Who I help:

My clients come from everywhere. They operate many different types of businesses in all kinds of industries: builders, architects, trades people, designers, consultants, retail, IT, hospitality, and more.

However, most of the people I work with as a business-life coach share a common experience. They frequently feel stuck, swamped and overwhelmed, alternated by brief periods of excitement and fun.

Isolation, stress and overwhelm are part and parcel of the small business journey, from time to time. I’ve certainly had that experience in my many years running various businesses, before becoming a business-life coach. Most of my clients have as well, but the constant feeling of chaos disappears when you discover your own way outwith my help.

Architects and creatives are often confronted by a specific set of challenges in the development of their businesses. There is a constant tussle between your passion for the art and the need to build a healthy, sustainable and profitable business.

As a business-life coach, I have worked with many architects and designers over the years, and I have a special affinity for the conundrum that’s puzzling you. More here.
