About me

I was thinking about how to advertise myself here, I thought I would list all the qualifications I have and my coaching background etc…

When I thought about it though I realised that what you are really looking to find in a coach is a connection. Someone whom you can talk to and who can help you find the solutions that are right for you.

So to help you make the right decision about whether I am the right coach for you, here is some real information about me.

Area of Speciality:

I work with people who are looking to develop their confidence. Lack of confidence is something that can insinuate itself in to every area of our lives; relationships, career, and family, causing us to doubt ourselves and any decision we might make. I work with my clients to understand what is driving the lack of confidence and we develop strategies and techniques to overcome this.

My story:

The journey that has lead me to today has taught me lot about what having confidence means, and how your life can be impacted if you don't have confidence.

For many years I worked in the financial services industry and whilst there I set my sights on being perfect and not making a mistake. I made some close connections to people and got very stressed if I missed a target or deadline. This lead me into a downward spiral where I always felt I was failing, this in turn lead to an anxiety disorder. I battled with anxiety for a number of years and tried many different ways of dealing with it including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Pills and counselling, all of which helped and made a difference in the short term.

Finally I discovered NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and had a very good coach who helped me through my anxiety and out the other side. Along the way I also discovered using NLP helped in all other aspects of my life. My relationships with my partner and family, my work (I no longer work in Financial Services), my health, both mental and physical all improved. Part of this was that I learnt to control my emotions so that they work for me not against me.

This all lead to me working for myself 6 years ago as a coach and trainer.  I qualified as an NLP Master Practitioner and coach as I am passionate about enabling people, like you, to make changes.

No problem or issue you face is trivial, or insurmountable and no one should have to face his or her issues alone.

This is what drives me to continue to do what I do.


I trust that this has given you a feel for the kind of person I am and if I am the right coach for you.

I wish you all the luck in the world on your journey.

This call usually lasts for approximately half an hour, during this call we would discuss the issues you are facing and discuss possible courses of action.

Should you wish to continue then there are 3 options:

?Here you are able to work on deeper issues and spend time exploring how you can make changes to your life. The timing of the sessions would be agreed to give you the space to assimilate new ways of thinking and to put what has been discussed into practice.
