About me

My name is I-Lan Hamilton,  I am a qualified Personal Performance Life Coach, Youth Impact Coach and Personal Development Trainer. I live with my family in between Cirencester and Stroud in the beautiful Cotswold countryside.

My background

Both my parents come from very different geographical and cultural backgrounds. From an early age, this has given me deep insight into the diversity of human life, how society generates the value systems that we live by and how our beliefs determine our behaviour. People have many differences which are what makes us unique, but we are fundamentally the same. We all have thoughts, feelings, desires, fears, wants and needs. Ultimately humanity is the common thread that binds us together. With this greater awareness and knowledge I understood that I could be truly proud of my heritage but that my background did not have to determine my destiny.

My philosophy in life is that we always have a choice in any given situation, even when it looks and feels like we haven't. Once we realise and understand this, we can harness the power within us to take charge of our lives and create the life we say we want.

Having graduated from Surrey University with an honours degree in English Literature and Dance, I then went on to work for a number of large corporations fulfilling a variety of roles from Recruitment and HR to PR and Marketing Communications.

Throughout my life I have naturally taken on the role of confidante and advisor. I am passionate about helping people to see and reach their full potential. With my positive attitude and forward-thinking approach, I believe my ability to intuitively connect with people has given me the privilege to inspire and empower others. Taking a career break to start a family and bring up my two young children, I had the time to identify how I could turn my skills and passion into a career. The rest is history.

I trained and qualified with the Coaching Academy - the largest school for coaching in the UK - gaining a Diploma with Distinction in Personal Performance Coaching and a Diploma with Distinction in Youth Impact Coaching. I am truly passionate and excited about coaching and what it can do for people. I have seen with my own clients and indeed for myself how the process of coaching allows a person to reconnect with themselves and can bring about some amazing changes to instil confidence, self-belief and drive so that people can live a happier and healthier life.

It is my strong belief that the youth of today are our future. Hence, I find it immensely rewarding to coach young people and in particular teenagers going through transition.
Alongside personal coaching, I also work as an independent trainer in partnership with various charities and organisations. My work in this area enables me to reach and inspire larger groups of people, through creating and delivering personal development/soft skills workshops and life-changing programmes for business, adults and young people.
