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

"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.

"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 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

Life Coaching - How long does the life coaching relationship last?

There are no rules. You would be completely free to make decisions about how often you would want to meet based on how you feel and your individual circumstances. As a rule of thumb plan on at least 8 to 12 sessions, but I often do ad hoc sessions and even one-off sessions.

The life coaching relationship varies its intensity on an as needed basis; the frequency and duration of sessions changes with the needs of the program and your life-schedule. Flexibility is key to a good coaching program. Making time for your Self in a disciplined way, amidst a hectic life schedule is also necessary. You are probably time-poor, that's why I travel to you for our meetings... let your coach do the running around!

In the realm of customised life coaching there is no such thing as a typical relationship -- but typically, engagements last around 2 to 6 months.  Some folks choose to keep the relationship in place for a year and beyond! And I have had people get what they needed out of 1 session!

Most people meet me weekly, a few fortnightly, a few monthly and several enjoy a more ad-hoc approach; dipping in to our relationship on an as-needed basis as we progress. Some people have a small, finite, discreet goal that they use coaching for, some people arrive with a long shopping list of their needs, while others use coaching to effect a major life change; some people fundamentally change their lives having realised their life purpose, and others realise just how happy they are already.  Some people choose to change nothing except their awareness and intuition. The total length of time we work together will depend on the complexity of issues involved and your individual needs.

Most face to face sessions last around a hour.  Sometimes we have a double session for deeper work.  Some people find (and I agree) that the 60 minute session just is not long enough; and we usually enter into a more flexible pro rata arrangement.  Some people find an hour is too short ... and sometimes I disagree!  We discover a program that is effective and productive.

It is very difficult to say up front how much you will need to invest to get the results you are looking for; everybody is different.  You are free at anytime to stop the relationship if you feel it is not working.  And reciprocally, an important point is that I am careful to watch for clients who are no longer benefiting from our coaching relationship and thus would be better served by another coach or by another resource and, at that time, I will encourage my client to make that change. 

I am generally available to schedule coaching sessions between 6am and 9pm M-F.  I can also schedule weekend intensive sessions.

A one-off 2-hour Mini-Intensive session may also be appropriate for your life-challenge.
