About Chimp Management

We are a unique company with a small number of specialist mentors all selected personally by our CEO, Professor Steve Peters. Everything we teach and facilitate is based on neuroscience and the findings of Steve’s many years of work into the functioning and management of the mind and his creation of the Chimp Paradox Model.

Through the developments in neuroscience and The Chimp Model, we help people to understand how the mind is structured and how it functions.  This allows individuals to gain insight into their own mind and acquire the skills to be able to be more effective and successful in getting the best of out of themselves, others and challenging situations.

Professor Steve Peters is the author of the best selling books, The Chimp Paradox, My Hidden Chimp & The Silent Guides.
