About Me, Lesley Lyle


This website is a portal to some of the things I do. You may have arrived here by following a link from another website or you may have just searched for my name. Whatever the reason – WELCOME ! You will see that I have more one area of interest and I fulfill a number of different roles and jobs. I love travel, variety and meeting new people, learning, teaching, coaching, training, laughing and having fun.



I love what I do and I do what I love

There is a common thread to everything I’m interested in, and in everything I do, and that is, positive intention. Some years ago I attended a course designed to help people discover their ‘life’s purpose’. It required me to do a lot of self-reflection and participate in exercises designed to capture the things I felt passionate about. Eventually it was possible to condense this information into one sentence. It read –

“I want to inspire people to inspire themselves to make positive change

That sentence became and still is the driving force behind everything I do and have done since.


I have learned things from ‘the inside out’

I have spent many years studying and training to acquire the knowledge that I have, but it was the application of this knowledge on myself that taught me what I know. I now facilitate the environment and conditions to enable others to have a similar experience of experiential learning with in house and online training programmes.


I continue to learn, develop and grow

My own self-development is important to me and I am always keen to extend my knowledge, learn new skills and grow. As well as being a  coach to others I receive coaching from my own coach and I have a supervisor to guide me in my clinical work. Additionally, some of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned have come from the clients and delegates on the training courses and workshops where I’ve been the facilitator. I hope to never stop learning.



Qualifications on their own don’t really mean much in my opinion however, I have studied and gained qualifications in several specific areas. Although the subject matters were each taught as separate disciplines they tend to overlap in my work. For instance, whether I am working independently as a  Clinical Hypnotherapist, Positive Psychologist, Associate Lecturer or running free laughter sessions in my community I will be utilising the tools I learned from a number of different disciplines including NLP and CBT. This also applies in my personal life where I practice what I teach. 



Who I Am

Of course, I’m not just defined by the work I do.  On a more personal note, I am the mother of three grown up children and  proud grandmother of five grandchildren. I am fortunate to live in the wonderful beauty of the New Forest with my partner, Iain.and Molly the dog. 


Bucket List

I think everyone should have a bucket list. Mine is constantly being updated as I tick off previous ones. Visiting Bhutan remained on my list the longest until April 2017 when I was invited to spend 10 days there, which was amazing. It’s wonderful experience when your dreams are not just realised but reached and also exceed your expectations.

I believe learning new things is an essential element in a flourishing life. Recently I have learned to play the ukulele,
