Welcome to Write Your Story NLP
"to begin, begin" William Wordsworth
When I was 27, I was at a crossroads. With the breakdown of a relationship, I had to move out of the home I shared with my 6 year old daughter.
I had a growing sense of disillusionment with my professional career as a solicitor and a feeling that I was living someone else’s definition of my life.
I was also raising my daughter to follow her dreams and be whomever she wanted yet I wasn't following my own advice.
It reached a point where it became clear that I had a decision to make, to continue to live someone else's definition of what my life 'should' be (and I had hundreds of perfectly reasonable excuses justifying why this had to be the case), or I could embrace my fears, step out of my comfort zone and social circles, and go after the life I felt I am here to live.
In the words of renowned American self-help author and motivational speaker Wayne Dwyer, I decided I would not let my time pass with my music still in me.
It was at this time that I encountered the world of coaching and Neuro-Linguistic Programming ("NLP"), and I also read a book called the Alchemist.
Since then, I have qualified as a Life and Behavioural coach (IPPS) and a NLP™ Master Practitioner (accredited with the Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming™).
I have set up my own coaching business and I have been gifted with the opportunity to work with a significant number of clients to help them achieve their personal and professional goals. I have also had the opportunity to speak to University and School Students and host a number of workshops, all of which I find massively life affirming.
I have also pursued my life long dream of music, which I had hidden from the world as I never thought I was talented enough to do anything with it. I am now in a band and have played at some of the best festivals and venues in the country (Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, the Academy and Whelans to name a few).
Most importantly, my daughter sees her Dad living by his actions, not just his words and embracing fears to live a life that is true to him. Through this, she learns to do the same. This is a picture of my daughter and I just after she played her own songs as our supporting act at the release of our first single.
WORK WITH ME
My passion for Coaching and Neuro Linguistic Programming ("NLP") is borne out of the profound impact it has had in my life.
Coaching and NLP has empowered me to face my fears and pursue my passions, to set up a successful coaching business and to follow my life long dream of making music. It has given me the opportunity to transform my negative self-talk to my wisest friend, so that approval and support can come from within. It has equipped me with a toolkit of resources and techniques to navigate significant challenges in my life and perhaps most importantly, it has provided me with a deep sense of clarity and acceptance of who I am and who I want to be.
We are living in an exciting time, a time in which we are asking questions of what we want in this life, regardless of what age we are. We are no longer accepting the "status quo" or what previously might have held us back. We are demanding a better balance in our lives and our definition of "success' is changing.
A realisation is blossoming amongst us that investing in the quality of our lives and our mental health is one of, if not the, most important thing we can do.
My approach incorporates a number of sources: Coaching, NLP, mindfulness, visualisation, hypnosis and the lessons I have learned through my own personal and professional experiences.
I am passionate about the empowerment, personal growth and happiness of people. My purpose is to facilitate the journey of each person, to achieve immediate results and to ensure they feel;

Personal development plan
In a world where people are constantly looking for more, the added value that can be offered by workplaces, schools and universities not only distinguishes them from competitors but shows an investment in the employees and students which boosts morale and personal development leading to a happier and more sustainable environment.
I offer a personal development programme to students and employees to foster their own growth, improve their communication and leadership skills, and to empower them to fulfil their potential.
