My clients are ambitious, motivated and creative.
As a qualified and experienced life coach, for over ten years, I've collaborated and worked with people who are now on a clear path to reaching their full potential: towards living a life doing what they love.
Where my clients struggle is with finding the inner confidence to take the action necessary towards living a more fulfilling life.
Often they arrive depressed, stressed, or very, very stuck. Feeling less ambitious, constrained and unclear, they are often feeling confused about what changes to make, or what opportunities to take during a change of circumstances.
Together we find confidence, focus and clarity and a clear path forwards.
We begin by clearing the mental (and physical) clutter and then focus on the deep inner work often overlooked or worse, neglected, towards developing a personal road-map which leads towards a more fulfilling and exciting life.
In November 2014, I launched a successful podcast on what it means to lead a rich, creative life. This ‘how to’ series has now reached over 60,000 downloads having interviewed over 100 successful best-selling authors, entrepreneurs, artists, producers, coaches and business leaders. Listeners are able to hear their strategies and stories towards living a life that is not only satisfying, but also often exhilarating.
As a speaker and workshop provider, I also address corporate, small business and university audiences as well as media institutions, on the topics of creative leadership and the power of personal listening experiences: supporting creatively minded individuals towards realising their full potential.
My personal and professional interests have always included collaborating with others, exploring human potential, and using creativity to find both purpose and and a sense of connection with life. I’m excited by, and love, what I do.
I look forward to working with you to achieve the same.

Here's what those I've worked with have said about me recently:
"Rob is both a consummate professional with deep subject matter expertise, but also a deeply caring person who gives thoughtful support to his clients. He is also a talented coach and consultant. I recommend him with no reservations and much enthusiasm!" - Pam Slim (www.pamelaslim.com)
“The utter exhilaration and deep sense of Joy that comes with my newfound clarity is liberating. I wake up with a smile on my face, and I go through my day feeling excited, eager and filled with a renewed hope. I feel passionate and determined. In one word, I feel alive again.” - Val D., Bali, Indonesia
"Rob has been the single most powerful influence on my business. I’ve had a number of coaches in my time who I consider to be world class. One has trained people at Facebook, Qantas and Yahoo. Another has worked with the best educators and speakers on the planet. If I had to choose between all of this support or my time with Rob, I’d pick Rob every time. No words can really describe the power of Rob’s passion and ability to listen and guide. I couldn’t recommend a coach more highly." - Steve Palfreyman (www.stevepalfreyman.com)
“Rob's inspiration has made making decisions quicker and the confidence to go with the inspiration that I have in the moment: To ship work early, to test ideas. Before I would hold onto an idea and wait for it to be perfect, meaning that most of my creative ideas would never see the light of day. With Rob's guidance and encouragement many more of my ideas are now being put into action, which allows them the possibility to blossom into something bigger or become part of something that I'm already working on.” William Mankelow, Photographer, Oxford, UK (http://www.shotatanangle.co.uk)
“I’ve worked with Rob collaboratively on a number of creative productions as well as on developing future projects together and have found him to be a professional, energetic and congenial colleague who combines high technical standards with an ability to engage with conceptual aims and set achievable targets.” Graham Johnston, Photographer, Painter and Film Producer, Norwich, UK
"I've had the pleasure of working with Rob many times over the last decade and I've found him to be a total professional who brings a wealth of energy, agility, positivity to support his great depth of knowledge in his chosen subject. A truly engaging person who has inspired me on more than one occasion. I've worked alongside Rob in a technology role many years ago but more recently around his Professional Life/Business coaching and its for this and his Podcasts that I'm most grateful. Whether its one on one coaching or developing a program of business coaching for an entire company Rob has the skills, expertise, commitment and personality to make it a real success." - Nigel A., Director (Technology), London, UK.
“Having worked with Rob over a number of years, I have always found him to be incredibly supportive, insightful, and skilful. His recent coaching advice helped me prepare for a major Director level interview and also subsequently supported my transition into a completely new area of the business. Aside from active listening and providing a sounding board, Rob has delivered high quality advice on reading materials that supported my preparation, including, but not limited to, suggested reading lists and on-line resources. Overall, a dedicated and focused professional and with a passion to help others reach their full potential.” Andy H., Head of Communications (Creative Media and Music Publishing), London, UK
