Peter Upton, MSc Coaching & Behavioural Change, MAC.
I help people find the energy and confidence to perform at their best.
I specialise in two areas:
- helping people find more meaning from their work life whether they are looking to find new employment, start a business or stay with their current employer;
- helping people develop their resilience – by which I mean the ability to remain flexible in thoughts, behaviours and emotions when under pressure.
I work as a coach for organisations large and small, and also have regular personal coaching sessions at the Richmond Park Clinic. Each one to one coaching session lasts for one hour and typically people sign up for between three and six sessions. But before committing, or if you just want to find out a bit more, please give me a call and we can arrange to meet for an introductory conversation (free of charge).
Many heartfelt thanks for the support that you have extended to me throughout 2015.
Elke H, Marketing Lead, Automotive Manufacturer
Peter seemed genuinely interested and that was very encouraging and empowering. I am really looking forward to keeping the relationship going.
Sandra. Director, Commercial Property
Being a naturally reserved person, what surprised me was how quickly Peter developed a rapport based on trust and obvious experience and that made me feel comfortable being very open and honest.
Andrew. Director, Global IT Services
Peter forced me - in a positive sense - to 'think out-of-box' and consider options that I had not seen clearly before. Overall a very fruitful and enriching experience.
Isabelle. Training and Development Manager, Global FMCG
My initial reaction was one of gentle defiance. Coaching? Me? Spare me, please. Until I went onto a seminar, with a view to extract my firm from the low growth which had become a fixture over the years. The reasons for the lack of growth soon became apparent: A whole set of parochial, unadapted, dated, dusty, but comfortable attitudes, that I found ingrained - in me, in my mind.
How to change that, how to find the vim and vigour of entrepreneurial youth again became the pressing question.
Peter, with a great deal of corporate experience, patience, compassion and listening skills became the answer. Since Peter's intervention, the company has become much sounder, bigger, and certainly a lot more fun to run!
