Mark believes everyone has the ability to feel happier, healthier and more fulfilled in their lives. They just need to learn how. His greatest passion is helping his clients grow and realise the life they want to live. Mark lives in Saint-Germain-en-Laye in the outskirts of Paris with his French wife and a young son. He is a Professional performance coach, who loves helping others to live their lives to the fullest potential.

Mark started out his career as a dispensing Pharmacist in the UK and made a deliberate career shift 17 years ago to retrain and provide a different kind of support as a personal life coach. Then 7 years ago he decided to combine his twin passions for coaching and golf through becoming a mental game performance coach. Using his skills as an experienced coach along with a variety of techniques he has given golfers around the world including several PGA Tour players and French national team players the skills they need to improve their focus, their emotional stability and their game. It was during this time while working with junior golfers that Mark realised how his coaching was helping them in many areas of their lives apart from their golf.

Tools for Success

Of course stress and performance aren’t just an issue in golf. Many of Mark’s younger clients told him the strategies he had given them were also helping them deal with issues in their wider lives: many of the tools for success in sport are the same for success in life. The realisation he could help teenagers and young adults at a difficult and confusing time of their lives inspired him to develop coaching services for young people. By building a strong rapport and a high level of trust with his clients, he enables them to make the changes they want. He believes in his clients and creates a space where they can start to believe in themselves – the first step towards real transformation.
