About me

What should I do now?

Life today has a way of driving us into tighter and tighter spaces. We move faster and work harder, trying to keep up. As the pace quickens and the focus narrows, it’s hard to stay connected with others, and even with our selves. It can be tough to find the space to develop the skills we already have. It’s harder still to begin to notice the skills we have neglected for years and, patiently, to begin working on them.

Whenever the pattern of normal life appears to be shifting, it’s important to be aware of the possibilities on offer and to have the skills required to take advantage of them.

That is where I can help. Coaching is a wonderful opportunity to identify and tackle issues that are difficult to address on your own.

Together we look at what is holding you back, what stories about ourselves need to be let go, and what new possibilities explored. We all have blind spots and 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
  • Inner criticism
  • Feeling stuck
  • Loss of direction
  • Speaking up

We are all unique – so I get to know your world, your challenges and your ambitions before designing a coaching programme tailored to your specific needs. Undertaken with support, kindness and commitment these programmes fit into your life, and address your goals.

Life's too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. Let me help you learn and develop better ways to handle the issues that are standing in the way of your goals.

Please get in touch and let's see if we can work together.



"(Through coaching) I began to see for myself the direction I wanted to take in life.
Jamie is caring, supportive and easy to talk to" - Jenny - Teacher

"Engage with Jamie and he will explore where you can grow, and blossom... Through a personalised programme you will see a beneficial development path that encompasses your whole life, taking in career, home and emotional aspects. It’s a process that promises enrichment, wellbeing, balance and ultimately enhanced happiness. "- David - 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"  Ross - 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.” Kim 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."
