My initial coaching offering is to simply listen to you ... doesn't sound much does it ? Whereas in fact this is the key starting point of a development and change journey that can bring you real transformational positivity and the results you have been searching for. I listen to what you are saying, thinking and projecting in your words, phrases, and metaphors - all of which start to paint a picture of the kind of person you are right now. At the same time, I will help you uncover and strengthen your sense of 'Self' in all that you do. By Self I refer to your self confidence, self actualisation and self belief - to change how you experience your life, other people, and the world around you. For many, your work is also a key ingredient in this and has a profound impact on the enjoyment you get from your efforts, and the personal and tangible goals and objectives you will achieve.
The coaching process starts with an exploratory conversation that identifies whats going on for you (or your "Pain points") and the changes you want to make. We also talk about how ready you are to change and ensure that the conditions are right. Areas for change include reflecting on your approach to family, friends and colleagues at home and at work and how you can move forward. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, when you are ready to explore, the power to access the truth on these issues will come from within yourself.
My personal style is develop real empathy and understand what is going on for you. Once this is established, I will seek, with your permission, to start to "walk alongside" you in order to help you move forward. This can lead to deep reflection for you and insight into your thinking and current challenges.
My coaching experience has shown that working together has helped the people I work with gain profound insights into their personal and business lives and make the changes they have been seeking. Maybe the time is right for you to explore this too ?

Here are some of my Testimonials
"Thank you so much for all your help over the past 2 months. I have had many excellent coaching experiences and I rate this one as one of the best. I loved the way you created a totally open, expanded space for me to think about some deep, hard things I was grappling with. I was dealing with something that has been part of my life and annoying me for years. You managed, by listening and sharing your observations with me, to help me gain new insights into the issue. You never forced me to rush through it in order to achieve an “outcome” and instead you allowed me to go deeper but move forward and consequently getting the best outcome I could hope for. Thank you so much. You have a great gift to share with the world.”
"My sessions with Paul opened my eyes to the advantage of Executive Coaching. Having someone to confer with confidentially on both a personal and professional level was of great benefit and allowed me to analyse myself and my work in a different light and set realistic and beneficial goals for myself. I would recommend taking on Paul as a coach to anyone looking to take the next step in professional development."
"I am seeking major funding for a philanthropic initiative. I had never had any professional coaching previously, so I didn’t know exactly what to expect. However, even after a couple of sessions, I found that the format was very helpful to me. Being able to talk with Paul freely enabled me to view my own capabilities in a more positive light and to take affirmative measures. Paul has a gift which enables him to strike the right balance between sympathetic listener and firm prodder to elicit responses that get to the core of any relevant issues. He is a pleasure to work with, and I have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone who might benefit from this type of coaching".
"Working with Paul over the last few months has helped my analyse and, in some circumstances, change how I approach situations at work. It has made me feel more positive and better equipped to manage my team and the work that I do".
