My Life Coaching Process is influenced by…
Although I encourage my clients to set lofty goals for their achievement, it’s important to cast aside our attachment to material possessions and their ability to define us. Stoicism helps keep us grounded, more resilient in the midst of situations we cannot control and helps us develop character through voluntarily embracing regular periods of hardship and sacrifice.
Ikigai is the Japanese principle that relates to our ‘reason for being’ loosely, your Ikigai is the intersection of what you love, what the world needs, what you are competent at and what you can be paid for. Discovering your Ikigai can ignite the pursuit of a meaningful vocation. In essence discovering your Ikigai can be likened to unravelling what will make your life worthwhile, by your own definition.
Carl Jung’s work was a major part of my academic development and helped me do many years of inner work on myself. I help my clients understand the significance of their unconscious motivations and help to identify where unconscious patterns and personality factors may be contributing to the current conditions of their lives.
Carl Rogers’ person-centred therapy works toward life changing distinctions and moments of insight inspired by warm, welcoming and honest conversations. It is not uncommon for just one session of raw, honest conversation to lead to paradigm shifting ideas and moments of clarity.
Holistic Health Practice
My coaching style has been strongly influenced by my 10 years working as a personal trainer at the highest level. In order to be at our best we must feel good and have plenty of energy, this is achieved by developing a healthy lifestyle, maintaining a healthy weight and personalising one’s health and fitness practices to their unique physical and genetic makeup. It’s imperative to reduce our overall levels of stress and inflammation for optimal health in the moment, as well as lowering our risk factors for future health issues.
Why ‘Healthy Ambition’?
Over the course of my ten years in personal training I was fortunate enough to work with a selection of some of the most successful men and women on the planet, from a variety of industries including Film, Music, Banking, Recruitment and beyond.
Whilst many of my clients had surely achieved a great deal of success in their careers, the vast majority had traded an aspect of their health during the years of hard work that were necessary to achieve at such a high level. These would manifest in problems such as Digestive issues, a lack of sleep, elevated health markers i.e blood pressure, cholesterol and resting heart rate which in turn elevate one’s risk of developing serious illness. Often, with just a handful of cutting edge lifestyle interventions and a re-thinking of the daily work schedule my clients and I were able to see great improvements in health, energy levels and performance.
My 'healthy ambition' life coaching service allows ambitious individuals and high performers to continue to deliver at a remarkable level, whilst developing a lifestyle that aims to allow them to enjoy their success in full health.
Who Should Work With Me?
I work with ambitious men and women from all over the globe who acknowledge the connection between mind and body, stress and performance and would like guidance in creating a 30,000ft view of their life. Together my clients and I seek to marry work, enjoyment and health.
Many of my life coaching clients are at the absolute pinnacle of their professions globally and are seeking to reconcile their work demands with their health. Others are at the beginning of an exciting journey and work with me to determine their ideal career and business path, to create a life of success, freedom and fulfillment.

Solopreneur business coaching
I have coached many people through the process of setting up and growing a business, whether working for themselves and seeking to build a client base, or establishing a small team and developing a freedom business to allow them to live the life they have imagined for themselves. This means establishing which profession would be an ideal fit, how to bring the idea to market, build an online presence and promote it.
Fitness & Wellness Professional
Over the last 12 years I have learned a lot about what makes for a successful fitness professional having build clients bases in person in multiple countries, owned and run gyms, operated boot camp companies, worked in corporate wellness and developed a renowned online personal training service. I can help you develop as a professional to offer great value to your clients and build a business that will give you the life you design
Goal setting is an essential element of personal development, I help my clients set realistic and achievable goals, in all areas of their lives. Generally I will help a client create an overarching theme for the setting of goals they wish to achieve, and then establish a list of primary goals. Once goals are set we will develop a working plan for the attainment of each goal. We’ll have a constant dialogue throughout the process, providing a high level of focus and accountability.
My Principles of Coaching
Maintaining optimal health is essential to performance. When we look and feel good we are able to work more efficiently for longer. Good health also allows us to enjoy life with a higher degree of freedom, after all when it is all said and done no level of success will compensate for poor health. It’s for this reason that optimal health is treated as the highest priority to all of my coaching clients.
A ship needs to know it’s destination before it can set sail, whilst things can change on route, knowing what you are working towards is essential. I encourage all of my clients to set and assess their goals across the many facets of life.
Personal development is all about continued improvement or what Anthony Robbins would call ‘constant and never ending improvement’. Once you are thoroughly engaged in personal development, you’ll always be looking for and implementing strategies to improve areas of your life. Naturally you will focus on different areas of life over phases of development.
Once goals have been established it is important to regularly track progress to make sure that your initial strategy is paying off, sometimes the route to a specific goal has to be amended along the journey. It’s all a part of the process, but to maximise your progress it’s important to catch what’s not working early. My quarterly review system calls for a complete assessment of your goal list every 12 weeks.
Do the inner work
Whilst we can set goals and achieve great things with discipline, hard work and focus, often there are unconscious processes holding us back from realising our true potential. These unconscious processes, sometimes referred to as a ‘sub-personality’ could be responsible for us repeating patterns and behaviours in life that do not serve us. Taking the time for inner reflection, deep work and paying close attention to the insight our subconscious provides can be invaluable.
Inspired by stoic philosophy, I believe that life is enriched by times of deliberate challenge and sacrifice. Whether this be singular focus to accomplish a specific project or casting aside material comforts for a period of time specifically to develop character. These periods make you far more resilient in times of true hardship.
Part of finding a valuable career path is to devote yourself to work that is not just self-serving, but will be of maximal benefit to those around you and your wider society. This fortifies your work with meaning and enables you to persevere through hard times.
Utilise low hanging fruit
All of us have a wealth of opportunity right underneath our noses. Learning how to utilize the resources you have around you is a fundamental skill-set of the entrepreneurial class. Harnessing the power of an introduction, an opportunity to showcase your skills or an underutilised resource can be the catalyst to drive you forward to a whole new level of success.
Whilst it’s important to set realistic short term goals and track the progress of their achievement, it’s just as important to allow yourself to dream as big as you can. Why would we cap our own potential? Every successful individual we would seek to emulate started with a dream just like you.
Success leaves clues, as important as it is to be original, there are many men and women out there who already achieved the success you desire. Learning from the experience of successful people vicariously through study or in person via coaching and mentorship is how huge leaps forward are made in a short period of time, even Michael Jordan had a coach.
What my Clients are Saying…..
Request: Help to Build & Focus Goals For Digital Nomad Fitness Business
“With The advice that I've got from Scott has been great. The most important thing has been to establish the top priorities for each quarter. Previously I have struggled to know what to focus on over the course of the year, having a direct plan of achievement has really helped. As a coach myself I know how important accountability is. It has been great to work with someone who has really been there and done it in the fitness industry and already built a similar business up for himself.”
Request: Career Planning & Personal Development
“I got to a crossroads in my career and couldnt make a decision. I didn't know which way to go. Everything felt grey as if I was surrounded by fog. Scott tailored the session completely around my personal circumstances. He helped me figure out what made me happy, my motivations and aims. He then honed out out a pathway for me based on my personal factors. I am friends with several psychiatrists who were very sceptical about seeing someone outside the field about personal development.... now they are lining up!”
Dr S Balachandra
Request: Establish Healthy Lifestyle
“As a 90% recovered eating disorder sufferer I can safely say that this plan was one of the best things I ever did. Bit bias as I did sign up with Scott but it was exactly what I needed. A daily activity regime and a set menu to tell me exactly what to eat throughout the day. I had tried everything prior to this and found it impossible to make my own choices, being shown the light with a set regime set me free and was well worth the money. This is a great way to put on weight and recover whilst taking away some of the panic and anxiety associated with it, you must have to learn to trust the professionals and the fact they know what they are talking about and will not let the fearful "get fat" happen. I made huge progress with Scott and can highly recommend his services, I would not be where I am now without him”
Damian Goddard Clark
Request: Help Building a Personal Brand + Personal Development
Tejal initially joined my online personal training service in order to get in fantastic shape for a fitness modelling photoshoot, the idea being that she could use career defining pictures to launch her own fitness brand. Following on from the success of her shoot we engaged in a business workshop which would help Tejal carve out her own niche for powerful female fitness lovers. We also found that there were some psychologically blocks holding her back from fully committing, but I'm happy to say that she has overcome them and is thriving in her fitness career.
Soloprenuer & Fitness Model
Request: Train For Charity Endurance Event
"with the fortune of having Scott at my disposal, I signed up for a 5k swim in Ireland. That’s just over 3 miles, so a greater distance than last year. But most importantly, I wanted to swim faster, swim stronger, and raise plenty of money for the UK’s leading brain injury charity, Headway UK.
Scott’s plan worked perfectly in the lead up to race day. The swim training he’d devised had me peak at a good time – I was swimming the full 5k distance in practise 10 days before the race itself and feeling good.
I felt the training was so beneficial that I’ve signed up to do another 5k later this year, and I know sticking to a lot of Scott’s advice will stand me in good stead for that”
Request: Health Restoration Program
Anthony and I worked together over the course of two years to take steps towards restoring optimal health. This involved creating a comprehensive training program and meal plan without being overly restirctive. Anthony was also working very long hours and often night shifts presenting on the radio so lifestyle interventions also had to be made to make sure that we were not allowing a sedentary lifestyle to increase risk factors for avilabale health issues. Anthony achieved great results and has since moved over to Los Angeles where he leads a far healthier life than he did in London. Anthony has also been kind enough to reccomend many of his friends to my services.
This will depend on your unique scenario. Some of my clients come to me with a particular challenge they would like to overcome, others prefer the ongoing accountability and direction coaching can provide. The most typical frequency of coaching session is once per week, many people benefit from monthly calls, others benefit from a longer quarterly workshop to set goals for the next phase of the year.
