Qualified Life-Coach with extensive experience providing:
- Careers Advice,
- Financial Planning & Goals
- CV Review & Enhancement
- Interview Training & Techniques
- Relationship Coaching & Support
I help clients to identify undesired thought patterns, clarify and establish personal goals.
Major recent focus on supporting professionals during their redundancy and search for work.
Many people are going through challenging times and wish to make changes in their lives. They will try to set goals and objectives with the best intentions. However due to fear, anxiety, procrastination and personal demands will often take the undesired way out. Many decide to put off change, action and simply remain in procrastination
For a number of us without carefully evaluation of our lives, not putting together a purpose/vision, not qualifying, quantifying the demand and impact of the commitment to these goals needed, we will quickly fail to commit as we may not feel empowered. With our best intentions these aspirations can quickly evaporate if we do not have a process, coach or mentor to help us on this journey or move towards a new self-concept.
One of the examples I see every year between January and February is the serge of new joiners at my local expensive gym or runners in the local parks. Unfortunately, by Valentine’s Day around 75% of people come to halt with these activities. Further example is those that wish to apply for a new role but always seem to put this off repeatedly until the next years pay and reward cycle.
I am here to help those that feel they need Coaching and Mentoring by setting up a series of +/-5 sessions that are targeted on a goal or a selection of tightly focused goals to help you to achieve your objectives.
I am a father, husband, part of the BAME ethnic group, CIPD HR Management Professional and have an Advanced Life-Coaching qualification. I was born and raised on a challenging West London Council Estate. I was the first in my family who went to University and attained a 2:1 degree. I have enjoyed a great career working in Central London placing over 600 IT Professionals in the City for two world class professional services consultancy businesses. A number of these professionals earn 6 figure salaries.
From a health, fitness, and well-being perspective I have the experience of running two marathons, 6* Ealing Half-Marathons and 100 Park Runs. My passion for self-reflection, personal leadership and personal growth resonates in all that I do.
I am inspired by the philosophies of Steven Covey 7 Habits of Effective People and more recently Paul McGee S.U.M.O. This influences my daily life in all ways.
This is the backbone to my drive to succeed, how I possess the ability to listen, clarify your intentions, help to unpick your hidden values, and understand the limited beliefs that can often prevent us from achieving our most basic goals and objectives.
As a Life Coach and through the work I do, the first stage of my process when working with others typically features a comprehensive personal evaluation and vison setting/ goal setting activity to evaluate the 7 core areas of your life.
Working together to set some visionary statements and create goals for the most relevant and pressing area/s.
7 core areas:
- Social, relationships and family
- Career & Education aspiration
- Money and personal finances
- Physical health, recreation & leisure
- Giving back, Social responsibility and contribution
- Life routine responsibilities
- Mental, emotional & spiritual health
As a Life Coach, I am simply here to work in partnership with you, utilising my tools and experience to help you take responsibility for and what you do and can achieve.
I will enable you to challenge your thinking and drive you to taking the steps to generate positive change and outcomes within your life.
