What Makes Me Qualified To Be A Life Coach
For as long as I can remember people have always approached me seeking advice, guidance, help, reassurance, and indeed some kind of coaching. I’ve never sought people out, they’ve found me or just opened up to me. Total strangers on a train or in a pub would often bear their souls to me looking for a little nugget to get them through. Friends would often confide in me their deepest secrets that were causing them consternation. Somehow, I was able to help these people.
Did I think to become a Life Coach then? Of course not! I trained as an actor, became a musician and had any number of mind numbing jobs in between! In the early 2000’s a friend recommended a book to me and it had such a profound effect that I knew that I should be doing Life Coaching.

But did I become a Life Coach then? No! I know what you’re probably thinking...how can this guy be the right person for me? Read on and I’ll tell you!
Unlike therapy and counselling, Life Coaching doesn’t require any formal qualifications. However, I knew that if I was to be able to fully serve any future clients I would need to gain as much experience as I possibly could. I’d need to get as much information to share with people as possible. I attended seminars, read as many books as I could on a wide variety of topics that have ideas to get me thinking. I did courses in various subjects to assist with my development including a couple on Life Coaching. I'm a qualified reiki healer, and soon to become a reiki master. I am a Certified Law Of Attraction Advanced Practitioner. I've done courses in EFT. I'm doing courses in NLP, Astrology, Character Analysis, Dream Analysis and many more! Some of these courses took a while, some are on going. I still read widely, I still attend seminars when I can and I always try to quench my thirst for knowledge by doing as many different courses as I can.
Fast forward to 2019 and I finally felt ready to start my new business, Stand Sure In Life. Why the name? The motto of the family clan is Stand Sure. The shield has an oak tree as its emblem - hence the logo! The red leaf is for...well read the story! The process of setting up the company is a long one but it’s the most enjoyment I’ve had in a long time. Nothing would give me greater pleasure than to help my clients find their way.
