Coaching is a great way to identify and tackle issues that are difficult to address on your own.
We will look at what is holding you back, what stories about ourselves need to be let go, and what new possibilities can be explored.
We all have blind spots, so having a skilled companion who can shed light on some of them as well as giving you practical new skills is invaluable.
Some examples of coaching topics are -
Lack of confidence
Whether this is holding yourself back, or trying to please others, we will breakthrough the old fears and stories that we tell ourselves so that you feel seen for who you are and have belief in your own inherent value.
Do you recognise that little voice in your head that makes you doubt yourself and your abilities? Together we get to understand this self inhibiting habit and how it works so that we can take the steps needed to overcome its negative impact.
Loss of direction
Are you feeling bored, stuck, or just going through the motions? Together we will re ignite your drive, by addressing what really matters to you in life and designing your work / life accordingly.
All coaching topics are different and unique to you.
I get to know you, your world, your challenges and your ambitions before designing a coaching programme tailored to your specific needs.
Coaching programmes vary from 5 - 10 sessions depending on what you are looking to achieve.
Please get in touch and let's see if we can work together.

It’s a process that promises enrichment, wellbeing, balance and ultimately enhanced happiness. "- Accountant
"Through better understanding and recognition of myself, Jamie’s coaching has helped me achieve what I would never expect of myself. What I’ve learnt from Jamie has been invaluable and couldn’t thank him enough for his guidance and experience" Software Consultant
“Jamie gave me realistic targets and skills to help me deal with whatever worries I had that day/week/month. I’m so happy with my progress and even though I finished the programme, I’m happy to say I’m still using these skills today. Jamie is professional, understanding and willing to help guide in whatever way he can, I can’t recommend Jamie enough.” Secondary School Teacher
“Working with Jamie has been an eye opening experience. Through the exercises he gave me, I began to know myself better, in a way I wouldn't have on my own. I began to modify how I approached my professional and personal commitments and relationships in a more constructive way. Most importantly, I changed my view of myself and my control over events in life. He is a great listener, very observant, thoughtful, thorough, and funny. It is an experience I highly recommend."

Areas of coaching I deal with
£70.00 - £80.00
Free initial telephone session
I offer 30 minute free coaching session by phone to get to know each other and discuss what you are looking to achieve from the coaching. This will allow us both to get a flavour of what it might be like to work with each other and whether it is a good fit.
I try to keep my fees affordable with the fees agreed according to individual circumstances and requirements.
Each session lasts between 60 - 90 minutes.
If you are looking for ongoing support and are thinking about a coaching programme ( 5 - 10 sessions) the initial session is fully refundable if you decide that this type of coaching is not for you.
Between the sessions you will be given practices to take up which are designed to help develop new awareness around your coaching topic.
Our sessions will be held at a mutually convenient location for the client and coach. When it is not possible to meet face to face coaching can take place over Zoom.
When I work
Monday to Friday, 9am - 7.00pm however, I have limited spaces for weekends.
I have consulting rooms in Hadleigh and Woodbridge, Suffolk. I also provide coaching all round the country and world using Zoom.
