Plan. Execute. Evolve. Repeat.

 “Once you realize how beautiful you are, you will find it hard to keep the company of those who do not.” – Bruce Jett

If you don’t have a plan for your life, you’re probably part of somebody else’s plan. I believe that knowing what you want from your life is the most important question each person needs to find an answer for. Whenever we feel uneasy about something in our life or battle indecision, it is because our life plan/purpose is not clear.

I work with clients to help them formulate a plan that’s right for them and keep them accountable to execute their plan continuously until these positive daily actions become unconscious habits that transform their lives.

My approach to the development of a life strategy starts with the development self-love and increasing self-awareness. I work with my clients to ensure that this is achieved through a healthy and balanced mind. A person that is self-aware has a high degree of self-love and has a plan for their life can overcome any problems that manifest in their lives.

  • Improve your health, diet or personal fitness.
  • Eliminate feelings of depression, heartache or any other negative emotion.
  • Learn how to attract wealth, abundance or your ideal career.
  • Find personal peace and happiness.

I am a certified level 2 NLP practitioner/coach.

Living My Dream Life.


“Gareth started coaching me at a time when I had little clarity and too many ideas on how to take my dream-life forward. With his patience, optimism and supportive methodologies, he opened up possibilities. During my time with Gareth, too many positive connections were made on my path to call it a coincidence. I feel stronger and more confident to step into my dream-Life every day now. Thank you” – Simone
