Change your job for a better life.
I help professionals in their 30s and 40s build a better quality of life for themselves and their family.
** Concerned about changing career during the Covid-19 outbreak? **
The World Health Organisation believes Covid-19 may never disappear. A vaccine might not work. At the same time, it takes us between 2 and 5 years to change career. So what should we do, when we desperately want change? Career change is harder than it was before. But don't give up hope – it's achievable. And I will guide you there.
Bespoke online life and career coaching to help you:
- Get clarity on your way forward
- Regain confidence, self-belief and motivation
- Find life meaning, purpose, and direction
- Fine-tune your work/life balance to bond with your partner and children
- Invest in your personal growth and happiness
- Discover how to keep making good decisions in the future
- Free lifetime follow-ups for future-proofing
"I wanted to change careers but I was unsure what I wanted and what direction to go in. Now I know where I want to go and how to get there, and I have better belief in myself. Paul is easy to speak with and he genuinely cares. You could see him as the non-judgemental friend who makes you think and understand what you can achieve."
"I was having difficulty working out what to do with my career and knew that I wanted to work for myself, but for years I have let things get in the way. I have made some clear decisions and without Paul's coaching I would not have reached the point I have now."
"Being heard. Really heard. I've spoken to friends, family and colleagues about how I feel but Paul made me feel like I could talk through to the end of the 'story' rather than having to move on. I've got to know another part of myself. Work has become a joy again rather than a source of stress."
Make no mistake: the old ways of changing career don't work any more. Did you know that matching your skills and strengths to job profiles accounts for around 5% of job satisfaction?
Career change is about more than finding a job. It's about figuring out who you really are and what impact you want to have on the world, and then connecting this to all of the other people, places, interests and activities of your life.
Because everything is connected. Just 'finding a job' ignores the importance of most areas of your life – and yet many people spend most of their waking life at work. This is a mismatch, plain and simple.
I guide you to a whole-life, 360-degree transformation of your life and career, with no stone left unturned.
You will get:
- A bespoke change strategy
- Optional online exercise suite

Training, qualifications & experience
I am a certified Animas transformational coach. My training is accredited by the globally recognised International Coach Federation (ICF) and the Association for Coaching.
I am a Global Member of the ICF and an Associate member coach with the European Coaching and Mentoring Council (EMCC). I have a coach myself and am committed to my personal and professional development, through training and supervision.
After earning degrees from Cambridge University and Durham University I spent many years in extremely high-pressure roles, chasing promotion and traditional models of success in large national organisations.
But I knew something wasn’t right. So I did more training and moved roles a few times, because everyone told me I should. I made a huge list of my strengths and skills, and tried to find jobs that matched, but – guess what? – that didn’t work.
Around this time, my first daughter was born, and I found the whole experience incredibly hard. Then suddenly, my health deteriorated. I spent 3 months in bed, with a much longer recovery to follow. Work became a source of stress and anxiety. I desperately wanted to find work I loved, but felt that my financial and family responsibilities made that impossible.
And then I got a coach. Which was a great start, but I did more. I brought together my own life lessons with my diploma in transformational coaching to form my 360 approach to life and career change.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

I don’t advertised fixed fees. Firstly, my service is tailored to you. Secondly, coaching is an investment in your future, so a decision based mainly on cost is unlikely to lead to a good result.
My rates are competitive, and I offer a combination of features you won’t find elsewhere. There are no hidden costs. I will be clear and upfront about my fee during our consultation. I never pressurise or hard sell.
I offer a range of contact methods if you’re not quite comfortable with jumping straight into a consultation.
