What's holding you back from success in your London business?

Are you unsure how to implement key business systems like management, automation & hiring?

Let’s use my extensive 30 years of business experience to help you upskill, boost your confidence and open up new ways to improve your business.

Are you unclear how to make a decision, or maybe your entire business vision?

Business coaching excels here. Through questions, you’ll gain insight and awareness that’ll help you find a path, and see your situation through a new lens.

Are struggling with marketing and sales?

It’s very common for businesses to find they have fewer leads or sales than they’d like, and this is doubly so in a competitive area like London. A combination of mentoring and coaching will uncover your your unique strengths and build a path that’s sustainable and achievable for you. 

Are you lacking a clear business growth strategy?

Planning your business growth and strategy is significantly easier with an experienced sounding-board who can offer experience and ask questions to help you gain awareness of your unique situation.

Let’s plan your success

Are you unproductive compared to your London peers, or do you have too much to do?

Many entrepreneurs and founders struggle with personal productivity and burnout. Work-life balance can be hard to find. With coaching, we’ll find a solution for you within the bustle of London.

Are you unhappy and ready for a change?

Coaching can help you understand why you’re unhappy and how you can change, as well as supporting you on that journey.

Are you a startup, and feeling that growing a business in London seems unachievable?

Starting a business can be daunting and confusing. Even knowing the first step to take can be a struggle. I’ll save you months of uncertainty and help you to establish yourself in the competitive London market.

May I ask you a question? Why NOW for business coaching?

A little about myself, and my background.

I’ve a degree in Computer Science, and have worked mostly in creative, marketing, tech and business for over 30 years now. 

I’ve had a huge variety of roles, including marketing, photography, design, UX, SEO, and of course business owner. I also undertook 3 years training in psychology.

My own online business has run for 23 years and grew to over 20 employees and £15 million in revenue.

It’s been the greatest achievement of my life, and has given me both freedom and security, both of which I value.

I’m an eternal problem solver and enjoy being creative with finding innovative solutions.

Every single challenge has many solutions. Coaching is the ideal solution to discovering solutions that suit you.

I now want to pass information, expertise and support onto the next generation of London entrepreneurs & business owners.

I was ready for a new challenge – coaching business owners with their own businesses. I know how challenging it can seem to move forward.

I’m an incredibly kind and thoughtful coach, and I aim to speed up your success.

For many clients, it’s their first time working with a professional coach. You can expect me to be a bright part of your day!

Let's design the business you want to run, rather than one that runs you.

When we start business coaching, a key goal is helping you build awareness of if, how and why your business isn’t quite how you want it.

Many business owners aren’t fully happy and content. Some are experiencing significant stress. These are ways we can know change is needed.

It should feel like you’re flowing with the current, rather than swimming against it.

If your business isn’t smooth and easy, change is needed. This might be in how your systems and processes work, or the overall direction of the business, or in the work you do.

Founders can spend many frustrating years discovering this for themselves.

It can take many years for business owners and startups to discover that they’re working within areas they don’t love, and yet continue to do so.

Let’s speed up the path to the perfect business through the awareness that coaching provides.

Over time, we’ll shift your business to suit who you are. Coaching will help to build awareness and a transition path, and mentoring will help you practically on your new path.

London isn’t a saturated business nightmare .. it’s a huge hub of nearby customers.

How do you see being in a thriving business hub like London?

There’s no doubt that the city brings with it huge opportunities, if used. 

Do you see your competition as a threat, or an exciting challenge?

Our mindset – the lens we see life through – dictates our success. If you see threats around you, anxiety increases, and we tend to make poorer quality short-term decisions.

How can a London business coach help you, then? I can switch your lens so you see the city as an asset.

In order to build a strategy which works for you, your location should be a positive. How can we use it to greatest effect? How can we grow using it?

Work within your strengths, not your weaknesses.

Regularly, business owners and entrepreneurs will work within their weaknesses, rather than doing what they love to do, and are good at.

Some may not even understand that they’re working in the wrong areas for them, although they might just be somehow unhappy and unproductive. Following others’ path to success is a common way to this point.

This leads to dissatisfaction and poor business growth.

Our willpower can keep us productive when we’re uncomfortable for only a short period. Over time it will impact the business.

Instead, let’s use your amazing strengths, and avoid or work through your weaknesses.

You bring huge benefits to your company. Maybe you’re a natural marketer, or networker? An amazing sales-person? Exceptionally organised? A creative thinker? Your business will thrive if every member in your organisation is working in their strengths, including you.

5 personal challenges that business owners regularly face.

Overwhelm & Stress.

When things become too much, business owners can experience levels of confusion and discomfort.

Typically, with overwhelm, it’s useful to remove everything and pick one area to work on. With stress, it’s important to understand why your emotions are so heightened.

Indecision & decision fatigue.

Decision making is a key element of business growth, but can be a source of challenge.

Constantly decision making can lead to a level of fatigue, which can cause burnout. On the other side, indecision leads to poor productivity.

Imposter syndrome.

Most founders see other businesses around them and think “I can’t compete with these people”.

The reality is, that to get where they are, there were years of effort and they probably felt a level of imposter syndrome too. If you choose to be consistent, with good business strategies behind you, you’ll encounter success for yourself. 


It can be emotionally distressing to experience the constant uncertainty of business.

Where is my next customer coming from? How will I pay bills and salaries? These are questions that many founders face, and after a while it can build fatigue.

Poor productivity.

Many entrepreneurs can find themselves switching tasks and projects, and procrastinating.

Especially in a thriving business hub like London, a high level of personal productivity is extremely desirable, but can be difficult to achieve. 

Business coaching allows you to achieve success more quickly.
