About me

My name is David Bottomley.  I help leaders deliver great outcomes for their business, their teams and for themselves. I help individuals develop balance, calm, well-being, confidence, motivation and self-esteem, and to relieve anxiety and stress. I also provide career coaching and specialise in helping people considering retirement or semi-retirement.

For leaders - I coach executives, experienced and new leaders from all sectors - specialising in the technology, digital, retail, finance, healthcare, supply chain and charity sectors. 

  • Are you finding it difficult to manage the expectations of your business?
  • Do you find board meetings a real challenge?
  • Is your team as happy and productive as you would like them to be?
  • How is your work/life balance? How is your mental and physical health? Do you suffer with stress or anxiety?
  • Where is your career going next?

I will help you to survive and prosper; whilst being balanced and true to yourself in the demanding and complex world of day-to-day operations and change.

For individuals - I provide empathetic and practical help with confidence, motivation, self-esteem and personal development. I also provide career and life coaching to help you clarify your goals, values, strengths and create a plan to meet your personal objectives.

If you would like expert help from an independent, trusted and experienced coach - who will help you open new doors, dismantle walls and raise the roof - then do get in touch for a free open-ended, confidential discussion.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Life Coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Life Coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
