Geoffrey Watson MSc CPCC PCC
I offer Business, Executive & Personal Development Coaching.
Executives and professionals seeking personal development, enhanced skillsets, needing to overcome self confidence or stress issues, or practise mindfulness, work with me to transform their professional and personal lives and achieve fulfilment.
I have many years experience successfully working with executives to maximise their talents and progress up the ladder.
Together we explore their challenges and ambitions, we deconstruct the barriers to higher performance, identifying and neutralising behaviours that sap confidence and potential, developing new skills.
Whether you have a personal or professional issue to be coached, I can help you.

"Geoffrey is a calm and assured coach with a sensitive and challenging approach. If you are serious about exploring change and want to gain real insight into what may be blocking your progress, Geoffrey has a wonderful way of helping you clear a path to a space where you can do some clear thinking. I gained a great deal in the coaching I received."
"Perceptive and mindful is the phrase that comes to mind when I think of Geoff. I worked with Geoff for just over a year, during which time his Business Coaching skills enabled us to vision and apply significant improvements in our operations. Above all, I was impressed with how Geoff offers an amazing set of skills for enabling the director to clarify their vision. And of course, his enthusiasm and patience to research his clients. Any organisation looking to change their business for the better needs Geoff. Period."
Derrin Morton, Director, Data Warehouse Solutions Ltd
“After many years where I was unable to work for personal reasons, it was a daunting prospect to try to pick up the thread of my career again. I work in an industry, Television, where a few weeks is a long time to be out of the game, never mind a few years. I had tried other life coaches before I met Geoff but felt immediately that he was right for me. He correctly understood the stages that I needed to work through and provided exactly the right balance of empathy, understanding and practical guidance that I needed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Geoff and consider my decision to seek help with him as one of the best investments I’ve made.”
"I met Geoff as I was going through a transition in my career and life. In the sometimes "jungle" world of coaches, Geoff brings a voice of wisdom and clarity and shows you the light you need to follow. He could relate immediately to my experience, office politics and difficulties I was going through. He was able to identify key drivers and impediments in my professional path and led me to better understand myself as a professional and a human being. He helped me clarify my objectives and gave me confidence in the next step.
I recommend Geoff without limitation. He won't sell you anything he cannot deliver."
