Happy Campers....

"Lee has been an incredible mentor, coach & friend to me for almost 6 months now and I have no intention of stopping our sessions. He has a deep, spiritual wisdom which he has seemingly settled into after many years of navigating various life experiences (good, bad & ugly). Lee carries an extensive toolkit containing exercises, techniques and advice which he draws upon when the tool is right for the job and the timing of its use is appropriate.

A great thing about working with Lee is his deep connection to himself - sessions don't tend to be planned and instead Lee uses his intuition to work with whatever is coming up in the moment, for me this means that I always get value out of the sessions.

One more thing - I don't think I've ever felt like there's anything I CAN'T say to Lee. Our conversations are held in a space where anything and everything is on the table. There's a deep acceptance, compassion and appreciation on both sides. It's a pleasure to connect and discuss life's big topics regularly.

I found myself in what I would probably classify as a 'Dark Night of the Soul' period in my life following some major life changes. I sought out a coach that could help guide me through an extremely challenging time in my life and I am so so grateful that I found Lee. I'm still not out of the woods entirely but I'm well on my way and Lee has been an integral part of the journey.

OK, one more thing - If you want to work with a down-to-earth coach who appreciates the complexities & difficulties of modern living, the nuances & contradictions of life that we all wrestle with and who also has a particular interest in authenticity, eastern wisdom and walking a path that is 100% YOU - Lee is your guy." -- Google 5* Review

"I contacted Lee six months ago as I was about to make a big choice to leave my job and change my life. I wanted help from someone who was not invested in my life in any way, and thus could objectively support and challenge me as I powered through that change. I hadn’t expected to enjoy the process quite so much, or to get from Lee so much more than I’d bargained for. Do not be fooled into thinking that coaching with Lee will simply examine the practical mechanics of your life. He has got me to deeply scrutinise the how, the what, and the why of who I am with searing yet playful courage and honesty. With lightness, a sprinkling of humour, infectious enthusiasm, and beautiful spirituality, Lee creates a clear, quiet space that accepts and queries what you will unpack together. His incisiveness has often left me gasping/laughing at the eye-opening revelations about myself. I am learning to become who I am and fully inhabit an amazing life for myself, and I am deeply grateful & happy that I chose to invest in this work." Consultant & Entreprenuer, Bristol

"Thank you for the wonderful session today. I really feel such important shifts in my life, your guidance and support have been phenomenal." Unhappy wife, London

"Lee is a perceptive and non-judgemental listener with the ability to understand quickly and easily the core issues that need to be addressed. His techniques enable one to really look inside oneself and remove blockers that prevent progress. Powerful stuff!" Solicitor, Finchley

"My thankyou was heartfelt Lee. Our work together has helped me to think differently and get me through a very difficult period in my life. Thank you. You have a special gift. Speak soon." Food Entrepreneur, Hertford

"When I first met with lee I did not really know what to expect. I had lots of questions about life in general and was struggling with some issues. After several sessions I now feel more clarity and focus. The work is not done yet but I look forward to our sessions together with excitement. Lee is a good listener and will choose his replys to questions wisely helping you to gain another perspective. I would defiantly recommend to anyone who has the courage to look for more from life. Thanks lee." Electrician, North London

"I knew immediately that I had found someone with a depth of wisdom, warmth and compassion who would not hesitate to put the challenging questions but who would also be there to encourage and support me. I am now able to see the path ahead with much greater clarity and I KNOW it's the right one!" Private School Head Teacher, London Docklands

"Coaching helps you learn about yourself and feel the better for it, Lee is highly professional and always puts your best interests first." Business Analyst, Notting Hill

"I am so glad I am doing this. I am so glad I am doing this with you. I am so proud of myself that I am taking action." Global IT Manager, Melbourne, Australia
"So Lee, I say a big thank you for our time together. I really have enjoyed it and you have given me plenty to think about over the past few months. In many ways I believe you helped steer me towards realising what it is that I am meant to be doing. You're an incrediby interesting person and I have learnt a lot from your outlook - it has been refreshing to say the least!" Lawyer, Moorgate

"I am enormously grateful for the way in which you have helped me to break through some of the blockages in my life and for the sound advice you have provided through a challenging yet exciting period. I also hope to see you at the opening of my bar next year! " Investment Banker, City

"Thanks for your great support! It is helpful and skilful. Look forward - as ever - to next meeting." Health services entrepreneur, East London

"Thank you for all your help and support over the last few months it has been great to work with you" NHS Trust Senior Executive, Hertfordshire

"The most valuable thing you have given me is perspective - a realisation that wellbeing comprises simultaneously satisfying a number of needs, and there is really no point over-focussing. Trite of course, and I knew that already, but you have really deepened my understanding of this truth. But the best thing of all: the belief that anything is possible. We are limited only by our own minds. Fantastic!" Senior Lawfirm Partner, Westminster

"'I found Lee a joy to work with, gently leading you down a fascinating path of self-discovery towards an answer or solution you were looking for, but may not have found on your own. I can recommend him highly." Hedge Fund Manager, Chelsea

"I think I was very fortunate to try your web-site first when I was looking for a life coach. I have found your guidance to be objective and uncomplicated, and you have always provided me with much needed focus. You look as though you have been eating light bulbs!" IT Professional, London Docklands

"As at now, about six months after engaging in this coaching process, I feel good, and that I have made amazing progress in discovering/digging out who I am. The validation I get out of work is being replaced by the joy of honouring my values – I get more and more fulfilled by the joy of being a loving and caring, person." VP Marketing and Development, North London

"I got some quality time to relax and think about everything... I'm still really excited about all the work we did last year." Technology Entrepreneur, Islington

"Working with Lee helped me focus where I want to go next in my life. The programme is well structured and allows achieving goals within the time frame. Lee is engaging and obviously enjoys what he is doing. Great stuff!" Oncology Consultant, Muswell Hill

"I contacted Lee when I realised the changes I needed in my life and myself were too daunting to manage on my own. Lee helped me through a journey of self discovery. I felt empowered all the way in the knowledge that Lee wasn't judging me or finding answers for me. I have resurfaced 'the real me' that had been hidden for years and am facing the new year full of ambition and determination." Management Consultant, St. Albans

"I felt very confused about which direction to take in life. Lee didn't tell me what the right answer was. What he did was to teach me the tools to realise what the possibilities were for me and then focus on the ones which really suited me. Thanks" Dental Surgeon, Farringdon

"When I first got in touch with you I was just looking for some help in getting promoted and making the best of a career I wasn't really happy with. You've helped me understand what it is I truly value in life, to rediscover my creativity and to start to believe that, instead of making the best of a joyless career, I can change direction and realise my dreams. It's been brilliant working with you". Partner Big 5 Consultancy, City of London

A day in the life of Great Life Coach

People often ask me about my work. What do you actually do?! What kind of people do you work with?

I realise my work is unusual. Walking into all manner of situations through a typical work day. I always feel privileged in my work, working deeply and honestly with people. The challenges are varied, but in each case I support people to untangle themselves and get authentic. I visit many clients in a week at various locations around the city. I walk between appointments wherever possible. I'm a bit of a rambling man, typically walking around London for 7 - 10 miles a day! I felt value in sharing with you a typical day of life coaching. I hope you find it interesting.

The Investment Banker, Canary Wharf

My workday started as I hopped the train to Canary Wharf to meet my first client. Sara, a 32yo Asian woman who has been working in an investment bank for the past twelve years. This was to be our fifth session and it was an emotional one. Amidst a flood of tears she confessed that she had now realised that she had been on the wrong path since leaving school. Her parents had nudged her towards banking as a safe option. She vocally hated her job and her health was suffering. Truly, there was nothing "safe" about Sara's predicament. It was no way to live a life full of potential. It had taken several sessions to get her to admit that she'd been climbing the wrong ladder. The nut was at last cracked and over the next few weeks our coaching focus would shift to bring her onto a more authentic vocational path.

My session with Sara took a lot of presence and energy, so I seized the opportunity to do some gentle breath-work to come back to my own centre in readiness for my next client. This was to be a telephone client. So I headed west on the Jubilee line to Green Park. I entered the park and found my favourite Lime tree. I laid down and took in the majesty of her giant branches. I connected with the 400 years that she had stood there presiding over the woes of generations of Londoners. 

The Divorcing Parisian

My telephone session started, this time with Clo, a wealthy client living in Paris. She had recently come out of a long term relationship. Over previous sessions we had identified the in-healthiness of the relationship and the importance of keeping clear boundaries. I had anticipated that today we would work on her plans for her new life. But No! Coaching sessions are dynamic and anything but predictable. Today's session became a colossal dumping of all her uncertainties as to whether she had done the right thing. What about money? How could she find a new man? Did she ever really love him? Her liquid feminine nature flowed. I held the space and was eventually able to bring her around to exploring the opportunity of healing using a process that facilitated forgiveness, thankfulness and letting go. I felt her resilience return and she felt ready to move into her week. I left Clo with some powerful meditations to experiment with over the following days.

Lunch time! Sushi from Itsu was followed by a meditative nap in the park. My iPhone chimed and it was time to make my way across Hyde park to my next session at a hotel in Kensington.

The Young Entrepreneur

My next client Adam was a young entrepreneur. He was setting up an innovative e-business. Our sessions tended to oscillate between exploring entrepreneurial start-up challenges and the meaning of life. I always love going deep into "what it means to be alive" dialogues, so I was looking forwards to see what he wanted to explore today. After a discussion about cloud formations and the genius and passing of Prince, our session started.

A series of life events had unfolded for him over the past few weeks; an investor had pulled out, his girlfriend had quit her job and he was seriously doubting the idea at the core of his business. He had entered a crisis of self belief and he could feel his otherwise potent passion slipping away. We unpacked his feelings from various angles and it became obvious that the principal issue was that he was exhausted. Nothing particularly mystical, we agreed that the first course of action over the next month was to really look after himself! Great nutrition, exercise, more sleep and a regular meditation practice for starters. I also suggested that he explore 5-Rhythms dance as a way of loosening up. I looked forward to see how he was in a few weeks time.

The Finance Director

I jumped a Central Line train back to the city for my final client. He was a Finance Director in a large multi-national. We had worked together for several months to explore whether he should renew his contract or quit the city and go renovate houses in Yorkshire. This was an important session as it was the day before an important board meeting.

I rang the bell at the apartment where he shacks up during the week. I was aware that he'd been hiking in the Alps since we last met, so our opening connections were an exchange of mountain stories. Our session started. He appeared relaxed and at ease. I hadn't seen him that way for months. He disclosed that he was happy with the decision he had arrived at in our prior session. He was going to quit his job. I had witnessed, explored and prodded for months. He was very mind-lead and my guidance was to follow the heart. My only bias was that he should live the next phase of his life authentically. His decision felt universally supported. Excitement soon gave way to an earnest discussion of departure protocols that would best serve his needs without burning bridges. I could feel his gratitude as I left.

A brisk walk up to Liverpool Street and I was soon on the train back to the deep countryside for some stillness and gorgeous food. As I arrived home I could smell wood smoke loitering in the air, it was a chilly April evening.

I took a moment to enjoy the stars and a full moon. It was soon time to hit the hay, in readiness for another day of life coaching.

"Since our meeting of Friday I have been feeling good, there has been a positive release within me. I have been embracing my relationships with friends and family in these past days with such enthusiasm. It's startling! I can feel a constant smile on my lips. I'm really feeling the James Brown "Good". Don't laugh at my way of expression, but that is what I'm experiencing. Strangely I feel like I have you sitting on my shoulder whispering repeatedly "What do you value?" You have made me realise that I value a hell of lot, more than what I wrote down on Friday. I THANK YOU for this!!" Executive, Italy.

google 5star coach1- Thank you very much for your good work Lee. Thanks to our sessions I've been able to design a good plan for my next project. It's been lovely to be able to talk to you without being judged, really openly.
google 5star coach2- Lee truly guided me on to the right path. I was stuck, frustrated, unsure of where to turn. I saw Lee once a month for just over a year, and i can honestly say this was the best decision i've ever made. Thank you again Lee!
google 5star coach3- I am so thankful for my time with Lee, he is so kind and full of positive energy. Lee helped me through a difficult transitional period in my life and acted as a guide, shedding light on what I really wanted and gave me a new perspective on how to gain it. His energy, inspirational attitude and deep care for others is uplifting and contagious but what's more is that he's completely authentic and genuine, making him an incredible Life Coach.
google 5star coach4- Lee is an amazing life coach with wisdom and strength.  The little time spent with lee has had a great impact on my life without doubt !  When balance isn't in your life then lee is the man to help you find this.  He is a strong hand to hold when when life is uncertain and fear holds you back!
google 5star coach6- I was feeling a bit stuck in life and decided to do some life coaching.  Lee was superb.  He helped me identify where I want to be, why I'm not there at the moment, and how to get myself going in the right direction.  Life has already changed considerably since working with him.  A lovely man and a great coach!
google 5star coach7- I met Lee at a point in my life when I was dealing with significant change.  I needed someone who could help me approach my choices in a systematic and holistic way, and he has done that.  He has an approach that is different and fresh, and an ability to adapt that style to meet my particular needs.  He has helped me confront many issues and get onto a better life path.
google 5star coach8- I have been working with Lee for over 3 years. I had reached a particular crossroads in life and working with him has enabled me to reach a good place. The coaching has made such a positive difference. Left to my own devices I might have advanced my self-knowledge a little but nothing to the degree of insight that I have been able to develop with Lee. In fact, without such insight, I don't know which direction my life might now be taking. Now I do, and the journey has been wonderful. Looking back I can say that this has been the best thing I have spent money on because it has been an investment in myself.
google 5star coach9- I contacted Lee six months ago as I was about to make a big choice to leave my job and change my life. I wanted help from someone who was not invested in my life in any way, and thus could objectively support and challenge me as I powered through that change. I hadn’t expected to enjoy the process quite so much, or to get from Lee so much more than I’d bargained for. Do not be fooled into thinking that coaching with Lee will simply examine the practical mechanics of your life.

With lightness, a sprinkling of humour, infectious enthusiasm, and beautiful spirituality, Lee creates a clear, quiet space that accepts and queries what you will unpack together. His incisiveness has often left me gasping/laughing/both at the eye-opening revelations about myself. I am learning to become who I am and fully inhabit an amazing life for myself, and I am deeply grateful & happy that I chose to invest in this work.
google 5star coach10- I have been working with Lee for a number of months now, and his support has been very important to me, as I attempt to rationalise recent life experiences and move forward to a happier, positive future. I look forward to our sessions and under his guidance have explored why I have felt unhappy in the past, and identify what I must do to become the person I want to be. Lee is hugely experienced and very empathetic, but he will also tell you some home truths when needed. Everyone at a crossroads in their life could benefit from his approach. He comes highly recommended!
google 5star coach11- I decided to start the life coaching sessions with Lee when I moved to London earlier last year. I seemed to have a perfect life but I know it's not what I wanted. Lee helped me to make smarter decisions when facing the crossroad, and to look inside myself to live the life I really wanted. I would recommend him to everyone who wants to make a change and live the life to the fullest.Thank you Lee!
google 5star coach13- Lee is a wise and thoughtful person to speak with and has some great tips on how to really find your passion in life. I really enjoyed his company and found his words a great guide for helping me to find my true and best path in life.
google 5star coach14- I decided to have Life Coaching with Lee last year as I felt I had hit a crossroads.  Although I knew I had the all the answers myself, I needed some direction to help me pull the answers from within! Lee started with some simple exercises to get me thinking about what my true 'Rachelness' wanted from life and then we took it from there.  During this journey, I'll be honest I did resent Lee on occasion, but this was because he was making me face my insecurities and that can be uncomfortable (really it was myself I was resenting).  Lee makes it very easy for you to talk openly about how the process is making you feel and is an extremely kind man.  I have made some big changes since last year, I've moved to the seaside, found a partner who loves the outdoors as much as me and sorted out some long standing health issues! I feel GREAT! Thank you Lee you helped me release my inner self :)
google 5star coach12- I've worked with Lee for the last two months in an effort to bring some harmony back to my personal and professional life. Lee's background in business, as well as his spiritual side has helped greatly with practical advice while also providing a framework to re-focus my energy on the things in life that are important to me...I'm looking forward to continuing to build on the success so far - well worth the investment!
google 5star coach15- Lee is a very special and talented individual who I am really pleased to have 'worked' with. I decided to have life coaching as I felt I was at an important age to be making some directional choices for my career - I had dabbled in a second career (my own business) on and off for a couple of years but just couldn't decide if I should take the full plunge into this career choice or not. Working with Lee, we set about finding out what my true values are and how this career choice might (or might not) serve them. Of course, along the way I learnt much much more than this. I can say with absolute certainty this work was one of the most important investments of my time and money in my grand old 28 years of life. Lee is not a magician and you need to dedicate time and energy into 'homework' if you're serious about self-realisation, Lee can guide you but it's you that has to do the work. I was very very busy throughout the most part of our time together but part of the magic of coaching is that you become answerable to somebody else and you have set deadlines (which you'll set yourself). Often when I look back at my coaching I realise that there's never a 'good time' for life coaching, you need to MAKE time before you LOSE time. Like all good enablers, Lee worked to make himself eventually redundant to me (for now) and I've come away with a clear career direction and a better understanding of myself. I'm on a long old mountain climb to fulfilling my business dream but I'm already 10 times higher up the mountain than I would have been without my coaching with Lee. It's not easier work but I now know I'm choosing the correct path and I'm super confident I'll get there or die trying!
google 5star coach2- Lee helped me when I was facing a true crisis of spirit. There are certain instances from our coaching sessions which will forever be engrained as a positive marker in my mind- serving me in recalling the importance of following the path. Thank you Lee.
google 5star coach14- Thanks to Lee's methods I made some decitions that brought me to a healthier, happier and more relaxing place. I could make a decition that it was dificult for me to make and I did it feeling very confident and with the tranquility that everything will be fine. I could see what is good for me, what my needs are and I am happy to be able to make my own decitions. Lee guides you towards those things that make you feel better. You get to know yourself very deeply. It is a very interesting process and I want more of it. :) Thanks to Lee I know now what is the mountain that I want to climb and that It is important to expres oneself on time according to your feelings and thoughts. Thank you!
google 5star coach11- I've been one of Lee's clients for about three years now and he's helped me make massive strides forward, changing a career that was draining my energy and helping to focus on what I love doing in life.  He's great fun and refreshing to work with (especially when you feel tired and trapped) but he's also good at tough love too!  Highly highly recommended!
google 5star coach8- I have been a life coach client of Lee for nearly two years and I love working with him. He has helped me to be the true me and move towards my ambition of living at peace with myself and everyone else. Wherever you are in your life journey, Lee can help you move forwards and upwards. All you need to take with you to your sessions is openess and willingness. I can't recommend him enough.
google 5star coach3- I came to Lee with a specific agenda. I knew I wasn't happy on the inside and I knew that I had wanted (and needed) to do things differently. Lee provided a thought provoking framework and path forward. Out of those thoughts great things have occurred. We then moved into a period of action which still hurtles forward today and in a direction I am totally rapt with. Lee is now a valuable and trusted member of my team. Don't think about it any longer - just try it for yourself.
