Variable personal and corporate rates:

My fees for individual coaching are significantly reduced from my corporate rate to enable broader access to coaching. Having been privileged in my own developmental opportunities I wish to give something back to individuals who do not have access to this type of opportunity within their working environments.

Free first meeting:

I offer a free introductory session where we discuss your challenges and goals. This meeting will provide you with a real life experience of working with me so that you are able to confidently decide to proceed or not.

Discounted fees for block payment:

I offer both session by session rates and discounted block payments to suit your needs.

Please make contact for further information

Venue to meet your needs:

I seek as far as possible to find a venue that works for us both and therefore work from a variety of venues.


Office Hours and by agreement after hours

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.
