About me

My name is 'Justin Stone' and my business is all about one thing only - helping people to live better lives. Being a professional life coach allows me to help people live the way they want which is pretty cool!

The first discovery session is FREE and lasts 60 minutes. In this session you can use this to decide if I am the right coach for you and I will also aim to give you that first feeling of moving towards something you want...

"I am not a egocentric, lets jump about screaming kinda coach, I am a calm, down to earth, fun but focused family man who works with clients from all walks of life".

During my varied life I have experienced many of the same feelings as my clients such as anxiety, love, despair, joy, anxiety, failure, frustration, fear, pride, uncertainty, trapped and excitement (yes a life coach is someone imperfect). However life has been kind to me because in my experience I have always been optimistic and in awe of what the world has to offer if you are focused, decent and hard working.


Asking for guidance is one of the biggest steps in taking action so you have already started the process of moving forward - so well done!

Further information

Life coaching and walking

I'm a huge fan of the outdoors because its totally uplifting for all the senses, so why not consider a coaching session whilst taking a walk in the park? We all know the wonderful  benefits of some gentle fitness! Firstly it produces endorphins which improves your wellbeing, then fitness helps blow away the cobwebs and builds our self-esteem. I also find that being outside enables me to think far more creatively. Medical studies have proven that patients who spent more time in the outdoors after surgery had quicker recovery times and needed less medication.

Client Feedback

"I first started speaking to Justin after hitting an all time low in my confidence whilst on holiday and preparing to come back to work. That crushing feeling of fear and emotion of walking back into a highly stressful results driven environment simply couldn't go on any more.
From the beginning Justin had a massively calming influence on me, I could tell he genuinely cared about my situation and saw it as his personal goal to bring out the best in me.
After only a few sessions of advice and looking into the core of my problems I felt the control coming back into my hands and not that of my demons.
Justin never rushed me to finish a meeting, was always available when I needed and put a firm cap on the number of sessions we needed so I fully trusted he was in no way trying to book sessions I didn't require.
I would recommend anybody to Justin and his service. He's transformed my outlook and balance in many aspects of my life not just my work environment. I now know how to cope when things are tough and how to convey this negative energy into my positive performance. As I go out on my own now I can't wait to see my performance return and share the secret of my success with my colleagues."

Justin has been a very supportive and understanding coach during the time I needed someone to step in and help me in making some changes in my life. His sessions are delivered with a sense of ease yet the relevant topics are touch based with precision. The follow up notes were a good recap of the sessions which further enabled me to re affirm the action points. I would highly recommend his services and would definitely work with him again.

Justin is naturally able to connect with, and get the best out of people so a perfect fit for coaching. Understanding the pressures of the Markets and the real world, Justin has been driving me to deliver tangible results, based short-term and future goals. Many people understand the principals and concepts of paying it forward, Justin is able to help define a framework into something that can focus a career path which allows you to align your personal life goals, of which I have been fortunate to experience. You can of course keep watching TED talks and reading Simon Sinek's books, but I would recommend getting ahead of the game with a fresh mind set through Justin.

How is Coaching Different from Counselling or Consulting?
Coaching though is more action-oriented and solution-oriented and focuses primarily on both the present and future. The "answers" that you are looking for come about through the work done in our joint coaching partnership or in your homework.
Coaching is not counselling or therapy which tends to focus on the past and look at issues historically nor is it consulting which generally involves coming up with expert opinions and answers. I do have in depth knowledge of financial services as an industry, so with your permission I can offer insight where appropriate. Finally, coaching does use techniques derived from clinical psychology.  
What is NLP – It is used for personal development and for success in business. NLP is the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce the results they do. NLP provides people with a methodology to model outstanding performances achieved by geniuses and leaders in their field.
A key element of NLP is that we form our unique internal mental maps of the world as a product of the way we filter and perceive information absorbed through our five senses from the world around us.
