Life Coaching

Life coaching is about building resilience, flexibility, perseverance, courage and integrity, with the primary aim of helping clients live their espoused or perhaps unspoken values.

I have helped clients address a wide range of issues by getting to the root of problems, and encouraging active change in the real world, including:


Emotional Issues

  • Depression
  • Burnout
  • Anxiety
  • Stress management
  • Performance management in sport and work
  • Looking for a sense of purpose

Work-related Issues

  • Starting a business
  • Publishing a book
  • Making the transition from corporate to self-employment
  • Career and job change
  • Motivation problems at work
  • Finding motivation and direction in life in general
  • Balancing work and family
  • Job satisfaction
  • Career success

Relationship-Oriented Issues

  • Divorce and relationships in transition
  • Finding satisfaction in current relationships
  • Personal power and behaving effectively in relationships

Each client is unique, and will often bring an entirely new issue or combination of issues.

Coaching with me is powerful – you will be heard, and you will be encouraged to make realistic and appropriate change. In weekly, face-to-face sessions, I first hear your story. Then, through relevant, concise, and sometimes challenging questions which integrate seemingly distinct issues, I help you find your own solutions. You take action, and see what works and what doesn’t. I support this process with ideas, encouragement, and inspiration. I encourage you to contact me between sessions via email or telephone as needed.

Through the coaching process, learning takes place at many different levels, and ideally, culminates in real action.
