In 2002, I left the corporate world to 'go it alone' as a self employed coach... To bridge the gap until my coaching business took off I trained as a masseur & on one occasion a stressed out deputy head came to me to de-stress by receiving a relaxing massage... and so it began.
It just so happened that the cause of his stress was that an 'anger management ' consultant had let him down at the last minute after the deputy head had arranged a course for a cohort of students, received parents, governors & staffs approval and was all set to go.
This led to a conversation about my coaching business which led to me solving his problem by becoming the coach assigned to his student cohort.
Fortunately the success of this created more work in his school as well as others and developed into my coaching also being utilised by colleges and Universities and I have now coached over 15,000 students and 1000s of staff via 1-1s, groups, teams, workshops, assemblies & seminars both in the United Kingdom and the United States, working with them to embed the principles of success which will not only enhance the quality of their journey through Education, but also the quality, richness & results they achieve in life.
Delighted to have been gifted opportunities which have seen me work as a Coach In Education for over 12 years now.
My Vision is to continue to grow Youth Coaching and my passion is to help and inspire other coaches to live their passions and purpose for the impact they wish to have in this area and so my goal is to 'get out there' more and share my experiences of how I have done it in the hope that it raises peoples awareness to the massive & exciting opportunities that exist in Youth Coaching at numerous levels & the huge opportunities that are around to make the difference that makes a difference.
