About me

Helping you be all you can.

Choice and subsequent change is challenging and often people do not know where to start. Where I excel is in working with you to understand what it is that you would like to achieve, then charting the path towards your goals.

Together we will make this journey simple, understood and easy to action. I work within an integrative framework that uses a combination of Business coaching, Psychodynamic, CBT, NLP and Humanistic practices that we will tailor to your specific needs. This allows us to work through and understand your goals, issues and how best to achieve your dreams in a way that are both sustainable and felt. You are worthwhile, should be understood and deserve the life you want. The areas I will typically help with are:

  • Career change or starting a new business
  • Sustainable personal change (i.e. re-framing relationships, low self worth, etc.)
  • Supporting adults with learning difficulties achieve their goals

Many of my clients report that they start with one objective but end up resolving much more important ones. All of them would state I am warm, without judgement and capable of intelligent questioning and deep insight.

Career change / start-up support

During my fifteen year career in Executive Search and Recruitment I worked for the largest and most respected firms in the world. Throughout this time I spent thousands of hours helping senior executives through professional career transition. This experience places me well to support you, at whatever level you are,  move towards your professional goals. Some of the aspects of this work can include:

  • Career re-determination
  • Promotion planning
  • Business setup support
  • Interview prep and CV writing
  • How to secure that dream role
  • On-boarding support

My methodology works on all aspects of the process (both internal and practical) that will get you where you need to be. The philosophy is designed to work initially on the basis of you and your thinking before we then move towards practical objectives, charting a path towards your goals. Programs typically will be 6-12 sessions conducted on a weekly/bi-weekly basis though can be accelerated if your personal circumstances demand it.

Sustainable personal change

Being an integrative coach enables me to tailor programs to suit you as an individual. I draw on a number of different methods to best crystallise and actualise your aims. Psychodynamic thinking underpins my work, as it enables us not only to address your conscious goals but also discover any unconscious factors which may be in conflict with these. This is further augmented by approaches from business coaching, CBT and NLP. The work I do will often focus on:

  • Self confidence
  • Relationships
  • Sleeping problems
  • Feelings of helplessness
  • Fear of change

This work will normally take 6-8 sessions and I am able to employ a range of tools from the business world to support the work, such as:

  • Anchoring and visualisation methodologies (to help stress relief and goal attainment)
  • Personal 360 degree referencing (powerful for those with self-confidence issues)
  • Psychometrics application (for self-perspective and personal context)

These methods have been taken from the business world previously assisting those in the boardroom to deal with stress and to achieve their objectives.  We apply can these methods wherever they are relevant and/or pertinent to you.

Helping adults with learning difficulties achieve their goals

I have extensive experience of working with and overcoming obstacles to career and educational advancement associated with specific learning difficulties (dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, ADD & ADHD). I can introduce you to methodologies and technology which can drastically improve your ability learn and produce work. I provide a safe space to discuss the impact this may have had on your life thus far and offer some practical advice on how to support your objectives going forward.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

In addition to my private work I own and run an Executive Search, Executive Coaching and Corporate Wellness consulting firm. This looks at the placement of senior leaders (C-Suite, VPs & Managers), how to empower them toward success and how businesses can make their environments happier and more productive.

Also have an interest in helping entrepreneurs starting their own firms succeed by providing clarity of thinking and emotional empowerment.

Outside of this I also have an interest in a small tech startup which I founded.

  • An introduction to David


My initial consultation is free and lasts between half and hour to one and a half hours and is entirely dependent upon you.

Private clients investing in themselves are charged at £150 for a 1.5 hour sessions and we recommend a six session program. If we find that you have achieved all you want to  earlier, then you only pay for the sessions completed.

Corporate funded programmes are structured slightly differently and typically consist of:

  • An initial 3 way discussion with the coachee and their manager to establish how they would measure a successful coaching programme.
  • Six 1.5 hour coaching sessions.
  • Mid-point check in with the manager to get feedback on visible progress.
  • A closure meeting with the manager.
  • For corporate clients 2 follow up calls post the sessions to provide some support in relation to embedding learning.
  • These programmes are charged at £3,000

Team coaching interventions would be designed to meet the specific requirements of each organisation and I would provide a bespoke proposal for this type of work.

All prices exclude VAT.
