Your Journey TO THE FLOURISHING LIFE
As an alignment coach I help people like you to achieve massive results using my four pillars of life change:
All life change has to begin with an unadulterated commitment to truth. I help my clients to realise the power that comes when we ask honest questions with a genuine desire to find out the answer, no matter how inconvenient that answer may be.
No personal or life change is easy, and if it were then it wouldn't be worth it. I help my clients to reconnect with the part of themselves that not only knows how to turn chaos into order, but also loves doing it.
When the time is right I help my clients to get extreme clarity about the person who they know they could be and should be but aren't. At this stage they design their own personal ideal and commit to aiming at it with the mission being to get as close to embodying that ideal as possible.
We've now created a game plan and we're committed to change, so it's time for massive execution. I hold my clients accountable to stay on the path towards their ideal so that they can learn just how strong they really are.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
"Simon has all the traits of an excellent life coach."
I have been a client of Simon's for well over a year. Simon has all the traits of an excellent life coach; he is an active listener and gives me the time and space to say what I needed during our sessions. His coaching approach is not prescriptive, but I've always left the session with a clear idea of what I need to work on afterwards. He has a pragmatic approach with his advice, so it is not all rigorously Stoic, but blended with common sense and objective neutrality. Over my time with Simon I feel that I have progressed up the curve of personal development; his support and provision of accountability has been invaluable.
"I cannot recommend Simon more highly."
It is not often that I reach out to folks on the internet to get some help clarifying thoughts as well as dealing with real world issues... It was a pleasure to get some help discussing and reviewing my personal philosophy, and the times we discussed real life situations and learning to apply stoic principals were the most helpful. I cannot recommend Simon more highly.

"I genuinely look forward to our conversations..."
I started working with Simon at the start of this year and it has been awesome to have a dialogue with someone so dedicated to helping other people excel. It’s rare to get candid feedback on one’s direction in life and Simon has been able to provide that in a way that both prompts me to think critically and encourages me to keep striving. I genuinely look forward to our conversations and value the insight gained from them.
ARE WE THE RIGHT FIT?
I agree. There are way too many coaches out there. I do this because I'm passionate about helping people to achieve better results in their lives, and to me it's an absolute privilege to help people every day.
Because of this, I suggest that there are some important questions that should be considered before we work together.
- Do I naturally resonate with you, and do you naturally resonate with me?
- Are you willing to invest in your own personal growth and development?
- Are you 100% committed to seeing positive changes in your mindset and life?
WHAT ELSE ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
"I have felt inspired and challenged."
Simon is a very wise, kind and gentle soul. He is so easy to talk to. In my sessions with him I have felt inspired and challenged. He gives me practical advice and tasks to do to help me along my journey. I'm very grateful.
"Simon is chill, kind, and extremely insightful..."
I’ve been working with Simon for about a month and a half and can’t overstate how much of a positive impact it’s had on my day-to-day life and my overall well-being. I got to know Simon as a listener of the Practical Stoic Podcast because I loved how simple, straightforward... and well... practical his advice was. Now working with Simon personally I’m given more of these practical tools, but customized and tailored for my own personal life and situations. I’ve struggled for a long time with a general sense of dissatisfaction over my goals and my mental well-being, but Simon helped me to clearly define who it is I want to be, clearly define what action is required to get there, and now we’re in the process of meeting weekly to discuss what’s going well, what habits and thought patterns are holding me back, and what concrete action I can take to break down walls. Something that’s been great about Simon which sets him apart from my experiences with other coaches and therapists is we don’t spend any unnecessary time focused on negative aspects of my life, or delving into baggage and past events that can often result in digging up unhelpful emotions. We simply talk through what’s happening and solidify ways to make things better. It’s given me a clear head and a stronger will to make the most of life, and although anyone’s journey is a long one I already feel an amazing amount of joy and satisfaction that I’m now taking control of my life rather than letting life happen to me. Simon is chill, kind, and extremely insightful and I’d recommend him to anyone who’s simply wanting to improve themselves and live a more fulfilling life.
Frequently Asked Questions
Not sure if coaching is right for you? Got some questions? I'm an open book. Let's talk.
As an alignment coach my goal is to help my clients to first define their own personal ideal - the person they know they could be and should be - and then I help them to order their life in such a way that every day brings them closer into alignment with that personal ideal.
I've been offering coaching since late 2018 and since then I've worked with individuals from the USA, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Panama, South Korea, Norway, Sweden, Germany and the United Kingdom. I've been fortunate enough to work with doctors, engineers, business executives, mothers, fathers, professors, and church ministers.
Looking back on this I consider myself to be extremely fortunate to have worked with so many incredible people doing great things around the world, and I think the only thing I can put this down to is the fact that I'm a real person trying to understand important questions in life, and I simply love people. My clients build a relationship with me via my writings and podcasts and the transition into coaching is always seamless for them.
My experience also comes from the fact that I'm not only a coach. I'm also a musician, a personal trainer, a husband, a trail runner and an avid learner. Life is to be experienced, and we who experience it tend to attract each other. I hope you and I can meet soon as well!
The initial consultation is a chance for you and I to get to know each other. It's a no-obligation call where we can discuss your specific goals, challenges and opportunities, and I can take you through some finer details around the kind of coaching that I offer.
Although the majority of my clients reside in the USA I do offer local face-to-face coaching. I find that it's also often nice to spend time with a client on a hike, at the beach, or at a local cafe where we can be outside in the fresh air.
No problem! I'm always happy to work with new people, but if it's not the right time then I completely understand. Still feel free to book in your initial consultation and we might be able to come up with a game plan if this is something you're mentally ready for but simply don't have the time or resources to begin.
MY PROMISE TO YOU
I take my role as a coach very seriously, and it's very important to me that I continually add extreme value to my clients in every single session. If at any point in our sessions you decide that you're not completely satisfied, I'll refund 100% of your fees.
Are You Ready?
Not sure whether my coaching is right for you or not? Well here's my dirty secret: me neither!
The free initial consultation isn't a sales pitch. It's a no-obligation call where I can get to know you and your goals, and then we can decide whether or not we're the right fit for each other. Let's talk!
I'm an alignment coach, podcast host, musician, trail runner, husband and a local to the Sunshine Coast in Australia.
