UPDATE: Wednesday 23rd September, 2015 – this week, I attended a fantastic ‘Action For Happiness’ event which was for an amazing cause – to create a #HappierWorld. Please take a look at the short video here.

With each initial ‘coaching conversation’ I will be suggesting a voluntary donation (entirely voluntary), 100% of which I will be donating to this cause.

Dear Reader,

You may or may not have been following my adventures, having resigned earlier this June, which I have been documenting here on my blog.

Masters in Applied Positive Psychology & Coaching Psychology (MAPPCP)
After more than four years recruiting within the financial services industry, I resigned immediately after receiving my offer to study a Masters at the University of East London (UEL) – you can read the full story here. UEL is the first University in the world to offer a postgraduate programme in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology.

Positive psychology is the scientific study of human flourishing, and the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive. In other words, to make life better. Coaching psychology is the study of the psychological arts and sciences behind coaching. Coaching is a practice geared towards helping individuals make meaningful changes to their lives, with the view to ‘making life better’ for them.

Hence, positive psychology and coaching psychology complement one another wonderfully.

‘Coaching conversations’ (Sessions)
Over the last 2 months, I have spent time learning and applying my coaching skills through various resources (including the University resources themselves). (Though my Masters programme will lead to an official UK coaching accreditation, I wanted to get ahead of the game).

I would like the opportunity to apply my newly-acquired skills. As such, I would like to invite you to be a ‘coaching volunteer’ (coachee) and experience a coaching conversation (session), at no cost. Ideally, this would be conducted in person (this is where the most effective coaching conversations take place), however virtual sessions are also possible via Skype. To take me up on this, see below.

Want to find out more about coaching?
I have put together a brief ‘Coaching FAQ’ which you might find useful, available here.

If you are interested in having a ‘coaching conversation’ (session) at no cost, or would like to find out more, please email me at: You can also give me a call on: 07411 870800.

I am also happy to answer any questions that you might have about coaching, or indeed positive psychology, via email, phone or in person. Before posing your question, you might wish to read the Coaching FAQ –  details above.
