About me

How coaching can help you:

If you want to find ways to more consistently be and do your best, then working with a coach can help. Getting more clarity and awareness of what is most important to you, along with practical steps and strategies you can follow can help you move toward sustainable success.

My one-to-one work with individuals typically includes: help with transition into a new role, decisions about the next career move, adapting during restructures or mergers and finding more balance in life.

When working with teams I help them find new ways of working that create a better experience for their clients and themselves.  Scenarios in which I do this are: service design and improvement, business start-up, geographic expansion, off-shoring, project initiation and project recovery.

How I work with clients:

As a coach, my role is to help you define your view of success and the steps you want to take on the road to achieving it.

Cleints say that I am calm, challenging, compassionate and fully committed to supporting the achievement of their goals. I'll ask you to be open and ready to stretch yourself.

What to expect:

During our first session, the priority is to get know each other, set clear expectations and ensure we both feel that we can work together on what you want to achieve.

Typically, after a first session, we would have further six sessions over a period of three to six months. What you want to achieve and how we work can be customised based on what we agree in our first session.

Please call 07557 873834 or email for your first appointment

Feedback from clients:

"I have some coaching with Paul recently and he was really great in helping me get some fresh perspective on what is important to me and to articulate a clear vision for near future in my chosen area. He guided me step by step through the actions I can take to get closer to that goal and this has led to me feeling more focused and content. Paul is a great listener and able to focus the conversation and find patterns and threads in what I have said which can really help in crystallising intangible ideas".

Training, qualifications & experience

My work draws on experience gained in 25 years in marketing information and manufacturing businesses as well as recent experience in banking, higher education and the charity sector. I have led international teams from commercial and technical backgrounds in business growth and recovery situations, developed new markets and set up off-shoring and outsourcing services. I understand the challenges that people at all levels in organisations face and thrive on helping them cut through complexity to find their way forward during periods of transformation.

I am a professionally accredited coach at ACC level with the International Coach Federation and continue to be coached and invest in my ongoing development. Working one to one or with groups, I am calm, compassionate and challenging. I create a space in which people can get clarity on what is really important to them so that they can then create momentum on the road to their personal and professional goals. Working with people in new sectors including banking services, charities, higher education and logistics has continued to develop me personally and reinforce my belief in the role that coaching can play to help people develop.

To keep my balance, relax and find my own way forward I enjoy walking with the family and long-distance cycling events that combine travel with discovery.
