Leadership and Career Coach working throughout the UK

About me

Hi, I'm Andrew, I am a leadership and career coach, with over 25 years’ experience of developing both people and organisations.

Based in the South West of England, I work throughout the UK, and offer coaching either face to face, online or by telephone. I coach at all levels, and work with people to unlock their potential and help them to achieve their goals.

My approach to coaching is one that recognises the uniqueness of an individual, and understands that we all learn, develop and address opportunities and issues in different ways. Combining my people and communication skills, alongside my sales and marketing background I bring a collaborative and supportive approach to my coaching, with an underlying focus on performance that encourages accountability and subtly challenges you to reach higher.

I use a variety of coaching techniques to achieve this, but most importantly I listen to what you need and want, before empowering you to succeed.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss how Coaching can help.

Client Testimonials:

“I really like the way that the coaching is approached. Andrew listens to what I am saying and guides the conversation when needed. It has made me consider different ways of thinking and has challenged some inherent behaviours. I am now able to understand my leadership style, find ways of dealing with conflict and understand my life goals in more depth. It has been fantastic!”  Sales and Marketing Director

“At a turning point in my career I knew I wanted a change but wasn’t sure how to approach it and hadn’t a clue which direction and lacked the confidence to know where to start. Andrew and I worked through a series of tasks and discussions to open my mind. This enabled me to self assess my skills and beliefs.  Coupled with resilience building sessions I felt totally empowered to make some really positive changes and I feel really confident I will achieve my long term goals.” Project Director
