Are you struggling to achieve your business or personal goals?
Do you feel ‘stuck’, ‘lost’ or ‘burnt-out’?
Do you get frustrated about the challenges, problems and priorities that complete for your time?
Does your life feel out of balance?
Well, you’re not alone...
That is exactly how I felt some years ago.
Hi, I'm Kev,
Back then I was co-founder and director of a mobile technology company. I was not in a good place: working long hours, stressed and 'burnt-out'.
I hired a coach, and through the coaching process I developed an inner strength and focus that I didn't think was possible.
I became more confident, resourceful and happy.
I navigated my way through the challenges that I faced and resolved each of them.
With my renewed focus, resourcefulness, and energy, my business partners and I developed the business to an annual 8-figure turnover.
Some years later we sold the business.
Although I am proud of this, I am most proud of the ‘rock bottoms’ that I turned around.
Times when people around me didn’t think it was possible. Times when even I doubted myself!
But I found my way to be unstoppable: to breakthrough each of the challenges that I faced and create new possibilities for me, my family, and my business.
At times it was scary, but I learnt that much of what holds us back comes from how we see the world, so I learned to see things differently.
I also learned that as leaders of our own lives we are responsible for our thoughts, integrity, focus and the actions that we take.
I made my decision in that moment to become a coach and started my training.
Today, I'm a certified Executive Coach. I help business professionals resolve the challenges that they face, find direction and move forward with confidence.

Here is a small selection of my recent testimonials:
"I was a bit sceptical when I started Business Coaching with Kev but now I am so pleased I did. He managed to bring out the business skills I had forgotten I had and gave me the confidence to tackle some issues I knew I had to address but had put off. Our conversations allow me to bounce off ideas that I couldn’t digest during the normal working day and gave me food for thought. After each session I felt refreshed and ready to take on whatever was thrown at me. He has a knack of asking questions that he knows you have the answers to if you dig deep enough and encourages you to find them and to believe in yourself." - Karen Anfield - Director, 3X Software Ltd, UK
"Being coached by Kev has given me the opportunity to unashamedly think just about myself and the future and to get clarity about my own business development without feeling time-pressured. It’s lonely at the top: I don’t have anyone to talk to about decisions affecting my businesses. No-one should be an island. I was an island before Kev. Coaching is unlocking my blocks. Having the experience of someone else who is in business and speaking through solutions has been very beneficial to me. Coming up with a list of achievable goals to deliver and knowing you need to deliver them is what I wanted out of the coach - and is what I am getting." - Shelly Barratt, Founder and Director, Coya Marketing, UK
"I hired Kevin as my Business Coach while I was starting my new business and also going through a divorce. Kevin's compassionate nature and solution-focused approach helped me move forward with my business while experiencing a great deal of personal transition. Kevin allowed me to discover clarity and focus while providing me with excellent accountability through our coaching together." - Carla Kerner - Business Owner, Seattle, U.S.
"I started my life coaching journey with Kev 12 months ago now and I can say with all honesty that it's been life changing. He's given me the space and guidance I needed to look at my own thoughts and actions and it's lead to me being able to manage my anxiety and find a drive and ambition I didn't know existed! I'd recommend Kev to anyone!" - Nia Baker - Conservation Officer, UK
"The reason I decided to look for a coach was to become unstuck in my career, within one session I gained the confidence to apply for a new job and got it! I needed clarity on what I wanted in my working life which inevitably with Kevin’s coaching style bumped into other areas of my life that needed fine tuning. I seemed to have a gap between the real me and the outdated story I was telling myself. With Kevin’s help I was able to realise I didn’t need to be more, less, better or worse, that I was resourceful already, can use my intuition to good effect and that it was OK being me. Kevin’s relaxed style made it easy for me to move forward and I left each session feeling positive. I would thoroughly recommend giving Coaching a go." - J.A. - Manager, North Wales
"I found Kevin an incredibly talented as a coach. From the first session I had with him, I could tell the deep knowledge and passion he has toward helping his clients. His uplifting skills and positive energy helped me to open up in many aspects of my life and business path. I enjoyed his new approach that he used in every coaching session. You will be thinking that he is done with you, then he'll surprise you about a challenge that will stretch your brain in many ways. Kevin is a coach by nature, and by many other natural traits that he demonstrates during his sessions. I would highly recommend Kevin as both a career and personal coach. In fact his broad experience in both life and business is what makes him a wonderful coach and a human being to work with." - Sairan Aqrawi - Engineer, U.S.
"Kevin was fully committed to me as his client, this projected an extraordinary positive energy in the sessions which created a trustful and empowering environment to enable me to find my path for my goals. During my journey of coaching with Kevin I was in one of those “life crash moments”, he helped me to understand who I am and what I want, which has been an extraordinary remedy to bring me peace and happiness. Thank you, Kevin!" - Isabel Rodriguez - Manager, Luxembourg
