About me

"Scott was so easy to talk to, I felt he really listened and empowered me to take control and think about going for what you want and that I can achieve it. I CAN DO ANYTHING!. Thank you Scott! " - Youth Worker.

My passion is helping young people, adults and businesses to be their best and succeed.

Are you a parent, carer or youth professional?

You want your teen to be happy and successful but there are areas of their life they are struggling with? I help teens and young adults to create bright futures. To understand and appreciate their potential then take positive steps forward. I understand the scenario, you want to help the young person in your life but are finding that challenging as you are too close to them or they simply don't want to listen? That's when a coach can really make a difference. Someone independent, completely objective and non-judgemental who will support, champion and challenge them in a very supportive way.

Are you an adult who feels they may benefit from coaching?
Do any of these scenarios sound familiar for you? If so, I'd love to help you make positive changes in your life.

  • Work pressures are dictating your life – you’re up early, get home late and even then are constantly checking emails
  • Feel that you have neglected important relationships – your partner, children, other family and friends
  • Your diet isn’t as healthy as you would like and you’re doing very little exercise
  • You find you have very little time to enjoy leisure activities and hobbies
  • Home environment has been neglected, you are possibly just doing enough to get by day to day
  • You started your career with such energy, dedication and commitment but now energy levels are lower
  • Don’t know what the next steps are when it comes to changing your life

I am an award winning Life Coach, Youth Coach and High Performance Coach (for organisations and sports professionals) with over 15 years experience of coaching. I worked with a large corporate company for approximately 16 years before setting up my own coaching/consultancy business. My corporate experience and extensive coaching training have enabled me to coach a very diverse range of individuals and teams.

Outlined below are some of the more common areas of focus:

  • Increasing confidence and self-esteem
  • Negative v positive thinking
  • Stress management
  • Life transformation - making big shifts in your life including life-work balance
  • Career change and reigniting your passion for work
  • Time management
  • Workplace challenges
  • Leadership skills
  • Creating high performing teams
  • Common challenges faced by teenagers and young adults such as employability skills, bullying, studying and exam pressures, career choices, relationships and communication skills

With 15 years experience in working with large corporates across a number of different divisions - Customer Service, Marketing and Learning & Development I have a wealth of experience when it comes to the challenges faced in business/work life. In particular, I can support you in developing coaching/mentoring programmes and cultures, developing high performing teams, producing training needs analysis, training plans and solutions to meet your training needs. All of these are key areas of focus if you want to be successful and maximise results.

life%20coaching2.jpgLife Coaching
For those people who are ready to make a big shift in their life or lifestyle. You may be feeling unfulfilled and/or unhappy and are ready to transform your life. Are you working very long hours? Are you at the point of burnout? Are you missing out on seeing your children grow up? Have you been neglecting some important areas of your life for too long now? I can help you to take stock of your life, re-prioritise and organise your life so that you have time for the most important things in your life.

Screen%20Shot%202014-06-24%20at%2016.12.Lifestyle Coaching for Sports Professionals
Many people think that sports professionals lead a high flying and wealthy lifestyle without a trouble in the world, however, the reality is that they face a number of challenges throughout their career and having a supportive team around them is vital. I help sports professionals to focus on the areas of their life that are most important to them - examples being dips in confidence, coping with injuries, planning for and coping with retirement, finances, relationships, career transition, being released by clubs to name but a few. It's important that sports professionals feel comfortable reaching out for help and I am here to support you.

Youth Coaching
youth%20coaching.jpgIt's not just adults who face challenges in life! For young people, teenage years and young adulthood can be tough. Peer pressure, homework and exam stresses, career/university/college choices, employability skills, complex friendships, relationships, bullying, anger management, family life...and all of that on top of hormone and body changes. It's not easy! I will help by giving you the time and space to talk about the challenges you are facing, without judgement and without imparting any advice. I will listen and help you to come up with your own solutions to those challenges so that you are in control and feel it is the best way forward for you. You'll feel empowered and much happier about current life and your future.
