We enable people to lead better lives through having better relationships at home and at work.

At Citizen Coaching CIC “We help people overcome the negative cycles in their lives using affordable, jargon free therapy. We provide face to face, group and online programmes”.

In 2005 I launched Citizen Coaching, an effective personal development programme built on a solid coaching methodology combined with Gestalt counselling. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). We became a Community Interest Company in 2011.

– My ‘flagship’ programme, Citizen Anger Management, helps hundreds of adults and young people every year discover ‘a life less angry’.

– ‘Compass’ helps people in recovery from drugs and alcohol see possibility and change in their lives and better engage with support services, including Probation and their local treatment provider.

– Birmingham Counselling Services provides over 3000 counselling sessions a year – nearly 1000 of them free or low cost.

An independent evaluation of Citizen Anger Management found a positive feedback score of 93% and an effectiveness score of 89.5% 6 months after taking the course. 9/10 people said that taking our anger management course had made a dramatic difference to their lives.

Citizen Anger Management with young people had a social return on investment of £7-£13 for every £1 invested. This was achieved through a reduction in homelessness, fewer criminal justice interventions, less access to medical services, a re-engagement with work and training and increased well-being.
