Kevin Clifton had life coach

Kevin Clifton turned to a life coach to help him quit drinking.
The ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ professional enrolled in a four-day course with Tony Robbins after turning to alcohol to combat his feelings of sadness when he split from wife Karen Hauer last year.
He said: "I have not talked about it that much out loud to a lot of people. I have had my own battles with drinking too much. For me I wasn’t living, for a while the life that I wanted to live.
"I felt my world go tighter and tighter and I was getting really sad and I was not sure why or what was happening."
He said: "When I stopped drinking I was speaking to a few people about it on this four-day course I did, an American guy called Tony Robbins."
The 36-year-old dancer – who is now dating his former ‘Strictly’ partner Stacey Dooley – learned to focus on himself and his ambitions and admitted things have been "better" recently.
Speaking on his podcast, ‘The Kevin Clifton Show’, he continued: "He was talking about, like when things are going wrong everyone has the wrong mindset of, ‘You think you have got to be something different to what you are.’
"He was focused on getting you back to who you are and what you want to do and not to compare yourself to anyone else as they are doing what they want to do in their life. You have to focus on who you are and do what you want.
"Once you stop doing this, put the drink down a second and get back in touch with what you want. I felt myself do that over the last year and things have got an awful lot better, but the mindset stuff was like ‘What do you want? Go and do that.’
"We think we have got to achieve something. We are all projecting this perfect wonderful life on social media."
