As well as coaching students and young people I also take a great interest in helping others achieve what they want from life. So wherever you are in life, if you feel stuck and want to change that, then coaching can help you do just that!
After spending my 20’s as a guitarist in a touring band, and for a time also managing the band, I decided it was time to find a more stable way of living. This brought me to officially train in what at the time was my second passion in life – Health and fitness. So I began working as a personal trainer and GP referral instructor, which later led me to train in cardiac rehabilitation.
After a number of years in this industry a life occurrence caused me to face my anxiety and OCD head on. This was the beginning of a journey of self-discovery for me, one of which, had I not accepted and grown through the experience that life had presented to me, I would have never become the person I am today, and that would’ve been a real shame.
Growing through this time involved me spreading my wings of experience in to new things. So herein began an era of a lot of first times for me. From challenging my fear of heights by flying a small plane, to flying over the Nile in a hot air balloon, to solo travelling around Africa, Asia, Indonesia and South America, to learning the golden gem of personal development in being comfortable within my own company, and many other first times, to which there would be too many to mention here.
This whole period of my life led me to train in Life Coaching, and more specifically to help student’s better deal with any stress or anxiety they are experiencing at university, along with helping them to get the best out of their time there, and then their lives beyond education.
“I had my first life coaching sessions towards the end of my final year at uni when I was feeling overwhelmed with deadlines and life as a graduate. The sessions were relaxed and informal and the techniques Tim taught me really helped me stay calm and focused when I was stressed and I will be using them in the future as well, thanks!”
“I really enjoyed this experience! It was cool to discover new things about myself, and to learn useful tools and techniques that I can apply to everyday life - I've found these to be especially helpful as I have started my third and final year of university, and am in dire need of motivation! In particular, the work we did focusing on ways to reduce feelings of anxiety was amazing, and I’ve found the techniques we discussed to be really effective! I have even passed on the things I've learned from Tim to my friends and family, which shows how highly I regard his work! The best dude around!”
“Having never previously thought about undergoing life coaching I can honestly say I was surprised with how beneficial I found participating in the programme. I found Tim to be very welcoming, professional and easy to talk to, even when talking about personal aspects of my life such as the future, family and career plans. Each session was focused on what I felt I needed guidance with, however Tim kept each session well-structured to ensure I got the most out of his coaching.
A session which stands out includes one in which he taught me a technique in which to increase confidence. This has proved invaluable to me during the months prior to my exams. In addition, life coaching sessions have enhanced my understanding of the way my own mind works, including my own perception of time and how I plan events in the future.
Ultimately I have gained a better understanding of how to reach my personal and professional goals, whilst being able to invoke a number of methods and techniques to make me more efficient in everyday life.”
"Having never experienced life coaching before I was unsure of what to expect, however Tim was excellent at explaining what happens and hopefully what I could gain from the sessions. One of the exercises that I have found most useful after finishing the sessions is the memory recall (I can't remember what this was called) in which I recall a 'perfect' moment to help me reduce stress. Tim has been a supportive and understanding coach prior to, during and post sessions providing a great experience and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others."
Testimonials from others:
“Tim is providing me with 1:1 coaching as I prepare to row across the Atlantic in a small boat with two other ladies. This challenge is one of the toughest in the world. It is 80% in the head...so I am loving all that Tim is teaching me. I now have some great tools to use when I am scared, frustrated, annoyed, struggling to cope with someone else's action or decision.....these could be small things in the big world but on a boat could be quite serious. Tim is so patient and helps me explain what I am struggling with; he is then able to provide me with a tool or exercise to manage the situation. I know that with his help I am going to find the head stuff whilst crossing the Atlantic much easier to handle. Massive thanks Tim, you really are helping me enormously. Also when I get home I will still have these helpful tools.”

“My Coaching sessions with Tim have been so much more rewarding than I had imagined. During my coaching Tim made me feel relaxed and totally at ease. As I live in London it was difficult to meet with Tim therefore we used 3 different methods of coaching: phone, face time and in person. After each session I had with Tim I felt more motivated and felt like I was moving closer to reaching my goal. I highly recommend life coaching as it has had such a positive impact on my life. Tim has helped me to realise that through positive thinking and changing my mind set I can feel more in control of my life.
Life Coaching has helped me to be more organised and free up sometime so I can enjoy more me time rather than being overwhelmed with paperwork and admin.”
“From my first meeting with Tim I was impressed with his lovely calm demeanour which is best described as a mix of intelligence, kindness and wisdom. He brought all these qualities to our meetings and I felt very relaxed opening up to him.
After several life events including my daughter being seriously ill and losing my job, life had got tough financially and I had suffered from a lot of stress and my confidence and career identity drained, which had seriously incapacitated me to see a way forward.
Tim was invaluable in helping me work through my confusion and fears about what to do with my future. He made me think about what it was I wanted to achieve by structuring my thoughts through various coaching exercises in a way I’d never thought of before.
By working together in our coaching sessions, he helped me to focus on the things that really mattered to me and to explore new goals and the steps I could take to achieve them. Most of all he helped me to regain my confidence and clarity which has enabled me to look at myself and life with fresh positive eyes, and to be excited about the future.
I have no doubt Tim has found his own purpose in life as a coach and I would certainly recommend him as a coach to anybody.”
