Have you ever wondered what your essential purpose is, what you’re on the planet to do – to quote my teacher, ‘why they bothered to send you down here at all’?
Find Your Life’s Purpose
I did, until a few years ago, when I came across a very powerful approach to finding it, called Core Process, that helps people understand what it is they’re doing when they are at their very best. It was developed by some chaps called Chris Bull and Calvin Germain, consultants working with the chemical giant ICI, and I was fortunate to be taught Core Process by Nick Heap, who worked with Chris and took on the mantle of teaching it.
The great thing about getting your Core Process is that, like most truly powerful self-discovery, it’s something you do yourself – with the facilitator encouraging and guiding you through the steps. Your Core Process is made up of two words – the thing you’re doing (an ‘-ing’ verb) and the thing you’re doing it to or with. An “-ing” and a “thing”.
We get to it by you thinking about stories of times when you were really what I call “alive and alight” in the world – totally in your flow, an experience of complete joyfulness. I work with you to arrive at a selection of possible words; then you find the two that encapsulate the very essence of the verbs and the essence of the nouns. It’s very rarely what you expect it to be, so don’t try to guess it without going through the process – you’ll almost surely be surprised!
The essence of you at your very best!
My Core Process is “Encouraging Potential“, and it provides me with an effective touchstone to help me decide whether I want to do something or not. If it fits with Encouraging Potential, I’m happy to do it; if not, I’ll pass. Although my Core Process happened to come out as a phrase that makes some kind of sense to other people, it’s not intended for them. A Core Process just has to make sense to its “owner”, not the rest of the world!
Some are perfectly suited to becoming a marketing message or even a brand – mine would be (although it’s been hijacked by my wife for her coaching business – she says that by letting her use it, I’m Encouraging her Potential!). Others make sense only to their owners, as a reminder of what they’re doing when they are completely in their flow. One I did recently came out as “Being Joy” – not really something the owner of a marketing agency is likely to use in their branding. Though why not, I suppose!
The fee for doing a Core Process - for finding your life's purpose - is just £295 (about $450). A small price to pay for something that will guide you throughout the rest of your life! The session takes between 1.5 - 3 hours (usually around 2 hrs for me) and we carry on until we find the phrase that's perfect for you, that really resonates with you - you're paying for the result, and we make sure you get it!

Sue Plumtree, The Life Enhancing Coach
What an eye opener our session to identify my Core Purpose through your Core Process was! What I particularly appreciated was that, even when I thought we'd got it, you felt there was still more work to be done. And, as it turned out, you were absolutely right! The minute we put those two words together I knew that was exactly my purpose!
Now those words guide me and my choices. I even get insights through them that I hadn't expected!

I worked with Andrew on Core Process. He spends time getting to know you, to understand the key areas and then hones in on the detail. He gently challenges you and really listens intently, giving you the space to process information. This enables you to have great realisations and gain real clarity.
Andrew is fun to work with, which is always an added bonus! I would highly recommend him to anyone and the process too, it's fascinating, really insightful and acts as a very useful guide in my life/business.
