Our Shared Purpose
To inspire and develop people to live and work with less stress – building skills to create the capacity to be more effective
A shared experience
Our experience in operational military service and the lack of preventative mental wellbeing action led us to develop Genesis.
We believe that preventative mental wellbeing action is a shared responsibility between leadership, managers and individuals. This was key to us and is key to our customers teams.
Genesis was created with the support of leading mental health experts; it’s an approach that builds high-performance cultures of continued learning with the aim of permeating preventative skills from recruitment through to retirement.

As a former police officer that experienced his own period of ill health, he brings a wealth of first hand professional as well as personal experience of just how debilitating burnout and poorly managed stress can be. Furthermore, Zane has a hard won appreciation of just what’s required in recovery and future preparation to ensure that it doesn’t take grip again.
This is experience that he now brings to his coaching and training, with a firm emphasis on building key healthy habits and developing the understanding to prevent overwhelm and burnout. The all-too-common alternative is hoping or waiting and then having to deal with its catastrophic consequences if left unchecked and unactioned.

Ian is a former Police Officer with Thames Valley Police and now an alternative thinking specialist.
We tend to simply interpret “people situations” as difficult. We respond to them tolerantly or intolerantly within our existing processes and thinking.
We use methods of understanding the limitations of human perspective to create an expansion of insight, developing solutions that exist outside of current thinking. All problems, and all solutions start with thinking. Your organisation will benefit from thinking expertise. We are thinking experts. Organisations frequently confuse the symptoms of ‘people challenges’ with causes. This perpetuates problems, minimises the chances of effective solutions and removes focus from core service delivery.
We teach you how to address the cause. Our language tends to suggest that situations create our problems. We often do not realise that it is the meaning we give to situations that makes them more difficult to overcome.
Our methods develop leaders who maximise engagement, promoting wellbeing and efficiency and who are skilled in supporting organisations to reach their potential.
As a Strengths Coach nothing excites me more than helping individuals and teams to understand and build on their natural talents to reach enduring success in all areas of their working life.Clifton Strengths empowers professionals to codify their unique strengths and areas of opportunity.This is an incredibly rewarding process as together we strive for true impact by unwaveringly pursuing clients’ objectives on their terms.By treating everyone as a singular and distinct individual, sustainable and long lasting change becomes the end goal of every conversation.
I have over 15 years of experience leading teams and helping aspiring leaders become the best version of themselves through amplifying their strengths and harnessing their personal passion.Having cut my teeth as a reconnaissance commander and an intelligence officer over three tours in Afghanistan with the British Army, I really began learning about leadership during several years at PwC.During this time I was parachuted into ailing financial services, engineering and utilities clients with teams of consultants to change behaviours, analyse problems and create the environment for success.
Having also worked as a safari guide across East Africa, an aide to a Member of Parliament in Westminster, a security specialist across Europe and as an advisor on Academy Award winning Hollywood productions, I have a broad range of experience that touches multiple industries.
A passionate Cornishman, I am implementing several rewilding programmes on Bodmin Moor and believe that true success can be achieved by combining the restorative and motivating effects of the natural environment with the high pressure, fast paced nature of corporate life.When not helping clients create harmony and profit in their business setting I will usually be found deep in ancient oak woodland with a labrador, helping the natural ecosystem to regenerate and self-sustain.
“I came out with two clear actions that I can use immediately upon my return to work, so I will quickly be able to use them and feel more empowered from day one. This is a great feeling. Overall our session has allowed me to feel more positive about my return to work.”
Head of HR, Financial Services Company
“Merlin immediately made me feel at ease and went through the report, making sure I understood what everything meant. He created a very relaxed environment that, without knowing it, allowed me to make realisations about the future. The best part however was ensuring there was an action plan. There’s no going back now!”
I’ve always been fascinated by what makes people tick, and why they behave the way they do. Now with my training, and understanding of neuroplasticity, I can help them mould their responses and behaviours to suit their own best good; literally change their brains.
I’ve lived among tribes-folk in the Zambezi Valley, farming and towns-folk in Zimbabwe, expat- and island-folk in the Seychelles, city-folk in London and country-folk in England and Ireland and what I’ve learned is that all behaviour is moulded by upbringing, culture, life circumstances, people’s individuality and (most importantly) their own unique understanding of their world.
After intensive training, in February 2013 I received my Diploma from the prestigious Quest Institute in London. I immediately began my new career helping individuals remove limitations and guiding them toward their own strengths and resources to reach their full potential. My training has continued unabated since then through reading, courses, workshops and seminars, ensuring that I keep abreast of all the trends and latest techniques.
My interest in connecting people with their strengths has been a useful tool in my previous careers: as a consulting agronomist for farmers in Zimbabwe, landscaping and garden design in the Seychelles, care-work in Britain, and now – best of all – as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Life Coach in Wiltshire. Throughout these careers I have also taught yoga, so my understanding of the autonomic nervous system is very sound. This is a huge asset in my work. I do regular charity work with refugees in Swindon.
The best thing about this therapy is that it can, and does, help everyone: businessmen and women, housewives, teenagers, sportspeople, parents, soldiers, the sad, the frustrated, the angry, the hurting, leaders, followers, loners…everyone.
Over the years several distant clients have worked successfully with me online, using Skype, Zoom, Facetime, and WhatsApp. This does not suit everyone so it’s important to chat online first and assess if this can be a comfortable platform to use for your therapy.
Siobhan has been close to the Eleos team since our beginnings and we are delighted she has joined us as our first associate cognitive hypnotherapist and life coach.
Talk through your concerns in a place of absolute confidentiality, empathy and acceptance. Let me help you find your way through to your goals.
“I was desperate because no help I was getting actually worked. I finally discovered Siobhan and Cognitive Hypnotherapy. She has changed my life completely.” Phil James
