Coaching is a special kind of conversation. It’s a creative dialogue that can free you to make the changes in your life that really matter to you. It’s a partnership. You bring your life to the partnership; I’ll bring my expertise and experience.
Why I coach:
I can’t quite believe it, but I’ve been coaching for almost 25 years now! In the mid-90s, I discovered personal development. It made a huge difference to me personally. As a result, it became my passion and then my career. Since then, I’ve worked with individuals and groups around the world on changing their lives in ways that matter enormously to them. I feel genuinely privileged to have touched thousands of people’s lives.
I describe myself as a personal coach, because the focus is on you and your life. Questions like
- What’s working for you? What’s not?
- What really matters to you? Are you giving those things the attention they deserve?
- Are there things you wish could be different?
But real coaching is about more than understanding the situation, more than analysing the problems. It’s about transforming them. Because when you transform them, life really can change for the better – dramatically.
My favourite question? How good could it get?

What my clients say:
Here’s what a few of my clients say:
I’ve worked with Jonathan on and off for 20 years. His understanding and compassion always leaves me feeling empowered. He’s unfailingly enthusiastic and exciting to talk to, and he helps me take my ideas and aspirations to the next level. Jonathan’s a great listener and quickly helps me sort out what really matters and what doesn’t. He’s so sharp – there’s no hiding anything from that man – but he is FULL of love. [Jess Brohn]
A very skilled coach, Jonathan entirely tailored his approach to what worked for me as an individual. Extremely generous with his time, he started with helping me to gain a profound and accurate insight into my behaviour, before taking me on a remarkable journey… I am hugely appreciative of Jonathan’s contribution. [Alex Brans]
Jonathan’s teaching and coaching have proved totally invaluable. Somehow he is able to hold up a mirror so that you can really see what you’re doing and how you’re working. For me, it’s translated into huge leaps in self-belief, becoming unstuck, effective and taking action in creating the life that I want. For that I could not be more grateful. Iria Lopez]
Jonathan is an excellent coach, and I’ve worked with him over many years. Several times over he has helped me make important personal and professional breakthroughs. He has challenged, supported, and inspired me throughout our sessions in his subtle, impactful way. [Valerie Michie]
What was particularly impressive was how you kept driving me to believe I could do more… You made it possible for me to commit to a bigger game, and held my feet to the fire whenever I thought about backing off. That’s what made the difference. Thank you especially for your friendship and believing in me. [Kevin Morgan]
Jonathan Stanley is a special being whose wisdom is badly needed… Would I grab an opportunity to work with Jonathan again? You bet! [Smita Joshi]
Jonathan always proves to be very insightful, never afraid to deal with issues head on. Prepare to be challenged! [Nigel Major]
Jonathan is an inspirational, grounded individual who never fails to deliver exceptional results… I recommend his practical, results driven approach. [Nick Harley]
Jonathan has a warm and generous personality, gives freely of his time and his deep commitment to high professional standards shines through. It doesn’t take much digging to find his incisive mind, keen intellect and willingness to engage at all levels. I would work with him again at any time. [John Keegan]
Training, qualifications & experience
Background & Experience:
My roots in coaching are with a personal development company called Landmark Education. I trained with them, worked for them and led their personal development programmes for thousands of people during the 1990s.
Since then, I’ve had close to 25 years’ experience, working as a coach, trainer and consultant with people in more than 35 countries from Shanghai to Chicago, either in 1-1 or group coaching programmes.
My approach to coaching is transformational. That means it’s not about incremental change. It’s about causing a complete shift in how you see the issue we’re working on; and when you see things differently, everything changes.
I draw on a number of different approaches, but my work is rooted in existential philosophy, and ontology and phenomenology in particular.
Professional memberships & current studies:
I’m a member of the Association for Coaching, and I’m currently studying for an MA in Existential Coaching with the New School of Psychotherapy & Counselling.
Areas of coaching I deal with
I like to put together a personal coaching plan for each client, designed to suit you. We’ll put it together to fit your circumstances and what you’re trying to achieve. That means you can see where you’re going, and you know where you are on the journey. The coaching plans can include
- Regular, scheduled coaching calls (the backbone of the programme)
- Extra calls on request (for questions that come up)
- Email or Messenger coaching support (for questions or updates that don’t need a call or can’t wait)
Fees depend on the plan we put together, and how many scheduled calls we include. I guarantee you’ll be very happy with the results!
Alternatively, I can charge based on an hourly rate.
I’m also willing to offer reduced rates for people who can’t afford my fees, or who I particularly want to work with.
Please contact me if you want to talk about fees.
