a new route
to freedom from
stress, anxiety, and depression
From personal experience, Life Coach Chris Dudley understands mental health challenges and can identify with the following…
Being ‘successfully depressed’ presents additional challenges:
My clients are often driven by perfection and pleasing people:
Studies suggest 30% of entrepreneurs identify as having experienced depression and a further 27% identify as experiencing anxiety.
That’s marginally higher than the average 1 in 4 adults in the UK who experience a mental health problem each year. I believe we achieve what we achieve not in spite of but because of these mental health challenges, which are often the fuel for building our success. Yet when we arrive and often surpass our goals we are left feeling empty and exhausted by the battle against ourselves which it took to get us here. The work you’ve put in was meant to make you feel happier and it hasn’t.
If you’re suffering, then this message is just for you…
If you ignore it, it just gets worse.
What most people do when faced with stress, anxiety or depression is wait until it gets so bad they can’t see a way out, they take medication to alleviate the symptoms, or they wait for treatment to discuss the past and how they got here. And for most people, none of that works.
At last, there’s some good news, I found a solution. I recognise this isn’t going to be easy, but it isn’t impossible.
I discovered life coaching having experienced stress, anxiety, and depression in my teenage years and throughout my twenties, having tried all the usual routes to deal with these challenges.
I had build and was maintaining a successful career in finance, gaining recognition, promotions, and rewards, and I was a high valued and respected member of the leadership team. At the same time, I was studying for multiple HR, Training and Coaching qualifications.
Behind closed doors, I was on anti-depressants, and more medication to take the edge off my OCD. I had a series of counselling sessions and now understood why I was unhappy.
The problem was… I still felt depressed and I was still living in the sterile environment I’d built for myself, and no-one could tell me how to beat it. I knew there had to be another way to overcome my challenges and that’s when I discovered life coaching.
I have a unique perspective on mental health, understanding it from the inside out, and creating the following results with clients.
With over 1000 hours of face-to-face paid coaching, I support you to break free from your challenges and achieve the life you desire and deserve.
Since working with Chris, I can honestly say I am a different person. My confidence has soared and my life has definitely changed for the better.
Meeting Chris was the best thing that could have happened to me. My life was at a real low. Chris rescued me and worked with me to reach this positive aspect of my life, and focus on the goals ahead in a much more confident approach.
Chris is one of those people in life that you meet who has the ability to instantly make you feel at ease and with whom you want to engage with.
I cannot recommend Chris enough for anyone considering having life coaching.

book your free Discovery Call
I start my work with all my clients by first having a Discovery Call.
This discreet, confidential, and private call is an opportunity to review how you would like coaching to impact your life. We’ll discuss the changes you want to make and the goals you wants to achieve. You’ll gain a greater understanding of the role of coaching and be in the best position to make a decision about using coaching as the solution to achieve the life you desire and deserve.
It’s a 30-minute individual coaching session via Skype or telephone and I offer flexible session times, including evenings and weekends. After the call, I provide a recommendation report and proposal and where appropriate, an invitation to start coaching with me.
