About me

As the year end draws nearer, most of us become aware that...

The New Years resolutions time of year is almost upon us!

Make this the year that you take action to achieve your goals, learn how to beat procrastination and increase your motivation.

Who am I and what do I do?

I am an experienced Life Coach based in Poole, Dorset and I can help you.

I help people to 'find their flow', to challenge their fears and to explore their inner strengths enabling them to find their true path in life.

My particular area of specialism is working with people who find that fear is holding them back, whether that is fear in the form of straightforward avoidance or fear manifesting as anxiety, panic attacks and poorly managed stress.

People choose life coaching for a variety of reasons.

Sometimes clients are quite specific that they want coaching in relation to a particular area of their life, such as finding a suitable partner, or obtaining a promotion at work.

Other clients just have a vague sense that something is not quite right in their lives, they know that something needs to change but they have no idea what, or if they do know what they have no idea how to go about it!

So what actually is Life Coaching?

Simply speaking, Life Coaching is a process whereby you will be guided through a series of exercises that are designed to help you to identify exactly what it is that you want to change, what you want your end result to be, and how you can get there. Once you have your goals identified and a plan in place we will use sessions to motivate, encourage, identify obstacles and solutions and to make changes as necessary.

Throughout the course of life coaching sessions we will agree 'homework' for you to carry out in between appointments and this is an integral part of the experience. Its not magic and you must be prepared to put in the work.

Generally the best results from Life Coaching come over a period of time using a series of sessions and progressively advanced exercises.

I will only accept clients who can demonstrate their commitment to making changes and to actively engaging in all sessions. So if you are ready to make some positive changes... get in touch NOW, I can promise you that you will not regret it.

One off appointments can sometimes be offered for particular issues, such as preparing for a job interview or presentation.

Further information

You can access life coaching sessions face to face, via email, telephone or Skype and the price remains the same regardless of appointment format. This will all be agreed on a case by case basis.

I can offer small group appointments should you wish to share the cost with a friend but it would be your joint responsibility to ensure that you can both attend all appointments. This is a really great way to make changes as you can support each other throughout the process.

I am passionate about what I do and I thoroughly enjoy working with clients to make positive and lasting changes in their lives.

Call me for a no obligation chat to see how I can help you.
