Types of People I am Great at Supporting


There are certain types of people I really click with.  It’s important that you and your coach are vibing at the same frequency. Plus, I like to make positive and meaningful connections in all areas of my life. So naturally, I want to work with people I can relate to. These days my life is all about fun, adventure, ease, peace and flow. Meeting life’s challenges from a focused, centred and grounded place. I’ll help you to do the same.

It’s important to me that the people I work with are authentic, passionate, committed, resourceful and have a dream around creating a big impact in the world. If that sounds like you, schedule your free 30 minute empowering conversation with me by clicking one of the buttons on this page.

Create Your Soulshine Lifestyle

Are you fed up of materialism, pushing and striving. Chasing bigger, better, faster?  

Disillusioned with your career path? Do you need to find clarity and rekindle enjoyment      of your work? 

Do you want to drop into the flow of life?

Do you want to escape the stress and frustration of a 9 to 5 career and achieve more freedom, a more rewarding and purposeful life? 

Do you feel stressed, overwhelmed, pressured, trapped. Do you want to slow down, enjoy life, travel and explore?

Would you like to make more conscious life choices? Live off grid, chase a dream? Do you have a vision of how you can help others and make a big impact in the world?

My story – Part 1

Strength and Sensitivity 

You can have both

Sometimes, life isn’t all fun and adventure. We all have our ups and downs. At times we need the support of someone strong and caring to reach down and help pull us out of a hole. 

I know, I’ve been there!  I’m lucky that I had a fabulous network of wonderful people to help me through difficult times. 

I’ve had my struggles and come through them stronger. In fact, my challenges are what led me to develop the tools necessary to firstly, heal myself, then help others, and now enable me to live my current lifestyle. 

I have lot’s of personal insights to share with you and help you on your path. 

From an early age, I had a strong sense of who I was, how I wanted to show up in the world, and a desire to live life my way. Not in a rebellious way, but in a quietly determined way.

I didn’t run with the pack, or give in to peer pressure. So led a sheltered life. At times, it felt like I was on the sidelines, not fully integrated. However, even though I love people and being around friends, I was also happy in my own company.

I was single minded, patient, adaptable and confident in my own abilities. When things were not going how I wanted, I changed them. I could step back, see the bigger picture and play the long game. Creating visions that mattered to me, keeping focused and persisting until I reached my goals. I wasn’t afraid of hard work.

I left school and worked as an electrician on building sites and in engineering works. I spent a decade studying and working up through the ranks. I spent a number of years working for two large multi-national engineering corporations.

After my first existential crisis, I retrained as a financial adviser. Which involved a great deal of study and self development. Plus, as if that wasn’t enough of a challenge, I also transitioned to self employment! It seemed like a good idea at the time! However, the financial services environment just wasn’t me. Added to that I was in a failing marriage. These were difficult years of my life. I started to develop my coping strategies and taking a more holistic approach to well-being.  Hiking and getting out in nature was my solace. 

The credit crunch, and then some time later, divorce, led me to my next big crises. By now I was just about the right age to call this a mid-life crisis. Both my mental and physical health had suffered due to prolonged stress and anxiety. I knew that things couldn’t continue as they were and so made drastic changes.  This was the big turning point in my life.

I trained as a Personal Finance Coach helping people to arrange their finances in a way to support and achieve their lifestyle goals. It was then I realised that my purpose in life is to help others overcome their challenges.

I also started to focus on my own lifestyle goals; I backpacked solo along the Pennine Way, I ran a marathon, I embraced my lifelong love of music and started performing in bands. My first public performance was 2 months before my 40th birthday!

I have continued my lifelong learning journey by spending more than 350 hours, over an 18 month period, training to be a Sound Therapy Practitioner.  Experiencing the benefits of holistic practices on myself and others, I have continued my studies in mindfulness, meditation, reiki and qi gong.

So, in addition to my professional qualifications gained in a number of different careers, I have a wealth of life experience to draw on to support you in your journey. I have been self employed for over 20 years. I have worked for massive corporations and transitioned through a number of careers. Plus I have experienced challenges in my personal life. I know all about change! At times it can seem scary, but taking control of your life is also very empowering. 

All of these changes have honed my skills and led me to living the wonderful lifestyle that I do today. This process was about re-discovering who I was, what I valued, and aligning my life with authenticity and my true self. It was about creating my very own soulshine life! 

How would you like to Re-Discover Your Soulshine? 

Whether you want to improve your whole lifestyle, your work, your finances, your creativity, your relationships, your health and well-being, whatever; just get in touch. I know I can help.

It will only take a minute, but the changes will last a lifetime!

Client Experiences


Leeds Based Client

” I got in touch with Craig because, although I was in a reasonably secure financial situation, I couldn’t stop worrying about my future with regards to money. My finances felt out of control, like a murky mystery that I couldn’t solve. I wanted to spend my time being creative and calm, not constantly worrying.

Craig helped me see that I had all the skills I needed to get my finances in order. With his guidance, I discovered my financial personality and how to create a budget to suit it and my plans for the future.  I now feel completely confident that my financial present and future are manageable, and know I’ll be prepared for anything unexpected that might pop up.

As a result of our work together, my mindset has shifted from one of worry and lack to one of gratitude and abundance. The extra mental bandwidth and confidence I gained from our work together has also helped me develop my creative business from nearly non-existent to actively thriving. I can now trust my financial intuition, and am able to pick the clients that I know I would love to work with, rather than accepting low rates out of fear.

 Before working with Craig, I had thought I would always be bad with money, and that it would always be a course of distress. Now, dealing with my finances feels like a natural and joyful part of my creative process. “

York Based Client

” Initial Thoughts

When I came across Craig’s flyer, I was at something of a life crossroads and was feeling anxious about the state of my finances and overwhelmed by my work and career choices. I was stuck and needed to find a way forward. I knew I was in a place where I needed to lay down some new beliefs about my relationship to money, in order to get some new outcomes, but didn’t really know where to begin. I got in touch with Craig to ask for his help and advice, with a feeling I had nothing to lose, and this very quickly turned into a feeling of having come to the right place and finding the type of support I needed.

 The Discovery Call

A short 30-minute phone call session with Craig was a helpful starting point. With precise but non-judgemental prompting from him, I was able to verbalise some of the problems I was having. This phone call made me feel that coaching could definitely be something that would be really useful for me and at the end of the session we discussed a way forward together.

 Craig always ensures that his clients are working at their own pace, and this is reassuring when taking tentative steps to address financial patterns and habits that are often based on underlying emotions. This phone call was key for me, in that I realised the types of language and words I was using when discussing my life. Hearing phrases and choices of words coming out of my own mouth, that implied a powerlessness and lack of focus made it clear to me that I needed to take bold positive actions to begin to change my habitual ways of thinking and behaving.

 One to One Coaching Sessions

I went in to the One to One sessions feeling curious about what the process would yield and perhaps still a little anxious. Craig was excellent at creating a relaxed and surprisingly fun environment for me to explore my individual attitudes toward money and my relationship to it, and we outlined what I would like to get out of the sessions together. It reminded me how rarely (if ever) we get a chance to discuss matters around money in a relaxed, safe and non-pressured environment. I enjoyed being given a chance to reflect on my own inherited attitudes.  

Using a fun card came, I came up against some of my more challenging unconscious beliefs around money such as: ‘all people with money are corrupt.’ These moments were surprising and uncomfortable for me, but crucial in that they provided me with an opportunity to begin to shape more conscious thought and patterns, and work towards my goal of setting a financial path that wasn’t based on the two extremes of my childhood, or on the expectations of others.  

 Craig was always helpful in helping me find the route through my thoughts and feelings, feeding back my thoughts and comments, and providing prompts, games and exercises to keep the workshop moving. Craig has a friendly and easy-going manner and his thoughts and anecdotes from his own experience help to illuminate points of discovery, and give a wider context to the work. 

Overall Feelings

I went into this process with a feeling of I had nothing to lose, and have come out of it feeling I have gained so much!  

By the end of the coaching sessions I had some clear and focused action points that had been outlined as a result of balanced emotional and rational thinking. The overwhelmed feeling has been replaced with clarity and focus. I feel less plagued with anxiety about the outcome of my efforts and in a better place to feel easy and light about embracing my own personal and individual circumstances, and take positive steps from the place where I am now.  

With Craig’s help I feel in a more positive place to take bold career steps based on focus and self-worth, and the feedback points we have agreed over the next couple of months help the feeling you have someone on your side. Having someone to support you through transition points in your life is very empowering, and I would encourage anyone to take Craig on as a coach. It has been an incredibly enjoyable, and rewarding experience.

Don’t Settle For Less

How much do you want your Soulshine Life?

There’s a cost to everything we want to do in life. There’s also the cost of not rising to be the best version of you. To not living a fulfilled and inspiring life. To settling for second best.

It’s going to take time, effort and money to create your soulshine life but it’s well worth it! A few months from now you could be well on your way to living life on your terms. What’s the best version of you worth? 

Check out the packages below and see which best suits your needs. Or better still, contact me to arrange your free 30 minute empowering conversation. You will  gain clarity, focus and confidence as I take you through your first coaching call with me. 

Bespoke One to One Coaching Packages

Here’s the thing. Coaching is not a one size fits all package. Our coaching relationship will be unique. We will develop a coaching package that meets your individual needs. Below you can get an idea of the scope of services I offer. All packages run in 3 month blocks. We will work at your pace to meet your goals. These are laser focused, 1 to 1 sessions just for you, with tons of added value.

Experience a Coaching Conversation



Not sure what coaching can do for you? I get that. Before you make an investment in yourself, you want to see what you’re getting. Will it work for you? I know it will. 100% No Doubt.

But you have to know that too. That’s what the free 30 minute EMPOWERING CONVERSATION is all about. Let me demonstrate the power of coaching for you.

If jumping on a one to one call seems intimidating for you right now, then the Frustration to FREEDOM workshop may be the next best step. I run Group Coaching Packages a few times a year.

Group Coaching Packages

If working with the support of a team appeals to you, then you may prefer a group coaching package. Coaching sessions are attended by the whole group with a maximum of 10 people in each group. Each package runs over 3 months, with sessions held every fortnight. I will coach a number of people from the group ‘live’ in each session. The whole group participates and shares their learnings from the session. Group sessions can provide a rich learning experience, within a community of like minded people.

My story – Part 2

Soulshine Life – The Poem 

An empty shell laid derelict and bare

A long time since any love lived there

The garden was tended, but that was just show

So at first glance, no-one would know

Foundations rocked, insides crumbling

Another knock could send the whole thing tumbling


But from a tiny window I could see

A brighter future awaiting me

So I did not lose hope, I did not despair

For knowing one day I would repair

All the damaged that had been done

To once again bask in the sun


So I clung hard onto this vision

That was to release me from my prison

It has taken time and some contemplation

To complete this inspired restoration

From a battered shell, a transformation grand

As proud and tall I now stand


Want to know about this magic of mine

I re-discovered how to let my soul shine !

 Soulshine Life is not my business name, it’s my way of life!


My aims in life are simple: to enjoy life and be happy. To make positive and meaningful connections with people in all areas of my life. To do work I love and ensure I have plenty of spare time to do the other things I love. Music, Travel, The Great Outdoors.

My current lifestyle is pretty amazing! I do work that I love and I choose when I do it. I have more free time to focus on me, my music, my love of the outdoors and travelling. 

It’s not always been that way, life not so long ago felt very different. In the past I’ve been caught up in the daily grind, trying to forge a career. There’s been the usual ups and downs of personal life and on top of that all the stresses and strains of modern life. But I’m glad to say I have put all that behind me!

A while back I went through a difficult period of time in my life following a few setbacks. At that time to me, it seemed that my whole world was crashing down. I was disillusioned with my life and decided things had to change.

I started off by working through my ‘one day’ list. You know, that list of things that you promise yourself you are going to do …. one day. What’s on your list?

I soon cottoned on to the fact that the more I did the things that made me happy, the better life seemed. The happier I became the more opportunities fell my way, or did I just notice them more?

I started to uncover the things that really mattered to me in my life. The things that I had somehow lost along the way. The things that a routine daily life had tried to bury.

I started to push my comfort zone and chase bigger dreams. I created a vision of my ideal life and I am well on my way to  achieving it!

I have studied, researched and re-trained a few times to get where I am today. To cut a long story short, Soulshine.life was born as a result of my own evolution and expansion.

I now use what I have learned myself, to help others make shifts in the way they live their lives. If you are ready for your lifestyle breakthrough, then arrange your free 30 minute empowering conversation with me. Click one of the buttons on this page and lets start something exciting today.


Still Have Questions? 

 I bet you do.

Investing in yourself can be a big decision. Facing your challenges can be scary. The thought of being the most wonderful & magnificent person that you are, can feel intimidating. But that’s why I am here to hold space for you, until you are comfortable standing in your power.

If you are scared and excited all at the same time, then schedule your free 30 minute empowering conversation. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. We will unpack what is really holding you back in creating your ideal lifestyle. 

I’ll answer all your questions and I promise that by the end of the call you’ll know if you’d like to work with me or not. If you decide not to continue with your coaching sessions, then your 30 minute empowering conversation is my gift to you.  

Let’s start something exciting today!

Here’s to your new empowered lifestyle, Craig.
