Need a new perspective? For businesses
Mindtrip works with business’ to help them find a new angle to solving their organisational and people development challenges. Our focus is to help both organisations and the individuals within it, successfully achieve their goals in an environment that builds on people’s strengths and enables people to feel fulfilled and flourish.
With the business day getting faster and faster, reduced management hierarchies and the average employee being expected to deliver more and more it becomes ever more challenging to create the vital space to take stock and reassess whether what we’re actually doing is getting us to where we want to be.
Need a new perspective? For local people in the Colchester area and Stour Valley

What is in a name?
When I started my business in 2004, I thought long and hard about what I wanted to call myself. Over the years I have reflected on the name and as I position myself for my next decade, I wanted to reaffirm what’s in a name…
When I did my coaching training way back in 2004, with the Centre for Coaching, I chose to specialise in cognitive behavioural coaching. Why? Because it had robust clinical evidence of helping people in a clinical environment with depression and anxiety and I felt the method of focusing on thoughts and how they ‘send us on mind trips’ would have a good crossover in the world of work. Little did I know then at how commonplace CBT and CBC and later mindfulness, has now become. The name mindtrip came out of recognising that our behaviour and emotions are driven by our minds (and vice versa) which send us on both positive and negative journeys or ‘trips’. By becoming more aware of these ‘mindtrips’ we can help to become aware of whether we are present or in fact on automatic pilot, refocus our intentions and attention for positive results.
