How can I benefit from a life coach?
Life coaching can benefit people of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, abilities and motivations. The key questions are, however, similar because they are those of being human in a busy world. In a typical day my clients may bring challenges which include, but are not limited to, the following:
- dealing with technology, anxiety and stress,
- feeling lonely or feeling overwhelmed,
- experiencing the pressure to succeed,
- being hard on ourselves, being too soft with others,
- needing to manage our anger, feeling embarrassed,
- wanting more influence
- and feeling the need to perform
- whilst all the time searching for happiness and love.
I can help you convert your deepest motivations into actionable life goals.

Our life coaching principles
Every consultation we undertake is guided by the following life coaching principles.
Holistic Whole Mind / Brain Power Partnership Approach
Your zone of peak living will be where you awaken your whole mind, experience and personality. You do not need to be “fixed” or rescued. This may have been neglected in the past but you are your own best expert.
All discussions and correspondence is confidential to the individual client in their coaching session and also out of it. For those occasions when family members, colleagues or friends are referred, no confidential information is shared. If there it seems helpful for the individuals to discuss material covered during our coaching sessions I will potentially coach the people concerned in how to have these conversations themselves.
Life coaching strategies
I use a number of strategies to help clients map and realise their personal and professional goals. In our sessions you’ll find us working out what genuinely makes you tick and setting up powerful motivation for you to succeed that balances the key aspects of your life. You may experience getting more excited about your potential, better organised in your life or more clear minded as we brain on solutions to long-standing life dilemmas. There’s a lot of listening on my part so that I know how best to bring on the tools for you to thrive in the way you want.
Here are a selection of some of the tools we may use:
Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)
Using language to break down mental barriers, create more functional life habits and improve overall communication and empathy. Neuro-linguistic programming is a cornerstone of a good life coaching strategy, as it engenders the use of positive and constructive language to help us overcome personal and professional limits.
Neuro-linguistic programming also helps clients to understand how we identify patterns and habits in our own lives, in the hope of re-defining them and making progress with new skills andnew behaviours.
Strengths and Personality DNA Profiling
Myers Briggs and Gallup Strengthsfinder are excellent tools to help you understand where your strengths and challenges lie, providing clarity for you to make decisions on what you would like to do about them. I am accredited to coach in Myers Briggs (BTI) Step 2 (inspired by Carl Jung). Over the years I am continually amazed at the profound insights MBTI 2 can trigger in clients about their blind spots and strengths. It’s often resulted in deep personal insight and knowledge of how to naturally flourish through personal transformation.
