About me

Hi, I'm Jon and my vision is to help people to think positively, feel better and find joy, happiness and fulfilment!

I use a 'person-centred' approach, and accredited with the Association for Coaching UK.

  • Are you living with untapped potential?
  • Feeling lost, stuck, down and frustrated?
  • Are you feeling the pressures of life / society? 

You may have been exploring a need for change for a while?

Or, perhaps you're experiencing a new calling as a result of a life event, transition, or a situation that has occurred?

Either way, 'life happens'.

To get where you really want to go, you have to develop positive qualities -- which I can help you to achieve:

To name a few:

Resilience, Courage, Curiosity, Kindness, Responsibility, Gratitude and Love. 

Self-improvement doesn’t mean doing everything on your own – it also means knowing when to seek quality guidance, to ask for help from advisors, mentors, or someone who sees you as a 'whole' person.

Someone who can stand back and see your blind spots, who truly cares and is an expert in getting results, someone who truly 'gets you' and has truly 'got you'.

That's where I step in!

I understand how hard it can be to dig deep and push through the tough times. I know how frustrating and lonely it can be to live your best life, in your own head, and not bring the results you crave.

We're all human, we're all unique, and who we are is supposed to be experienced and shared with the world.

After all, what's a life half-lived?

Good times are ahead - 100% guaranteed. 

So on that note, I can help you with:

  • Improving confidence and a healthy attitude towards yourself.
  • Developing resilience to change.
  • Managing stress, depression and difficult emotions.
  • Overcoming adversity & making meaning from life's struggles.
  • Developing interests, hobbies and career prospects.
  • Improving relationships.
  • Finding joy through connection with others. 

How I work "5 pillars" for Coaching:

  1. Offer full presence, listening intently to any concerns.
  2. Showing empathy, understanding and compassion.
  3. Focussing only on your needs, in the moment.
  4. Asking appropriate questions, when necessary.
  5. Trying to leave you feeling a greater sense of well-being. 

I provide a 100% confidential service, in line with ethical codes of conduct from the Association for Coaching (UK), including supervision and professional development. Contact me to arrange your FREE initial session.

Client Testimonials / Endorsements

"The main benefit that I have gained from John’s my coaching was that I started to practice a martial art – this is something I had been planning to do for years but could not get to – because of work and family commitments.  It has been a great success having John’s kind support, listening, and questioning skills. I have been enjoying Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) for 2 years so far. 

Jonathan was great at supporting me and after every session, he offered great feedback, and I felt energised and optimistic about the future. 10 sessions every 2 weeks. Perfect.  Highly recommend John’s services." Andy
