I’m a coaching psychologist working with people to help them achieve their dreams and goals. I work with clients on a wide range of areas. I particularly enjoy working with clients on personal growth and development, personal wellness as well as setting up new businesses or creative projects. I'm most passionate about working with people who have hundreds of ideas and bringing them together into fruition.
My experience is based on my masters-level studies in coaching and positive psychology and my successful goal-setting web business. My personal philosophy as a coach also draws somewhat on 12+ years Buddhist practice.
My favourite thing to do in life is to have hopeful, open, honest and meaningful one-to-one conversations. I believe that each client has unrealised potential that I help unlock, so that they can achieve more of what they want from life. So that they can more live more fully realising their immense potential.
A large part of my life purpose comes from my experience of difficulty and a desire to use this in a positive way to help others. I have made great progress in dealing with the aftermath of child abuse and the inevitable mental health challenges, and I have faced and overcome personal issues including drugs, drink, gambling, and having a polygamist father.
I love philosophy and classical literature. Some of the writers that inspire me are Victor Hugo, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Daisaku Ikeda, Leo Tolstoy, and Fyodor Dostoevsky. I also love sports – tennis, football. A few random facts... While living in Japan I represented England at the soft tennis world championships in South Korea and was interviewed on Korean TV. I also once won a Lazee-boy chair like the ones Joey and Chandler had in "Friends", by entering a competition on the Chris Moyles TV show where viewers were asked to complete the sentence "I'm so lazy... something something something".
If you would like to find out more then please do email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact me here. I love hearing from clients and prospective clients.
I offer one free 30-minute coaching taster session via phone/skype. If you then decide we're a good fit then I offer coaching sessions at competitive rates and across a time period that suits you. I offer face to face (in London) and virtual sessions (anywhere). For face to face sessions in London these can be held at a location that works for you – home, work, your favourite café.
I look forward to hearing from you!
