My journey started about a year ago when I stumbled across a free 2-Day sample about coaching on Facebook. I signed up and it was at that taster session that I knew it-was-for-me.

I sensed the excitement as I walked into the room of the TCA’s free 2-Day event in March 2016. I sat down next to a lovely lady who introduced herself and we immediately formed a friendship, which endured as we supported each other through our coaching qualification.

It was one day in late 2015, when I had a moment of realisation: even though, through my role as a manager, I had spent lots of time and energy encouraging others to develop themselves, my own development had been static for too long. In essence, I was not acting on my own advice. It was at this point that I decided that I needed to move forward, and that it was finally time to address my own personal development!

My journey to becoming a qualified coach with The Coaching Academy may be slightly unusual as I am the CEO of an accountancy practice, Sleigh & Story, employing 10 people in the UK and about to double that overseas. I started my business in my back bedroom 12 years ago with no clients. I now have over 400 clients and have an annual turnover of more than half a million pounds with six figure earnings.

So there I was - fed up and frustrated with work and heading towards fifty.

This time last year, I was nearly qualified as an NLP Practitioner and had just started my journey to qualifying as a Personal Performance Coach with The Coaching Academy. Today, I have my own coaching business with a rewarding career helping my clients to improve and fulfil their lives. Sometimes, it’s hard to believe that was just 12 months ago, especially when I was then still managing anxiety challenges, didn’t really know what I was doing or how I was going to get there.

My story with The Coaching Academy started when I went to London in December 2013 and signed up for The Academy’s free 2-day Foundation in Life Coaching Course. I was amazed at how well organised the course was: the teachers, the infrastructure and the materials they gave us. All this care contributed to my first very good impression of the academy. Not to mention the fact that serving as a catalyst for people’s progress - one of the first things Kris Robertson said at that event - totally caught my attention. It was love at first sight!

I first 'stumbled’ upon The Coaching Academy when their 2-Day Foundation in Life Coaching course details popped up on Linked In. I signed up thinking it might be an interesting couple of days. Those 2 days have changed my life!

My coaching journey began with The Coaching Academy’s free 2-day event back in 2015. These 2-days truly gave me the confidence to move on and enrol on the Personal Coaching Diploma course as they gave me an insight into what I would be doing and how the things I would be learning could help improve my personal skills and career goals.

I have worked in sales and business development for many years and a large part of my role was in building and developing sales teams. I was responsible for training and mentoring sales consultants, many of whom had little or no sales experience. I found the biggest factor that hindered their success was a lack of confidence. The most satisfying part of my role was helping others feel more confident and motivated. I helped them to set goals and fulfill their plans.

I discovered coaching at a particularly challenging time in my life, which later, during my training with The Coaching Academy on Personal Performance Diploma, I found was not unusual. Like many others, I indulged my new passion by buying a number of coaching books from the internet. They all duly arrived through my letter box and I set about reading them.
