Dave Weller

Dave is a colourful character who can lift any room with his energy. He was an engineer for twenty-three years before successfully mastering Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and various other intervention models.
Since then, Dave developed NLP to include the Weller-Method, Behavioural Re-Patterning and Relationship Dynamics models to teach his clients how to understand themselves and the thought processes that govern their limiting actions.

More about Dave...

Having suffered adversities of his own and sought solutions, Dave concluded that conventional methods didn't work for him, and his background in engineering helped him to discover NLP - a model which offers understanding of the human experience and the potential to redesign it for the desired outcomes.

Dave's journey produced an insatiable appetite for learning more about personal transformation, and in turn, has resulted in the creation of various approaches for helping people to uncover and resolve what has been stopping them all along. He lives the philosophy that anyone can change anything they want to, given the right conditions - and employs the above models to create the conditions for that change to happen naturally.

Specifically, Dave can help you achieve resilience in the face of the ups and downs of life by guiding you out of negative experiences and towards clarity, energy, direction and purpose.

Working With Dave
Dave has quite an unconventional approach to working with clients, which is best described as firm humour – laughter is the key to breaking through the tough stuff that gets in your way.

He gains rapport easily and quickly with people thanks to the depth of his professional experience - having accrued thousands of hours engaged in transformational work. He is a master at putting people at ease because his realness is palpable.

Tracy says

My big wake-up call came after a traumatic birth experience in 2007. When we experience trauma as an adult, we witness the impact it has on our bodies, minds and lives immediately. When I turned to face the trauma, I was terrified, but I found the professionals and friends I needed to support me to be able to heal this. Over many years, I worked beyond the birth trauma to heal all the stored trauma in my body that was created throughout my life. Trauma can seem overwhelming because it causes the experience of overwhelm in our bodies. I used to describe it as a kind of vortex. But I have learned that healing it is actually very straight forward - we simply need to be able to feel the emotions that have never been processed. This is uncomfortable, but with the right support it is entirely possible. I love helping others to connect to the inner resources they need to be able to do this.

Make no mistake, this work will change your life! It continues to change mine on a daily basis. Once we stop holding on to all the defence structures and beliefs that we created to keep us safe, once we find safety in our bodies right now, then we see the world in a new way. For me, one of the biggest changes has been moving away from a pattern of isolating and believing I need to do everything on my own (because I thought it was safer not to trust others), to reaching out and connecting with others every day. Break Free & Thrive offers me the community I need to keep growing with a balance of fierce truth and deep compassion. I look forward to working with you and supporting you on your journey to discover the truth of who you are.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming: Master Practitioner

Bronwen Mahoney

Bronwen Mahoney has a passion for guiding people out of their 'Stuck-ness'. The events, emotions and circumstances in a person's life, that prevents their growth or from moving on with a particular issue.

As an Associate, and being involved in NLP BFT and Metaphors of Movement, Bronwen knows the power of thinking, and how a new thought or different view point can bring around the option to have a different experience. 

More about Bron...

These skill sets mean that she can guide anyone to revealing the true nature of their stuck-ness, and how their managing and coping strategies can keep them stuck. How the blocks and barriers they have prevent them from moving forward, and how looking in a different direction, can reveal what's been overlooked in their options and choices. Most importantly, guiding them to knowing where they stand in life. We all need a solid understanding of our experience before we can take any steps to change our experience.

My Journey.

I first met Dave Weller, in 2014 when I was struggling with my own Mental Health. His approach was like nothing I had experienced, and I instantly resonated with it and understood how I was feeling my thinking. This was a game changer, and I became more aware of the amount of people around me that were also feeling their thinking. I wanted to share what helped me, with them. So when Dave suggested I attend his Beyond NLP course. I signed up, turned up and that's where my passion for language and how people communicate became ignited.  I picked up on the use of Metaphors in everyday language and how we are all using them to describe our experience. These 'Turn of Phrases' reveal so much about how we are experiencing our life. In fact, Metaphors and Metaphorical Language is how the Right 'imagistic' side of the brain, is trying to communicate to the Left 'logic' side of the brain; this also happens in dream state, and why some re-occurring dreams are trying to tell us something, again we just dismiss this information.

 So the brain is trying to give us full picture of our 'stuck-ness'. Its just that we tend to take no notice of these metaphors, and carry on trying to logically think our way out of the stuck-ness!

That's where 'the missing piece' is, in the Metaphors! … and after I completed a Metaphors of Movement course, I discovered just how I can help interpret the right side of the brain, to the left side, The end result is new information and new thinking. An understanding of what's really going on, where you stand and the options and choices available before you take steps.

When I combine this passion and skill set with the BFT work and the NLP, I can guide anyone to a new thought, or a full on lightbulb moment.  For me, hearing someone say 'I hadn't thought of it that way, that makes a difference' is what lights me up.  Seeing other's have the lightbulb moments, that I initially had with Dave's sessions, is what drives me to want to show others they too can change their thinking and their lives.
