Tom Gold Life Coach

I don’t meditate, I’m not big into mindfulness, I won’t use up time on our sessions with long thoughtful pauses and I only work with people who know what they want. That might be in terms of their relationship, their job. It might be personal goals like being more assertive or sticking to an exercise regime or it could be spending more time with loved ones. If you know what it is and you're prepared to go after it we should talk. I’ve spent the last 20 years of my life working with groups and individuals who are all either facing significant challenges in their lives or wanting to make some significant changes. Along the way I've dealt with a few of my own including a deep level of anxiety about noisy crowded places, supermarkets, airports, shopping centres, the cinema. A couple of years ago it brought my life to a virtual standstill and on reflection I wish I'd been able to talk about it but at the time I couldn't. Please understand that I'm not afraid to ask the difficult questions and I may well challenge you on some of your assumptions but always in a professional and friendly manner. I will also hold you to account on the changes you commit to making because they will get you where you want to be. I have an ICF accredited Diploma in Transformational Life Coaching, an Honours degree in Psychology and I’m also a qualified Bushcraft Instructor. I use social media but I don't live there. If you want to get in touch my contact details are below. Email works and so does a plain old phone call. No obligation, no hard sell.

What do you love most about your job?

Being there for the ‘double fist pull-down’ moment when they succeed. That might sound like a convenient answer but it has got me through some difficult times. However bad my day has been, even a small success for one of clients can put a completely different spin on it.

What inspired you to start your own business?

A great deal of the work I've done has involved meeting people facing significant challenges in their lives; offenders, excluded pupils, combat veterans, forensic psychiatric clients in secure accommodation as well as people dealing with a variety of mental health issues, not least of all the stigma attached to having them. At the time the roles that I fulfilled did not involve talking therapy in a formal sense. However I’d always been very flattered that my clients wanted to talk and I’d always enjoyed hearing their stories. Coaching provided a means to have that dialogue in a more structured way which recognised not just their journey but desired outcomes and the steps in between. I’ve enjoyed it a lot! My Coaching journey proper started with Animas Coaching school who at the time were making their first foray into Scotland. I qualified in the summer of 2018.

Why should our clients choose you?

One of my skills that my clients comment on most frequently is noticing and remembering small but significant details about their story. It enables me to keep a number of potentially critical elements close to the surface and also demonstrates that I’m listening to every word they say.

As a man who had a traditional upbringing himself and who spent a lot of years nailing the lid shut on how he felt I can recognise the limitations - and occasional merits - of ‘the man code’. While I fully recognise that it’s good to talk, I’ve learned that it’s not going to happen just because it needs to happen or because it’s a trending hashtag.

Perhaps my best skill is my ability to help people recognise and acknowledge their entitlement to simple things like being successful, being treated fairly and being happy.

Life Coaching FAQs

Expand all

Your professional life coach will be able to advise you on the full range of coaching available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted life coach today.

You can have as many or as few life coaching sessions as you like. Many life coaches operate over the phone or via the internet so the sessions can easily fit around your schedule. Some people hire a life coach once every few months, some people have a session once a week.

Life coaching sessions will typically last up to an hour. Often after an initial assessment, sessions can be conducted over the phone, face to face, over email, via Skype/Zoom and occasionally through instant messaging.

During the session, your life coach will ask you a number of questions, such as what you want to achieve in life, what areas you're unhappy with and where you'd like to see yourself in the future. Although a life coach will work with you, it’s often up to you to challenge or reflect upon certain ideas you have to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don't feel comfortable with and all sessions will be confidential.

Life coaching is focused on your present and your future. Coaching accepts your current reality and looks to improve your outcome moving forward. Life coaches are not health professionals and they do not diagnose you. By contrast, therapy focuses on your past and looks to delve into past actions and patterns. It is analytical but not action-oriented.

Most mainstream health insurance providers do not cover the costs of life coaching because it is not considered a mental health profession in the same way therapists and counsellors are.

Life coaches do not need to have any formal or academic qualifications but you may want to look for life coaches who possess an industry-specific qualification, such as the Life Coaching Diploma or Personal Performance Diploma (PPD).

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which shows you reviews from past customers who have used their life coaching services.

A life coach is a trained professional who aims to help and guide individuals to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. They support clients on a journey to rediscover their own strength and abilities. This can include excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled at home, exploring your potential, managing health conditions and achieving life ambitions.

By harnessing techniques based on core psychological principles and intuition, life coaches empower clients and provide a toolkit of teachings to confidently face difficult challenges and overcome emotional barriers.

Life coaches can specialise in one of these particular areas of coaching: career coaching, executive business, group coaching, health and wellbeing, performance management, personal development, relationships, retirement, spiritual and youth coaching.

Rapport is one of the most important parts of life coaching. If you feel uncomfortable with your professional, you are unlikely to gain much from the session. It is advisable to get in contact before you book a session to meet your life coach so you can gauge how comfortable you are in their presence. It is worth talking to a few potential life coaches and ask questions.

Yes! As long as you have a strong internet connection, then your life coach can deliver sessions via an online video chat platform. Alternatively, it can be done over the phone.
