Moving from FEAR to FREEDOM!

Moving from FEAR to FREEDOM!



In this blog I wanted to provide you with an update on my Coaching business and what I plan to do next. I am excited to confirm that I am now providing Business and Life Coaching on a full time basis. This has been a dream of mine for many years and I am so happy this this dream has finally come true! I now have more time to carry-out research, create more blogs and of course provide coaching sessions to my clients.

It’s funny sometimes how life conspires to move you in a particular direction! Following a chain of events running over many years the words “FEAR” and “FREEDOM” kept popping into my head. I have had a lot of experience of fear - I have experienced it myself, my coaching clients have experienced it as have my business contacts and my friends.

It was as though these experiences were telling me - “Kev, this is your focus!”.

This fear tends to show up as anxiety or stress and can be an incredibly strong emotion that can shut you down and prevent you from being resourceful.

The root cause of the fear (anxiety/stress) can be from many areas of your life:

  • your business
  • your job
  • your relationships
  • your health
  • your money (...or the lack of it!) name just a few!

What ever the root cause the end result can be the same, below are just a hand-full of the symptoms of fear:

  • you can feel shut down
  • lack resourcefulness to resolve a problem
  • you can only see a negative outcome
  • you struggle to get a good night’s sleep
  • fear can manifest itself physically making you feel terrible!

Moving forward the focus of my Coaching business will be to help people (either business clients or life coaching clients) who are struggling with fear (anxiety or stress) and help them get their freedom!

I also will be releasing a series of blogs based upon the theme of fear and provide ways you can move yourself away from fear and move towards your freedom!

10 Ways to get a GREAT NIGHT’S SLEEP!

In this first video I address one of the symptoms I mention above - “struggling to get a good night’s sleep”.

Sleep is a vital component of having good mental and physical health. I have struggled for a number of years to get a restful sleep and I know the impact of poor quality sleep and also not getting enough sleep. Many people struggle to sleep well because of their anxiety or stress. Following my own experience and research I share 10 ways that you can get a great night’s sleep - and take a step closer to your freedom! I hope you enjoy it!

Kev’s BLOG Tip - “Super Brain!”

I am currently on a 30 day programme called “Super Brain”. This is a Mind Valley programme and is run by Jim Kwik who is known for his incredible memory and his ability to remember the names of 100 people he meets at his seminars (in order!). He shares lots of techniques , strategies and tips about how to improve your memory. From remembering peoples names, presenting to people without notes to speeding up learning of a 2nd language (which is important to me as I am learning Welsh and really want to crack it this year!).

The reason I decided to look for a coach was to become unstuck in my career, within one session I gained the confidence to apply for a new job and got it! I needed clarity on what I wanted in my working life which inevitably with Kev’s coaching style bumped into other areas of my life that needed fine tuning. I seemed to have a gap between the real me and the outdated story I was telling myself. With Kev’s help I was able to realise I didn’t need to be more, less, better or worse, that I was resourceful already, can use my intuition to good effect and that it was OK being me. Kev’s relaxed style made it easy for me to move forward and I left each session feeling positive. I would thoroughly recommend giving Coaching a go with Kev.

I began my sessions with Kev to address issues I knew I had around anxiety in my professional and personal life. I could see how the anxiety was limiting me and wanted to change, to not be restricted by my emotions. My self-esteem was very low so I was finding it difficult to talk publicly, to be confident in my work and to have the drive to take action in my life. In our sessions we’ve worked a lot on my anxiety. He’s helped me break things down and has given me the tools I needed to help me manage my own mind and overcome the obstacles that I faced. The difference I’ve noticed in myself since starting with Kev has been immeasurable. I’ve grown in confidence and I’ve noticed my anxiety is not restricting me as much in my daily life, I’m a much happier person. I would recommend Kev to anyone who’s feeling stuck in their life, who want to understand their own minds better and overcome emotional barriers. His approach allows you to find your own solutions by giving you the tools you need, this method has meant that I’ve been able to go away form our sessions and work on other problems in my own time, such a valuable skill.

I found Kevin an incredibly talented as a coach. From the first session I had with him, I could tell the deep knowledge and passion he has toward helping his clients. His uplifting skills and positive energy helped me to open up in many aspects of my life and business path. I enjoyed his new approach that he used in every coaching session. You will be thinking that he is done with you, then he'll surprise you about a challenge that will stretch your brain in many ways. Kevin is a coach by nature, and by many other natural traits that he demonstrates during his sessions. I would highly recommend Kevin as both a career and personal coach. In fact his broad experience in both life and business is what makes him a wonderful coach and a human being to work with.

I was a bit sceptical when I started out on this experience with Kev but now I am so pleased I did. He managed to bring out the business skills I had forgotten I had and gave me the confidence to tackle some issues I knew I had to address but had put off. Our conversations allow me to bounce off ideas that I couldn’t digest during the normal working day and gave me food for thought. After each session I felt refreshed and ready to take on whatever was thrown at me. He has a knack of asking questions that he knows you have the answers to if you dig deep enough and encourages you to find them and to believe in yourself.

I hired Kevin as my Business Coach while I was starting my new business and also going through a divorce. Kevin's compassionate nature and solution-focused approach helped me move forward with my business while experiencing a great deal of personal transition. Kevin allowed me to discover clarity and focus while providing me with excellent accountability through our coaching together.

Kevin was fully committed to me as his client, this projected an extraordinary positive energy in the sessions which created a trustful and empowering environment to enable me to find my path for my goals. During my journey of coaching with Kevin I was in one of those “life crash moments”, he helped me to understand who I am and what I want, which has been an extraordinary remedy to bring me peace and happiness. Thank you, Kevin!

During my sessions with Kevin, he was able to coach me to a much sharper focus on my issues. In a very short time I gained a deeper insight, new learning and a clear way forward. The sessions were delightfully surprising, effective and professionally delivered.

Over the last 6 months Kevin has worked with me as my Executive Coach, during this time he has coached me through a number of key areas. As a coach, he is very calm, knowledgeable and most importantly insightful, he has a great ability to ask the right question or use the right intervention just at the right moment. Working with Kevin has been a very reinforcing and positive experience, where he has afforded me the time and space to allow me to work through the areas I brought to each session in a creative and supportive manner. Kevin is a very natural Coach and I would highly recommend him.

Being coached by Kev has given me the opportunity to unashamedly think just about myself and the future and to get clarity about my own business development without feeling time-pressured. It’s lonely at the top: I don’t have anyone to talk to about decisions affecting my businesses. No-one should be an island. I was an island before Kev. Coaching is unlocking my blocks. Having the experience of someone else who is in business and speaking through solutions has been very beneficial to me. Coming up with a list of achievable goals to deliver and knowing you need to deliver them is what I wanted out of the coach - and is what I am getting.
