Why I'm the right person to help you

Here’s just a little bit about me and why I retrained to provide specialist relationship coaching and mentoring.

Before setting up my coaching practice in Nottingham, I lived an unhappy life going from one relationship to another.

Lacking self-confidence and self-belief I was desperate to be in a relationship. I thought this was what I needed to build a happy life.

I never felt good enough though and was anxious all the time.

 Constantly questioning myself and worrying.  Sabotaging relationships because deep down I didn’t feel I deserved to be happy. Feeling desperately lonely even when I was in a relationship. This went on for longer than I care to remember. 

Then I met someone who completely changed my life. 

I had a lightbulb moment.

They helped my realise that if I wasn’t happy with myself, how could I ever be happy in a relationship. 

I finally understood how my thoughts about myself impacted my relationship choices, my ability to get close to someone and how they created my deeply held negative core beliefs. 

This led to a journey of personal growth and self-discovery. 

I finally understood myself and was finally ready to start again. This time from a position of confidence and real self-belief. 

Life changed for me.

The support I had really helped me to adjust my thinking and really recognise my own value.

Because of this, I was able to adopt a confident new mindset, gained real self-awareness and clarity on what I wanted in life and who I wanted to be with.

Because of my own positive experiences with a trained professional, and the way in which it changed my life for the better, I undertook relationship coach training to go with my other qualifications and life experience.

I now provide specialist support to help you to feel happier. To let go of your past, develop a real confidence and find a relationship that is perfect for you. 

I’m now happier and more confident than I ever was, and married to my long term partner.

Sometimes we all need that helping hand to guide us towards being our best selves.

Specialist Relationship Coaching


Now, I live in Nottingham with my wife and Barney – he’s an 11 year old black Labrador who still thinks he’s a puppy! He can be quite cheeky, but is adorable. I love to be out in the garden, walking Barney or doing DIY (I’m not that great at it though-but I’ll give most things a go)

I also love practicing Tai Chi, Qigong and Wing Chun. They’re all brilliant for switching off from the stresses of the day and keeping me focused. 

I am a Certified Specialist Coach (a senior member of ACCPH) I also have qualifications in person centred counselling, a level 6 Diploma in Life coaching, and a diploma from the Association for Psychological therapies. This goes along with a successful track record in therapeutic services spanning over 23 years.

I have worked with so many different types of people to help them build stronger, happier relationships. From this I have a deep understanding of how your own unique circumstances and challenges can shape your own journey. I’m here to listen to you and help you out of that dark place that I too lived with for so long.
