MSc Occ Psych | Experienced Coach | Confidence, Clarity & Happiness

About me

I am a London-based guy with 20+ years experience of providing calm, friendly, respectful, honest thinking space in which busy people can get to a deep understanding of who they are and what they want for themselves.

I passionately believe that learning, openness to new experience, and having a sharing-mindset are what life’s about.

Ultimately I want everyone to be comfortable in their own skins, seek out fun & grab it where they find it, and do more to help each other out along the way.

Words that clients have use to describe their achievements with me: commitment, self-esteem, enablement, engagement, exploration, understanding, realisation, alignment, clarity, confidence, action, happiness.

Member organisations


Association for Coaching (AC)

The Association for Coaching is one of the leading professional bodies for Coaches and Organisations.

The Association is made up of a number of different membership categories, e.g. Associate Member (AMAC), Member (MAC), Accredited Member (AC Accred), with the different categories standing for different levels of training and experience. Accredited Members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

In these challenging times, my approach can help anyone to:

  • Gain clarity on your next career move
  • Manage your stress and wellbeing while working from home
  • Refocus on what matters to you

And if you're a manager:

  • Understand how to manage others at a distance
  • Learn how to effectively coach others at a distance

Finally, the two core themes that come up rain-or-shine:

  • Assertiveness for those who feel awkward in social situations or struggle standing up for themselves at work
  • Listening, empathy and communication skills for those who have been told they are 'blunt', 'abrasive', 'rude', 'strong-minded' or 'too assertive'.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Life Coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Life Coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Happy and willing to meet in public spaces that are easy and comfortable for you to access.
