What’s your story?
We all have a story. Some of us are very involved in the writing of that story and clear where it’s leading. Others are just not engaged and some of you are frustrated with how your story is unfolding and feel a bit helpless about it.
Each one of us should be the author of our story, creating the narrative and determining the ending. It’s an exciting quest of discovery and learning, of purpose and meaning.
I have been on my own personal development journey since first being put through a Myers Briggs Personality Type assessment over 20 years ago. Getting a glimpse into personality types and behaviours fascinated me and ever since I have been working to steadily and fully discover and walk into who I really am.
I have taken risks, failed, learned and succeeded. I have coached, managed, mentored, supervised and trained many people over the years. I have experienced good and bad managers, and dealt with relationship struggles, family traumas, control and mild forms of emotional and spiritual abuse.
So, how does this help you?
My diverse range of experiences, how I have come to a place of knowing and owning my identity and being very clear on my core values - connection (courageous, curious and compassionate) and contribution (generous and unconditional), combined with my coaching knowledge and skills, enables me to help clients unpack their current situation and limitations as we consider: how has you story unfolded so far - who you really are and what is your identity; where is it you want to go next - discover meaning and purpose; and how to get there - the behaviours, habits, skills and situations you need to develop.
This may involve a deep dive into values and beliefs, reviewing good and bad habits, developing new behaviours better aligned with your values, developing emotional intelligence and agility, cognitive behavioural coaching, setting and maintaining boundaries, establishing accountability and lots more. You decide and I work alongside as we journey towards your next destination.

Free initial in-person, telephone or online session
To facilitate an introduction between coach and client I offer a free consultation (up to 1 hour as needed) when I can get to know you a little and also understand what you want to achieve from coaching. This also enables you to get to know me a little and ask any questions you’d like about my coaching.
Following this session I will come back to you with a proposal of how we can work together for you to consider and help you decide if I am the right coach for you. I really look forward to meeting and coaching you!

What clients say:
‘With his measured and calm approach Peter helped me to negotiate a difficult work/life balance decision during a time when I was feeling emotionally stressed and was struggling to think objectively. His pertinent and direct questions enabled me to realise what I wanted, what was important and how to achieve those two things in a situation that was complex and not clear cut to me. His confident and sensitive manner, along with excellent listening skills and friendly demeanour made my sessions with him fruitful, enabling me to make a difficult decision with confidence and clarity and moving my situation forward to a successful outcome.”
“You offered a listening space, compassion, a welcoming and warm safety, asked questions relevant to the topic discussed, expanding my thought patterns, you were understanding and came across genuine, made an effort and brought to the sessions some lessons and pearls of wisdom you would offer to me from something that inspired you or something you learned. I liked your excitement and how interested you were in what I would share, as small as that might sound, we may not find ourselves interesting, but to be in the presence of another witnessing our work, thoughts, personal traits, shame, falls and achievements means we do not do it alone. The non-judgemental approach made it possible.”
