Welcome to a world of self-help, fear, and cults.
A Very British Cult, out on @bbciplayer now: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m001krb2/a-very-british-cult
In early 2019 Jeffrey Leigh-Jones from Portsmouth got a life coach. Someone to mentor him in life and help him realise his business ambitions.
Two years later, Jeff had sold his house, his relationship was in pieces, and he had handed over tens of thousands of pounds. And he wasn’t the only one. In this eighteen-month investigation for the BBC, journalist Catrin Nye and her team expose control, intimidation and fear at a mysterious life coaching company taking over people’s lives and ripping families apart.
As the investigation hots up, the group fights back, and there’s a surreal final showdown.
