About me

The hardest thing is when we know exactly what we want to do but we just don’t do it. Its more than procrastination, it goes much deeper. We are all hungry to embrace life and to really know and trust. We will explore what's holding you back enabling you to move forward, overlook the fear and break the old habits. Change is possible, you just need to believe its possible and have someone help you get there.

Coaching sessions with me will be non-judgemental, exploratory, focusing on key goals but also gaining perspective on how to manage your life challenges more effectively. This will happen through gaining a better understanding of where you are now and what you want most in life.

It is not an easy process but nothing great ever is. It’s your job to give it 100% and my job to constantly push you in the right direction. We become our greatest, more confident, happier selves when we step right outside of our comfort zone.

I specialise in Leadership and Life Coaching and have 10 years experience delivering large change projects.

Contact me if you are leader, an aspiring leader, are starting a new business, are looking to take a new direction in your life or career. Do you want to overcome your anxieties, constant worry and fear of failure? Success is important but none of that matters unless we are in touch with ourselves and know exactly what we want and what makes us tick.

I started in this arena as an internal coach within a leading UK bank coaching their Senior Executives. Coaching hugely improved the performance of their teams through focussing on their relationship techniques, communication, planning and motivational skills. More recently I've coached a number of clients seeking personal and professional change in their life and have helped clients genuinely transform their lives.

My personal journey is also one which supports my desire to coach, I am passionate about lifestyle, fitness, healthy eating, seeking truth and improving lives, our relationships with ourselves and other people.

You will achieve your goals with me and you will go through a personal transformation.

I work extensively with lots of clients in both the public and private sectors. I also engage with people directly.

Some of my client testimonials...

I provide a free 30 minute consultation/chemistry session to meet and discuss coaching needs and how we will work together. Its important for both myself and my client to be clear on whether coaching is right for them and whether I'm the right coach.

Coaching sessions are £50 per 1 hour session and online coaching is £40 per hour. Discount is applied on block bookings.

Corporate funded programmes are structured slightly differently, please contact me directly to discuss. Team coaching interventions would be designed to meet the specific requirements of each organisation and I would provide a bespoke proposal for this type of work.

Agreed actions and summary of aims are emailed after each coaching session.
