Recently, Mr. Lee realized that our legal problems are only the tips of icebergs in our life problems. The latter is more complex, subtle and difficult to resolve and oftentimes there is no sense of justice. As a result of this shift in thinking, Mr. Lee delved into spiritual, philosophical, and psychological studies for a few years. In 2014, he studied the Art and Science of Life Coaching in the world-renowned Erickson College and, as a result, he is now qualified to coach clients as a professional life coach. In 2015, Mr. Lee was trained by Richard Bandler, the co-founder of NLP, to be a certified NLP practitioner.

Mr. Lee believes that everyone is a success in every aspect of life and success is in your own mind and at hand and it is only a thought away. Mr. Lee is willing, happy and able to inspire you through his coaching to enable you to become one of the millions of success stories – only if you believe yourself.
