Our aim is to share with you a fresh, insightful, at times provocative, revealing, neuro-inspired, magic-informed and entertaining approach to how we think.
We are a father-and-son team. We share with you the tools, techniques and tricks that magicians have been using for decades to engage, entertain and enlighten other people. The benefit of this approach creates a greater understanding of:
& Motor Skills
Leadership & Teamwork
Self-Esteem & Confidence
We use our one-day workshops, digital kits and creative services to share with you the tricks, tools and techniques magicians have used for the past 150 to engage, enlighten and enrich their audiences.
Everything we do at Mindsways is focused on giving you very practical ways of engaging people - including very senior teams, potential clients and family and friends. See what kind of things we can share with you by watching the video below!
Perfect For Beginners, Powerful for Professionals
What we do is suitable for anyone with any background who's interested in adding something special to Personal Development, Coaching, Training and Business!
Over the past 8 years, we have found ourselves at a strange and fascinating intersection between magic and applied psychology with business, coaching, personal development and therapeutic work. Magic, for us, has always been the perfect vehicle for illustrating how we think, improving our thinking and working towards people’s greater wellbeing.
Magic has the capacity to bring out personality and powerful human emotions, to express who we are in front of small groups or to audiences of thousands. It is about understanding and expressing what connects you to others. Learning to perform magic needs a blend of cognitive functionality, manual dexterity, confidence, clarity, direction, understanding of psychology, people management and theatricality.
We are father-and-son magicians, trainers and performers, George and Alex Rowley. Together, we make up Mindsways. We have been using the materials on this day to create and perform our own shows across the UK for the past 10 years.
George works with a blend of psychology, behavioural sciences and mentalism to entertain, improve people's lives, working towards greater innovation and creativity and increased business opportunities.
He has been studying human psychology for over 30 years, with many awards and degrees under his belt. In the early 1990's, he was faced with working with vulnerable young adults - this is where he found the power of magic to entertain people and enrich peoples' lives.
Alex is an actor, writer and experienced magician who specialses in using a blend of psychology, theatre, behavioural insights and mentalism to tell effective, engaging and empowering stories.
Alex has spent over half of his life learning magic, performing on stage and across the UK. He focuses his attention on spreading awareness of mental health issues and sharing powerful storytelling techniques.
Most importantly, we look at how you can apply these insights and ideas to all aspects of your life and work.
All of our services, whether the kits, our workshops, our consultancy and more, are woven together to draw on over three decades’ worth of personal experience, over a hundred and fifty years of psychology and magic ideas, and the pioneering neuroscientific research over the past decade.
We see these new ideas as a call to action to be open-minded, acquire a growth mindset and adapt an attitude of discovery. Engender this will to explore, go beyond your current ways of thinking, introduce a dash of daring into your engagement and let us share our moments of magic with you!

Life is very serious and sometimes unnecessarily so. This is where Mindsways' approach can reach the parts that others can't reach through magic and humour. Thank you very much.
