Life Coaching

Are you continuously in that mouse-wheel, keep putting yourself under pressure, a slave to your mobile or laptop, or just fear the future?

Many of us plan our work or project within our own job so carefully to ensure we succeed but do we do it for ourselves – it very seldom happens?  Why not reflect on what you really want to achieve for the future and create an action plan to ensure you enjoy your life.

Achieving a Life/Work balance is difficult – it can shift over time without you realising it. Imagine being able to acquire self-awareness immediately! Well it doesn’t quite work like, it takes thought and careful consideration. Embarking on this coaching is a small step but it could be a major stride in achieving the appropriate balance.

A coaching contract with Neil motivated me to take action and gave me real clarity around my goals and ambitions. I would have no hesitation in always recommending Neil for both Executive and Life Coaching. His professional coaching approach, challenging but supportive and above all enjoyable made my journey of discovery all the more fun.

How can I help you?

I provide personal coaching and mentoring based on my experiences of life and training to enable you to create a focused plan over time, to bring you the results you want and improve your life.

I am your sounding board in a totally private and confidential way.

I have direct experience with this issue:

1997 – In a job covering the whole UK – a pressure position but one I thoroughly enjoyed. I planned my time extremely well. Unfortunately I did not plan my family life so well – I was letting down the people that were close to me and I needed a change.

I was introduced to NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and with their coaching I fine tuned my life and planned better: I began to focus on work during the week and my family (and sport) at weekends.

2001 – The company my wife and I worked for went bust. I worked in Bournemouth but lived in Tunbridge Wells – it was very hard being away from my family.

2005 – I needed a contingency plan after the demise of my previous employer and the fact that I was in my fifties, so I sought help from a coaching course. After completing the ‘life balance wheel’ I found that of the 8 sections covered only the earnings element was satisfactory. On the Sunday I was coached through the process of “what if your company asks you to leave” and the next day it happened! But paradoxically, this put me in a strong place to move forward with my contingency plan.

2011 – I made some significant changes to be able to work in my home town spending valuable time with my family and have time for additional interests too. My earnings are significantly down but I am happy.

2015 – I now work from home focusing on my own business as well as being a Non-Executive Director for an insurance network. I am seeing a coach for this transition.
