Non-judgemental kink aware life- and executive- coaching.
Here's an irony: I've had to change my name for this listing. For the record, it's got two t's in both my first and last name.
Why? Because I have two different coaching practices and there is a firewall between them. Google is a pain sometimes.
I work in South East Asia under my real name, training, consulting for and coaching leadership teams in educational institutions. This is my primary business. This means I do a lot of work in countries that are not exactly open to being LGBT+, let alone kinky. I have to be very careful what I say. Feel free to contact me if you would like details of this practice.
At the same time, I am personally very much into the kink world and my other practice, under "English Leather Master" focuses on those people who find that their sexuality, gender or kinks intersect with their lives or businesses.
I work with people who want to make a breakthrough in their line of work, their business, or their relationships. Sometimes, their sexuality or sexual predilections get in the way; at other times, it's just easier if the coach understands why you feel torn between your company's annual conference and going to Folsom street fair without having to explain yourself. I'm able to help because I've been there too.
How can I help?
I offer non-judgemental coaching for anyone wanting to make a breakthrough, whether in their home life or their business. My style of coaching allows you to put everything on the table to help you gain awareness of what it is you actually want from life or your work and find the best way of achieving it. I'm an Erickson certified Solution Focused Coach, ICF member (working up to ACC hours, but trained to PCC level). This means a lot of the work I do is at the values level - finding out what really makes you tick and what would truly bring you happiness, fulfilment and satisfaction.
Almost all of my coaching takes place online (via Zoom meetings or Skype), which means you don't have to travel and can work with me discreetly if that's important to you. I'm very flexible with times, too, so fit around your schedule.
I work with people who are stuck. Who are confused as to which route to take. Who are trying to achieve a goal but can't get past a barrier. Who want something but don't know how to get it. Or who don't know what they want, and have so many thoughts and options they are lost.
So whether you're trying to build a business with an erotic element but can't work out the best marketing strategy, trying to find a partner who's into spanking, or are struggling to live life in a religious context while enjoying tying submissives up, get in touch. Let's have a chat and see whether working together would help you achieve your goals.
Finally, I am incredibly aware of how much the gay community has to look after its own. I personally grew as a gay man under the friendship and mentoring of a number of older gay men. In this time of grindr and the quick hook up and the death of the gay bar, the sense of community can get lost. My way of passing this down the line is to offer a "pay it forward" scheme. Clients who are able to add 10-20% on top of the cost of coaching are encouraged to do so. I match this amount and offer total as a discount to potential clients who are younger, disabled or otherwise less able to pay the full amount.
