Oliver - Coaching Earth
My name's Oliver and I welcome you to Coaching Earth, Life Coaching to Lift Your World...
ABOUT MY COACHING
Most people get stuck in the big puzzle of life at some point. Some manage to get unstuck, but some linger (for years!) hoping they will get a lucky break or simply abandon their dream life, putting the blame firmly on fate.
But would you like to challenge your current circumstances and make things happen, very quickly?
Signing up to Coaching Earth is the first step to kick-starting your life transformation and get you firmly on a positive and constructive path to achieve your goals.
All it takes is your commitment to the coaching sessions, acting on the outcomes and an open and inquisitive mind.
SO, HOW DOES IT HAPPEN?
Well, quite simply I'm going to ask you questions about various aspects of your life and listen.
They will be deep and sometimes challenging questions that will require you to think about things from an alternative perspective and get you to a point where the only option is FORWARD, diminishing the power of those stubborn thoughts that are keeping you from progressing.
My sessions are designed to help you explore and discover key solutions or revelations about yourself that have been blocked, sometimes by fear of failure, or just the distractions of modern life. The experience is often profoundly liberating and motivates my clients to finally take ACTION.
It may be uncomfortable at times and it may be hard work, as those stubborn thoughts don't want to move into a new and unfamiliar territory of thinking. But a wise man once said, 'life begins at the edge of your comfort zone' (Neale Donald Walsch) and I'll be there with you to listen and explore, in a safe and supportive environment to help you reach your goals.
At the end of the coaching programme you will have already noticed a profound transformation in your life, maybe even have achieved some significant goals, but my aim is that I leave you with new skills and tools to carry on independently so that irrational barriers don't stand in your way EVER again.
So, are you ready to take the leap into a more confident, brave and empowered version of YOU?
Of course, you are and you're going to love it.
NOW IT'S UP TO YOU.

"Oliver as a coach struck the perfect balance between professionalism, and being warm and friendly, helped along with his winning smile! His sessions are tailored to your style and preference and had the right balance of getting to know you as a person, and “getting down to business."
"Oliver is so welcoming and puts you at ease right away. I felt I could tell him anything without being judged.”
"He would ask the right questions which led me to areas I didn’t even think needed my attention."
"Thank you, Oliver, for being so patient and always asking the right questions to guide me so I can get to understand myself better, for your time and 100% attention! The world needs more Olivers!!”
"Oliver is a compassionate and active listener, but he won’t let you off easy. He will encourage you to shine a light on the things that you’ve hid in the dark. This is one of the things Oliver was born to do."
“Oliver is very perceptive and has a very keen sense of when to let people talk and when to ask questions. He challenges in just the right way, making you really question your stated beliefs. I have learned a great deal about myself from having only a few sessions with him.”

My journey to becoming a Life Coach has been a fascinating adventure, which I will attempt to summarise below:
- I originally studied at the uk's top media university (Bournemouth) to become a television producer, going on to work for a number of production companies including the BBC.
- I moved on to win a scholarship at one of the uk's top theatre schools (Mountview A
- Academy), training as a musical theatre performer and then working across the uk and internationally.
- I moved to Australia temporarily, freelancing for theatre and online marketing organisations.
- On moving back to the UK, I became a civil servant working in criminal intelligence analysis and international relations.
- I have been a volunteer for the Samaritans (the telephone listening service in the UK)
- I have also created my own wedding singing business, performing in London and across the UK.
In between, I have bought my dream flat in central London and undertaken a healthy amount of world travel (you won't meet many people who have visited North Korea!), braving some exhilarating and inspiring adventure sports, including rock-climbing, mountain-biking, scuba-diving (with sharks!) and snowboarding.
So, why such a diverse background?
Well, I believe that life is about choosing a vision and then making it happen, and each of these life choices has been an expression and exploration of who I am and what I have wanted to experience in my life so far.
It has to be emphasised however, that each of these achievements and experiences haven't just fallen into my lap at all. I don't come from a particularly outgoing or adventurous family or social background where these opportunities were handed to me on a plate.
I have had to proactively go out and make them happen on my own, often breaking out of my comfort-zone, sometimes reinventing myself and usually challenging my perceptions of my own competence and self-worth.
Each time has felt uncomfortable and scary and has required a battle with my inner critical voice telling me it wasn't possible.
But through hard work, focus and persistence, it was always possible and the outcomes have always rewarded me with a profound inspiration, life-affirmation and a sense of freedom, that you really do have a choice of what you want to be and do.
When I meet people, I often get told they have never met anyone with such an eclectic life history and positivity and it has made me realise how much is possible when you have a vision and develop a philosophy to make it real.
This is your world. Own it.
On this journey however, there was always a feeling of discomfort that my pursuits have been mostly self-serving. I found out I was an ‘empath’, meaning that I am highly sensitive to the emotions of others and decided to train as a Life Coach to nurture this side of me. I couldn’t believe how fulfilling the course was and how natural the practice felt to me, and I managed to achieve a distinction.
Life Coaching perfectly captures the skills I have developed in all my previous work in creative arts production, information analysis and listening support work, not to mention my proactive skills in renewing my own life situation when I wanted to try something new.
It is now my goal to inspire others to transform their lives; choose a vision and live it.
As a practising coach, I find that I truly care about my clients and feel privileged when I have the chance to be their coach.
I would be honoured to be your coach.
