Find A Greater Sense Of Purpose And Meaning

Most successful people understand the benefits of investing in themselves. And make no mistake, coaching is an investment you'll return many times over.

Life coaching isn't just for athletes, pop stars, and corporate executives – or indeed those facing a supposed midlife crisis. It's for anybody sensible enough to realize they have some blind spots that could benefit from an experienced set of impartial eyes.

As a coach, my job is to challenge you to get specific on what you want for your future and – most importantly – why. I then help you figure out how to adopt the most useful mindset to achieve your goals, along with the right strategies and routines to get there as quickly as possible.

The outcomes of coaching can be life-changing. Indeed, your 85-year old future self may one day thank you for it.

Coaching Style

I have a pragmatic approach to coaching – one that doesn't involve rainbows, unicorns or a magic wand.

I use strategies and tools that are likely to be most effective in your particular situation. These are all based on leading research in coaching, positive psychology, time management and leadership development.

An atmosphere of openness, warmth and total non-judgment is what you can expect from me. What I ask from you in return is a curious and playful commitment to your growth process.

You’ll find out that humour and lightness are essential in my work as a coach. Turns out the odd dad joke works better than most self-help clichés.

And although I don’t have that magic wand, as your accountability coach I’m more than happy to crack the whip occasionally.

Coaching Services

As an online life coach, I speak to clients via video – mostly Skype or Zoom.

Coaching online allows me to work with clients across many different time zones. It also means I’m able to hold space for you wherever you feel most at ease – in your office, on your couch or on the road.

Everyone I work with expects different outcomes and has a unique way of thinking and doing. That's why after our initial consultation, I plan an individual programme tailored around the tangible results you can realistically expect after five or ten sessions.

For most clients, that involves first clearing up some of the fog around where to go next by coming up with a detailed plan. We can then focus on making some visible and consistent progress towards implementing that plan.

Here's an overview of the goals and topics I regularly work on with clients. Do have a look at some of my articles too to get a better idea of what I do.

How is online life coaching different from in-person coaching?

Online life coaching isn’t any different from in-person sessions – aside from the much shorter commute to my virtual office.

Coaching is a conversational technique designed to help you get specific results in life. You and I don’t need to be in the same room for that to work well.

As an online life coach, it’s unlikely we’ll ever bump into each other. Clients often tell me that me being so far removed from their physical lives makes our work all the more powerful. It means we can build a relationship that’s open and sufficiently detached at the same time.

Life coaching online also makes it possible to record your sessions. You can watch and re-watch yourself, tapping into some of the momentum you felt during the session. Watching and listening to yourself talk offers an unusual meta-perspective, as well as a wonderful way to – pardon the pun – zoom out.

What can you expect from online life coaching?

As an online life coach, I help my clients design more exciting and more meaningful futures for themselves.

My job is to make you see the wood for the trees. I boost your clarity about who you are, what you want, and why. I then keep you on the straight-and-narrow when it comes to implementing that vision.

Think of me as the helpful stranger you bump into when you're feeling a little lost. Not the one who’ll pickpocket you in a dark alley, but a stranger with excellent orientation skills happy to join you for part of your journey.

Together, we'll explore any existential and practical questions in an open and non-judgemental way. I'll help you give form to any dreams or goals you're perhaps not quite ready enough yet sharing with anyone else.

Part of that process may require freeing yourself from others' expectations – family, peers, society, etc. It also involves learning to trust yourself more by following through on your commitments and no longer procrastinating.

How do I get started with online life coaching?

Want to find out what working with an online life coach feels like?

Drop me a message with a short description of what you're hoping to achieve, and we'll take it from there.

I offer a free consultation to people interested in working with me, and if I think we might be a good fit. This one hour call allows me to understand better the results you're looking for. We'll do some actual coaching too, so you'll get some real value out of it.

At this point, I only offer packages of five or ten sessions. If you decide to proceed with a paid package of online coaching, I'll send you some initial homework, and we can schedule our first few sessions.

Many clients decide to continue after that, but that's by no means a requirement.

I try and be as flexible as possible during the week. Bear in mind that slots may be limited depending on my availability and your time zone.

What does the online life coaching process look like?

Online life coaching with me is neither a cheap nor a quick fix. My sessions are highly personalised, and I don’t force people through a generic coaching programme.

A lot of the coaching magic happens in-between sessions which is why I offer a fair bit of homework, exercises and self-assessments from the very beginning.

There are four elements to what I do as a coach. Sometimes I take clients through all four elements chronologically, but you’re free to pick and choose.

1) Identity and future self

A lot of talent is wasted not for lack of effort, but lack of direction.

You might feel that life is okay, but something is missing – perhaps a sense of security, meaning, belonging, or fun. Or maybe you’re transitioning into a different stage of your life – voluntarily or forced by external events – and you’re not quite sure what to make of it.

Through a process I call wayfinding, I help clients create a stronger sense of who they are, as well as a clearer sense of who they want to become in the next decade.

2) Goal setting

My job as a life coach is to help you identify some of the goals or outcomes you want to see over the next one to two years.

We’ll then break down those goals into smaller, manageable milestones while guiding you towards choosing the right priorities for you.

I always make sure you’ll commit to specific actions after each session. Deeds, not words will guarantee you build momentum and make progress.

3) Systems and processes

No matter how clear your vision or how 'SMART' your goals – without the right mindset, you'll make little progress.

Adopting the right habits, rituals, and environment is therefore vital when it comes to success.

I’ll help you introduce new behaviours to increase your productivity and help you resist any of the temptations that are currently keeping you stuck.

4) Accountability

If you're looking for a ‘tough guy’ who’ll shame you into taking action, I’m probably not going to the right coach for you.

My approach to accountability is to treat clients like the adults they are – clever individuals who are self-motivated enough to hire a coach and do what’s needed.

Pearson’s Law says that when performance is measured, performance improves. That’s why I’m big on putting easy systems in place for you to celebrate the victories while targeting any areas for improvement.
