Viv Buckland

It's my pleasure to be the Managing Director of Coaching & Mentoring Services.  I have worked in senior leadership positions for many years and have observed the good, the bad and the mediocre.  Here at C&MS we believe that only great leadership is good enough and are delighted to work with those who want to step up and accept that challenge.

I was given some feedback, quite some years ago now, that when I really started focusing on coaching, my leadership impact grew significantly.  I'm passionate about coaching because the positive changes left in its wake support the delivery of transformational change.  When I later took a journey of learning through NLP, it provided a springboard for cultural change with significant benefits in both coaching and leadership. 

Whether at individual or organisational level helping people to be their very best makes every day a great day.

My work within a secure children’s home, past experience teaching young people in China, and working for a short time in Durban, has allowed me to observe and engage with the wide variety of personalities and cultures in the world. Here at C&MS we believe that challenges are simply goals we haven't achieved yet, and we are delighted to work with everyone who wants to step up to that challenge and face it head on. 


I’m passionate about supporting young people and colleagues work through difficult and challenging times, both within their professional roles as well as on a personal level.  I have seen the incredible impact communication has on people in so many different ways, and am keen to share with you the benefits of NLP whoever you work with.


I have seen the positive impacts of NLP, and felt the positive impacts on lives and I will continue to share my knowledge so everyone experiences their full potential, whatever that may be.  And so I am delighted to be the Marketing Director here at C&MS, and look forward to getting in touch with you.



Michelle, trainer


All my goals were achieved and then some. The programme is designed to a high confidence and relationships blossomed.  I loved it so much I signed up to the Master's level to continue my NLP learning.

Emma, HR professional

I absolutely loved the training and it has had a profoundly positive impact on my interactions with others. It has raised my self-awareness and I have been able to share the learning within the HR Service and wider through bitesize introduction sessions. I left the course wishing I could follow Viv around for a few weeks – she is amazing

Joel, senior social worker

Viv, is clearly a master of NLP and her values and communication style throughout the 7 days  really brought our group together quickly and facilitated a bonded and safe group and individual learning experiences. Thank you.
