Executive Coach & Performance Psychologist

About me

I work with clients who feel they need to make a radical life transformation. They want to be challenged, and are looking for neither a 'quick-fix' nor a short 'goal-setting' type coaching engagement.

They may experience the following: 

  • Lack of confidence 
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Struggle maintaining relationships
  • Frustrated with their career 
  • Perennial procrastinators

Results you can expect from working me..

  • A belief that you can cope with whatever challenges come your way
  • A better understanding of why you feel and behave the way you do
  • A better relationship with yourself and others
  • Calmness and robust confidence

I work as a Developmental Coach. Developmental Coaching is about understanding 'The Self' - how you construct narratives about who you are, why you think and feel in certain ways, and how these influence your life.

This type of Coaching seeks to develop the individual holistically.  

Which takes time. I offer a 6 month relationship, where clients can contact me at any time and have 12 allocated coaching sessions. The first session is 2hrs duration. Thereafter, each is 90 mins.

Drop me a line if you would like a complimentary 30min chat to see if this may be appropriate for you.

Further information


I took part in a series of one-to-one coaching sessions with Paul throughout the Winter of 2020/2021. He helped me unpick the difficulties I have been having with self-confidence, both in the workplace and outside of it. He was able to add insightful perspective on my issues, enabling me to challenge some of the assumptions and beliefs I had which had been holding me back in certain areas of my life. He also identified certain aspects of my perspective that were destructive; ie a tendency to be very self-critical of myself, whilst helped me to understand some of the facets of confidence. 
Paul was able to truly understand who I am and help me navigate a particularly challenging period, both professionally and personally.
