Hi, I'm Chris.
Firstly thank you for taking the time to check out my profile.
As a Life Coach, apart from the fact that I've been there and got the T-shirt myself, I have skills that can make a real difference. I'm very down to earth and take an honest and realistic approach with my clients.
You may want to:
- Be in a career you love and get up every day feeling good about going to work
- Find out what to do with your life
- learn how to handle stress, anxiety, depression and traumatic situations from your past more effectively
- Set and achieve realistic goals
- Find out more about your personality & skillset
- Gain more control over your life
- Become better at decision making
- Change destructive habit patterns (eg.smoking, weight)
- Advance your CV and interview techniques
- Learn mindfulness techniques to help control stress once and for all
I can help you with all of these and manny more.
I have worked with; young parents, the unemployed, Doctors, Nurses, Pilots, Cabin Crew, Local Authorities and Mental Health Organisations. Experience of dealing with a wide variety of issues including; confidence building and public speaking; coming to terms with sexual orientation; suicidal thoughts; helping make subject choices for students; career development and redundancy issues, as well as helping with anxiety and panic attacks.
I am particularly interested in working with men's issues as they appear to be underrepresented in the field of Mental Health Support.
What You Can Expect From Me
- A very warm welcome
- Non-judgemental attitude
- Acceptance of who you are and where you are at
- A down to earth approach
- Equal Support & Challenge
Please feel free to send me an email or call me for your free 30 minute (no obligation) session.
Training, qualifications & experience
After training as a Counsellor I became a Human Factors Trainer (Communication, Teamwork & Leadership in Aviation), whilst continuing to work as a counsellor on a voluntary basis for 10 years.
I became involved with the Assessing & Recruitment of staff and Trainers and gained a PGCE to begin Lecturing part time. I then trained as an NLP Practitioner and took voluntary redundancy in 2009 to work as a Life Coach, Trainer and Counsellor full time.
I am qualified in the following:
- Post Graduate Certificate in Education
- BA Social Sciences
- Diploma in Counselling
- NLP Practitioner
- Goalmapping Practitioner
- Everything DiSC
- Talent Dynamics Performance Coach
- Talent Dynamics Performance Coach for Young People
Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
With Talent Dynamics and Goal mapping I specialise in helping people find the best role for them in the workplace and how organisation can get the best out of their team. This applies to students, current employees, career changers, those setting up new businesses and those facing redundancy.
£70 per hour including a free 30 minute (no obligation) session to assess how we can work best together, usually over the phone.
I offer a 'sliding scale' reduced price package for those on reduced incomes, students and the unemployed.
Discounts on block bookings are also available.
Taking the Talent Dynamics Test is a brilliant way to find out which of the 8 Skills Profiles you are and more importantly suggests where your skills would be most effectively directed, hence giving you the most fulfilment. It costs just £50 with an additional (no obligation) Consultation at £70 for feedback. This service is available for young people (9-21), so, great for students making subject choices.
Goal mapping is available, a workshop at £70 per person for a full day. Once again some discounts are available. This can also be done on a 1-2-1 basis at a negotiable price or in one's own time together with sessions.
So, why not get in touch and start the journey to really live your life to the best of your ability?
After all you only get one!
