Hey! I'm Chris Lovett, TEDx speaker, multi-disciplined coach, minimalist and author of the bestselling self sufficiency, green living and business motivation book Discovery of Less. The book is the journey of how I sold, donated, recycled and discarded virtually everything I ever owned, ditched a rubbish job, travelled the world, changed careers and helped people unlock their potential by embracing a less is more approach to life and work.
I've written articles on the topic of simplicity, changing careers, working less but better and well-being for mainstream platforms such as Marie Claire, No Sidebar, Minimalism Life, Simplicity Voices, Fast Company & Inc. I've also been a guest on high profile podcasts such as Law of Attraction Changed My Life & Freshly Grounded. My corporate speaking clients include household names such as PwC, LV= Insurance & NatWest Bank as well as appearing as a TED speaker and hosting workshops at London's biggest mindfulness event, The Mindful Living Show alongside Ruby Wax, Russell Brand and many others.
I help individuals, teams, families and leaders remove the physical, digital, mental and career clutter that is getting in the way and share the incredible positive impact and psychology behind letting go, our relationship and attachment with consumption and busyness and the 'always on' mentality.
As well as that I've supported all sorts of people with confidence issues, especially around changing careers and imposter syndrome, as well as personal development. I went through it all when I changed careers (more than once!) and I know what worked well and what didn't.
Plus, and sometimes more importantly, coaching and mentoring doesn't always have to be serious and sombre, it can be fun too.
A lot of us are overwhelmed with stuff, always busy and have a million and one things going on. All this stuff consumes our time, energy, money, relationships and impacts on our well-being and the ability to do the things we want to do and be the person we want to be.
I told my story to others and I can help you create your own exciting stories with successful endings.
Lets unsubscribe from your current way of living and working and unlock your potential.
We're overwhelmed with useless stuff and consumption and its time to stop.
Training, qualifications & experience
My 25 year professional career (I know, I don't look old enough, I moisturise!) has stretched across multiple industries and companies ranging from football clubs to 'big four' banks. I've worked with all sorts of diverse people from all sorts of backgrounds ranging from unsigned musicians (who are now household names) to top executives. People seem to like something about my coaching style that is a little bit different, a little bit progressive and disruptive. Coaching can be so boring and serious all the time, lets have some fun whilst getting into how we can help you be you, in high definition.

“I’ve been fortunate to receive coaching from Chris on several occasions. I have access to numerous coaches and I specifically chose Chris as I find him hugely professional and trustworthy. I found his style really supportive and calming.” - Sarah S
“Prior to chatting with you, I was feeling unmotivated and 'stuck'. You challenged my perspectives and I was encouraged to critically reflect, which was both challenging and rewarding. You helped me realise that I can take control of my environment and not just let stuff happen to me. I left feeling empowered to make positive changes, which I have now done. Thank you so much." - Ilijana P
"My new work approach is so simple, I had the answers all along but I was just so caught up people pleasing that I had no time to think for myself. All of a sudden I've got some time back. It’s crazy to think I just got used to living at 100mph doing things that on reflection didn't make much difference to anyone." - Michelle T
“It felt such a calming place to be and so refreshing given my work and life is mostly chaos” - Katherine N
“it was really useful and refreshing knowing others feel the same about their stuff. I picked up on some good ideas to help me deal with some of the ways in which I can work more efficiently and also more importantly, what I need to say to others around me, including my boss. I just wanted to say thank you, I feel a lot better after your session” - Felicity N
