'Therapeutic care & Personal Development - The solution to your problems is in you'

BoatLife Coaching Glasgow, Falkirk and Edinburgh

Choice of Male or Female accredited Life Coach!

Life Coaching is often portrayed as a wonderful "cure all" that is supposed to be able to fix almost anything! Unfortunately despite the misleading claims of some high pressure sales types, it is not quite so magical.

Life Coaching is however a highly effective form of training orientated self help and therapy. It belongs to the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy school of training and therapy.

Both coaches have externally accredited awards in coaching to recognised national standards (from Qualification and Curriculum Authority recognised awarding bodies)  and are fellows of the Society of Holistic Therapists anc Coaches.

Life Coaching combines:

  • Perceptual change: Change how you feel about things, this removes blocks and errors in thinking.
  • Behavioural Change: Change how you behave in certain situations, and even generally.
  • New skills: learn to manage time better, reduce or channel stress, optimise planning and skills, adapt emotions and feelings.

When you combine the above within a context of promoting life balance and dealing with any underlying problems therapeutically you have an extremely powerful change and personal development tool.

Life Coaching is sometimes used as a response to issues that have arisen. Ideally it should be used by anyone under pressure, stress or with a "lot on their plates" as a proactive support system before problems arise.

Life coaching is effective for a range of issues including:

  • Stopping destructive behaviours like self sabotage and addictions
  • Controlling weight more effectively
  • Nutrition and exercise management
  • Personal Development
  • Well being and enjoyment
  • Anger and Stress management
  • Gaining positive life balance
  • Making the most out of what you have
  • Happier relationships
  • Sales and motivation
  • Self confidence and self image
  • Managing persistent conditions, illnesses and problems as part of a care plan.
  • Goal setting and within reason getting what you want in life.
  • Stop being held back by defence mechanisms, toxic thought patterns and old fears.

In summary Life Coaching is not some "wonder method". It is a combination of tried and tested tools and methods from a range of training and therapy sources. When put together it enables you to make the best of what you have, and to get more where possible.

Be proactive

If you have a lifestyle that is challenging or stressful, or if you simply feel under pressure, it makes sense to have life coaching support on a regular basis, perhaps one session per one or two months. This provides support and a way of "off loading", as well as providing an opportunity to have proactive responses to problems.

Where issues do arise, whether you have a regular life coach or not, seek support early on and take control of the situation before it takes control of you!

Life Coaching is at it's most effective when clients engage in sessions early on, preventing issues from arising, or to maximise performance before problems can become entrenched.

We have City Centre bases in Edinburgh and Glasgow and we are considering expanding into other cities shortly.


We are complementary health practitioners, not alternative health practitioners. This means that we work WITH the medical profession. If you have an illness or injury, or if you are going to embark on a new diet, fitness plan or if you have any uninvestigated symptoms, you must consult your medical doctor. 

Stuart has written a range of courses relating to coaching, CBT, anger and stress management including a Life Coaching professional training course (level 4 Award) and a CBT professional training course (Level 5 Award). 

Please note that the above awards were ASET accredited until Jan 09. Since Jan 09 they have been dual awards with a diploma from Stonebridge Associated Colleges, and also leading to an award certificate at the appropriate level from NCFE.

Stuart personally has completed ASET awards including ASET Level 3 Life Skills Coaching and an NVQ C25 Coaching Unit as well as a full NVQ Level 4 in Training and Development. He has a MSc Psychology. In a pastoral or spiritual context he has also been awarded a Doctorate (D.Phil) in (Pastoral) Life Coaching from the Interfaith Seminary which was awarded following submission of comprehensive writings and course materials over a number of years. These course materials and writings have been published in another format in the UK as externally accredited practitioner training programmes (leading to certification by a QCA approved awarding body).

Denise has completed extensive counselling and life coaching training and holds an ASET Level 4 in Advanced Life coaching.

The NOS Life Coaching in the Workplace only really apply to work- based coaching and mentoring work. Therefore the more applicable NOS at this time are the 1995 NOS Counselling, and the broad ranging NOS Healing.
