Whether your goal is to achieve a lifelong ambition, to build a business, achieve financial independence or just become who you really want to be, my passion is helping you to get there.

I have helped athletes to get to world-class level, I have helped academics to become respected leaders in their field. I have helped thousands of people young and old to learn new languages and skills, and I have helped people to write and publish books. I have also had the pleasure of mentoring leaders from some of the biggest companies in Britain and Europe.

One thing I have learned along the way is that the outcome of your journey depends on one thing and one thing alone – motivation. And when you need it more than ever, that magic ingredient can be the hardest of things to find.

Sometimes, you need a little help to focus your vision, define your goals and keep you on the path to achieving them. This is what drove me to become a CMI Level 5 Certified Coach & Mentor, as well as becoming an Accredited Life Coach. Since completing these qualifications in 2016, I have continued my learning with a variety of additional courses.

It is also why, as a coach, writer and journalist, I was inspired to create Motiv8.me Magazine, a digital platform for people at every stage of their personal journey.
