Francis has spent over 15 years supporting young people in a wide variety of settings, both statutory and third sector. As an adopted adult with early years care experience, he is passionate about supporting children and young people who are growing up, or have grown up, away from their birth parents. As a qualified NLP coach and trainer, he has managed to translate his own personal experiences of childhood, together with his years of experience as a youth worker, to develop a model of coaching that works at a deep level, helping his clients to understand themselves, in particular their thoughts, emotions and behaviour. This enables them to generate the results that they desire in life. Francis enjoys keeping fit, reading, eating out and likes nothing more than crashing on his sofa and watching old films that remind him of his childhood years.
