Want to talk to someone about how you can become more confident? Are you stuck in a rut, needing some encouragement? Do you have a specific issue you're stuck on? Or are you unsure what the problem even is, and need some help sorting it out? If so, you could probably benefit from some personal coaching.

I offer one-on-one coaching via Skype to men (and women) anywhere in the world so you get help tailored to your specific needs. Confidence is a social skill, so your confidence will grow faster when I coach you in person. You get support, understanding and direct feedback on your situation which will enable you to gain confidence and deal with the issues in your life much more quickly than you could on your own. I can help you pinpoint and deal with the troubling emotions that underlie a lack of confidence and low self-esteem because I know from personal experience how helpful this can be.
I'll be your sounding board to talk over what's going on for you with no bullshit. Often it takes another person to help us see what's really going on for us. I also use a series of questions to pinpoint exactly where you are stuck and how to move forward by identifying and dealing with the unpleasant emotion that is holding you back. It's difficult to have a clear perspective on our own emotional issues and this is why a coach with an outside perspective can be so helpful. I have many coaches, and have found the process invaluable in my own life, which is why I'm offering it to you.
If you're a man, having support from other men is vital to overcoming the isolation that many of us feel when we lack confidence. Building confidence has been a huge challenge for me, so I understand where you're coming from. You'll get the understanding, support and encouragement you need to help you move forward. You get to be really honest about exactly where you're at, and get specific feedback on what action you can take to improve your life. Wherever you're at, coaching can help you get to the next level faster.
If you're a woman, being able to talk to a man who "gets it" about the difficulties you're having in your relationship with another guy or just in dealing with your own insecurities can make a massive difference. You'll get something from me that you can't get from your girlfriends or from other guys: a genuine empathic male perspective.
"I cannot overstate how much talking to you has helped me.
You've really made such a huge difference by being there for me."

I can also be your empathy buddy and offer you the empathy required to heal the emotional wounds that undermine self-confidence. The process is all about setting your true self free. I work hard on being as authentic and honest as possible in my own life, and would love to help you to do the same.
If this is resonating with you, contact me now to see how I can help you.
