About me

There are effectively two reasons that you’re not living the life that you want to be living.

The first is clarity. Do you know exactly what it is that you desire?

Most people have a very clear picture of what they don’t want… We don’t want to be unhealthy, unhappy, unfulfilled, for example… But what do you want? And how clear is that image in your mind? What does healthy, happy or fulfilled (for example) look like to you?

Consider the example of a sat-nav system – the more detailed the co-ordinates that you enter, the closer that you will find yourself to your destination. Take Big Ben for example… If you were to type “London” into your hypothetical sat-nav, you would be searching for a needle in a 1 572km² haystack. Type in “Westminster”, however, and you would have a much greater chance of success.

If you were to type in the actual postcode, you would find it extremely difficult not to emerge into the shadows of one of London’s most iconic landmarks… The greater the level of detail - or clarity - the easier it becomes to successfully navigate towards your "destination".

The second reason that you’re not living the life that you want to be living, is a lack of confidence. You may call it fear, but when you are armed with the shield of confidence, fear is simply not an issue…

There is what psychologists call a “confidence-competence loop” – the more competence you develop, the more confident you become. Here, however, is where the problem surfaces – it’s the lack of initial confidence that prevents you from taking the first step towards developing that competence. As my mentor, Bob Proctor would say, “It’s the start that stops most people.” Remember also what Lao Tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage” – Dale Carnegie.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life… How much longer are you prepared to settle?

Something needs to change! If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got. You need a different perspective, or, as Einstein says, “a different level of thinking.”

You are different. Unique. So why choose to live your life on other people’s terms? You're here because you know that you are destined for something greater.

“Change is inevitable – personal growth is a choice.” Bob Proctor. You have a choice to make, and - as Tony Robbins suggests, “it is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped". You can choose to reinforce your excuses, or you can make a decision, and start NOW, to take the first step towards the life of your dreams…

Make a decision. Shape your destiny. Cut through your excuses and design your new life.

Or don’t – the choice is yours…

  • “I was having serious problems in my life, my work was causing me a great deal of stress and I felt helpless in being able to tackle the situation. The transformation has been dramatic, I am a far more confident and decisive person , I am more aware of my surroundings and how I can control my emotions in difficult situations. I have a new enthusiasm for life, and credit must go to Colin for helping that transformation to happen."
  • “I now feel more focused. My confidence has ascended since I started the coaching, thanks to Colin, and I feel happy and in control with my new found confidence. I now believe in myself. I feel strong enough to accomplish my goal I had only dreamt about.”

It’s time to take back control!

Apply for your complimentary breakthrough session, and together, let’s unleash your true  potential – armed with the sword of clarity and the shield of confidence…

There are no strangers - only friends that we haven't yet met. I look forward to meeting with you soon…

Have a GREAT day!


Training, qualifications & experience

What follows is a brief overview of my "credentials..." Allow me to be brutally honest, the solution to your problem lies not in my credentials, nor in my testimonials - they are listed below, purely for your reference... I honestly believe that the only way in which you can truly determine whether my coaching is right for you - at this time, is for you to personally experience the transformation for yourself.

It is essential that you trust - and feel empowered to work with - your coach, and therefore crucial that you have the ideal coach for your unique requirements. Coaching is definitely not "One Size Fits All".

Apply for a complimentary breakthrough experience at ...

I generally tend to avoid labels, but...

I am the best-selling author of "What DO You Think?" and founder of CS-BCoaching and The Art of Balanced Living. I am a professional Mentor, Speaker, CPD Accredited MasterCoach, and certified Eating Psychology Coach, having qualified with merit through The Coaching Academy - the world's largest coach training organisation of its type.

Furthermore, as a certified consultant within the world-renowned Proctor Gallagher Institute, I am privileged to be personally mentored by Bob Proctor  - widely considered to be one of the greatest teachers in the world on the topic of human potential, success, and growth.

I have been featured in CV Magazine's "2018 Coaching Elite", and was shortlisted in two categories for The International Coaching Awards, 2017 - "Life Coach of the Year", and "International Life Coach of the Year". I have been nominated for the "Outstanding Holistic Therapist" in the forthcoming 2018 Centre of Excellence Awards. I was also approached to contribute towards Winspiration Day, 2018 - one of only ninety selected global thought-leaders and educators - sharing the global stage with Bob Proctor and Blaine Bartlett, among others... I am also honoured to serve on the WBECS (World Business and Executive Coach Summit) coaching team.

I have also studied "The Breakthrough System" and "Core 100" programmes through The (Tony) Robbins Madanes Training Centre, and have attended Tony Robbins' flagship live event, "Unleash The Power Within." In September, 2017, I attended Brendon Burchard's "High Performance Academy" live seminar in San Diego, California,  and have since certified as a High Performance Master.

I am a CPD Accredited Coach, an NLP Master Practitioner, and a Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence Facilitator Practitioner. I am certified also in "The Science of Happiness" through Berkeley, University of California, and "Buddhism Through Its Scriptures" through Harvard University, as well as in Stress Management. I am also a Mental Health First Aid Instructor.

I founded the Pinner Personal Development, and Bob Proctor Seminars Meetup groups, and also chair the Watford and Middlesex Coaching Community. I subscribe also to the CPD accredited Personal Success Academy.

I studied Hotel Management at The Durban Institute of Technology - with distinction - and have amassed in excess of 25 years' managerial and training experience within the Hospitality and Retail sectors - culminating in the role of Master Trainer at Lillywhites, Piccadilly Circus. To put it simply, I understand what "makes people tick" - personally and professionally.

With experience in major corporations such as McDonald's, Holiday Inn, Sun International (where I had the honour of meeting Nelson Mandela), Southern Sun, Whitbread, Tesco, ASDA WAL*MART, SportsDirect, Debenhams and Lillywhites (to name but a few,) I also possess extensive knowledge of the corporate arena.

Through a unique blend of Coaching, NLP, Mindfulness, and Neuroscience; coupled with extensive managerial and interpersonal experience - delivering exceptional (award-winning) customer service - Colin is a catalyst for positive, meaningful and lasting transformation.
