“If you take care of the small things,
the big things take care of themselves.
Gain more control over your life
by paying closer attention to the little things.”

– Emily Dickinson, poet

“Working with Stephen was something else. He held space for me to tap into a truly authentic and deeply honest version of myself, and guided me through a journey that really helped me understand my values and how to use them to make challenging life decisions at a key inflection point in my life. I felt so "seen" by Stephen whenever we spoke: he both allowed me to be my complete self whilst also challenging me on some of the stories I was telling myself. I'd highly recommend Stephen as a coach.”
