I offer 1:1 coaching sessions to help you think about your current life situation and identify what your goals are and what is important to you. We will explore areas of your life such as work/education, leisure, relationships, personal growth and health to identify where you’re at and which direction you want to take from here – then identify the steps you can take to get where you want to be. Please get in touch to discuss your individual needs.
