A Quick Intro

Hello, I'm Luke Scudder, a dedicated life coach with a unique focus - empowering individuals facing the challenges of adult acquired neurological diseases.

I know firsthand the struggle of mourning a past life, the feeling of hopelessness about the future, and the perceived burden  on our loved ones. But I also know that it's possible to overcome these feelings, to still achieve meaningful goals, envision a purposeful future, and shift your mindset towards positivity and progress.

As a life coach, my role extends beyond the conventional concept of advice-giving. Instead of offering advice, I typically pose thought-provoking questions that encourage clients to shift their perspectives and adapt to new life circumstances.

I work with clients to provide a comprehensive plan for navigating through life's changes, tools for fostering a positive mindset, strategies for setting and reaching achievable goals.

My involvement is less about advising and more about facilitating self-discovery and growth, except in exceptional situations where advice may be offered but only after seeking permission from my clients.

I'm here to guide you through your journey, to celebrate your achievements, and to help you lead a fulfilling, purposeful life despite your health challenges.

Mission Statement

My mission is to help individuals see their neurological diseases not as barriers, but as unique life circumstances requiring adaptation. I aim to redefine success, allowing you to adapt, reshape your mindset, pursue your goals, and lead a fulfilling, purposeful life within the constraints of your health challenges.

Vision Statement

To foster a world that recognises neurological diseases not as barriers, but as unique life circumstances requiring adaptation. Despite daily struggles, I envision a world where individuals with neurological diseases are empowered to adapt, reshape their mindset, pursue their goals, and lead fulfilling, purposeful lives. This is a world where success is redefined, allowing for achievement and fulfilment within the constraints of their health challenges.

My Story

TL;DR Version

My journey is a testament to the transformative power of adversity. I was born into a turbulent environment, where parental alcoholism and incessant arguments were the norm. These early experiences, while painful, became the foundation for my resilience and determination. Growing up, I struggled to identify emotions, lacked confidence, and often felt unloved. These feelings followed me into adulthood, leading me to drift from one job to another, never fully realising my potential.

However, the birth of my children sparked a profound change. I saw in them a chance for a fresh start, an opportunity to break the cycle. Their arrival motivated me to take risks, to strive for more than just getting by. I wanted to be present in their lives, to be a father who was there for them. This desire led me to start my own business in the IT industry, a field I was naturally skilled in.

In 2017, my life took another dramatic turn. My mother was diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer. I took a sabbatical to care for her, but she passed away just 11 weeks later. This loss, coupled with the loss of my business, was devastating. However, it taught me the value of time and how easily we take it for granted.

A year later, I faced my own health scare. Initially suspected to be a brain tumour, I was eventually diagnosed with a rare genetic neurological condition. This experience was a wake-up call. I found myself spiralling into despair, but I made a conscious decision to fight back. I quit smoking, lost weight, and started working on my mindset through therapy, self help books and training.

Each of these experiences has shaped me into the person I am today and the life coach I aspire to be. My past struggles have given me unique insights into the power of resilience, the importance of mental health, and the transformative potential of adversity. I've learned that setbacks aren't roadblocks, they're stepping stones to our strengths.

Today, I channel my life lessons into coaching individuals with adult-acquired neurological diseases. My personal journey equips me with a unique understanding of the challenges and emotions you face. I aim to help you adapt to new circumstances, maintain positivity, and set achievable goals. Through thought-provoking questions, we'll shift your perspective, turning setbacks into stepping stones to strength. Together, we'll discover your purpose and personal growth, finding hope and positivity amidst adversity.
