I am a very experienced life coach, practicing in London as a mentor and coach since 2001. My coaching talents have evolved from the confluence of two life journeys, being both a dynamic entrepreneur as well as a highly attuned intuitive. I draw on both of these sources when working with my coaching clients and people tell me that I am highly effective. Today, based in central London, I am running a thriving Life Coaching practice that was established to provide you a premium life coaching service. With alacrity, I partner with intelligent, successful people who want to excel at their passion, gifts and unique talents. My clients include CEOs, entrepreneurs, executives, lawyers, directors, managers, professionals, freelancers, creative people and people who are not aware of what they are here for.

Entrepreneur - Leader, Marketeer and Technologist

Experience, Enthusiasm, Energy, Excellence - The first journey, that of a multifaceted entrepreneur, started at an early age and resulted in my creating and growing several exciting technology and media companies. I spent extensive time in both the United States and the UK wielding my leadership skills, creativity, passion, pioneering spirit and a razor mind. I have been involved in many internet and interactive publishing initiatives that have sought to create wealth in an eclectic array of subject domains and industry sectors, including movies, edutainment, stock option trading, medical, software, health, security, books, construction, adventure games, personal finance, insurance and virtual reality. During the dotcom moment, I built an e-commerce solutions company over 20 months to become one of Europe's leading Internet integrators which resulted in a significant stock exchange floatation. I continue to be active with several entrepreneurial driven companies.

The second path has been there for me all my life and is the journey of discovery of the intuitive self. Over the past several years significant shifts and chapter changes in my own life required that I dig deep for consummate self belief and follow through. Taking cues from daring, inspiring and insightful people and texts, I discovered a Lee deep inside me who appeared to have uncanny insight into my reality, an innate purpose and answers to all my questions. What an awesome feeling. Developing this skilful art of perception and attaining a certain trust has taken time. Now, with resolve, I see that if we live in alignment with our inner truths, life is higher quality, more harmonious with one and all and quite simply happier. My journey continues...


For me Life coaching is not a job, but a fulfilling way of self-expression that allows me to manifest the love I feel for who I am.

Lee has synthesized the best from entrepreneurship, human development, business, communications, mentoring, spirituality, yoga and coaching to help individuals and organizations find and live their passion. Using a safe and supportive foundation of trust, freedom of expression and commitment, I always work to help you explore your inner being, to regain balance in your personal and working life and to align with your true values and fullest potential. Using a stimulating face-to-face, phone support and email program customised to fit your current intuitive development needs, my coaching focuses on your inner guidance, purpose, skills, beliefs, techniques and processes necessary to become utterly aware of the authentic You..


Experienced Life Coach

Life Coaching - What Type of Person?

Life coaching is effective for well-functioning, outwardly successful (perhaps inwardly empty) men and women, partnered or single, aged 20 - 55 who are ready and willing to change their lives.

My clients do not tend to be celebrities or big-shots (though even they are only human and are most welcome!). My natural approach to Life Coaching is effective for responsible, intelligent, motivated and successful people.

With alacrity, I partner with intelligent, successful people who want to excel at their passion, gifts and unique talents. My clients include CEOs, entrepreneurs, executives, lawyers, directors, managers, professionals, freelancers, creative people and people who are not aware of what they are here for. I have personally been involved or exposed to many professions and businesses; it often it helps to have some insight as to how their career or industry works when coaching clients. Get in touch if you have an unusual business idea, I am always ready for new challenges!

Are you Coachable?

Yes, if...

You want to be responsible for your life.

You are intelligent, enthusiastic and committed to getting more out of life.

You realize that if you "Do what you have always done, you will get what you have always gotten."

You know that change will put you on the path of your dreams.

You are action-oriented about improving your life.

You are committed to being the best you can be, not just in one area of your life, but in your entire life.

Some of us are aware of the way that our authentic nature manifests in our lives – as a direct result of the challenges that arrive on a daily basis; while others wander through their lives, oblivious.

Experienced Coach -- Some typical Life Coaching assignments

So what do people use a life coach for? We are all pilgrims. Have you ever stopped to think… Where am I on my journey?

We all awaken to different aspects of ourselves at different times in our lives. The following scenarios outline some of the types of life-coaching engagements that I have worked on (modified for confidentiality). You can see how clients are at different stages of their unique journey. In each case I was able to align with, and then work as a catalyst for my client; helping them find their own answers so that they could move onto the next phase of their unfolding life-journey, comfortably. My customised work in all cases took place at a spiritual, revealing, nurturing, supporting, purposeful, intuitive, strategic, realistic and loving level of discovery and self empowerment. Perhaps you can see yourself in the following examples? It is not important. Every one of these assignments is about change. More of something, less of something. I can help you make changes, if you are ready.

Experienced Coach -- People from all around the world

England is a beautifully cosmopolitan place to live. Many world travellers and relocated workers wash up in the UK. Often the life-situation that arises when we find ourselves out of our usual comfortable environ gets us to re-evaluate what we are doing with our lives.

Travellers, Relocations, Immigrants, Foreigners, Visitors and Citizens of Planet Earth

When we take up the challenge of a journey away from our homelands, we become our own hero and we tend to be more attuned to the way that life unfolds out of the present, creating paths, options, opportunities and lessons for us on-the-fly. Travelling is so often one of the freest and exciting times of our life. It also reveals to us that we have a will, our own will. We get to experiment with our will to make choices for ourselves both in the micro-sense – shall I go to that bar again tonight, and in the macro-sense – shall I settle down in this country, establish my career and make the next phase of my life here? Sometimes the latter becomes overwhelming and the help of a lifecoach can profoundly help you establish the right choices to make (for you).

I often work with folks from other countries and have helped people unravel the following sorts of life-challenges.

Shall I stay in the UK?
relocating to the UK and starting a new life
Shall I marry my beau and settle and have 8 kids?
Shall I extend my trip?
Shall I go back home… and then what?
How do I reconcile my home-sickness?
My husband was relocated and I need a life here!
How do I quit the bar and party scene (get a life!)
How do I juggle being a bohemian and an executive?
What is the right career path for me, I can’t temp for ever?
My travels have made me spiritually aware of myself, how do I embody that gift into a working life?
I have worked with Americans, Australians, Austrians, South Africans, Canadians , Egyptian, French, German, Polish, Italian, Kiwis, Dutch, Greek, Sri Lankans, Greeks, Germans, Austrians, Swiss, Scots, Irish and Yorkshiremen to name a few. If you are a guest to the UK, feeling uncertain, lost, stuck in a fog or in need of some supported strategic thinking get in touch!

If you live outside the UK, I also offer Telephone based coaching worldwide.
