"I felt at a loss as I had tried everything else possible. The patches, sprays, gum, inhalers, hypnotherapy, cold turkey, Champix and Zyban.
Over the last 15 years, I had attempted to quit so many times I had lost count and was depressed that each time followed the same pattern. I would always be continually thinking about smoking and unable to remove the desire for a cigarette. I travelled from someone who wanted a reprogramming of his brain to stop thinking about smoking, to a person who understands the long journey required to quit an addiction. This process was one of self-realisation,
I was guided by Brad to try new things and came to decisions around smoking by myself. We set targets and goals together and worked towards them. I feel so much more confident about understanding addiction and empowered to make decisions that benefit me. I believed in myself more due to the steady progression that Brad and I aimed for and achieved. Should you be considering working with Brad Go for it. You've made the first step in recognising a trait that you would like to change. Brad can guide you through it."

"Brad had a great way of using his NLP skills to help me feel at ease and relaxed in his company, enough to open up about the root causes of behavioural patterns I had that were getting in the way of my progress in life. He also used some great practical techniques to enable me to realise my true goals that I will benefit from focusing on. I would highly recommend Brad to anyone looking to move on from feeling a little stuck or lacking in direction as his approach is fast acting, professional and effective."
Nadine Robson | Lead Trainer at Ministry of Entrepreneurship Foundation
"I have had the pleasure of working with Bradley on the MOE Foundation Coach Training, where he volunteers his time to facilitate the learning of trainee coaches. He brings a positive, proactive and engaging energy, offering guidance and support to learners. Bradley takes the time to get to know all participants individually and quickly builds rapport through his genuine and warm interactions. Bradley is a talented and dedicated individual who puts the needs of the individual learners at the forefront of his training, without detracting from the aims of the sessions. I have been impressed with his level of professionalism and knowledge, sharing his expertise of coaching to support learners to further their understanding. I would certainly recommend Bradley in any facilitating/training capacity."
Beth Munby | Senior Marketing Project Manager
"I was privileged to be coached and trained by Brad as part of my MOE Coaching Certification, a 6-week coaching course taking place over February-March 2017.
From a coaching perspective, Brad gave me the safe space to think and share my ideas and thoughts. I felt engaged by him and listened to and we built a rapport straight away. I challenged him with complex ideas which he was able to help me understand and unravel to make my goal clear and come up with achievable actions. Brad also coached outside of the course on issues relating to anxiety and insomnia. Brad helped me to approach such issues from a different angle and provided me with some tools to cope and alleviate the problem. It's safe to say I was sleeping better after just one session.
From a training perspective, Brad was hands-on and taught me key skills in how to coach effectively, with energy and intuition. Brad was assigned to me for my assessment preparation and helped increase my self-confidence in my ability to coach successfully. Brad would always go the extra mile and to him, I am thankful for my achievement and will continue to use and develop what I learned under his training.
Brad is an effective communicator, fantastic listener and skilled in coaching; an NLP specialist I would highly recommend."
Alex | Barista
"A negative view on life, myself and what I was capable of. I was drinking too much and was too frightened and reticent to do anything about this. I had no real career aspirations and was suffering as a result of shutting out the world and alienating those around me. I found it almost impossible to handle any sort of pressure or responsibility due to very low confidence and self-esteem.
The process involved trying to pinpoint how, when and why things had gone wrong in my life. Methods such as rage release, life-mapping, light hypnosis and the introduction of a variety of coping techniques made up the six sessions. Brad helped me set life-enhancing goals and tasks that have gradually raised said self-esteem, allowing me to begin breaking destructive cycles and make up for lost time. The practical and personal advice given on addiction were highly useful in assessing my relationship with alcohol.
The main difference for me has been a new sense of optimism, in that I do actually have a lot to give and the strength to succeed and make positive change. Evaluating elements of my past has led to a better understanding of my present, and which paths to take for a better future. With Brad's help, self-loathing has gradually given way to self-acceptance, and an increased level emotional awareness.
If you are genuinely willing to hold up a mirror to your life and improve it, then do it. Brad is a great listener and will do his utmost to guide you. However, you need to be serious about making things better for yourself through your own actions and attitude, otherwise, this sort of program won't work for you."
John Haddow | VP Sales at Oracle Communication
"Working with Bradley (Brad) over a number of months provided me with structure and space to think about the ‘big questions’ that I had been avoiding thinking about and also highlighted I needed to find more time for myself and to get off auto-pilot with my work/life balance – to live life more."
"Brad helped me with life problem-solving. Some problems I knew I had, some I did not or did not want to admit to having. Brad encouraged me to be more honest with myself. Prior to working with Brad, I had invested some time with The MOE Foundation developing my coaching skills and meeting like-minded individuals. Brad was one of the trainers on the MOE class and we agreed to work together. Being close to retirement age, I had a reasonably clear life-plan, however, some anxiety regarding ‘what next’ and if I was performing my current job well enough, should I retire and what would I do in retirement?
Brad and I had regular sessions over Skype which worked well, as I could fit into my work travel schedule. Brad provided me with honest and fair feedback during each session encouraging me to engage, think carefully about what next and how my general behaviour and life outlook might be impacting my partner, friends and colleagues. Brad was also very encouraging that I had recognised that I needed to modify some things in my lifestyle. The ‘light-switch’ moment came when I realised that I was on auto-pilot at work & home and was suffering from stress. We explored some mindfulness techniques and Brad recommended some additional reading. I continue to work on further developing my emotional intelligence & resilience.
I am now more self-aware of the need for a better work/life balance and think about how my behaviour impacts others, on a daily basis. I now regularly find time to walk 25-30 miles per week, which allows me more ‘thinking-time’. I now feel more relaxed, balanced and self-aware. I try harder to be a more ‘chilled-out’ and a better person in all external interactions. I am more honest with myself. The simple tip of reviewing at the end of each day all the interactions with people and if something could have been ‘better’ make an effort the next day to tell that person (in person or phone, text email), that the interaction could have been better– was pretty cool and worked. Also thanking people more often, at work and home makes me feel better. Brad is a good listener and brings his life-skills experience to the table. I found working with Brad challenging - he frequently took me out of my comfort-zone - but very rewarding and would recommend anyone who wants to seriously think about the ‘big questions’ or has some anxiety problems, to contact Brad."

"I know Brad personally and professionally. He has a strong grasp of personal development and human psychology. What has been particularly valuable for me has been his ability to deliver his insightful comments in a form that I am able to hear allowing me to make improvements to my thinking in both my personal and professional life."
Gary Nightingale | 51
"I got in touch with Brad having reached a point in my life where I literally could not go on one more day feeling the way I did. I'm 51 and I just felt that nothing I had ever done had ever really worked; there were always things in the way, and I couldn't work out what they were or stop them ruining everything – relationships, family, work, health. I was totally frustrated because I knew something was badly wrong, but I couldn't tell anyone what it was. I just felt like crap all the time and I didn't understand why or what to do about it. My relationship with my partner, who I love very much, was on the rocks.
In Brad's reply to my first message, he wrote: I hear you. That changed everything. My partner had heard me, but she couldn't help me change, no matter how much she wanted me to or I wanted to. I took the breakthrough programme with Brad, and it has now finished. Working with Brad was amazing, enlightening and powerful. It was also difficult and challenging. At times I hated his relentless attention to what was going on for me. But I came to see how essential that is – to take full responsibility for all my responses to life, to other people, to situations and circumstances. At each major hurdle I wanted to run and hide, but Brad encouraged me, with firm deliberation, to press through my painful and uncomfortable feelings and to come out the other side, with more self-awareness and more freedom.
It is not an exaggeration to say I feel liberated. I felt completely stuck. I had always believed that life is a spiritual journey of learning and discovery, but I had lost that sense of excitement and enthusiasm. I was up to my neck in my own crap and I couldn't see a way out. I was blaming everything and everyone for my situation and I was full of old resentments and self-pity. Working with Brad helped clear all that rubbish away and showed me a way forward into a brighter future.
Now I can set some real goals for my life, and I know that any obstacles in their way come from within me, and I know what to do about them when they arise. I understand myself a whole lot better. I feel strong and confident and in control of my own life. Some difficult situations have come up, around work and finances, and I have been able to meet them and deal with them and it has all worked out better than okay. That makes me feel really excited about the future. My relationship with my partner is better than ever. I have made a start on understanding and owning my emotions and communicating them clearly and honestly. I wanted to do that before I just didn't know how.
To anyone reading this, who feels the way I did before I started working with Brad, I would say – do it. Find the courage in yourself to face all the crap that's been holding you back for too long, and just do it. Right now, you can't imagine how you will feel at the end, so just trust that it's a whole lot better than where you are now. And it could save your life. The breakthrough programme has finished but I am still going to have regular one-off sessions with Brad. This isn't the end – it's just the beginning of a new stage in my journey of life. I couldn't have got here without the help and insight I got from this work. For that, I am deeply grateful."

Hi, I’m Bradley Tyack … Bradley is my “in trouble” name though so please feel free to call me Brad.

“Emotional Intelligence, commonly abbreviated as EI (or EQ), is best defined as our capacity to perceive, express, understand and manage our own emotions and the emotions of others in an effective and appropriate manner, both in the workplace and in our personal lives.”
A lot of the time I run into people who have a burning desire to grow and contribute but for whatever reason have not been able to break free and reach their full potential. In my experience, this type of unconscious sabotage is what prevents people from reaching their full successful self. What I do is help people find and unpack the barriers and cause of the unconscious sabotage, becoming more comfortable with themselves and step into their power!
- Drugs/Alcohol/Addiction, Shame and Patterns of Obsessive Thought
- Procrastination, Limiting Beliefs, No motivation, Low self-worth, Uncertainty and just plain fear
- Communication Problems, Social awkwardness, feeling like I don’t fit in and Isolation, Business Success and Failure
- Planned to be somewhere other than where I am in my life currently and just not there!
All of these could have been used at one stage to describe me or my state of being at any specific point in the timeline of my life so far, the list of presenting challenges extending ad infinitum, having experienced, dealt with and sometimes managing daily all of these symptoms by daring to figure out, confront, challenge and heal the root causes deep within myself has brought me to the point of being able to help add value to fellow sufferers of the human condition.
