"Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom" (Aristotle, 2,300 BCE)
Through my coaching practice The Authentic Life Company I'll help you get to know yourself as the first step towards creating meaningful change, success and wellbeing.
I provide the following services tailored to your personal life, work or business:
AUTHENTIC LIFE: Private coaching and personal development for clients who are committed and motived to creating change.
AUTHENTIC LEADERSHIP: Executive coaching for business leaders and entrepreneurs who want to lead from a place of congruence, honesty and integrity.
An expert in self-awareness, personal development, mindfulness and wellbeing, I'll help you understand yourself, the direction you want to take and how to get there.
- Is your life out of balance?
- Do you feel stuck?
- What is the dream that won't let go of you?
- What is the difference you want to make in the world?
- Would it be OK if you never became the person you really are?
Instead of sleepwalking into a default future, we will work together to create a future you really want by understanding who you really are, what's really important to you and how you really want to live as you take a transformational journey to your authentic self.
As your professionally trained thinking partner I will help you to:
- Understand who you really are
- Create meaningful change and success
- Develop and grow as a person
- Achieve what you're truly capable of achieving
- Live and work with greater wisdom
More benefits clients gain from my coaching programmes are:
- CONTENTMENT - know who you are and what makes you truly happy
- CLARITY - on decisions and direction because they are based on the true you
- COURAGE - make changes and work towards your future with purpose and passion
- CONFIDENCE - leverage your natural strengths by being self-aware and true to yourself
Truly effective coaching involves an investment of time and effort. I understand that it can be daunting to face change so I work closely with clients to provide personal and professional support throughout the coaching engagement.

As my client you'll pay for a fully supported professional coaching and personal development service. There's no quick-fix with coaching which requires significant time and effort in addition to the financial investment. I typically work with clients for between three months to one year.
The initial assessment is free of charge. During this meeting (approximately 45 minutes) we talk about your current situation, what you want to achieve and find out whether we're a good fit for each other. My ideal client will inspire us both with a big goal and the motivation to achieve it.
Please private message me for more information.
My dream is to see human beings fall in love with themselves and the Earth again. If I can contribute to this in any way then I'll have led a good life. This is my big 'why'.
I'm interested in the latest thinking on wisdom, wellbeing, people and planet. I regularly attend conferences and events with thought leaders and independent thinkers. I'm passionate about the environment, sustainability, ethics and ancient wisdom.
