About me

Talk more. Be emotional. Be strong. Be happy. Be happy all the time. Pay your mortgage. Pay the bills. Help with homework. Pay the other bills. Work long days. Be a good child. Be a good parent. Be a good citizen. Care about the environment. Care about everybody. Volunteer.

It's great if you're able to clap along happily all the time, but that's not the reality for most of us. Rather we're pushed and pulled all over the place and have strong emotions about lots of things. What is the point of everything we're put through, and everything we put ourselves through?

I don't know the answer. Only you do.

What I do know is how to give you space, encouragement, challenge, guidance and tenderness in a professional relationship to help you figure out what's brought you here, what your pressures are and what you're being put through....and how you can move forward.

Training, qualifications & experience

I've coached rugby at a variety levels for over a decade, and spent five years in corporate project and portfolio management around business change. I have worked with suicidal people at a sanctuary for two years. I have a huge range of experience which enables me to work with people to help them in most aspects of their lives, whether that be their career, relationships or social ways of being.

Various qualifications, and I am also a registered member of the BACP as a psychotherapist.

MSc (Lond), BA(Hons) (Dunelm),

I've done various short courses on different techniques and tools, as well as working with certain client groups such as those with Dissociative Identity Disorder and how to use creative aspects such as music, sand tray and imagery.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
