketing – 57.1%
  2. Legal – 54.5%
  3. Hospitality – 53.3%
  4. Accounting – 50%
  5. IT – 50%
  6. Recruitment – 46.2%
  7. Engineering – 44.8%
  8. Charity – 43.8%
  9. Agriculture – 42.9%
  10. Retail – 42.1%


One contributing factor to this sense of dissatisfaction must be the underlying sense of paranoia there seems to be – as according to an employment study from Adzuna, ‘two out of five workers believe they are paid less than their colleagues for doing the same job’. (Sky)


This can lead to many issues inside a organisation including problems with high staff turnover, lack of motivation across the work force lower productivity and increased numbers of mistakes and complaints. On top of all this the knock on effect can have a big impact on profitability.

One to one counselling Sessions are confidential, giving you freedom to talk about things you may not feel comfortable discussing with anyone else.


Most of us will be tested at some point during our lifetime; maybe it will be about having to deal with financial worries, redundancy, the sudden death of someone we cared about, domestic violence, divorce, family breakdown, respond to confrontation or bullying and harassment in the workplace or at school. Even exam pressures at times can seem too much to deal with.


Whatever the cause, we appreciate that such events present enormous personal challenge and understand that no two people will respond in exactly the same manner.


You can come to us in Wimborne or we can come to you for counselling in Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Ringwood and the surrounding areas.

One-to-One Performance Coaching


One-to-one performance coaching and therapy involves an initial face to face chat, obligation free, to learn more about you and what you want to achieve. During our time together we will agree how future sessions.


Both coaching and therapy take place over a period of time, usually around six months though sometimes longer. We appreciate that some people will need less and others may need more, at the end of the day it’s about you and your progress.


Group Coaching Sessions


We run group coaching sessions across Bournemouth, Poole, Wareham, Christchurch and Wimborne. If you would prefer to work as part of a smaller group then this can be arranged. We aim to keep our groups small so that you get more chance to share learning, expertise and experiences with other group members, in other words to chance to develop a stronger bond and deeper relationship within the group. Group energy and dynamics are carefully managed to ensure maximum benefit for all involved.
