Hi, I'm Jamie. 

I'm a qualified Social Worker and Executive Coach.  I've worked in Children's Social Care for over 15 years; over 8 years as a Social Worker and manager.  I've worked with 100s of people who have struggled in their lives in some way. 

My clients tend to be successful people, but struggle with their own internal dialogue. 

I'm a straight-talking coach, kind and empathetic, but not here to be a friend.  I coach people out of their comfort zones and into a new zone which offers exponential growth.  

I'm an insightful thinker and am passionate about making the world a better place to live for me and my children.  I would say that being a parent of three children, all of which have entered their teenage years, is where my biggest learning comes from.  Each one unique in style and perspective of the world but also probably my biggest testers of patience.  More formally however...
