Happy Campers....

"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

"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.

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

"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

... and so on...

This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one: being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. (GB Shaw)

If you are unhappy
AND your unhappiness is limiting your life
AND you are ready to live a Passionate, Purposeful and Peacful life
THEN welcome to Great Life Coach, YOU are in the right place!

oak2Our mid-life is a clarifying time, a time for introspection, a time when we realise that we must establish meaning and purpose in our lives. We have grown, prospered and perhaps stagnated on the life foundation we laid over the last twenty years of our working lives and we now live off the bitter and sweet fruits of the choices we have made. Maybe you can feel an inner-knowingness that something needs to change. Maybe you don't know what to believe anymore, what to trust or who we are? What to change? Maybe its a big change or a few small ones. A career change, a relationship change, or its time to stop kidding ourselves? In our 40's our habitual rut can run deep and change may feel impossible.

SPARKLE DON'T FADE!

Adulthood comprises of many phases of being, each phase involves a shift of identity and the opportunity of a breakthrough into a larger self.

Is your Comfort Zone no longer Comfortable?

image by webtreatsFortified in the safety of our comfort-zone, many of us choose to ignore or numb the aspects ourselves that are urging us to make changes. We have shot for the stars and experienced much of what this beautiful world has to offer and probably wrestled with the ineffable aspects of our spirituality; for many though, unhappiness, depression, stress and imbalance permeate our lives. Maybe you feel just feel disconnected. Maybe you are in the a profound and troubling meltdown that comes in midlife when you perceive that your personal trajectory is no longer arcing reliably upward as it once did.

The Dalai Lama has this to say ... "...sacrifice your health in order to make money. Then you sacrifice money to recuperate your health. Then you are so anxious about the future that you don't enjoy the present: the result being that you do not live in the present or the future; you live as if you are never going to die, and then you die having never really lived." ... It doesn't have to be that way!

Unhappiness is the cue to embark on a new path; I can help you discover a path that is optimum for YOU. Over the next few months we can work together that take a very deep look at your life situation. We can identify the opportunities for change and the opportunities to assert boundaries. We can establish exactly what you would like the next decade to look like and we can deploy a solid plan to get you there.

As we enter and begin to face the second half of our lives, we all have the opportunity to face our mortality and this brings up existential issues. What have I accomplished in my life? What do I have yet to accomplish? What might I never accomplish? What will I leave behind? What kind of person have I been and what kind of person do I want to be? Does my life have meaning? Maybe its time to start a meditation practice. Perhaps a mid-life crisis appears.

"In the space between stories, we don't know how to navigate. The ways in which we once related to the world are no longer sufficient to the challenges we face, whether as individuals or as a species. Eventually, a new story is born to guide us, to provide meaning again, to give us a narrative structure that tells us who we are, where we are going, what is important, what is right, and how the world works. The new story follows and reinforces a new state of being." (C Eisenstein)

If not Now, When?

Success and applause are pleasantly reassuring, but alas they are often too brief and difficult to maintain. Yesterday you were irreplaceable; today someone else has taken your seat. And after every fantastic far away holiday, you always have to come back home, where your dream car, or what is left of it, awaits you. (Oldegberts)

Time is ticking. Life is beautiful. I can help you find Passion, Purpose and Peace in your life.

Now is the time to tune into your essence, discover your true self, design your perfect future and confidently change for the better. Get in Touch today and we can discuss my approach and the many ways that I can help you get back on track.
