About Me

FULLY BOOKED UNTIL JANUARY 2023.

I'm Kevin Gallagher, an experienced Level 5 (City & Guilds) Life Coach and Mentor for young people and teenagers. I teach success in Wellbeing, Home life, Travel, Practical Skills, Social Skills and Finance. My clients include celebrities and royal families.

My true passion is mentoring teenagers, preparing them for modern life and helping them through a crisis or difficult circumstances. I'm currently available in London and Brighton but I'm also considering positions outside of the UK, due to the easing of travel restrictions.

My program is usually session based and are typically 2 hours in duration, although I can be booked on a daily, weekly, or full time basis.

I help teenagers master the life skills needed to find their own way, by preparing them for independence outside of the family home.

I can provide excellent references from several families and young people.

You may wish to visit my website for more information.

I'm qualified, experienced and professional. I can provide excellent references. Please read my extensive career which is available on my CV.

Please get in touch so we can schedule a call. Thank you!!
