Welcome to my profile

If you are reading my profile then you probably need help and you have come to the right place. 


I have always had a deep fascination with the mind and what drives human behaviour. As young girl I was a dreamer and would spend hours imagining the kind of life I wanted. I was already practicing NLP without even realising it! When I did realise the power of controlling my own mind, those dreams became my reality. Time and time again delivering the results I wanted. I created the amazing career and life style most people would only dream about - and you can do it too! 


The Seraphina Mind Studio is my my love, my passion and my joy. I established this company specifically to help people with set-set challenges to succeed. I welcome you to open your mind and make your dreams a reality. 

My journey into NLP and Hypnosis

I first encountered NLP and Hypnosis began back in 1997 when working for an American pharmaceutical company and quickly realised its potential not only for mental health, but as a rapid personal development tool for growing a business. I was hooked and became a junkie for learning everything related to accelerating personal and professional development. Over the years I have read countless mind training books, and attended numerous self-improvement workshops and courses. I have achieved accreditation as a hypnotherapy trainer, as well as International Master Practitioner certification in leading mind training therapies. 


However, before this, I had my own fair share of personal disappointment, set-backs and challenges. When these occurred I was prone to stepping into downward spirals. When I was happy, I would think the old me was gone - never to return - until the next downward spiral. Mind training therapies changed all of that and gave me back 'me' for good. This is why I now combine all my skills, experience and knowledge to help other people win over their own mind battles.  


What I love about my job is freeing my clients’ minds from self-limitation. I will never tire of the look of amazement on my clients faces when the problem they once had is no longer there. The greatest reward for me is making a seemingly impossible change possible for my clients and the joy it brings them. 


Special interests

I have a special interest in increasing positive mental health and learning in schools and have developed a highly successful program that is getting a lot of attention form educators, doctors and parents. It is so successful that we have been selected by the Learning Assessment and Neurocare centre in London, Horsham and Cheshire, to partner with them to help their ADHD/ASD clients.


I also have an interest in helping people with a stammer to increase fluency levels, and again, this is gaining immense recognition as clients not only increase fluency, but they also increase confidence and self-esteem. 

My background

I have had 30 wonderfully successful years in high flying careers working for the Health Secretary of State and pharmaceutical companies (Psychiatry), in recruitment and software service companies, before moving into professional development and training 10 years ago. I have been promoted far quicker than the norm in every job I have had and held roles from the ground floor to a Director of a fortune 500 company, before growing my own multimillion pound international company. I have mentored, coached and trained people across sales, professional services, finance, HR, IT and operations in roles from administration to COO. 


Some of my clients include some of the largest international blue chip organisations in the world. A small representation includes IBM, Deloitte, CAP Gemini, CSC, SAP, TEMENOS, Misys, Kimberly Clark, Toyota Financial Services, Barclays, Santander, Lloyds TSB, Schroder Private Bank, Plaut, Xansa, Frank Roberts Bakery and more.

Are You Struggling to Concentrate?

Turning negative minds into successful minds. 


Here at the Seraphina Mind Studio we have seen significant increases in the numbers of students and teachers referred for a broad range of stress and anxiety related problems. From poor concentration, focus, negative self-image, IBS, depression, OCD, eating disorders, stammering to self-harm and panic, the list is growing.


Stress and anxiety hormones are clinically proven to disable cognitive functioning, distorting feeling and emotions. Many of these problems could easily be minimised and even avoided with the correct mind training and knowledge.


Our Successful Minds Program has proved to be an invaluable tool set; many parents and teachers have been amazed at the positive changes they have experienced in themselves, their students and children. During exams some of the most negative, low-grade students became high achievers, attaining grades above their predicted expectations. They sailed through their exams calmly and confidently.
