Your choice : Is 2018 moving with freshness and excitement, and in the direction you want?


You have a choice or rather many choices every single day of your life. Those choices can dramatically effect your success and happiness. One example is whether to invest in your own dedicated coach; and to use your coach as your skilled partner on your “life journey”. Coaching can help you explore options and support you to make the best choice. Just consider for a few minutes how you could benefit from this calibre of support!

It does not matter where you are. So, whether you are local to Kent, based anywhere in the UK, or even anywhere in the world – you have a choice of how to progress with your own dedicated coach.

Your choice: select the method that suits you best:

  • Face-to-face
  • Phone
  • Skype or FaceTime

More and more clients are choosing to have their coaching using Skype, FaceTime or phone.
Of course face-to-face coaching is still available – how could it not be! 

Just call me to ask how this works – it is so easy … and effective!


Peace and calm

In what can be a hectic world – you have a choice to find places where you can be calm and peaceful. Taking those decisions is priceless.

Local, UK or Worldwide clients

From my base in Whitstable,  I serve a strong client base here in Kent; my local towns being Whitstable, Herne Bay, Faversham, Canterbury, Sittingbourne, Maidstone, Birchington and Thanet (Westgate, Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate).

Meanwhile, my old base in the East Midlands (covering Nottingham, Derby and Leicester and beyond), still accounts for  a third of my current business.

I can serve you wherever you are in the world. Hence, in this time of smart technology it is so easy to connect wherever you are in the world.

Who do you know in Kent who might benefit from Business or Personal Coaching?



Free workshops and support for small businesses in the Canterbury City Council district

If you run a business in the CCC district – principally Canterbury, Whitstable and Herne Bay – or are thinking of starting a business, you can benefit from free support provided by Canterbury City Council through their StartMyBiz and GrowMyBiz brands.
Julie Waller and I have carefully prepared a series of workshops, which we deliver free to local business thanks to funding from CCC. The workshops are designed to help all businesses move forward in a clear and structured manner – our suit of workshops are:
1) Start-ups
2) Marketing
3) Business Planning and
4) Finance
The workshops are highly participative – attendees don’t listen to us ramble on as we make sure they about and apply principles to their own business. They have fun whilst their business grows!
We are sure no one else delivers workshops like these! Just call me to find out more.

Time to keep all the plates spinning?

Time is the precious yet transient quality that is there for us all to use as best as we can. I often ask clients how well they manage their time. Usually, they reply well, but then go on to tell me how hard it is to fit everything in – to keep all the plates spinning. The trouble is “you don’t know what you don’t know”! In other words, if you use the techniques that you are aware of to the best of your ability, it might not be enough. You may need to learn other techniques. – what I call the “fourth generation approach” to time management. How we use each minute of our time is our choice.
To find out more simply give me a call.
