Hi, I'm Lee
My name is Lee Chambers
Have you ever lost the ability to walk, with your son being 18 months old and your wife six months pregnant, and learned to walk again?
Been told that you shouldn’t set up your business because you were too young and too diverse?
Had mental health challenges but fought back to become a become a better more connected man?
I am genuinely grateful that you have visited my site. I’m passionate about making an impact in the world. I created this page so you could get a feel for the man behind the business.
My Approach to Coaching and Personal Growth
The coaching experience is unique, as individual coaches bring their talents and methods to their sessions. My approach to coaching fuses the scientific performance aspects from sports coaching, the bounty of benefits from the world of neuroscience, with the wisdom of ancient philosophers.
To put it simply, my coaching style works on deep, honest connection to unlock the potential that is inside everyone, but not always easy to identify. I then take you on a journey of understanding, allowing you to build on top of your self-discovery.
I have an intense passion for optimising my vitality, through optimal movement, nutrition and sleep. I also have the same desire to optimise my mind, through learning, business, modern philosophy and ancient intelligence. I relish the chance to enrich my clients with these principles in our sessions and watching them foster a passion for them too.
The coaching method is, at its heart, a strategic discussion between life coach and client where insights are contemplated, and goals are established. The life coach and the client are united, and the coach can become a mentor, a guide and an accountability partner.
On Becoming a Life Coach
I entered the workforce fresh out of university in 2007, straight into a finance job where I was advised the prospects were bleak due to the credit crunch.
Having felt dishearted, and realising I have to develop myself, I started the eCommerce and distribution business I still run today. This business has afforded me both the finance and the freedom to study continually and I now hold advanced qualifications in Nutrition, Sleep, Fitness and Psychology.
In 2014, I became seriously ill, spending three weeks in hospital and spending six months learning to walk again. Through all the physiotherapy and hydrotherapy, never once was I offered support for my mind, to understand the reality of chronic illness.
My illness was a turning point for me. I’ve spent the last five years studying a practising everything I’ve learned to optimise my mind, body and soul. I studied to become an Environmental Psychologist, to compliment my qualifications in Performance Nutrition and Sleep Practition. This passion is the reason you are reading this website today. I want to offer you my life’s work in an actionable and straightforward package.
Behind the Persona
Things that make me happy are: exploring nature, reading thought-provoking books, eating good food with good friends and travelling to experience new cultures.
I am passionate about my field of psychology and my research interests are positive psychology, well-being and color psychology. I am influenced by Martin Seligman, Barbara Fredrickson and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.
I have enjoyed reading the works of Jim Rohn, Marcus Aurelius and Yuval Noah Harari. My favourite film is Inception (I’m fascinated by dreams), my favourite bands are Muse and Coldplay, and my guilty pleasure is a slice or two of pizza.
