About me

Do you sometimes wonder if your life could be different?

Sometimes you reach a point in your life where you know that something needs to change. We all experience times when we are anxious, uncertain or not confident: times when we know that life can be so much better than this. After all, if you keep on doing what you've always done, you'll always get the same results.

With my range of interconnected personal development skills I can help you:

  • get to the root of who you really are;
  • find and release the limitations that have held you back;
  • overcome stress, depression and anxiety;
  • gain confidence, motivation and energy;
  • improve your career, your health and fitness, your relationships and your general well-being;
  • become a happier, more confident you.

"Thank you so much for helping me change my life! I have my optimism back. Something a few weeks ago I felt had left me for good" - J.W., Hove

What do we do?
We work together to help you find your purpose, fulfil your dreams and achieve your goals. On your journey we look at why you do the things you do. Using a combination of coaching skills and therapeutic interventions we work on your confidence, your worries and anxiety. We can overcome bad habits, phobias, weight and health issues. We focus on and develop your qualities and enhance your positivity, self respect and motivation. It really is a life makeover.

'Oh how my relationships have improved, I feel in balance, I enjoy my family, I feel loved and appreciated, fulfilled but most of all capable and content.' - I.D., Uckfield

Midlife changes
As well as general coaching and therapy, I help those who are suffering what some may call a 'mid-life' crisis.  Though in fact such crises can and do happen at any age. 

These times of change, dissatisfaction and loss of confidence are often linked to a transition in your 'values'. They are a natural hiatus which can, with help and support, lead to a period of massive growth. 

You can move to new levels of wisdom, satisfaction and achievement, with the right help.

“Robert has used coaching and his extensive knowledge of therapy interventions to help me find more focus in life and overcome my own limitations. I am now finding more purpose and confidence to map out and take control of my future, while making the most of the things I have now." - G.Y., Brighton

Additional information

I offer a range of packages, depending on your individual needs. A free 20-30 minute discussion will enable us to decide what course of action is needed for you. This session can often be extended at a pro-rata rate to a full one-hour if needed.

The most economical way to work is to select one of the packages below. For individual sessions expect to pay around £90 per 50 minutes. All my services are tailored to suit your individual needs.

Some example 'packages' include:

  • 6 1 hour session package deal - £490
    Create a commitment for yourself by pre-booking 6 50 minute sessions in advance at a slightly reduced price. Tcontent of these sessions is tailored to your particular situation. We might look at a key area of life you want to improve or we might deal with an issue that is holding you back.
  • Ultimate Coaching Package GOLD - £2,520
    The most thorough and cost-effective way to work in coaching is to have regular sessions. This package is available via a one-off payment, and is also available via a monthly payment plan. In both cases, the minimum period is 12 months.

    For this you receive:
    * 2 regular 90 minute sessions each month
    * 2 additional sessions to be taken as required
    * up to 4 sessions can be banked if not used immediately.
    * work on any issue
    * therapeutic and coaching interventions are included as needed
    * additional email support where necessary
    * limited telephone support where necessary
    Any additional sessions that you require can be purchased at a reduced rate when you are on an Annual plan.

  • A one day 'breakthrough' session from £450 - we spend the whole day exploring your values, beliefs and strategies in life to get clear on your strengths, improve your confidence and find your direction and purpose.

  • From time to time I run retreats and other events, abroad and in the UK. These events take place in comfortable and high quality environments that reflect the value we need to put into ourselves. Numbers, locations and prices vary, so just get in touch to find out more about what we can do together.

Further information

Most sessions are held at Vinings Natural Health Centre, in Haywards Heath, West Sussex.

It is sometimes possible to offer some sessions in Hove, West Sussex.  I can occasionally offer sessions in a client's own home.

There is parking close to all venues as well as local shops and other facilities.

I also coach on the phone, via Zoom, and even by email.

Your safety
My main offices are in local centres where there are usually other clients, reception staff and therapists or doctors.  If you feel you would prefer to have a chaperone or a friend attend the sessions with you this is very welcome.
I am an ex-teacher with an impeccable record and am always happy to update my DBS certificate where working with children and vulnerable adults is concerned.

Vinings Therapy Centre has wheelchair access.

Client comments
Kathryn, Haywards Heath: "
I was introduced to NLP by a colleague, to help with the general anxiety I had been feeling for quite some time. I was keen to try a more positive approach than therapy I had experienced previously. In the past 6 months since working with Robert I have come further than I thought possible back then!
"Timeline therapy worked quickly to help me draw a line under negativity from the past, and Robert has equipped me with a number of practical ways to help me manage things better going forward. This has positively impacted on my general wellbeing and my close relationships. I also learned a lot about myself and what's important to me through the coaching exercises.
"I no longer feel that anxiety is a problem for me, it's just a case of understanding and managing things better which I am now able to do."
