CliveDreaming of a sabbatical?

Is it time for a big change?

Or do you just need a break?

Hi, my name is Clive Prout. I am The Sabbatical Coach.

I work with professionals who have achieved significant financial and career success and are at a turning point. Typically they have realized that more money will not make them happier. Many of them can see that the "Type A" personality that has driven them to be successful is not helping them be happy. They want greater meaning in their work and richer fulfillment in their relationships. They are ready to leave the trajectory of their past career to create a life which matches their unique talents and dreams.

If that sounds like you, welcome to my website. It is written for you, and my coaching services are designed for you. My purpose is to free people from misguided concepts of success (such as status and net worth) to pursue authentic happiness, contributing their unique gifts in the service of life.

sabbatical is a period away from your normal routine - a time to immerse yourself in a Rcoky Mountain Traildifferent environment, a chance to see your life from a different perspective.

Taking a break from the routine of a high pressure work life is essential if you are going to connect deeply with the dreams that can inspire you on the next stage of your journey. To create the life of your dreams, you must slow down and listen to what your heart and soul are trying to tell you.

My coaching services are individually tailored to provide a springboard to a deeply fulfilling life. If we choose to work together, I can help you:

  • Free yourself from the beliefs about success that have kept you trapped in unfulfilling work
  • Discover what is most important to you now
  • Connect with your “best self” - the person that you want to become
  • Discover the purpose that will give greater meaning to your life
  • Create a vision for what you truly want to be doing with your life
  • Develop a plan for bringing your vision into reality
  • Realize a fulfilling, successful and sustainable career
  • Make the internal and external changes necessary to generate greater happiness

I love helping people connect with their deepest dreams and turning them into reality. Read what my clients have said for a better sense of how they have benefited from working with me.

If you suspect that the work which you are currently doing is not what you want to do long term, and you have the courage to look at alternatives and choose, I want to talk with you.

Contact me to arrange a complimentary conversation and coaching session.

I want to hear what you’d rather be doing,

With love and respect,

Clive Prout
