After rigorous post-graduate training in Business and Personal Coaching (University of Chester Business School), I now support professionals, leaders and executives on a transformational journey of authentic self-discovery.
Most people looking for a 'life coach' are really looking for a personal development coach to help them understand themselves, live more skilfully, and help them make confident decisions about their future. I'm here to help you do this.
Could You Benefit From...
- Personal development coaching that helps you understand how *you* operate
- Expanded self-knowledge to improve life, career and relationships
- Improved personal effectiveness
- Learn to flourish and grow as your authentic self
- Understand yourself and others to influence more effectively
- Realise your full potential (even if you're already successful)
Learn how to be yourself with greater skill, then go and do it with passion!
I created Authentic Life to help clients understand their personality 'operating system'. My approach is a unique combination of world-class coaching and powerful self-discovery techniques based on the latest science and timeless human wisdom.
Authentic Life is structured and practical. It will help you create transformational change that’s effective and sustainable.
It works because it enables you to make decisions and take confident action that aligns with your personality, your strengths, and what’s most important for you.
Aristotle observed; “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” The truth is that you can only self-correct if you can self-observe ... and I'll help you do that.
Professional Training and Interests
I have spent the last 20 years studying and researching coaching, personal development, self-awareness, leadership best practice, and world wisdom traditions. I've done the leg-work so you can benefit from my two decades of research and training.
The next step starts with a conversation so I offer a no-obligation complimentary consultation.
