“Live Less Horizontal” is a phrase I coined on a ski trip last year…

In 2021, I left my substantive headteacher role in a large urban primary school and embarked on a quest for life-balance to bring happiness and fulfillment holistically rather than having a disproportionate work-work-work balance and no life.

Within weeks of walking away, I was in the mountains – enjoying the freedom that my soul can only find there. As it turned out, it was one of two ski holidays I took during term time in the first 4 months.

I was returning to a passion.

I had time and the headspace to remember what I loved.

As I scaled to the summits and snapped this shot before taking a leisurely ski run down the piste, I decided that I wanted to live less horizontal…

No more flat-lining my way through existence.

It was time to choose my course deliberately – a course set on holistic life fulfillment.

Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to a dream and remain committed to the goal.

Mapleleaf.Vision was founded in April 2022 off the back of the second ski trip – and here I am still living my daring dreams.

I first worked with Will whilst I was a junior member of a teaching team. I worked closely with him for around three years and he became a true mentor to me. During this time Will helped encourage me to discover my own leadership style and he mapped out what it takes to be successful. I highly recommend Will for life and career coaching.

Will is a professional, natural leader who manages to make you feel at ease. He manages to be both emphatic and encouraging, whilst also managing to challenge you to find your own answers. Will’s approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. Working with Will has allowed me to address challenges I was facing and he brought a wealth of resources and practical tools to help me set goals, clarify my values, and explore avenues right away. Even though I left teaching 5 years ago, I still seek out Will for his help and guidance and I appreciate his versatility as a thought partner, ally, and coach. Our sessions are always productive and efficiently run, which is perfect for someone who is juggling many priorities! Will brings great communication, professionalism and quality to his work and I highly recommend him as a life/business coach.

Will at Mapleleaf vision fitted me in for a last minute decision-making session that I needed to make ASAP re. a job offer / career change. He was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff! He unpicked things that I could never have done on my own. I’m so grateful to him & will be highly recommending him to everyone! Where there is a ‘Will’, there’s a way! Thank you, Will. You truly have a gift.
