Highly qualified Life Coach and Counsellor with 35 years experience working with clients face to face or online.

Methodology

My fundamental belief is that each of us is special, each of us unique; each of us can move beyond the constraints that our situation presents in order to create a life with meaning, purpose and personal fulfilment.
All my life I have valued the support and challenge others have offered me, even when at times it has been immensely painful; I strive to give this same support to my clients; walking a few steps with them; sometimes with 2 or 3 sessions, sometimes over a longer period. Each of is unique in our journey.

Experience

For over 35 years, I have been Coaching and Counselling young people and adults of diverse cultures and social backgrounds, individually, in couple counselling, in professional teams and group workshops . Many hundreds of people have given testimonials to my wisdom, empathy, insight, warmth and life experience.
I consider it important to keep up to date with my own ongoing training and personal development.
My academic and professional qualifications include a Masters degree (University of Strasbourg), a four year diploma in Psychosynthesis and Education (Psychosynthesis Trust, London), accreditation as a Life Coach (NCFL), 30 years as Enneagram trainer.

Dear Doctor Hillas, Thankyou so much for teaching me Maths. I could not have achieved anything near the A grade I did without your help. I thouroughly enjoyed the lessons which cannot be said for my Maths lessons at school so thankyou for putting up with me.

I have no hesitation in writing this reference for Thomas Hillas, who has tutored my son for the past 18 months in preparation for his GCSE's.
We found him reliable, conscientious and, most of all, my son trusted and liked him. He not only helped him with the subjects in which he was being tutored but gave him confidence and self belief. He has matured as a result of Mr Hillas' help.

Mr and Mrs Hill. Waterbeach, Cambridge

Thomas Hillas has been tutoring our 2 children, Rhys aged 11 and Lewys aged 9, for over 12 months. During this time our children's overall confidence and mathematical skills have improved. Last year Rhys achieved very good year 6 SA T results.
Thomas is patient in his approach and he makes the subject fun to learn. He has always been willing to provide support for their broader educational needs and has built a good relationship with them both.
