Self Awareness Solutions


The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The meaning of life is to pass it on.

About Ross, Your Life Coach

My approach to coaching is through developing self-awareness relationally, seeking an understanding of human perspectives and the connections between people.

Through training over many years I am able to encompass several differing, yet connectable, themes and theories in psychology. I’ve gained my experience and knowledge by working as a therapist with individuals, couples and groups since 2002.

My accreditations

  • Member of the British Association of Counselors and Psychotherapists (BACP) since 2001 (Senior Accreditation currently)
  • BACP Qualified & Accredited Life Coach
  • Qualified Coach Badminton Association of England (BAE) from 1998 to 2006
  • Accredited Professional Childminder from 1988 to 2001

My working years:

  • Since 2003 over six thousand working hours in a full time private practice
  • Consultant Manager with the Epsom Counselling Service where I advise on policy, provide general management, assess clients and continue as a therapist
  • An external assessor for training to Degree level at a BACP accredited Counselling College (2003 to 2008)
  • Successful owner and/or manager in various business and community enterprises
  • Over thirty years experience in the commercial and business world. In particular Sales, Retail, Gaming and Journalism
  • Youth Coach in Badminton skills to Junior County level for over seven years (1998 to 2006)
  • Accredited professional childminder co-owning and working in  a home nursery (1989 to 2001)
  • Consultant in Gaming Industry (1999 to 2003)
  • Deputy Editor and Journalist for a national Horse Racing & Football newspaper (1986 to 1989)

As part of my desire to continue to learn I maintain my own continuing personal and professional development through various avenues including research and ongoing training.

Life is a challenge from conception through to death.  To overcome these challenges successfully involves certain skills and talents as well as loads of practice.

We aren’t born with the necessary skills, we don’t often get taught many of them as we grow, we then don’t believe we can get it right and then we rarely have the expert impartial guidance required to set us on the right path.

It’s for those reasons that life coaching can support and develop a wiser connection to the world, enabling and empowering us all for more fulfilled living.

Don’t leave it too late to meet, and beat, your life challenges!
