Arielle Essex

Arielle has worked as extraordinary healer, coach and trainer since 1988, both in the UK and abroad. Her current approach combines practical psychology, NLP, hypnosis, non verbal intelligence, emotional intelligence and coaching, which evolved organically from 12 years practising osteopathy, naturopathy & kinesiology. She founded Practical Miracles NLP Trainings in 1996 and has been delivering fully certified trainings ever since.

As a coach, Arielle wears several different hats: specialist health coaching, personal relationship coaching, and leadership coaching. Adept at applying many different psychological and NLP tools, Arielle assists and empowers individuals to reach their full potential. And she is walking testimony of how well these tools work.

After Arielle succeeded in healing her own brain tumour using this approach, she decided to share what helped in her first book, ‘Compassionate Coaching’. She also featured in the recent documentary DVD, ‘The Living Matrix’ movie, telling her story. She is committed to helping people turn life’s obstacles into gifts, empowering them to find their own solutions, and reconnecting with Source. So she regularly writes articles, books and newsletters as well as giving talks, presentations and workshops internationally.

Because many life problems stem from relationship issues, Arielle trained with clinical psychologist, Dr. Chuck Spezzano to learn how to apply the transformative thinking of ‘A Course in Miracles’ to problematic issues. She works with individuals and couples using a blend of these principles, combined with NLP and John Gottman’s well researched approach.

Integrating her NLP know how with insights from non verbal and emotional intelligence, makes her a much sought after guide for executives desiring better leadership skills. Arielle mentors them on improving their delivery style, resolving interpersonal issues, making strategic career moves, and helping to design and deliver presentations.

Arielle’s broad base of experience makes for a truly holistic and deep approach. She has full certification in: NLP master practitioner and trainer (USA), hypnotherapy & time line re-imprinting, coaching (Erickson College), NVI (non verbal intelligence), EI (emotional intelligence), cranial/sacral therapy, allergy therapy, naturopathy, kinesiology, and she is a fully qualified NES practitioner.

Johnathan Brooks

Johnathan is a Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and has a post graduate certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Currently he is completing his MA in Coaching and NLP and is a member of The Professional Guild of NLP.

He is a Native American from the Northern Cheyenne and Cree tribes of Montana, USA. Dedicated to the interpretation of shamanic wisdom for today’s ever changing world. His shamanic message is from the perspective that all things are alive and that we are part of a community of co-creative and potentially co-operative beings. The shamanic attitude is one of reverence and honour for all life in all its forms and of responsibility to that community.

He shows how to be like a magician, by entering into a partnership with nature and combining it with NLP. This cooperative partnership is an expression of mutual respect and of the community of life. He has simplified the shamanic wisdom to fun and practical everyday city uses, with results that really do work on resolving persistent problems for a creative, abundant and an inspirational rewarding life.

His background is varied from Business & Finance diplomas to professional medical qualifications to Equity acting to designing and delivering a tailored training modules for the media industry.

He is the author of a new home study course on the How to Manifest, Living in a Spiritual World – Purposeful Manifestation Through Focusing.
