Life Coach & Business Coach

About me

Hello, I'm Klaus.

I’m a Life & Business Coach and a certified NLP Master Practitioner. I have coached and mentored people for over 20 years. My belief is that you have everything you need to succeed and I see my role as your facilitator - I bring awareness to what is going on so that you are able to overcome obstacles and work towards achieving your goals.

I help clients with a wide range of topics in the areas of

  • Personal Life,
  • Work and Study
  • Relationships

Specific topics include:

  • Self-esteem
  • Confidence
  • Procrastination
  • Anger
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Sex and Sexuality
  • Coming Out
  • Friendships
  • and other topics

I have worked in corporate and private settings, with young people, with executives, senior and mid-level managers and new leaders. I have an intuitive style that helps clients to realise their full potential.

I welcome clients along the wide spectrum of cultural, gender, sexual and relationship diversity. At times clients look for a coach with a specific sexual & gender identity so they feel better understood. I, myself, identify as gay man.

Why Coaching?

At times you might be at a cross-road where following your dreams and reaching your full potential can seem very challenging, or even impossible.  A coach can help you realise what might be holding you back. This helps you achieve your personal goals, whatever they are.

Coaching can help you to live your potential...

  • Turn self-doubt and hesitation into energy and clarity.
  • Discover concrete strategies to address your challenges.
  • Transform conflicts.
  • Find your own unique style.
  • Be impactful in ways that feel congruent and authentic to you.
  • Define who you want to be.
  • Establish how you can make a sustainable and effective impact.
  • Explore your unique gifts that can transform the challenges you face.

My coaching sessions are tailor-made and offer practical support that you can apply in your everyday life.

Contact me to book a session and begin to make the changes you want.

How Does It Work?

Sessions can take place in person at my home just outside of Taunton, TA2 8HL (from September 2021) or via Zoom video call.

I offer a free 15-minute coaching introduction by telephone or Zoom. This conversation carries no obligation. You can use this conversation to ask questions, to understand more about the process of coaching and it can give you a good feeling if we could work well together. You can book a time here: https://www.crossroadcoaching.co.uk/book-free-introduction

In these sessions, you will be exploring your own experience. I am here to help you to do this, by offering the time and space you need. I can offer certain skills and theories which may enable you to do this better or quicker than you could on your own, but basically, it is you doing the work. The more you put into your coaching, the more you will get out of it.

Expanding your comfort zone. Most useful work within coaching seems to happen closer to the edge of our comfort zone, rather than safely within the middle of it. Only you know where this is, as only you know what’s safe and comfortable for you and what’s more edgy or risky to bring up. The more openness you cultivate in our sessions; openness to your own experience, and the openness to expressing this to me, the more useful the work will be for you. If this is difficult let us explore that too.

Further information


“Klaus is a fantastic coach. I was slightly apprehensive at my first session, but his kind and warm manner immediately put me at ease and over the course I found him to be incredibly easy to talk to. The work that we carried out over this time helped me overcome some self-doubts that had been hindering me both professionally and personally.”

John D

"I had the privilege of meeting and working alongside Klaus at a crossroad in my own life earlier this year. Klaus is a warm, kind, generous man who gives his full attention to you and your needs: creating an environment in which you feel safe to explore what’s going on for you. Klaus’ curiosity and sense of fun is contagious, he is perceptive and very skilled at empowering you to identify and make the changes you want. A chat with Klaus will offer perspective and an alternative way of thinking...working with Klaus is an opportunity to discover a new way of being ‘you’!"

Tina R.

“Klaus is an incredibly skilful and perceptive coach and NLP therapist. He instantly puts his clients at ease with his warmth, compassion and profoundly generous spirit. He artfully and gently guides you to a level of insight and clarity that will help you make the choices you want to make and overcome the challenges that have been getting in your way.
I know, because he's done that for me! Thank you, Klaus.”
