Six years ago I was at a crossroads in my career and I knew I wanted to be happier but I had exhausted my own ideas about how, so I had some life coaching. Deeply skeptical, I hit search on the Google page, spent some time reading around websites and picked a coach.
He did genuinely change my life. I gained huge conviction over the right direction for my career and took action on this. I was dissatisfied with a number of other areas in life; again he helped me either make changes or put things in perspective.
Why did it work? Because I came up with the plans and the answers. He asked brilliant questions and was an ally and hugely encouraging but I owned the action plan so I followed through. No more “one day I will…..”
It was so powerful that after a few weeks I realised I had to learn how to help others like myself. So I trained at the Coaching Academy, Europe’s largest coach training school.
Through helping others (see the testimonials page) I am even more convinced about the power of coaching. I specialise in helping clients with their careers. I work with individual clients to achieve work-life balance for them: if your work is right and your life is right, the balance will take care of itself.
Being in the right job for you is central to living a fulfilled and flourishing life and will increase your levels of happiness. Take a look at my blog for some ideas and quick tips on boosting happiness.
As well as 1-2-1 coaching I also run groups for stressed professionals in West London. These are currently free and are an informal way of discussing, sharing and learning ideas around work/life balance and breaking out of the stress spiral.
Given my background as an entrepreneur, I also felt that coaching would work well in small businesses. I have combined hands-on experience, an MBA and coaching to create tools and workshops that have transformed the companies I work with. See the links above for more details.
