Helping to make your personal vision a reality



Personal Development Coach

Whether it's building confidence or finding a new career path, I'll help make your personal vision a reality. I have 15 years' experience in journalism and of coaching parents of children with autism. Clients say my style is warm and empathic. My approach is to focus on you as a complete person - not just your current role, such as a job or parenthood. We will meet regularly by one-to-one video conferencing and I will support you, challenge you and provide you with a framework to make lasting change. We will explore how you view the world, what you truly value and any patterns of thinking that are holding you back. I use a variety of techniques, such as Transactional Analysis and Neuro-linguistic Programming, to help you bring out the best in yourself. Most of all, I believe unconditionally in my clients' power to improve their lives. Please contact me if you'd like a complimentary trial session.


“Coaching with Joel has been one of the most positive and powerful experiences in my life so far. From my first point of contact, Joel made it very easy for me to talk to him and to trust him, with absolutely anything and everything. We worked through very simple exercises, which enabled me to have a clear vision of why I react the way I do. What may have seemed like a negative, suddenly became a positive!"
