About Scottish Centre of NLP

Steven Burns

Steven Burns, creator of ‘The People's Coach' is a professional therapist, hypnotherapist, Coach & Director of one of the leading NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) training & Coaching companies in Scotland, Solutions in Mind.

Steven has trained and coached hundreds of individuals helping them overcome challenges and get more of what they want from life and, back in 2005 at the age of 28 when he put on his first NLP Practitioner course, was one of the youngest ever to deliver NLP trainings in Scotland. He now has over 13 years experience in the field and draws from many different sources to create a dynamic and long lasting learning experience.

Steven has spoken at the Yes group Scotland, Stirling University, CIPD Branch Fife, the institute of fund raisers, Clydesdale Bank, Business Gateway network meetings and has been a guest on UCA Radio Station and 3GFM. Steven is passionate about helping people achieve more of what they want out of life and has spent the last three years of his life researching social anxiety, shyness, social anthropology and social confidence.

As well as his NLP training courses and coaching clients, Steven’s speciality is in helping people let go of social anxiety and shyness to become more socially confident through a unique blend of one to one coaching, social skills training and social experience.


Brian Costello

Brian started his NLP training and experience while working for one of UK's biggest Wealth Management companies - a firm staging ground for practising many of the techniques both in a personal and business context.

In 2007, he started HeadStrong; his own company dedicated to creating a useable brand of NLP intervention that was both beautifully simple and easily accessible.

Brian's dedication to NLP helped him build HeadStrong almost completely on word of mouth. His ability to spot the right intervention at the right time and explain NLP in a way that makes total sense has helped him become one of Scotland's most respected NLPers. He is also a specialist in utilising NLP to deal with depression and anxiety issues.

HeadStrong's immensely popular weekend workshops such as The BreakThrough Weekend have been delivered as far a field as the Channel Islands and continue to pack out venues whenever they are held. As he was trained by co-creator of NLP John Grinder, along with Carmen Bostic St Clair and Michael Carroll, he also brings a fantastic knowledge of one of the newest branches of NLP - New Code NLP - learned from John Grinder himself to each and every training, allowing the delegates an insight into this incredible branch of the NLP spectrum.
