Train Your Mind
Our 'Train Your Mind' tracks use established psychological techniques to help you develop qualities and characteristics associated with effective leaders and happier people.
We all have a vast potential within us.
And if you want to be a bit more scientific…
Without awareness and training, our mind will react the way evolution and our social circumstances shaped it to. In order to develop, improve and to be the best version of ourselves, it is possible to use our evolved brain, with all its glitches, to help us cultivate and enhance desired qualities.
“Access to nature both physical and through film footage and imagery can help people manage the stress of modern living.
It has multiple positive effects including:
Enhanced attention, focus and cognitive performance

A Bit About Us
Your Virtual Mind Trainer has been developed by a small team of enthusiastic and experienced professionals with successful careers in human resources, clinical psychology and IT. Together, Hilary McLellan, Dr Ashleigh McLellan and Karl Bolland, have a shared passion for helping people feel happier, relaxed and ready to achieve their personal goals.
Hilary is an Organisational Behaviourist, Executive and Team Coach. She worked as a Senior HR professional in the public and private sectors before re-training. She now specialises in Emotional Intelligence, Resilience and Compassion-focused coaching and works with a variety of corporate clients.
She believes that everyone should be able to find, and be, their best self at work. “We spend too much time at work to not be healthy, motivated and fulfilled the majority of the time.”
Ashleigh is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with 20 years’ experience in the NHS. She is trained in a broad range of psychological models and specialises in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT).
Ashleigh enjoys bringing this Compassion focus to a wide range of individuals and the system that they are in, be it their workplace, their family, or the cultural context. “I am passionate about helping people to have an authentic understanding of themselves, their brains and their bodies so that they can cultivate a greater sense of well-being and begin to truly flourish.”
Karl has worked his whole career in IT and has created both simple and complex solutions using different technologies in the education and business sectors.
He believes that technology should always be used to bring a benefit to its end users. “Technology can often be used 'just because' but often it can invariably end up making people’s lives more complex than they were before!”
Karl always aims to create solutions that provide a benefit in whatever field they are used.
