Other areas of coaching I deal with

Business Development


I charge an session rate of £60 for individuals, and normally offer the first session at half price - just to ensure you have confidence we can work together. I also provide intense "breakthrough sessions" of around three hours for £150.

I have a day rate for organisations, either for team development or individual and executive coaching where this is helpful and I provide some free time for charities, such as hospices.

Don't be put off by price, If you keep doing what you do, you'll keep getting what you get - if you need assistance or guidance get in touch.

Further information

I am pleased to have qualified in May 2013 as a Havening (ADT) Practitioner, the first cohort to have done so in the UK.

I trained in London with Dr Ronald A. Ruden (the inventor and pioneer of Havening) and Paul McKenna, who is an expert trainer of Havening.   For more info on Havening you can visit my website (www.yourpotentia.co.uk) or Dr Ruden's website (www.havening.org).
