Steve Roche

Life Coach & Therapist

Contact Information

I am dedicated to helping people find meaning and purpose in their lives and work, and developing the resilience to make the best of all aspects of their life.

About Me

I have been involved in wellbeing and personal development for several decades, working with groups and individuals in a wide range of contexts and organisations. My mission is to help people to understand themselves better and clear their limitations, so they can develop to full capacity and achieve their potential in life. Peer working is both an important part of my own support system and something I love to share with others.

I specialise in helping people to discover and create meaning and purpose in their lives, using a coaching programme called Discover Your Purpose. My popular book on Self-Coaching is called Get Your Ducks in a Row.

My business background includes project management and consultancy. I am a certified NLP coach and IAF-accredited facilitator, with many years experience of running courses, groups and networks.

In other parts of life I am an actor, regularly seen on Suffolk stages, with a side-line in stand-up comedy and TV quiz shows. I write for websites, blogs, books and business products: author of Action Learning: Using the Power of Group Thinking, and What's On Top? An Introduction to Co-Counselling, featured in A Coach’s Story, and writer for Alchemy Performance Assistant.

Coaching on speaking in public
“What helped? Our determination to resolve my difficulties combined with the way you tackled the issues by breaking them down into initially some very practical tools leading to working on the more 'murky' bits that are inside my head. I have 'volunteered' to do a presentation on 25 Nov. Hi, I am fine, my talk went really well, what is even more worrying I think I enjoyed it!!!!!”

Coaching - relationships
“I found you really easy to communicate with. Your empathy was obvious by the way you responded to what I was saying without my having to repeat things or explain in greater detail. You have a great ability to be able to analyse a situation and to get to the crux of a problem very quickly. You were extremely supportive and your encouragement meant a lot to me. I always felt you really wanted to help me and that it was more than just a job to you. I believe you are genuinely personally interested in your clients' progress.”

Coaching on business building
“I feel you have really helped me so much and that I now need to work on the positive ideas you have given me. My personal life is changing and I have support and someone to share my business with me so I feel that at present I do not need the June coaching call. I would love to 'leave the door open' and have the option of being in contact with you in the future. Meanwhile I will highly recommend you to my friends and contacts and thank you sincerely for all the help you have given me.”

Therapeutic coaching
“I owe you a huge great thank you for having the time and patience for me when I most needed it, for helping to put me back together, and for basically keeping me alive to be able to enjoy where I am now.”

Life coaching
“I was surprised how quickly I managed to make progress. You made very good use of the time in the coaching calls, and always got to the heart of the matter very quickly. I never felt you were trying to hurry me though, and I felt you always gave me your full undivided attention during the call. You have a great sense of humour and you are an excellent coach. Thank you for all your help.”
