life change coaching
and hypnotherapy


Hi I am Lesley Hurst, great to meet you!

Why am I here...

Well some years ago, following a number of failed relationships, the collapse of a business and other personal issues I hit an extremely debilitating period of social anxiety (if you knew how much I talk, you would maybe not believe this!)
It was the most confusing time mentally as I grew more and more frustrated with the situation which was preventing me from living my best life.

I slowly started to realise that I was on a repeating cycle of behaviours and the famous quote from old Henry Ford resonated greatly…

If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got’

So I sought change.

I searched for a way to understand what had started this damaging cycle and recognise my strengths to enable me to move forward. This is what inspired me to train in Life Change Coaching, Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

I have assisted many people to move on, change direction, improve relationships (with themselves and others),start and grow businesses or take a new direction. Many clients have successfully overcome fears and phobias and reframed their anxiety to give them freedom and peace of mind.
