HELLO 

I'm Chris and after spending over 12 years following the "traditional" path up the career ladder, I decided, like a lot of others out there after COVID-19 that I wanted to find a more fulfilling career. With 30 years left to work, surely there was more to work than the office 9-5? 

So, frustrated by the slow pace of change and reaching my limit hearing yet another corporate cliche "we need to dehydrate this project" (yes someone said that to me) I decided to chart my own path and use my big picture thinking and questioning nature to help individuals and businesses who are ready for real change to achieve their goals. Whatever that is for them!

With a knack for asking the right question, a genuine curiosity to listen and a straight talking Yorkshire style I found my passion. I now coach individuals and businesses to get where they want to be. Faster!

Coaching. 
Mentoring. 
Therapy?

I'm a coach, what does that mean?

What actually is coaching? It's a 60/90 minute 1 to 1 conversation together we’ll explore your current reality and practical options for you to move forward so that you can achieve your goal and make a change. You'll have more clarity, feel more equipped and leave empowered to make a change.

It's completely different to therapy or mentoring.

Therapy is a journey of the past. Coaching helps you to understand where you’re at now and transforms it into a future that’s just right for you. Unlike a counsellor or therapist, a coach will help you focus on what’s happening right now, rather than repeat a story from the past.

Mentoring is a conversation with an expert in a specific industry or profession. They are there to share their expertise, advice, and personal opinion with you. Unlike a mentor, coaches are trained to help you find your own answers, they will never tell you what to do.
