Do you feel you…

  • achieved your goals but now they’re not enough and you’re still not happy or content
  • should be happy with what you have but are constantly craving more
  • have not yet achieved your potential or don’t know what it is
  • have so much more to give, but you’re not sure what or how
  • still hold yourself back, and you don’t know why
  • find ways to undermine your success and feel others are less capable than you but seem to achieve more
  • the things you do to make yourself feel better are making you feel worse

Do you need someone…

  • who truly listens when you speak to them
  • with whom you can share your secret relationship with anxiety and/or depression
  • who has been where you are and made it out
  • with whom you don’t need to feel guilty about how you think and feel
  • understands the additional challenges faced by being successful
  • to help you get out of overwhelm and back in control
  • who holds you accountable to achieving your goals

Do you want to…

  • have your mind work with you rather than against you
  • create a stable mindset and feel less impacted by ups and downs
  • manage times of change and uncertainty with confidence, and resilience
  • switch off from your career and engage with your personal life, without begrudging it or feeling guilty
  • feel engaged with the world around you, building and maintaining positive relationships
  • find your mission, commit to it and make it happen

PRICING STATEMENT – OCTOBER 2019


Having spent the last 4-years coaching full-time, I have had the pleasure of working with some fantastic individuals. Supporting them to overcome their challenges and achieve their goals.

I have spent the last months deeply reviewing my business, including my products, services, and price.

I have come to one realisation; I have not impacted as many people as I would’ve liked. I believe this is down to one reason… pricing.

By setting my prices higher than average and not competing with other similar services, such as psychotherapy and counselling, I have limited the people who can afford to work with me. I have also limited people who can access and experience coaching as a viable alternative to traditional talking therapies.

I have got lost in income and I am keen to return to impact.

Therefore, I have decided to make two major changes:

  1. Decrease my prices by a third, reducing my 90-minute Individual Coaching Sessions to £97 and my 3-month A Better Life Programme to £997. I will also honour this price point for organisations who are investing in coaching for their staff as an employee wellness benefit.
  2. Decrease my prices by half for those under 25, reducing my Individual Coaching Sessions to £75 and my 3-month A Better Life Programme to £747. These are a pocket of people who often reach out to me but for whom I have been unable to help due to my pricing being outside their budget or the budget of those keen to invest on their behalf. They are a generation I think can benefit most from being put on the right path now, rather than in another 10-years.

My aim is to see if I can increase my client numbers, maintain my income, and ultimately make an impact on more lives than I have to date.

This decision is not a marketing technique, people who know me know I dislike the smoke and mirrors often applied in the personal development industry.

This change comes from reconnecting with my values and the reason I wanted to coach.

I will be piloting this for the remainder of 2019 and will reassess my products, services, and pricing in January 2020.



“The first and only thing in a whole year that got me putting one foot in front of the other again was the 90 minutes’ session with Chris.”



“I approached Chris and asked him if he could help my soon to be 21-year-old son, to find his way in life, to find a meaning and a purpose and the transformation has been truly incredible!”



“After the session, I felt like a weight had literally been lifted off my shoulders. My closest friend commented that I was a different person and for the first time in ages they saw a glimpse of a happier, independent and motivated person.”

7 Mistakes made by the ‘Successfully Depressed’.


I’ve come to learn all the tools and techniques my clients will try before they meet with me. The ‘successfully depressed’ is the fond term I give to my clients who have achieved success in their careers and lives but are still experiencing mental health challenges. It’s instinctive for many, first to attempt to overcome their issues without external support, and particularly that of a third party. These ‘mistakes’ should only be deemed to be so if they have been tried and not worked. Equally, I have worked with enough clients to know most times these interventions have been attempted they have been unsuccessful… read more


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.

You can book a Discovery Call at a date and time convenient to you by clicking below and selecting ‘Discovery Call’ from the options.
