“Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get”

Have you ever found yourself questioning your purpose?

I’m Neil Reeves, a transformational life coach based in Dorset and Hampshire, UK.

I grew up in a quiet town called Dorchester, Dorset. This town was the birthplace of the famous author “Thomas Hardy”, but it also gave birth to my own story.

As a child, life for me was difficult. Growing up, I endured childhood abuse, which lead me in my adult life, to embark on a mission to never see it happen again. However, despite this, at times I became unclear on what my purpose was and where I wanted to be in life.

At the age of 30, I thought I had found my calling: to study to become a nurse. However, this was not to be. I was diagnosed with epilepsy, bringing about a new set of challenges for me to face. I fell into depression and had low self-esteem; I literally had no idea where I was going.

(I’m not here to sell you a sad story, but what I am trying to say is that we are all human and things happen in life that are out of our control.)

Picking myself up, I took a job in education, working with post-16 students, which, over time, allowed my confidence to return again.

With my new-found confidence, I decided to study to become a certified life coach and turn my negative experiences in to something positive. As an experienced life coach, I am able to help other people struggling in their own lives, to overcome their own road-blocks and live the lives they deserve and I now know that I have truly found my purpose.

I won’t lie, it takes guts to overcome challenges in life. But my job is to help you during those challenges, to help you see that we all have the ability to become the greatest version of ourselves.

You don’t need to suffer in silence.

I am here today to help you overcome challenges and achieve your goals to become all you truly want to be.

I’m dedicated to helping you achieve a successful outcome…whatever ‘success’ means to you.


“If you worry about yesterday’s failures, then today’s success will be few.”

You have the strength to overcome anything.

“You are the only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life.”

Do you remember that famous line in Forest Gump? That quote has brought so much meaning to many areas of my life!
