Hi I’m Pip, founder of Edge NLP. After completing my NLP training with the ABNLP in 2008, I started Edge in 2009. My introduction to the world of NLP started a few years earlier when I was working within the corporate arena. I had the opportunity to do my Practitioner course so I took it. My initial motivation was purely business. I wanted to know how NLP could help me manage my team more effectively within the sales environment I was in. I quickly realised that this ‘NLP stuff’ was going to be something much bigger and it soon grew into a journey of self-discovery and growth that was set to change my life completely.
I am a Certified Trainer of NLP and Master Practitioner of Time Line Therapy & Hypnosis. I believe that my vast experience in the business world as well as my genuine passion for people, creates a training space that nurtures and supports the delegates we work with. This is underpinned with a deep rooted ability to just ‘know’ and to ‘get it’.
My aim is to enable you to feel empowered, inspired and excited about your future, recognising your true worth. When the mind is opened, the rewards are endless.
Some of the phrases people use to describe Pip are:
‘Authentic, humorous, expertise’‘Uncanny knack of teasing out the best in me’‘Approachable, patient, friendly, and mad’
Hi I’m Jools. So I began my career in Acting after leaving drama school to pursue my dreams of becoming a successful actor. I was fortunate enough to work in TV, Film and Theatre both in the UK and Australia. I also gained my Licentiate in Speech and Drama from GSMD as my Mum suggested something to ‘fall back on’ might be a good idea. I’m forever grateful for her advice as I decided to leave the insecurity of the acting world to have children.
My journey with NLP began a little later than Pip’s. In 2012 I attended the Anthony Robbins Unleash the Power Within workshop. Corny as it might sound, I suddenly realised what my true purpose was. I went onto complete my NLP Practitioner Course and I was hooked. Fast forward a few years, and I am immensely proud to be a Master Coach co-delivering all of Edge’s courses alongside Pip Leaver.
After completing her NLP Practitioner Course, Jools was hooked and is proud to be a Master Coach co-delivering all of Edge’s courses alongside Pip Thomas.
Jools is a Leadership Coach and Voice Coach working with an array of clients at a variety of levels, from small business owners, senior management and CEO’s.
Jools loves to learn and also likes to have a challenge to focus on. In 2017 Jools decided to become a student again and completed a three month intense 200Hr Yoga Teacher Training course. She now adds Yoga Teacher to her CV. That and Reiki Master, having gained her Master status in 2018. 2019 sees Jools complete her biggest challenge to date- a Marathon (gulp).
Her real passion lies in her ability to identify how individuals can be even more effective when it comes to delivering their messages with gravitas and impact. Through finding their voice and empowering them to communicate with confidence and presence, Jools’ clients are therefore able to be the most authentic version of themselves.

Director of Morale and Chief Office of Happiness
Meet Sid and Stan, our labradoodles. Their roles are incredibly important here at Edge HQ. There are times that they help boost the energy levels, give love or generally be that quiet presence of understanding. If Sid and Stan were to describe themselves I’m sure they would say:
Handsome – you will frequently hear his Mum’s calling him ‘handsome boy’
And at times a little naughty ( part of his breed apparently).
