My name is Chris Cooper. I’m a Life Coach and Career Coach. I help people work out what they want from their life, career or business. Through life coaching and career coaching, I support them to achieve the positive outcomes they are looking for.
Ultimately, it's about becoming the best version of yourself, reaching your potential and becoming the person you want to be - with a career you love and feel passionate about.
As your coach, I will help you become more focused and self-aware and set the right goals to get you to where you want to be.
Here are some of the areas that I typically work with people on:

I offer one-to-one coaching sessions by phone or video call (e.g. Skype or Zoom). Working online means my coaching clients live across multiple time zones, despite me being based in Manchester, England.
When you’re trying to find a life coach, what’s most important is the person rather than finding someone nearby. Working online removes this barrier and means I can help you regardless of where you live.
