Your Life Coach -

Andrew Plant is the Director and Life Coach of Life Coach Today

 Personal Biography

 I am a  professional Life Coach.

My life has been very much based around family, work and sport. Life experiences include being a loving son to my Mum and Dad, a loving partner to Sarah and an equally loving father of two teenagers, Zac and Maddy. Work has primarily been twenty years as a Teacher and eight years as a successful Head Teacher in Shropshire, working in the areas of mainstream education and independent SEN schools  – with patience, forward thinking and the ability to listen being high on the list of learning!

The part of my career in education that I really enjoyed the most was actually sitting 1:1 with young people and colleagues, discussing their futures and helping them to improve their lives by putting the past to one side and concentrating on the present and the future. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I decided to make a career out of it and became a Life Coach who would be accessible both online for those further afield and for 1:1 face to face sessions for the people of Shropshire.

For forty-two of my fifty years on the planet I have been a well-controlled Type 1 diabetic, learning how to live with a condition which can be limiting if it is allowed to be so. I was also a competitive sportsman until a failing body determined otherwise. Dealing with the daily life of a diabetic and the frustration of no longer being able to take part in my much loved sports has helped me to understand and empathise with other people in similar positions
