About Christian McNeill

My route into coaching and training is a bit unusual. For over 30 years I was a lawyer: first an advocate and then a tribunal judge.

During my time as a lawyer, on and off I had my own struggles with addiction, overwhelm and stress – which is what propelled me into coaching in the first place. I’m trained in a number of schools of personal and spiritual development, including NLP and hypnotherapy. Yet until I discovered a very different basis of the Inside Out paradigm, I still often felt like a victim of circumstances. Times of feeling completely overwhelmed, and even burnt-out, occurred. The 3 Principles understanding radically altered that. The change at depth which occurred for me is what I now offer to share with others.

The results have been so transformational for me and for countless others, that I now work exclusively in this field. My practice is founded in the 3 Principles Paradigm. I am passionate about enabling others to experience the kind of change I have had. Here are the principal services I offer:

RESTORING YOUR MENTAL WELLBEING – An 8-session coaching package designed to help you understand how your mind actually works. You will uncover the powerful resources within. This enables even chronic problems that  have bothered you for a long time to dissolve. The programme has been designed to bring about permanent change by removing the causes of distress at source and having you gain insight into your essential resilience and power. 

Sessions can take place in person or via phone, Skype or Zoom.

Suitable for anyone. £495

1-1 INTENSIVE – Change Your Life in a Week. Whatever stage you are at in uncovering the 3 Principles Paradigm, this 4 day intensive is created to enable you to dive deeper. For a 4 day period I am at your service, to engage in relaxed yet transformative conversations, to hold a mirror up to some of your blind spots, to brainstorm, to answer and ask questions. Normally these take the form of a retreat in beautiful surroundings in the West of Scotland giving you a break everyday life. 

£1995 Excludes cost of accommodation.

IN-DEPTH MENTORING PACKAGE – If you want to become a teacher of the 3 Principles Paradigm this is a great resource. It is a  3 month package of weekly 1-1 sessions, email support and online resources. I have mentored a number of teachers transitioning into the 3 Principles field. As the programme progresses you will have opportunities to co-facilitate. We will also create opportunities to further your own facilitation. Ideal for someone who wants to go deeper in their understanding of the Paradigm. A practical step towards becoming a facilitator. 


EXECUTIVE COACHING – Many people at senior levels, who are juggling the demands of a professional role with personal or family responsibilities, feel they have nowhere to turn. If you need a coach who has experience of performing a senior role, who understands the requirement for absolute discretion and who can deliver transformational change at the deepest level, I offer that unique combination. Hiring me enables you to have an experienced consultant on your team, who is independent of the organisation, yet wholly committed to your success and your wellbeing. 

The package includes 2-3 individual sessions together with unlimited telephone and email support.

£300 per month.

I can also create a bespoke package if that suits you better. Anyone who wants to learn more can contact me for a free Discovery session.

My philosophy: No matter what has occurred, each of us has an essence which is unbroken and unbreakable. We all have vast inner resources of wisdom, resilience and creativity which are often massively underestimated. My role is to help clients realise these untapped resources.

Most distress stems from misunderstanding how the mind really works. Through a series of conversations, with examples from a client’s own life and through the phenomenon of Insight, I enable people to understand how their experience is being generated and how they can realign themselves with the optimal operation of their mind. From there no problem is insoluble…
