    Can't help with a coach but I can't recommend a coach enough I have one session per half term and the difference it makes is massive.

  • Simon429....can you recommend a coach ? Or have I read your response wrong thanx

    No I can't sorry if i  wasn't helpful, just making a point that I think coaching is worth its weight in gold.

  • Cheers Simon429...I'm hunting for a coach now
