What most people do when faced with stress, anxiety or depression is wait until it gets so bad they can’t see a way out, they take medication to alleviate the symptoms, or they wait for treatment to discuss the past and how they got here. And for most people, none of that works.  You alleviate the symptoms and not the cause  You’re managing side effects when you should be managing your recovery  Waiting delays your progress and creates more bad coping habits  You are focusing on the past when your life is in the future  You are not learning new tools and techniques for dealing with future challenges At last, there’s some good news, I found a solution. I’ve been similar to where you are, so I know, this isn’t going to be easy, but it’s not impossible. Having experienced stress, anxiety, and depression in my teenage years and throughout my twenties, I had tried all the usual routes to deal with my challenges. I was on anti-depressants, and more medication to take the edge of my OCD. I’d had a series of counseling sessions and now understood why I was unhappy. The problem was… I still felt depressed, I was still living in the sterile environment I’d built for myself, and no one was telling me how to beat it. That’s when I discovered life coaching and the therapies of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy, and Hypnotherapy. Don’t worry too much about what they are and how they work, I’ll explain more when I speak with you and until then you can google them if you’re interested. Just know that they worked for me.  I was able to let go of the negative emotions and events from my past. And break free from the beliefs I had about myself which held me back.  I became confident and increased my self-esteem.  I was able to see my future clearly and had a plan of action on how I would achieve this, living and working proactively and productively.  I am engaged with the people and the World around me and my new found resilience means I can handle change as and when it happens.  I committed to a life without stress, anxiety and depression, and I achieved it. Now I support other people to break free from their challenges and achieve the life they desire and deserve. “I wish I had done this years ago. From being in a very dark place, where I couldn’t see a way forward, my future looks exciting and positive to me now and I couldn’t have started this journey without Chris’ specialist, professional and unique approach to coaching.” “I cannot recommend Chris enough, I don’t know what would have happened if I hadn’t have found him. My son has great plans and ambitions, he seems determined and focused, which is amazing to see! If you have a son or daughter, who has lost their way and struggling to find a purpose and meaning, then you need Chris!” “Deciding to work with Chris has been a positive, life-changing decision for me, which I have thoroughly enjoyed. Working with a ‘life coach’ wasn’t a decision I ever thought I would make. I trusted my instincts and went for it – and I’m very glad I did.” Finally, it’s your turn… I’m here to listen to you, and as soon as we start our work together, my focus is on getting you out of overwhelm and into control in the shortest possible time, we achieve this in our first session. During your discreet, confidential and private coaching, you gain the freedom to speak without any guilt for how you think or feel, and this clarity provides us with the opportunity to define what is working for you, what you want to change and how you want to live your life. I’m here to support you, hold you accountable and most of all I’ve been where you are and know how you make it out. You have a decision to make: do what you’ve been doing (or worse, do nothing at all). You know where that will lead. Is that really where you want to go? Take a new action, and get a new result. Finally break free from stress, anxiety and depression. Which do you want for yourself?

The first and only thing in a whole year that got me putting one foot in front of the other again was the self-discovery 90 minutes’ session with Chris. After the sudden breakdown in my marriage, a year ago, there has been one blow after another. My life is unrecognisable from what it was. I found out my husband, who I had been together with for 14 years had nearly bankrupted us. We had to sell the beautiful family home we had worked so hard to own, take my sons out of the Independent school they loved and move to a whole new area. These events were stressful enough, but when my closest family then struggled to adjust to me separating with my husband and my relationships with these people started to breakdown, I was on a slippery slope to rock bottom. I began to struggle at work and eventually my body just said, “Enough!”. What happened next was what I can only describe as a frightening experience, a panic attack, which I considering myself a go-getting, positive person, never thought I would experience. The doctor said I was suffering from anxiety and prescribed me beta blockers. I knew, however, that medication alone, wouldn’t fix everything. I decided that I didn’t want to carry the burden of the past year’s experiences around with me and in all honesty, I didn’t know where to start. I felt completely paralysed, not being able to cope with everything I was trying to juggle. A good friend recommended Chris and I got in touch with him immediately. Chris was able to see me quickly, which was so important. He was like an emergency service for my mind. We met for a 90-minute session. Chris made me feel at ease immediately and he really is the least judgmental person, which leaves you free to be completely honest. He asked me the right kind of questions, that allowed us to establish where I was at and what the issues were. He helped me to decipher what the most urgent problems were and made me feel safe in putting those other juggling balls, temporarily to one side, so that I could start to pick myself up and take some first steps forward. It was more than just talking to someone who was not involved in my life…Chris provided me with effective and appropriate strategies, that felt manageable and would have the biggest impact in the short term. After the session, I felt like a weight had literally been lifted off my shoulders. My closest friend commented that I was a different person and for the first time in ages they saw a glimpse of a happier, independent and motivated person. Chris quickly followed up our meeting with an email that summarised my “homework” for the next 2 weeks. He gave me a toolkit of tasks, exercises and strategies that would help me to achieve the goals we had prioritised. I reread this email a number of times, over the next fortnight and each time it reassured me and helped me to stay focused. I was also encouraged to contact Chris by email or phone if I was feeling anxious, needed support or had any questions. I took Chris up on this and again, it was like A&E for my life. He responded quickly when I needed reassurance and support. This was the kind of support my friends and family couldn’t provide me with. It got me back on track and feeling positive. Having been through so much and because the session was so effective, I wanted to continue to work with Chris. At first, I struggled a little with investing in myself, but I knew that no matter how many pairs of shoes, spa days and chocolates I bought, they wouldn’t make these issues go away. It was time to claim my life back, stop carrying the baggage around with me and take steps towards a more fulfilling life and the authentic me. I am now working towards these goals with Chris. I wish I had done this years ago. From being in a very dark place, where I couldn’t see a way forward, my future looks exciting and positive to me now and I couldn’t have started this journey without Chris’ specialist, professional and unique approach to coaching.

I approached Chris and asked him if he could help my soon to be 21-year-old son, to find his way in life, to find a meaning and a purpose and the transformation has been truly incredible! My son left school at 16 to go college to study Music. He hated it and dropped out after the first term. The following year he went back to sit his A-Levels. He did well in the end but I had to drop him off at the Academy gates to make sure he went, his motivation and determination levels were very low. When it came to him sitting his exams, I had to drop him off as before but his teacher was waiting for him to make sure he went and sat the exams! He left with great results and was successful in his application at Uni. Once again to study music. Music was his only passion, he never went out, socialised, rarely left his bedroom and lived rather like a hamster! Active through the night whilst we were trying to sleep and in bed all day whilst we were out working. He quit Uni, no surprise, it wasn’t for him. He then spent the following 12-18 months doing nothing. Driving us mad as we worked hard whilst he laid in bed. I didn’t know what to do and I felt like there was no-one to ask or talk to. I had some personal coaching at work and one day the idea hit me… why didn’t I find someone to help coach my son! I spent hours looking for someone who had experience in coaching young adults and came across Chris! I emailed Chris with some background info and asked if he thought he could help my son. To my delight, Chris replied and confirmed he’d be delighted to, the rest is history! My son had a call with him, they clicked, met 6/7 times and within the space of approx 6-8 weeks my son had the confidence to apply for a full-time job and was successful! He’s now been working for almost 2 months and is like a totally different person! I cannot recommend Chris enough, I don’t know what would have happened if I hadn’t have found him. My son has great plans and ambitions, he seems determined and focused, which is amazing to see! If you have a son or daughter, who has lost their way and struggling to find a purpose and meaning, then you need Chris!!

Before commencing work with Chris I felt that my life had become stagnant and I was unable to move forwards. I knew I didn’t want what I had, but I was struggling to figure out what I did want! I was unhappy with my career, my fitness levels and my home-life but I didn’t know where to start making changes to rectify any of this. I went to Chris’s free ‘taster’ session, not because I knew a lot about what he was going to talk about, but because I didn’t! I took the attitude that I had nothing to lose. It was the best decision I’ve made in a long time! The introduction session had made me aware that it was possible to identify and make the changes I required. I decided to build on what I had learned at that session by working one-to-one with Chris. During our work together, I was able to identify the changes I wanted to make and identify where I wanted to be in the future. We have worked to change my subconscious thinking, enabling me to stop self-limiting thoughts and realise my potential. I have been enabled to identify my goals for the short-term and the long-term. Each short-term goal achieved boosts my self-confidence and resolve to get where I want to be. Working with Chris has enabled me to move forward with my life, leaving behind the things that weren’t working for me and gaining a new momentum to make the changes to enable me to get what I want from life. I’m still me, but a much better, happier version of me! The most important thing that enabled me to work with Chris was his non-judgmental attitude. This enabled me, to be honest about the situation I am in and how I am feeling about things. Feeling safe to be honest without being judged has meant that we can address the real problems I am facing, rather than the things I selectively choose to tell him. I have had Chris’s positive support by e-mail or phone, should I choose to use it, between our face-to-face sessions. At times it has been hard, but I have never felt overwhelmed or despondent about things. I now know and believe that I can make the changes to get what I want, and that’s a totally new experience for me. Chris’s honesty with me has enabled me to see things from a different perspective. His interpretation of my actions and the discussion about reasons behind those actions has been enlightening and has enabled me to work to change the destructive patterns of behaviour and self-limiting thoughts I hadn’t even realised I had! Deciding to work with Chris has been a positive, life-changing decision for me, which I have thoroughly enjoyed. Working with a ‘life coach’ wasn’t a decision I ever thought I would make. I trusted my instincts and went for it – and I’m very glad I did.
