A Northumberland start up business that provides mental health support for children has been nominated for two awards.

Mighty Minds Life Coaching for Kids, based at The Secret Garden in Seaton Delaval, is a mindset coaching service using neuro-linguistic programming to help children aged seven to 12 to combat social and emotional difficulties.

The company was started in 2023 by mindset coach Lauren Percy, and has now been nominated for the Rising Star Award and for the Consumer Services Start Up of the Year Award at this year’s North East, Yorkshire and the Humber Regional UK StartUp Awards.
