How I help?
Coaching is an ongoing partnership that helps you produce fulfilling results in your personal, career and professional lives. Through this collaborative working, you deepen your self awareness, understand your values, what drives you, and enhance your quality of life.I use a mixture of tools and techniques ranging from NLP, to profiling, to goal setting and understanding what drives you, what you are good at and where you would feel most successful. Sometimes what I do is to pose some questions that are difficult to answer at first, but through discovery with you arrive at a direction that is best for you.
Where I have come from?
I passionately believe in the power of coaching which is why I have a coach myself to ensure I am the best for my clients.
Throughout my career I have continuously developed both professionally and personally from training, facilitating, mentoring, coaching and action learning activities as well as formal qualifications.
In addition to my extensive training, my life experience and willingness to understand has always helped me with clients and some have said I work deeply but with a light sense of humour.
So who am I?
Someone who has changed his career three times, believes in developing self awareness and knows that getting help is a sign of strength. Married for 30 years with two adult daughters of whom I am most proud. Worked internationally with people from over 30 countries from managing directors to business owners to people who are just starting out on their career, or stuck in some part of it.
What have I done?
I have coached over 750 individuals and many teams to achieve successful results for them in a wide range of situations from career change, to confidence building, to dealing with stress, to working out a completely new direction for their life or establishing more meaning and purpose.

Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
With over 20 years experience, I explore the best way forward for clients in their life and career so that they build on their strengths and are successful, happy and get the life that they want. Evening and Saturday appointments available.
I have enabled people to overcome issues at work which resulted in their performance being radically improved and for someone newly promoted get adjusted to what its really like for in this new job (what got you there won't necessarily keep you there).
I have worked in organisations to create collaborative teams that focus on the whole rather than just the individual so that each person as part of the team cam become whole. My coaching has been helping leaders in organisations get to where they want to be and navigate the changes in organisations.
Sometimes I have been described as the turnaround coach as I helped turn things around when it was difficult or the problems seemed just too many.
If you would like to know more about Personal coaching or Business coaching, I would be delighted to explore how coaching might help you. I have helped business owners clarify their business direction,capacity for change and what's missing.
My time for this 30-40 minute discussion is free,no obligation on your part, its a good way of helping you decide if this is right for you. Coaching is the right thing for people who want to change are curious and want to explore their choices.
If you decide to go forward with Life Coaching, then as a guide an 50 minute coaching session will usually cost £95.00 plus vat for a face to face, Skype or telephone coaching. All sessions have email follow up with materials and handy hint tips.
Some people prefer a one off two hour transformation session and these are priced individually.
Packages of 6 sessions can be purchased for the cost of 5 single sessions if paid for at the start of the programme.
Monthly and three monthly packages can also be arranged.
Given my extensive Career coaching experience I offer getting the right CV, making a great interview impression and knowing the job market and ongoing support in this often challenging time.
My best wishes to you your life, career and business.
So what is coaching?
Coaching can unlock whats been holding you back, help you achieve what's really important to you and provide a real opportunity to be open about where you are in your life / career?
It often starts with some questions:
- What makes your heart sing?
- What are you passionate about?
- What is the next step for you, in life, in your career, within the company?
- What needs to change here?
- What's stopping you?
- What gets in the way?
- What is emerging?
- What is the bigger picture you are trying to grasp?
Through these questions and understanding your strengths you can reach where you want to be. A chance to be the explorer in your life with the coach as a guide someone who helps provide clarity and focus and to form a plan of action to get what you really want
Some testimonials from clients:
Kate Markland (Director of The Markland Clinic Physiotherapy)
Peter helped me greatly to a plan constructive ways of managing performance reviews and challenging behaviour.
Having a clear plan and structure helped me manage the meetings and difficult conversations successfully to produce very positive outcomes.
Jan Sangster (UK Business Manager at Improve International)
Peter is an insightful and expert coach and mentor. His common sense approach is refreshing and with his excellent communication skills he ensures that advice and guidance is appropriate and goals are stretching but achievable. I fully recommend Peter to anyone who is looking for a coach to help them achieve change and move forward.
Rosemary Tilly Dearden(Oxford Learning Institute, University of Oxford)
I was struggling with communicating with the Senior Management Team where I work, and Peter was very helpful in putting forward a perspective on what senior managers need to know, and how to prioritise my reports. I have practised what we worked out in the coaching session ever since and the Director of the organisation has commented more than once on how useful my reports are as they help her to prioritise what is important. I was also feeling rather jaded when Peter gave me some coaching sessions and the coaching helped me to get my enthusiasm back. Peter brings to his coaching sessions all his insights and experience as a manager and leader which is invaluable.
Faisal Mooraby (Director at JCI Swindon)
Peter is an excellent mentor for aspiring leaders and a very competent speaker. He helped me in structuring my ideas to build a framework which I could then use to convince organisations and individuals to support my ideas and cause. What amazed me how successful I was using his method. Moreover, he is very supportive and is ready to help.
Georgina Kirby (Director at Away Space Ltd)
At the beginning of this year I realised that my business success and growth was being limited - by ME! I was under-confident in my abilities, and extremely frustrated by my lack of action on seemingly simple, and straight forward, business promoting tasks! Peter re-established my confidence and helped me to rediscover my self-belief. He is generous, open and excels in unblocking what seems at first sight to be impossible. I would thoroughly recommend Peter as a coach or business mentor.
