  • Liz Bell

    Media Performance and Life Coach

    In 2010 while listening to an all too familiar story from a colleague, Liz realised more and more of the people around her were consistently burnt out and stressed.  This led to a swerve away from her career path and started a 5-year quest in retraining. 

    First, she studied Psychology and became something of an expert in Body Language.  In 2012 she achieved Licensed NLP Practitioner status, certified by Dr Richard Bandler and finally, went on to gain additional certifications in Hypnotherapy and Transformative Life Coaching. Liz is proud to be one of a handful mentored by the world-renowned life coach, Ali Campbell whose Transformative Life coaching style she says has been a revelation to learn.

    Liz is the co-developer of the EqUa Approach® and last year she launched her first book "Who Am I - Tales for those who feel lost". She is in charge of The EqUa Approach® Find your balance online coaching program which will be launched later on in the year.

  • Jo Hodges

    Author, Performance and Lifecoach

    Jo began her career some 20-years ago after gaining a BA Hons in Performance and Media.  It began with an audacious stint as a stand-up comedian and went on to include roles such as producer, director and camerawoman. After many years of experience and many stories to tell, Jo retrained and became a Licensed Practitioner in NLP, certified by NLP founder Dr Richard Bandler. She gained additional certification in Hypnotherapy, Transformative Life Coaching and Mindfulness and is proud to be one of a handful mentored by the world-renowned life coach, Ali Campbell. She is the co-author of the EqUa Approach® and is developing the performance and acting strand of our online coaching courses plus writing her own series of children’s coaching books.
  • Thea Hutchings

    Writer and Editor

    Thea's childhood was bohemian and her work has been varied.  But at her core, she's a problem solver, researcher and prolific list maker.  She also writes the blogs for both Balance Books and EqUa Coaching and was excited and yet terrified to be asked to edit "Who Am I?" by Liz Bell. A first for them both.
