What makes me different from other Lifecoaches?
Apart from the fact that I've been there and got the T-shirt myself I have developed skills and gained qualifications that can make a real difference. I am very down to earth and take an honest and realistic approach with my clients.I will only work with you if I think I can help you.
Training, qualifications & experience
My experience is a mixture of my own personal journey and qualifications gained along the way:
I became involved in personal development after suffering from anxiety and depression as the result of the sudden and tragic death of my mother. At the time I did not feel that the general help available was as helpful to me as I needed, so I began a journey of researching and trying a variety of alternative therapies.
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 Lifecoach, Trainer and Counsellor full time.
I have worked with young parents, the unemployed, Doctors, Nurses, Pilots, Cabin Crew, Local Authorities, Mental Health Organisations, 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 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 Goalmapping 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.
I am a Human Factors Expert , having managed, recruited and trained a Human Factors Team (Leadership,Teamwork & communication) in Aviation.
I am particularly interested in working with men's issues as they appear to be underrepresented in the field of Mental Health Support.
Additionally, having been bullied at school myself I have a natural empathy for young people in a similar position
I have recently qualified as a Mindfulness Teacher
I would normally charge £70 per hour including a free 30 minute (no obligation) session to assess how we can work best together, usually over the phone.
I can, however,offer a 'sliding scale'; ie: a reduced price package for those on reduced incomes, students and the unemployed.
Discounts on block bookings are also available.
If I don't feel am the best person to help you I will say so and try to signpost you in the most suitable direction.
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 fulfillment. 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.
Goalmapping 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.
Talent Dynamics, Goalmapping and any bespoke workshops to large groups,organisations or industry are priced as discussed and negotiated at the time.
You can expect from me:
- A very warm welcome
- A non-judgemental attitude
- Acceptance of who you are and where you are at
- A down to earth approach
- Equal Support & Challenge
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!
