              Profiles and Coaching


Charles Tipping from Infinity Profiling is our Life Coach and Behavioural Consultant.

Charles started out as a cartographer and engineer in the army, then went on to have a successful career in IT and international marketing. He transferred his skills into creating and training leadership and management programmes and being a corporate troubleshooter working with businesses from small independents to international groups.

He has amassed a wealth of experience working with individuals as a behavioural consultant and coach and is licensed in most of the profiling modalities including our own Infinity Profiling.

In 2012 Charles became interested in animal healing after attending the Red Horse Speaks Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) programme which draws on the ability of horses to mirror human behaviour.

He saw how we can connect with animals in very much the same way as we do with humans and can apply the same behavioural models to learn how they prefer to communicate.

He went on to train with Lisa Benn at the Healing Trust and is now our resident animal healer.
