I am a Personal Change and Development Specialist, an accredited NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner, a Certified NLP Trainer and an accredited Hypnotherapist.
For many years I followed a successful career in education, focusing on the Special Needs sector. As Headteacher of a Special School for pupils with Severe Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, I was responsible for working closely with and motivating staff and pupils, dealing with challenging situations and devising innovative ways of learning.
I have also worked as a freelance database developer and successfully developed software systems for schools across the UK.
NLP and coaching
I first encountered NLP as a teacher working with young people and their families, coaching both those experiencing difficulties and high-performing students.
After progressing from a career in education, I took NLP Diploma and Practitioner training and followed this up with Hypnotherapy training. I completed my Master Practitioner with Michael Carroll at the NLP Academy in Croydon. Keen to have the best Trainers Training available, I also studied with Carmen Bostic St Clair and John Grinder, one of the original co-creators of NLP.
Working as a trainer, coach and therapist, I have become known for my depth of knowledge and understanding in the application of NLP patterns to coaching. Over time I have built an international reputation for excellence in NLP training.

“During his time at Nortonthorpe Hall School Andrew developed and nurtured a group of hard-working staff to support the complex needs of an extremely difficult pupil base. Andrew brilliantly matched the skills of his staff to the different job roles and successfully launched a nurture group and nurture classrooms. This movement was instrumental in effectively meeting the needs of many of the pupils, all of whom were experiencing severe social emotional and behavioural difficulties. Andrew’s coaching skills are excellent and he always draws out the best from his colleagues and pupils. He maintains an aura of calm and has a great sense of humour.” Senior Manager, Nortonthorpe Hall School
