Know yourself, understand others
The Coaching Package
You're feeling like your life is not quite in the place you want it to be. You might not be sure what coaching can offer, you But recognise that you would value someone alongside you to help you figure it all out.
Your current situation is taking a toll on the way you feel, how you interact and communicate with others, and how you live your life.
Most of our male clients tell us that it is an issue with work that is the main problem. Whether you have lost enthusiasm and focus for a role you are in, are unhappy with changes or cultures at work, or had the realisation that the career you are in just isn't where you want to be for the rest of your life.
It's totally understandable that this impacts your 'everyday' life too. From lack of time and energy to do and be the person, you want to be (or used to be).
Or noticing that your mood and motivation are impacting your relationships, family roles, parenting style, or social connections.
Fearing that you're wasting time, energy and missing out on opportunities to live your life aligned with what you value and who you want to be.
Feeling stuck about these issues, can leave you feeling isolated and lonely.
The men we work with also realise that all this frustration and confusion with your current situation is having an impact on your mental health. Whether you've long-term experience with issues like depression, stress, and/or anxiety. Or perhaps this is a new experience for you, and you want to know what and how you can feel and think differently.
Exploring coaching might be stepping way outside of your comfort zone or something you keep procrastinating about.
Because you either don't believe you 'should' be asking for help. Or you are unsure what and how it could help someone like you.
To ensure I am the best person to help you, that we can work together, and that you are ready to make the time and commit to creating change. I offer a FREE confidential discovery call/zoom. A chance for us to talk things through, ask questions, share the practicalities, and either decide to work together or agree that something else might be a better fit (I'll always signpost you to other options if I don't think Where the Mind Grows is the best solution for you).

The old way told you, you were different. And we celebrate that difference and see it as an important contribution to growing societal good.

Hi I'm JK, Coach and Founder of Where the Mind Grows
It won't take long for you to realise that I LOVE NATURE. Even outside of work, I am usually doing something connected to nature or outdoor adventure.
Its been something that has enhanced my own health and happiness and I love to share this approach with clients too.
I love to 'geek out' on neuroscience and how our brain works, sharing this knowledge in a real-life, accessible way.
I work best with men, who don't see themselves fitting in the 'alpha-male' gender type. Nor do you want to be that type of man.
The men I coach value equity, feel and think deeply and want to experience the opportunities the world has to offer.
I help you to discover more about yourself and the world. And create choices and opportunities that will help you feel confident, clear on where you are heading and with a plan of how to get there.
I see each of the clients I work with for the amazing and unique human that you are! No one session is the same, because neither are you!
I am open, relaxed yet direct in my coaching style. I work with people who are ready to change, you just aren't sure how you do it.
Nature is a great back drop to create change. From the mind and body benefits. Reducing stress and healing the body. It also help your brain to create hormones that support creativity, focus, problem solving and courage. All a great combination for personal development and coaching.
Nature also offers us a chance to move, interact with the surrounds and not feel boxed in.
In the woodland you can see deer, hare, birds of prey, woodpecker, stoat, squirrels and toads. to name a few
