Youth Development Coach

About me

I help young people improve their lives through focusing on improving their mindset, habits & lifestyle. Together we will build a tool kit to put you into a resourceful state allowing you to respond skilfully to life's challenges. I believe developing these skills early in life is essential to build resilience and to set you up for success. 

We will gain clarity on what your core values are and what’s important to you in your life. Channeling this into service and using your skills to make a difference in the world creates a meaningful life.

My Approach

I am a firm believer in being a life long student and an avid learner of practical wisdom which can be applied to life. My own purpose is use my knowledge and skills to improve the lives of other people. 

My sessions generally take place as online video calls, prior to each session I’ll send a coaching call form allowing us to get extremely focused on what it is going on in your life. We shine a light on what it is you want to get out of the session and how we will achieve this. I make short hand notes in the session to ensure nothing is missed and we will set action steps after each call to put learning into practice. I will also be your accountability partner on this journey. 

I also create monthly deep dives into important life topics & skills which really allows my clients to excel in their life’s. We will build a tailor made curriculum around you. Topics I have covered before are planning & organisation, building lasting habits, managing stress levels, discovering your values & finding purpose & using ancient wisdom for modern life. 


Mindset really is everything! Many us live a very limited life and mindset to match this. I believe in a growth mindset and will help you see what is possible in your life. Through taking a step back viewing life from a bird's eye view and using purposeful questions will start to make powerful shifts in your life. Through this practice you will begin to see obstacles and challenges in life as opportunities for growth. 

Through using active listening and thought provoking, questions to dig deep inside yourself below the surface level answers to uncover. We will also use a range Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) tools to help develop your confidence and mindset. Combining this with this ancient wisdom and lessons which can be applied to modern day living to build your toolkit for a successful mindset.


Working together we will create systems that work for you to put you at peak productivity. This will also help you to feel organised and lower stress levels. We will explore ways you can stay in your "zone of genius" and show up as your best self in crafting the life you want.  Leaning on self discipline will create a solid platform not only to excel and get the results you want. Balancing this with activities that help you rest, recover and refuel your passion. 

We will work through a tailor made goal setting programme to gain clarity on what your goals are to leave you feeling motivated and inspired as you work towards these.


Your lifestyle should set you up for success. Together we will look at ways we can make small changes and build habits as stepping stones to get you where you want to be. I believe it’s important to start small and build up. Small changes done consistently over time compound to make big results. To assist this we will put in place empowering routines to make growth & wellbeing an automated habit.


We will use several psychological tools to help you gain clarity on your life purpose finding that sweet spot of what you are good at and how you can use this in service of others. This is where true meaning comes from in life.

“Post covid my son became quite negative about himself and his future, he lost his sense of purpose and needed guidance to re-engage with his A-levels. Kieran has been amazing, he has been the reset button needed - providing non judgemental advice and suggestions, challenging behaviour and embedded bad habits. I have seen such an improvement over the last six months with my son’s confidence, ability to self regulate, goal setting and positive mindset. My son said Kieran improved his confidence in sport, giving him the self belief to have a voice, so much so he achieved ‘players player’ award at his end of football sessions awards” - Parent to young client July 2022
