The Full Story

About us

We have worked together for many years and through our work, research and 50+ years of collective experience, our philosophy has taken shape. Together we have designed and developed ‘The ChrisLin Method’ which is a simple and effective way of working creatively with clients.

We believe The ChrisLin Method has therapeutic value in enabling the exploration of the hidden, unconscious depths of a client’s inner world.


It can be used with any creative intervention including paints, crayons, nature walks, expressive art, collage, sand play ... to name a few.

We continue to spread our knowledge and encourage others to use creativity by sharing what we have developed with fellow practitioners through our workshops and training, and we are truly grateful that participants continue to affirm the value of this work and encourage us to do more.

I have been working as a personal coach, team consultant and executive development coach for over 35 years. I trained as a humanistic psychologist and counsellor in the early 1980′s and worked with youngsters who were not school attenders. There I found that asking them to draw and doodle about what was going on for them opened up a conversation that had not been possible before. My passion for creativity and the difference it can make to the coaching or counselling journey has been part of my practice ever since. Over the years I've attended many courses on Art Therapy, Sand Play and Creative Arts - working with multi media, clay, fabric, threads, images, pastels, paints and metaphor - and I've successfully taken these skills into organisations and teams as well as working with them with individuals. I have also developed skills as an NLP Trainer, Hypnotherapist and Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling Practitioner and I am also an individual and group coach Supervisor.


I bring a background in understanding the deep structure of what is happening for people and I work to raise awareness to what is happening at the unconscious level.

After a fortuitous turn in my career, I found my real calling and moved from a career in the Technology sector to qualifying as an NLP practitioner and become CIPD qualified. Since then I have trained in many models and approaches including Clean Language, Transactional Analysis, CBT, Motivational Interviewing and other concepts from greats like Nancy Kline, Byron Katie and Kristin Neff,  but still I felt something was missing.


Creativity filled that gap and I have come to believes it provides a unique way for clients to look deeply at their issues and find new insights and new, and more helpful ways of ‘being’.


I work as an Executive coach with corporate clients and work with neuro-typical and neurodiverse private clients who are at significant crossroads in their lives. My approach is to help clients find clarity, focus and momentum using any tools or models that I think will best serve my client, but creativity is at the cornerstone of all I do. I have never found age or seniority a barrier for creativity. Everyone can pick up a pencil. And that’s all it takes!
