His personal approach immediately sets a comfortable presence, yet his focused demeanour facilitates productive coaching.

“Through my coaching with Stephen, I realised my passion for chillies. I then had the idea of producing chilli sauce. I find coaching is great for opening up your mind and sometimes just allowing yourself to think positively and step by step planning your route to your goal. I now run a successful company making and selling a range of chilli sauces.”
