My story


My life coaching journey by Dr Dave Wood accredited life coach Wirral UK


Meet your life coach Dr Dave Wood (PhD).

I am an experienced and fully qualified life coach and an accredited member of the Association for Coaching. My experience of suffering with depression has informed my passion to see people liberated from the issues which hold them back in life and prevent them reaching their full potential.

Dr Dave Wood, Founder of Realign Coaching - life coach uk


Simply managing our problems does not set us free.

I am a former Senior Probation Officer with over 18 years experience working with the marginalised, disadvantaged and people who are struggling with a variety of complex issues.

Through life coaching I have helped people move forward from a sense of feeling lost and unhappy. I've also helped people in recovery from issues of abuse, addiction and mental health struggles enabling them to improve their wellbeing and rebuild a meaningful life.

In addition to my work as a life coach I also provide social, community and life coach training through the social enterprise Metanoeo CIC of which I am the founder and a director. I also lecture at postgraduate and undergraduate level in subjects including psychosocial and community wellbeing. As well as being a member of the Association for Coaching, I am also a community member of Forum Housing Association.
