Our First Meeting?
Our first meeting is free and we can do it face to face, Skype or telephone. Here I explain the options and approaches available for you. We then decide if we are the right fit and which approach is right for you. If either of us decide I am not right for you at that time I will, if you wish, refer you either to one of my associates or other appropriate support.
Our Coaching Relationship?
I will be supportive, empathetic and reliable. I will strive to ensure you do not become dependent on me or others. I will help you deliver insights which will empower you to grow now and in the future.
If at the end of our session(s) you are more insightful, more confident, less anxious. If you have developed the strategies and tools to deal with future challenges, then I have achieved my mission.

- Three years ago when I retired from my ‘for money’ career I volunteered as a support worker for a charity and coached, mentored, and supported vulnerable people of all ages who were in crisis from homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless due to their mental health issues. Later I trained new support workers for this and similar roles and provided development courses for existing staff. The insights and skills I gained here greatly assist my effectiveness with helping clients with motivation, anxiety, depression and relationships issues
- Having made mistakes, had lapses in confidence, faced uncertainties, within my relationships, my career, as a parent therefore I can and will empathize with your challenges.
What clients have said
"I had been bumping along in my job accepting that I had reached my ceiling. i was frustrated but could not see how I could progress. At my annual career review my boss suggested I get a life coach. She described how Howard had helped her and other senior managers develop their careers. I grasped the metal, contacted Howard, and the rest as they say, is history. He used a mixture of self development tools and exercises and got me to keep a personal development diary (a strange process, not what I thought, but what a power!). As a result of working with Howard I am more self aware, more confident and have a life plan not just a career plan. And does it work? Well, I have just landed my dream job and my girlfriend is moving in! !!! What a difference!!!
"The skills and knowledge I learnt from Howard have rescued me from a 14 month conflict with my ex. I am now using these skills in other areas of my life like my work and with other family members".
"After graduating from University my son was struggling to find a job let alone a career so on the advice of a friend I persuaded him to work with Howard. What a success! Together they worked doing a personality profile and values exercises. The result was amazing! After just three weeks my son announced that he wanted to work in nature conservation and has now successfully landed a job. He is so very happy and positive. We are all so grateful to Howard".
"When my partner announced that she had signed us up to work with a life coach I was very skeptical that this approach could help us with our relationship problems. We had already tried and failed with counselling but Howard's approach avoided dwelling on the past and instead focused on our future as a couple. Instead of just talking he gave us exercises which provided us both with new insights about ourselves and about us as a couple. It worked well for us both, we are most certainly back on track enjoying our wonderful life together".
"I had tried and failed with numerous diets over the years. I had six sessions with Howard, my life coach, and it was like someone turned the lights on. I finally understood why I would eat inappropriately and by addressing those issues I am now not dieting but lead a healthy lifestyle, healthy weight and have a sensible approach to food. I am not the weight certain people say I should be but I am the weight I want to be and I am very very happy with life. No longer do I allow others to judge me".
