About me

I help frustrated professionals and leaders get back on the radar for the right reasons. My work begins where Executive Coaches, Consultants, Therapists and Mentors finish. I don't believe you need fixing; you're already successful and renowned for what you do. But I do believe you're often lonely and disillusioned - I know this because I've been there and I can reassure you that you are not alone.

Like you, there are thousands of frustrated professionals out there who crave something different at work and home, but feel like they're going around in circles. You've followed the career path to the letter despite the sacrifices. You're now tired of your life being controlled by the political machine, and you don’t know what to do about it.

Working with me starts with an informal, complimentary session aboard my yacht in Brighton Marina.

Training, qualifications & experience

At the pinnacle of my corporate career, to the outside world I had everything. I travelled the globe making enormous decisions, with million pound budgets at my fingertips.

One evening in a roof top cocktail bar in Hong Kong, I looked out across the bay and felt the loneliest you could ever imagine. My family and friends were incredibly proud of me. But nobody knew I felt numb inside. I had a horrific relationship with my passive-aggressive boss, and all the technical skills that got me the job were now my Achilles heel. I had nowhere to turn and nobody to talk to I could genuinely trust.

I get it, I've been there, and I can help you.

Further information

These testimonials from previous clients demonstrate the type of areas I work in:

Simon, Branch Director EMEA

I firmly believe that without Barry's compassion and questioning, many of the challenges I've faced would not have been overcome without significant fallout and subsequent commercial and reputational damage.

Barry has been a constant source of understanding and stretch and I have found myself to this day continually seeking his help working through such challenges.

Laura, Head of Learning

With bags of patience and an ability to help you dig deep and make sense of the nub of the issue, Barry works with you to develop a trusting and relaxed relationship which creates a safe environment conducive to working through any issue.

Without fail I would leave each coaching session with a sore head - testament to Barry's ability to enable me to clearly articulate the issue, and understand any complexity so that I can plan my next steps.

Debby, Director

Barry’s approach has fundamentally shifted the structure and focus of our senior manager team. He encourages leaders to get to the heart of the issue quickly. His style positively promotes asking yourself the difficult questions when we all too often play the game of avoidance.

His direct and supportive approach means that you can do this in a way that generates appropriate decisions and actions for positive change.
