“Hi, my name is Luke, I have a passion for helping others to create positive change in their lives. I previously worked in retail for over 16 years, leading and coaching teams of people for some of the world’s leading motor companies.
From a young age, I struggled with anxiety and a lack of confidence, and without the proper help and awareness, this continued into my adult life. In 2018 I was at a really low point in my life, lacking the skills to manage my emotions and becoming increasingly joyless. I came to the realisation that negative childhood experiences and behaviours had seriously affected my mental health, but with the correct support was able to create a new positive outlook.
I have since achieved a Level 2 in Counselling Skills and am now a fully qualified Practitioner in NLP, Timeline Therapy and Hypnotherapy. This new knowledge has helped me notice similar cycles in my own children’s well-being and act appropriately so that it does not become more serious later in life.
Being a coach for Happy Confident Kids helps me equip children and young people with new life skills to manage their emotions better, resolve anxiety and grow in confidence every single day.” Coach – Luke

“Luke has been brilliant with my 12 year old son. Anxiety and anger caused him to struggle with school; and social environments. Luke has given him tools to manage this and it has made a real difference.”
“Thank you so much. I was super nervous of how he would be. He really loved it and asked when we can do it again, so that is really positive! I am very grateful and we will definitely be practising everyday!”
“It was a really good session last week thank you! We have been able to draw a lot form it!”
