I discovered my love and passion for helping people fix their life's situations, and decided to train to be a Life Coach.

I thoroughly relish creating an environment where people get the most out of themselves and become the very best they can be. 

As a Life Coach I will give you the time, space and opportunity to have an honest discussion with me about your dreams, goals and the results you so desire. We will then work together, using the best tried and tested coaching methods/tools to help you achieve your goals.

What results can you expect from my approach to coaching?

Coaching is now regarded as one of the most effective professional development interventions. The Life coaching that I provide is business focused using project management methods that delivers positive life changing results and includes:

1.          Getting the job you desire, hitting the ground running and be recognised in your field of work

3.          Develop the necessary skills and qualities to maintain great relationships without losing your soul. 

4.          Managing personal change effectively, remaining sane and at peace. 

I have received excellent feedback and glowing testimonials from private clients for my experience to help individuals achieve all their goals with amazing results.

Here are just some of the stories from satisfied clients:

Heather Brown - Self Employed 

“At the time of meeting Lloyd I was at a crossroads in trying to decide what I really wanted to do with my life. Within our sessions we were able to explore my strengths and weaknesses and tease out the direction I wanted to head in. 

The results of coaching with Lloyd were that I became more pro-active in making positive decisions in regards to my future. I completed a business plan for a music events idea, I researched, paid for and completed training in Family Mediation and have now set up my own business. As well as the professional side of coaching we also set goals in regards to my personal health and getting healthier, this resulted in me setting targets in order to lose weight. I have also recommended Lloyd to other people who have also seen great results. Overall I would recommend Lloyd, as he is a professional person, who takes pride in the work that he does, and gets results.”

Joyce Adu - Strategic Leader 

"Lloyd has a gift for identifying strengths and talents in others. He is a wonderfully genuine and generous person, with a positive approach to people development.

Lloyd is a talented consultant and fabulous to work with. He is inspiring, honest and knowledgeable in all aspects of people management. He helped me to develop in my areas of strength and focus of my goals and aspirations. Lloyd was instrumental in my gaining momentum to pursue my goals and more importantly taking the action necessary to enable me to make the most of my strengths at work, leading to a fantastic career development opportunity."

Sean Chambers - Recruitment Consultant

“I have enjoyed the time spent in my sessions with Lloyd. I have found it very helpful having another person so bounce my thoughts off and discussing my objectives. Lloyd has been very helpful with providing me with business ideas, as well as HR and management methods and principles which I will be using going forward. I found him to be a really funny, levelled and easy person to talk to and our sessions flew by such was the depths of our chats. Our sessions were thought provoking and Lloyd definitely came at me with questions that challenged me and some of my notions and really had me looking at myself. I would recommend Lloyd to anyone and can not praise him highly enough. It has been an absolute pleasure and well worth the time and experience.”

How does this work?

I have developed 3 coaching packages to meet your needs. 

It is worth noting that the coaching sessions can be held via Zoom, telephone or in person. The choice is really yours and of course you can have a mix of different mediums to meet your needs. In person sessions are normally held at a central London hotel. 

My coaching style 

Clients have commented that they leave my coaching sessions with a renewed sense of purpose, direction and clarity.  My style is very much one that will enable the client to achieve self- discovery to generate lasting solutions, actions and strategies from the very first coaching. Comments from clients are that my coaching approach is also warm, friendly, fun, action-orientated, that provided a supportive and encouraging atmosphere to bring about successful outcomes.  

My role as a life coach is the following:

You reap what you sow - I do believe in applying the principle of reaping what you sow in life. The coaching approach is one of developing actions and systems to help you achieve your goals and address your issues. 

Challenging questions - I will ask questions to tease out key information all designed to move you forward. 

Provide constant feedback -  My role is to solely focus on you, support you, challenge and transform you. It does mean that I will frequently check in on you to ensure that you are making progress on the issues or goals you agreed to address. 

Results focused - It is about helping you see the results that you desire from the free consultation meeting and throughout the coaching sessions.
Unexpected results - During our coaching sessions you will undoubtedly experience unexpected results you did not expect to have. 

Return on investment - My clients have often commented that they begin to see return on investment from the first coaching , pointing to how effective they have become and tangible changes in their lives. 

Taking you out of comfort zone  - I will intentionally and deliberately challenge you to think outside your comfort zone to achieve you goals…No same ole, same ole here.  

Firm, fair and fun - The feedback I have received from clients is that I hold people to account and responsible for the goals and objectives you have agreed to achieve, in a supportive and kind way. I also believe its important to have a laugh 

When coaching managers and individuals I undertake the following:

1. Setting the scene- We begin by getting to know you on a personal and professional level, develop and establish ground rules and objectives and ensure there is the right coach/coachee fit

2. We discuss and explore the current “as is” situation, finding out what you have tried.

3. We begin to discuss, explore and agree the “to be“  vision of your personal and professional life. 

4. We discuss the range of options to enable you to achieve your objectives

5. We discuss and agree a plan to enable you to meet your objectives. 

6. We discuss and identify a range of personal development tools, resources and best practices that will help you meet your objectives 

In addition to using  several coaching models, including  GROW and FACTs, I also employ mindfulness and emotional intelligence techniques. When working with managers and individuals the ultimate aim is to help them develop a "can do" attitude to overcome life's challenges to become phenomenal and excellent. It believing that you can achieve anything that you want, be anything you want
