Mental skills coaching with mind+health helps people to clarify their direction in life, identify the barriers that may be in the way, then explore and find strategies to overcome those barriers.

When thinking about health most people want to lose weight, gain muscle, eat better, drink less, or all the above. Most will know what they need to change and will have tried before but slipped back to old habits after a few weeks.

Mental skills coaching with mind+health is pro-active therapy that will help you to first clarify health and fitness goals that are specific to your needs, then make lasting lifestyle changes by addressing the barriers to change then exploring and finding strategies for overcoming these barriers.

Once the mental barriers have been overcome, the Mental Skills Coach can then help develop a plan for achieving those goals.


mind+health offers non-judgemental coaching to support you through times of depression, anxiety or frustration and help you find direction when you feel stuck.

There are times in life where you feel you simply can’t cope. This may be due to a major stress – grief or loss, or a number of stressors – work, family, health, study, loneliness. Other times low mood, depression, frustration, or anxiety can simply hit out of the blue with no triggering event. It is frustrating to feel stuck with no clarity on how to get unstuck.

Support from a mind+health Mental Skills Coach will help you to gain strategies to allow you to, not only find the light at the end of the tunnel, but work on gaining clarity to take the steps to get there.

mind+health coaching is non-judgemental and supports you to find your way through the tough times to rediscover the joy in your life. mind+health support is also useful for those who wish to change a negative habit or addiction in a caring environment with no judgement.


Explore and find the psychological strategies you can employ to gain the edge in physical and mental performance.

Many high performers are looking for the tweak they can make in training or practice that will allow them to edge ahead of the competition. When physical training is at its peak, the edge can come in the form of psychological strategies.

mind+health coaching will also allow you to prioritise training and life outside of training to ensure balance and avoid burnout. Mental skills coaching also helps you to move on from perceived failures in performance in a supportive, non-judgemental environment.

With mind+health coaching you can explore and find the strategies that can give you the psychological edge you need to perform at your best.

flight confidence

mind+health is working alongside Nelson Aviation College to offer a unique course for those that suffer from flight anxiety.

Flight anxiety is a fear of flying that is so profound that it can prevent a person from travelling by air or cause great distress to a person when air travel is necessary. People who are affected by flight anxiety find flying terrifying and will go to extremes to avoid flying, which can sometimes be life-limiting.

Over our four-week course we will help you to grow your knowledge of flying and develop your confidence in an aircraft, so that you too can enjoy the industry that we are so passionate about.
