Reconnect to Innate Health
A 6-week online programme to support you in reconnecting to your inbuilt well being
Are you struggling with overwhelm, burnout and feelings of not being enough? Are you sleeping poorly, with a feeling like you’re fighting life all the time? Are you tired of letting stress, worry and anxiety run your life?
What if instead you could feel clear-headed, confident and contented on a daily basis, regardless of what’s going on in your life, whether that’s at work or at home? What if you could effortlessly switch off from the day’s stresses without playing it all out in your head, or resorting to opening the fridge? What if you knew, beyond any doubt, that you could bring your most resourceful, creative self to each and every situation you face?
Over the last two years I have helped more than 150 people with problems just like these to turn their lives around completely and find long-lasting peace of mind and fulfilment, on my 6-week Programme: “Reconnect to Innate Resilience”.
Until now, this course has only ever been delivered privately to large Health & Social Care organisations. And the results have been so life-changing for these groups (well beyond what I could ever have hoped for, when I started), that now I've decided to offer it to the public for the very first time.
I'm looking for 20 people to join me for 6 weeks starting Wednesday June 7th as a first-time public beta of this Programme.
“This exceeded my expectations - my anxiety has decreased and I'm more settled. I feel a lot lighter and life feels easier to manage. I would highly recommended to others!”
“Giles helped me see my situation in ways I hadn't imagined or ever thought possible. He has a charming & disarming bedside manner that put me at my ease from the beginning.”
“The results I’ve achieved have reawakened my optimism and eagerness to take on more. It’s totally liberating! I genuinely feel more relaxed and confident about the future.”
How My Approach Compares
This unique approach was recently found to be the #1 most effective way of improving the lives of ordinary people, by an independent UK advisory body (the What Works Centre for Wellbeing). Out of more than 200 different interventions examined across the whole of the UK, the six week ‘Reconnect’ course demonstrated the greatest improvement in wellbeing of ALL of them, as measured on a validated, internationally recognised scale (WEMWBS short form pre- and post-programme measurements).
“I am happier, both at work and at home. I’m more relaxed now, and have learned not to overthink things 99% of the time. I no longer worry about returning to work after being on annual leave – this would have kept me up all night, before.”
“It has made me see the bigger picture and how it is important to remember that I don't have to go with my default reaction, it is good to stop and think and choose a different reaction not based on worrying what other people think of me – it’s about giving myself permission to be me, not how I’ve been conditioned to be.”
“Work has been mad recently, but I know I’ve got the capability to cope with these situations. I’m not panicking, or getting frustrated and angry at things I cannot control. I’ve got a clear head. I’m sleeping better. I feel calmer and colleagues have noticed this. Thanks very much!”
This 6-week group coaching programme consists of 6 weekly, 90-minute interactive teaching sessions (with an optional 30 mins after, for questions) covering four modules. We'll kick off with the first session on Wednesday June 7th (7.30pm UK time).
You'll have access to a Professional Membership Site (not on Social Media) for session replays and a whole library of additional relevant materials for you to deepen your understanding, in your own time, that will grow as the course progresses.

“I am more present, I spend much less time thinking about the future, imagining worst case scenarios and preparing for difficult conversations. I am sleeping better. I feel that the fog has lifted and I am living in the sunshine!”
“I have felt more resilient when challenges have arisen. I used to scare myself with the thought, ‘I am going to be overwhelmed’ and that would make me turn away from difficulties. I no longer believe that thought, so am able to face challenges and deal with them more calmly and effectively. I have noticed myself being less reactive, taking time to allow solutions to come to me, and as a result acting more wisely.”
“I mostly wanted to understand my work fears and learn how to manage them, and as the weeks went by, the course began to do what was intended. Both at home and in work my relationships have improved. I now don’t take things as seriously as I used to.”
Programme Start (Session 1): 7th June 2023
Day/Time: Weekly 90-minute calls at 7:30pm UK on Wednesdays, with an optional additional 30 minutes of Q/A Coaching to 9.30pm

Investment: £350 + VAT – As this is a beta launch of the public version of this Programme, the investment is significantly reduced in exchange for your feedback and testimonials at the end of the Programme. The content I will deliver is tried and tested and gets massive results, however based on YOUR experience of this beta Programme and the feedback you give me, I may adjust how I deliver it to the public before offering it at full price in the future.
“I realised that insecurity and fear drives so many behaviours I see in the workplace – that’s given me such a different understanding of what’s motivating people; understanding where people are coming from. In the past I would assume it was something I said or did, but I’m realising what they’re thinking and what they do has very little to do with me. That’s really helped me to step back – I don’t overthink or worry about it any more.”
“If I were to describe where I was before the course… I was increasingly experiencing anxiety and the fight or flight response. I was over-analysing to the stage of it being really destructive to my own physical health; my bloods showing problems with cortisol levels and stuff. Things were unraveling! I’m so thankful Giles for the timing and the content of what we’ve gone through. I’m still thinking a lot but I’m not anxious in that thinking any more. I’m much more relaxed. I’m present and more myself. I’m more productive. I’m healthier. Big thumbs up!!”
“I assumed this was resilience training to support our employer’s agenda of having more productive employees, but saw this was irrelevant – it was a calm, reflective experience and has contributed to my overall wellbeing and sense of self. It’s not groundbreaking in its content, but somehow the overall outcome is.”

Sound too good to be true?
I hear you! Honestly… before starting this work, I'd have been hugely skeptical (and probably have thought all the testimonials were made up, ha ha – they're not)! This is completely understandable and a very common starting place for this kind of course. It's so different from the mainstream stuff out there, it would be a bit weird if you (i.e. your mind) didn't have reservations!
It’s ok, all will be revealed during the six weeks of the course. Have a read through these real life responses from people who didn’t know what to expect before they began, either… (names have been removed for privacy, but these all came from Health & Social Care workers, at the end of the 6 week programme).
If any of these experiences resonate with you - book your place NOW!
“I no longer feel the need to be in control all the time, and am far less reactive to experiences. I’m less concerned about how others perceive me and no longer try to meet what I imagine are others’ expectations of me - it’s very empowering.”
“I listen to my inner voice far less and am more positive. I used to overthink things – a lot!! – I’m now more able to let things just be. I’m calm most of the time. I’m also sleeping better!”
“I thought the positive results others had seen from the course would not happen for me. I now know that I am not who my thoughts say I am. I don’t try and shoo them out, manage or organise them… they just come and go. It enhances your quality of life and decreases stress and anxiety. Bloody awesome!”
“It makes a difference that is deeper and more profound than just taking in knowledge. It builds a resilient workforce who don’t need to go on sick-leave, and who can respond to the pressures on Social Services. A genuine huge thank you to Giles!”
“I’m back in work now, where I’d been off because of anxiety. Looking back, I was so agitated, but something has happened and I’ve noticed changes in a lot of things. I’m happy, without realising it! I’ve learnt to slow down a bit and enjoy stuff again.”
“Last week I had the best sleep, 7 days a week, including Sunday evening. Not worried about what's going to happen next week. It's just not there. It's just gone. However life unfolds I can deal with it. I don't have to be worried and overthink it several days beforehand. It’s really, really great!”
“This course offers a completely new way of viewing stress and resilience. It offers the opportunity to gain insights which can make a profound difference to the way we view and deal with problems in our lives. The concepts shared are surprisingly simple and easy to remember. ”
“I suffer from debilitating panic attacks and since attending I’ve had less. I had one this week and it didn’t last 4 hours like it usually does. This time I let things go; I let it wash over. That’s a big improvement.”
“I wanted to stop blaming myself for everything. And about two weeks ago, somebody was unexpectedly abusive towards me. I know what would have happened before – I would have taken it really seriously and gone into my office and cried. But I just laughed it off! It was a strange moment, because I thought, ‘Oh, I didn’t know I could do that! I didn’t know I could get over things that quickly.’”
“I realised I had lots of overthinking stopping me. So I've done lots of things I wouldn't normally do. I’ve managed to go on holiday, and fly! I went swimming and normally I’d be freaking out, but for the first time in a long time, I enjoyed it. I don't know what it is, but it really clicked to stop the overthinking. Learning to move on and let go but also be more present in the moment.”
“It works well in arguments - bypass the rubbish and move to ‘get over it.’ If I’ve had a dispute with my partner, I just say, ‘Should we forget the dispute part?’ Because in the end it’s not going to change anything. We’re going to make up, because we love each other. Let’s just skip the ‘dispute’ part and move on to the ‘love each other’ part.”
“Before, when I felt anxious, I would think, ‘Why do I feel anxious? I shouldn’t feel anxious! What is my body telling me to change in the situation?’ Whereas now, I see it’s just transient: feelings… thoughts… they come and go. I don’t pay it too much attention, which I find helpful. We are all limitless power, love, wisdom, which we’ve lost sight of, because thought gets in the way.”
“I used to be more of a worrier. I’d think about everything I said in the day, over and over again and play everything back. Whereas now, I’m a lot more relaxed. It’s really hard to explain. I guess I realised that it doesn’t matter. I can stress, but it’s not actually going to resolve anything! The overall results are the same. The only difference is the stressing out bit is going to make me feel like rubbish! ”
“I don’t have the dreaded thoughts I was waking up with. It’s changed. My mind is quieter. I’m more present. I still get thoughts, but I’m relaxed about it now. It’s all calm in there. It’s a bit of a miracle. Thank you Giles!”
“I’ve noticed I don’t keep on thinking about stuff. I’d spend days—or weeks!—being very analytical. But I realised you only ever need to think about it once, and then that’s done. I noticed I take the same action anyway, whether I spend 20 seconds or 40 hours thinking about it!”
“Before the course I found it impossible to stop worrying about everything. Now I have learned that all my stress and worry come from thought – I’m looking at things very differently and don’t stress as much. Once you see how things are, you can’t unsee it. It’s fantastic!”
“There are points in the day, for example driving—when people are cutting me up and that—your voice in my head is saying ‘Everyone is doing what makes sense to them’ so there is no point in me getting upset – they don't care! So I've noticed I'm much calmer driving now, which is one of the biggest things.”
“The problem where I was worried about the future before starting the course? That has subsided. I’m aware I’m not worrying about it as much. It’s still in the back of my mind but I think I’m just more relaxed, thinking about that. I’m less obsessed with figuring out the ‘why’ … just accepting it, rather than dwelling on it all the time.”
“I was on a downward spiral of anxiety and needed to take stock of the negative trajectory I was on. With the help of Giles and the course, things don’t have a handle on me any more; they don’t have to control me and rob me of my wellbeing. I’m calmer, more myself, more productive and more help to others. I have less anxiety and more peace. Thank you.”
“Everyone, somehow, magically, has been much nicer to me!! I suspect obviously it’s not them, it’s me, just being less negative and grumpy. I suspect what’s happening is I’m more cheerful and relaxed and people are responding to that in a more positive, and distinctly more pleasant, way.”
