Stephen Woolston, life coach and NLP trainer

About me

I have been there. Stressed. Anxious. Overwhelmed.

I got to the point where I was ready to invest in the journey to change all that and I’m so glad I did. Now I’m looking to connect with other people who are at the same place that I was then.

My background

I am a professional coach, trainer and coaching mentor with over 27 years’ experience working in large, high pressure corporate environments.

I started coaching in 2005 and started a professional practice in 2006.

My early coaching work was traditional business coaching incorporating Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). I started out running workshops, coaching individuals and executives and delivering NLP training alongside my consulting career.

My coaching

Over the years, my coaching style has evolved a lot. It has been greatly influenced by:

My work today is still about success, but with a spiritual and self care angle. I am not interested in success without wellness. I don’t believe in the old idea of chasing success in order to become happy. I believe in working on our success projects because we’re happy.

I live in Maidstone and work internationally through Zoom video conferencing.

Brief career highlights

My teachers

My teachers over the many years I’ve studied are as diverse as they are distinguished:

Stephen is one of those few who continuously searches for new ideas. He asks intelligent questions and can figure out his own answers as well. Plus he is a great guy. Give yourself a chance and meet him.
