Coach & Founder
Ray Beach, Certified Coach & NLP practitioner
I specialise in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by helping them unlock what is holding them back and empowering them and motivating them to create the change they wish to see. I want my clients to have fun and enjoy the process! I take great pride in seeing clients progress and make changes that significantly impact their life and wellbeing. Having worked with a careers coach myself, I have first hand experience of what it takes to shift perspective, adopt a new mindset and create significant change.
Ray is a Certified Personal Coach and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner (with neuroscience). She is concerned with the relationships we hold with ourselves, others and the wider world. Her coaching often takes an ontological approach; considering what it means to be human, with a focus on language, emotions and the body and an existential approach, exploring what it means to exist, be free, take control of our lives.
Her coaching empowers people in understanding their sense of self, what they want for their lives and in unlocking their true potential, challenging their mindsets and beliefs. In wellness coaching she works with clients to understand what health and wellness means for them as an individual, to understand any blockers they may have, and then works with them to help them achieve their goals.
With an understanding of neuroplasticity and the brain/body connection, she increasingly sees the importance of our mental state on our overall health and wellbeing. She believes a truly combined approach to health and wellness through the mental, physical, and spiritual is vital. As a result her direction of interest grows towards approaches and practices with similar philosophies. Her philosophy is balance, variety, integration and enjoyment. She is qualified in Mental Health First Aid via Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England.
Passionate about aesthetics, beauty and creativity, and having studied Philosophy of Art and German Aesthetics, Ray was also keen to see Drift & Design connect in to the Arts & Creative sector. Her professional career also spans over 15 years in events, relationship management and project management, through which she has worked on different creative sector projects working with and building a network of professionals within this world.

Drift & Design
What is drift and design?
To drift or design is an idea describing how you move through life. Neither is preferable, they are two separate ways of being. Often we are naturally drawn to one or the other.
Drift - When we drift, we move less consciously. Perhaps, we are actively deciding to take the pedal off and see where we end up.
Design - When we design, we are the architects of our lives,; making conscious decisions and taking deliberate action towards our goals.

"There will always be rocks in the road ahead of us.
They will be stumbling blocks or stepping stones; it all depends on how you use them"
