Personal Development Programmes for the Deaf community

The Butterfly Project delivers a specialist Personal Development service to the Deaf community in British Sign Language (‘BSL’) for the improvement of overall health and wellbeing.  Our service provides unparalleled support as well as a unique tool kit to understand how to transcend challenging conditions (mental and physical) and unwanted behaviours. It is a one-stop-shop for health and wellbeing.

Our services are structured to provide fast results making it economical and beneficial to both the individual and the service provider.

The Butterfly Project programs are bespoke, unique and specifically designed by MawdsLeigh to meet the cultural, linguistical and behavioural needs of the Deaf community. They are delivered by The Butterfly Project in BSL in one-to-one sessions or group workshops. It is not counselling, life coaching or goal setting.

The Butterfly Project is a Tier 1 preventative Mental Health Service and the programs we offer are the solution to Objective number 45 of the Health, Mental Health and Wellbeing Goal in the National Plan. Our service also aligns with the Scottish Government Mental Health Strategy 2016 where the objective is to:

 ‘provide a preventative approach; address mental health inequalities and develop a framework to transform mental health in Scotland.’ 

Our model we use is completely transformative and focuses on solutions and empowerment.

The Inner Hearing program works by getting to the root of the problem and transcending it through understanding and action. It is quick and effective. It is not mainstream; it is an alternative model created specifically for the Deaf community in BSL.  


The Mirror model allows you to explore your perception of any situation from a completely different perspective. The Mirror gives you access to see many things inside yourself you never knew existed and gives you the advantage to challenge the complexities of your mind.


If your life is your biggest project, why not design it? The question ‘Who are you’, is usually answered by everyone else. The best way to encounter You is through your own experience. This program is the beginning of a beautiful journey and an insight into ‘Who are you?’


Created to build inner strength; create balance; improve focus; increase productivity and relieve stress. Cultivate the body’s internal energy to improve health and release blockages within the mind and body

😊 This is Kellie and she wanted to share her experience of working with The Butterfly Project and how even though it is challenging looking at yourself and taking responsibility for your own decisions when you do it works and makes such a difference to your quality of life …. and when you don’t you just stay stuck exactly where you are! If you want to change something in your life that you are not happy with, your weight your job your relationship or anything else then book a package with me and I’ll show you how 🦋
😊 This is Kim and she wanted to share her experience of working with The Butterfly Project and how she, through her determination to get what is right for her as a Deaf person, secured funding from the NHS to get the right support that she needed and NOT what they wanted to give her! 
Well done Kim and thanks for sharing your experience! 

The funding is there if you want it enough 🦋
👋😊 Hello everyone I hope you are well... 🦋

This is just a quick Vlog and update to let you know that I have set up a new page on FaceBook and the website.  

The new page is The Butterfly Project - The Projection Model for Weight Loss and Wellbeing and this is a new service I have set up for hearing people as a result of being asked, repeatedly, over the years to do so! Many people who are related to Deaf people or work with and are involved with the community either on a personal or professional basis have approached me and asked to work with me and after a lot of thought I decided to go ahead.  
I now have completed another level of advanced training and have gained a licence and accreditation to work with anyone who requests the service - specifically in the domain of Weight Loss and Wellbeing.

TBP for the Deaf community remains the same and I am delighted to say continues to thrive with workshops and one to ones! 

Thanks for taking the time to read/watch this information - exciting times ahead and if anyone would like to book a session don't hesitate to be in touch.

Feel free to share this information to anyone you feel it would benefit  🦋
