I’m John Hannon, founder of Change and Evolve. Earlier in my professional life I worked for large corporations in various IT and project management roles. In 2003 I resigned my job with Merrill Lynch to work for myself as an executive coach, trainer and consultant. To develop my coaching skills, I studied for a Masters in Professional Coaching degree with i-coach academy accredited by Middlesex University. Since then I have worked with a range of corporate clients including Alcatel-Lucent, Addleshaw Goddard, Save the Children, ITV and M&G. My focus was helping leaders be more effective.
During this time I was dissatisfied with my health. I found it harder to handle stress and I had various ailments including intermittent tinnitus. I started researching health and fitness and since late 2013 I have followed a genetically-aligned diet and lifestyle. The many small changes I made have transformed my health.
In 2016 I decided to combine my coaching skills, my growing knowledge about health and fitness, and my own experience of optimising my health, into becoming a health and wellness coach. I work with people over 55 years of age who want to be the best that they can be. Traditionally, the last three decades of a person’s life have been seen as an inexorable decline. It doesn’t have to be this way. I believe that for most people, this can be a time of great opportunity. However, maximising that opportunity means optimising one’s physical, mental and spiritual health.
We live in a time when there is more information than ever before about how best to live well in the third act of life. I have found that by implementing a genetically-aligned diet and lifestyle it is possible to achieve a high level of physical health; by training oneself to be more mindful and self-aware it is possible to be less troubled by problematic mental and emotional patterns; that by discovering one’s intention and purpose one can find greater meaning and settlement in living.
As someone negotiating this stage of life, with a background in coaching and personal development, I am uniquely qualified to assist others to live their best possible life, for themselves and their families, and to demonstrate to others what is possible.
