I help people transform their lives. Having reached a point in my own life where I thought “Is this it?” I decided that it wasn’t enough; I wanted more. To achieve more, to feel more, to enjoy more, to feel more alive. Now I help my clients to reach that realisation and then act to change their lives accordingly.
My mantra is Live Powerfully. I believe it’s our duty to live as powerfully as we can. To be in control of our lives, to find purpose, to choose our path, to make a positive impact on everyone around us and to create an extraordinary legacy. Not to drift or be blown around by the different pressures in our lives, not to allow others power over how we think, feel or act. And not to wake up at the age of 65 – having worked towards someone else’s dream for 40 years – wondering what happened and why we didn’t do more. Living powerfully is about learning to fully understand yourself, harnessing your emotional intelligence and then forging your own path to creating a rich and rewarding future for yourself.
“I can't recommend Will highly enough.
I initially saw him to try and iron out some challenges I was having at work and doubts about the direction of my career, however the methods he used and the way in which the conversations develop immediately highlighted other areas of my life that I realised I also wanted to focus on.
From the very first session I left with a sense of empowerment and focus, as well as specific action points - all of which I immediately and easily actioned as the nature of Wills coaching is to steer you into reaching your own conclusions and goals, rather than suggesting or advising things that you may not be comfortable with or able to do.
I have seen immediate results at work, and am still in awe of how simple it has been to change things that have been causing me problems and worry for over 2 years. He also helped me identify points in my personal life that I hadn’t realised I was so keen to change, and has helped me find realistic ways in which to do so.
I would recommend life coaching to everyone - the clarity of thought you get from each session is honestly quite astounding, and the impact it has had on my life is significant.
Go and see him - I promise you will not regret it for a moment!”
Vanessa Flaxman, London
“I picked up some really good tools that will be a huge help in the future. Areas that I feel much more confident in are finances and trust issues. He was also really helpful with guiding my thought process and gave me a lot of clarity with decision making as a result.
I could not recommend Will highly enough. He has helped me through a very difficult period and one of the best things about it was that I felt I had helped myself.
Will has given me a lot of confidence by helping me to realise I have the answers to the things bothering me, I just needed help to find them. He is amazing!
Will is a fantastic coach – calm, collected and thoughtful. His input has provided me with increased confidence in myself and my ability. So much so that I am embarking on a career I have always dreamed of but never thought I could achieve. Thank you!”
Charlotte Fowler, London
“The chance to devote energy to me (with support and guidance/challenges where necessary) was such a new and valuable experience. I feel I really overcame some entrenched beliefs about my relationships and personal development, learning a far more spacious and relaxed attitude.
Will’s ability to create an environment in which I could release sometimes painful and tightly held emotions was invaluable. His carefully chosen input found a way to draw me onwards when my instinct was to withdraw (my natural tendency) and provide a backdrop of security which made this possible.
Will has an ability to intuit my limit, continuing to push me on points when necessary and to back off when I was feeling too raw. In my opinion this sensitivity and compassion would be very difficult to teach, but he has it instinctively.
Though our series of sessions was relatively short, the process genuinely changed my attitude towards certain areas of my life. This facilitated huge positive shifts which I attribute to the work we did together.
Will used his natural sensitivity and evident skills to allow me to access parts of my attitude that I had never suspected. Though the process was at times painful, Will supported me to transform this vulnerability into a strength I had never known that has led me to make huge positive shifts in my life.”
Holly Dawson, London
“I gained clarity of mind and confidence in my decisions. A structure to move forward with. Revelation of my true values.
Will has a genuine interest in helping people move forward to live a life they love.
He is straightforward, matter of fact and patient and encouraged me look at things again from a different perspective
He is awesome – he has been very patient with me when I think I have been a bit of a slow burner!
After six sessions with Will I feel like I have clear direction and confidence to fulfil my true values.”

Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Transformational Coaching from Animas Centre for Coaching.
I have worked in the private corporate sector for the last 15 years, in a fast-paced, high pressure industry, most recently managing large teams and creating business strategy for rapid commercial growth. I bring a wealth of management experience to my coaching, both in terms of how to effectively manage inter-personal relationships and also first-hand experience of helping people progress their own careers.
Areas of coaching I deal with
For you to fully understand the coaching process and for both of us to be able to make an informed decision on whether or not we are a good fit, I offer a free telephone consultation normally lasting one to two hours. You will experience deep coaching during this session, whilst we explore your situation and your needs. This will give you a feel for what coaching will look and feel like should you choose to proceed.
Your coaching programme will typically last three to six months and includes eight face-to-face one hour sessions and unlimited support between sessions.
Coaching consists of a deep and powerful conversation in which your development and goals are the primary objective. It will be unlike any conversation you’ve experienced before. Once we’ve decided together on your objectives, I will ask you powerful questions to facilitate you in understanding and overcoming the challenges and goals you face.
During the process I will be listening carefully not only to what you’re saying, but how you say it. This includes the language you use and the way your physiology changes as you talk. This will signpost me towards making sure we address any issues that sit behind the situation you are seeking help with.
The coaching process often uncovers what are known as limiting beliefs. Limiting beliefs are things about us which we believe unquestionably to be true, but actually do not serve us, or in some cases work actively against us and our hinder our progress. A major part of my job as your coach is to identify these and address them. In effect, to help you get out of your own way. Many clients find that limiting beliefs sit behind all sorts of seemingly unrelated issues they experience in life, and identifying and resolving them can be incredibly powerful.
As well as the process of what I describe as ‘pure coaching’ I will also equip you with various tools to help you live more happily and effectively; tools you can take away from our first session together to begin to make powerful, positive changes to your day-to-day life straightaway.
