About us: We are confidence and self-esteem coaching meetup. We coach people to accomplish the things that are most important to them with confidence and full self-esteem, whatever the circumstances. This could be career development, changing careers, starting a business, getting into a relationship, developing a social life or anything else which matters to people. We help many people with issues such as anxiety, social anxiety, lack of confidence/self-esteem and depression to be free and do amazing things in spite of those issues.
Everyone says they want to be free, but very few actually do anything about it, especially anything that works. We work with the few that do want to be free and are willing to work for making the results happen.
The idea is to create a community which will give you the strong push you need to move while creating a very supportive nurturing environment for you to produce powerful results that are beyond what you could accomplish on your own but do it for real instead of talking incessantly about it.
Please note: In In this Meetup, we offer help via coaching workshops and social events. To be able to get value from this group you have to attend events and coaching sessions and willing to talk to us the organisers so we can get to know you and you can get to know us. So, we need to speak to everyone who wants to join us before we accept them as a member.
Our vision is that all human beings experience aliveness and freedom and take responsibility for the world that they want to live in.
Our Mission Transforming lives and developing leaders with a purpose.
Our Purpose To support people to accomplish the things that are most important to them, whatever the circumstances.

We as a community will give you the strong push you need to be able to move forward while creating a very supportive, nurturing environment for you to produce powerful results that are beyond what you could accomplish on your own.
My name is Chris, I used to be incredibly shy and anxious in social situations, and self-conscious of my eczema.
In 2010 after a particularly unpleasant time I really took on the challenge of starting to live my life my way and take my life on, so I joined a coaching group that Ken was running in Central London. While coming into London and making a great group of new friends I also developed myself personally using a few tools and techniques Ken was coaching people on. Through this work I began to take on the things I was really passionate about. I talked a lot about going into politics but never did anything about it. I talked a lot about wanting to be in a relationship but I didn't do anything about it. So I committed to it and took on being a politician and taking on the rest of my life as well.
In 2014 Local Elections I was elected as a Councilor in Kingston, SW London. Since then I have left full-time employment to spend more time out in the community, working on projects that interest me, and leading workshops. I'm really passionate about other people getting freed up from the things that stop them and taking on their lives. And yes now I am in a committed relationship with a wonderful woman I also met through this work.
Hi my name is Ken, In 1984 I arrived in the UK as a student from Sri Lanka, fresh faced and shy with a high burden of expectation by my parents, I was called an alien and it was very alienating and failing all my exams because I was dyslexic which I didn’t know at the time, was hard to deal with failure after failure followed with some successes and I became more and more withdrawn, shy and alone. Then, in 1995, I did a course which changed my life, instead of being a victim of my circumstances I decided to take on my problems head on and over time became a qualified Shiatsu practitioner and a coach. In April 2010 I was offered an opportunity to create some workshops for a local voluntary organization supporting people with shyness, anxiety, low self-esteem, and depression and it grew from 4 people in the 1st session to hundreds of people participating in my workshops and permanently altered the lives of many people out of shyness, social anxiety and depression until December 2011. I realised then that the material and practices I am creating can have a big impact on transforming anyone’s life and I wanted to make an income from this work and do it full time. I separated from that company and set up on my own in January 2012 and in 8 years it has grown quite strongly. Now we coach professionals in business, careers, and life to make life work and be leaders and produce amazing results.
We started this new meetup group 6 years ago because we wanted to get back to where we started from and do what we did then, as in the current form of my company, coaching is aimed at the commercial market. We want to create this group to meet up with people who would like to deal with their self-esteem and confidence issues and meet regularly and support them to overcome those issues and start helping people to live productively, fulfilled lives by creating programmes, events, and opportunities for people to participate in.
I am confident and at ease running two businesses and networking with other confident and successful business leaders. I am 56 but going on 40, I travel the world and love socialising with a great group of friends I've met over the years from coaching, and organising social activities like sky-diving and just meeting people which used to terrify me more than sky-diving, but not now!
