About Lee

Lee Vallely's early life was marked by a challenging and tumultuous journey, born in the heart of Birmingham, England, amidst a backdrop of violence, racism, and volatility. Fearing judgment, Lee concealed his ethnic background for the better part of his childhood, only finding the courage to speak about it in his late twenties.

This challenging upbringing sowed seeds of limiting beliefs, making him feel like an imposter, unworthy, and disconnected. He was often perceived as aloof, even prompting suspicions of autism due to his reticence. However, this adversity ignited an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, particularly in the realms of positive psychology and mindset transformation.

Lee transformed into an avid bookworm, devouring over a thousand non-fiction books, a dedicated seminar enthusiast, and an insatiable seeker of understanding the intricacies of the human mind. Today, he embodies the very principles he teaches, empowering others to live their best lives. Lee Vallely holds certifications as a Certified Health Coach, Recovery Coach, Recovery Coach Trainer, and a certified hypnosis and NLP Trainer, bringing a wealth of expertise as a seasoned Health Coach, transformational speaker, and coach.

His journey led him to work as a personal trainer and, later, as a mental fitness coach for young athletes at Wimbledon, where he nurtured their unshakeable confidence on and off the court. Lee's commitment to personal growth led him to study under the legendary Tony Robbins, completing Mastery University and Leadership programs. In 2007, he became a leader and facilitator for Robbins, a testament to his dedication.

Lee Vallely is also a licensed facilitator for Bob Proctor, the iconic narrator of "The Secret," and his transformative Thinking Into Results Training program. Direct training from NLP co-founder Richard Bandler and renowned hypnotist Paul McKenna further enriched Lee's skill set.

Passionately dedicated to helping individuals cultivate the mindset and energy required to conquer obstacles and manifest their goals, Lee Vallely inspires them to create futures so compelling they can't help but greet each morning with unbridled enthusiasm. His journey is a testament to the transformative power of resilience, personal growth, and unwavering determination.

I initially approached Andrea to work with my 15-year-old daughter who is struggling with severe depression and anxiety. After only one meeting with my daughter, Andrea gave me an insight that was life-altering. We then switched gears, instead focusing on my perception of my daughter’s illness/ wellness, and on my ability to be whole regardless of where she was in her journey. This realization has allowed me to find peace within myself and in our home. I am eternally grateful to Andrea for lighting the way for me in my own personal journey.”

Lee Vallely is amazing! His coaching is far better than any other, and I’ve been to gratitude training, various forms of hypnosis and NLP and other coaches in my life. My goal was to get into a loving relationship and it was not always an easy journey. But Lee was encouraging and persevered and held me accountable for my goals and actions. Within six months I met the love of my life, and we got engaged! I highly recommend him to anyone that needs to change their life!
