As a life coach, I help clients to find a quicker and easier way to get the life they want.
Having a coach enabled me to revisit the limiting beliefs that held me back from achieving what I wanted. This has boosted my self confidence in a big way. Although many of my clients are gay men, I am comfortable coaching people irrespective of gender and sexuality.
I grew up in a working class family in Cardiff in the 1970's and attended the local comp. Growing up gay I appreciate how homophobia can impact your self confidence. I enjoyed my school work and was lucky enough to get a full grant (when they still existed) to study law at university. I then qualified as a solicitor but my heart wasn’t really in it, so I moved into Human Resources in the private sector.
Eventually work became unfulfilling; I knew what I didn't but had no idea what I did want to do. A close friend suggested I hire a coach, who helped me decide what I wanted and how to get it. I enrolled at the Coaching Academy and am now a qualified coach.
Putting something back into the system I benefited from is really important to me. I was volunteer Chair of the Sussex Aids Centre Trustees Board, overseeing the merger with Terrence Higgins Trust. Being a board member of Pride in Brighton & Hove was also hugely rewarding, as I had the opportunity to contribute towards providing LGBTQ+ people with a safe space for at least one day a year.
I am now a volunteer focusing on gay and bisexual men, for men's mental health charity Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM). I am also about to become a young person’s mentor for the Princes Trust.
My mission is to pass on the benefits that I've enjoyed from coaching; working out what you want from life and building your self confidence, so you can achieve it.
