Hi.  I’m Thomas Hattersley, The Work Life Coach, and I practice holistic life coaching and executive life coaching…

As a certified Life Coach, my mission is to help you unlock your full potential for success in work and maximum happiness in life. If you feel stuck on your journey and don’t know how to move forward, you’re in the right place.

I have a passion for helping people overcome adversity and enabling them to fly.  My clients say I see possibilities where others see issues; I help them to navigate the right path when the route is unclear.

My Life Coaching programmes are built on more than rhetoric, passion, and positivity, though.

I have real business experience and a deep understanding of the mind. With this knowledge, I help you get unstuck and unlock your full potential.  Through my personalised coaching programmes, you get clarity and focus on where you want to be. Together, we create a road map to get you there.

Business coaching for a better working life

Over my 25-year career, I’ve worked my way up from a technical apprenticeship, to a member of senior management, and finally a managing director.  As a business consultant, I’ve helped large firms save millions. I’ve also transformed low-performing businesses into high-performing powerhouses.

I’m no stranger to working hard for results; I’ve experienced the highs of success. I’ve also been through the lows it can bring, including stress and anxiety.

I pair my business experience with my training as a certified Master Life Coach to help you reach those highs whilst avoiding the lows.

My coaching programmes are based on structured, outcome-focused processes. These help you set goals and create a clear, actionable plan to achieve them.  This way, you’re supported and focused on what you really want. That could include: moving into a leadership role, preparing for a career change or growing your business.

If you feel stuck in a rut or want change but don’t know where to start, as The Work Life Coach I’m here to help.

Coaching to create a mindset for success

I can help you get where you want to be without sacrificing your health, happiness or relationships.  That’s because I understand that mindset is critical to balancing work, life, health, and wealth.  With a deep understanding of how the mind works, I can unlock your hidden potential.

I’m a Master Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and a Master Clinical Hypnotherapist. This means I can break down mental blocks that are holding you back.

Working on a subconscious level, I can release you from anxiety.  I can also help you rebuild your self-confidence, which is essential to success and happiness.  With these same techniques, you can overcome addictive behaviours and conquer your fears and phobias.

As a certified Life Coach, Master NLP Practitioner, and Hypnotherapist, I can help you surmount anything stopping you from leading a better working life.

Coaching with integrity

There are many coaches out there who claim they can change your life; some with no or dodgy credentials.  I’m a Senior Member of Accredited Counsellors, Coaches, Psychotherapists and Hypnotherapists (ACCPH). That means you can be confident I’ve been vetted, am insured, and hold recognised qualifications.

Along with my certifications in Life Coaching, NLP and Hypnotherapy, I earned an MBA in 2009. The degree was awarded with distinction and my dissertation received the highest result in the history of the business school. I have the qualifications, experience and integrity to help you overcome any obstacle, in business or in life, that holds you back.

My Life Coaching programmes are tailored to professionals, entrepreneurs, and even top-performing athletes.  Wherever you are in your journey to success, you can unlock your full potential at work and in life.  Click the button below to learn how to get started today.

"I’ve struggled with confidence up until Tom asked me about my past my history and my achievements..."


"I’m clearer than ever on what I have to offer and all thanks to that ultimate set of questions."
