About me

How Coaching can help

From time to time in life we face many problems, fears, and setbacks. We get side-tracked, find it difficult to deal with everyday issues and get caught up in all the problems that life often throws our way. If this sounds familiar and you are getting caught up in a tangled web of problems, where your decisions and choices are being affected, then coaching could help you rebuild confidence and make positive changes, which are sustainable.

Life coaching is a self-help service designed to help you get out of a state of desperation while putting you into a state of inspiration. Whether you are looking for short term or long term coaching, with my less talking - more doing approach we can begin to develop empowering habits and rituals, which strengthen your core values and unlock your true potential.

In a nutshell, life coaching is designed to help provide you with the support and guidance you need to excel in any area of your life. Where you can develop new skills and capitalise on your strengths to overcome weaknesses outside your comfort zone

My Approach

My coaching style is forward focused and solution orientated. I like to make sessions as relaxed and enjoyable as possible, where we can talk openly and honestly about your feelings and thoughts where you can think optimistically yet realistically about life's circumstances.

I strongly believe that a trusting relationship between coach and client is key to allow any change to take place. I practice an integrated approach to coaching where I can provide the client with effective techniques, strategies and tools that will help them become more resourceful when dealing with difficulties.

All I require is for you to be committed and willing to explore possible solutions that might help you overcome the hurdles you face. Working together we can design a plan specifically for you where you will soon begin to believe that anything is possible.

As flexible working is key for many individuals, I can either travel to you or alternatively you can come and see me in my London studio. I also offer Skype coaching sessions.

If you wish to discuss your concerns, fears or aspirations then please contact me confidentially by phone or email and I will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

If you wish to go ahead with coaching, please contact me to make an appointment for a free assessment session, where we can get to know each other and explore your reasons for coming for coaching.
