Stephen Paul Coach | Mentor | Consultant
Hi, I'm Steve, I am founder and principal coach and mentor in my own private practice.
I bring an interested, open and positive mindset into my work as a coach and mentor. Clients like my energy and value the practical experience I bring from a broad and successful career. They feel heard, motivated and focussed when they have a session. I provide a non-judgmental point of accountability that encourages clients to work on further constructive thinking and positive actions in-between sessions.
I enjoy engaging, inspiring, encouraging and supporting the people I come into contact with. My experience with a diverse range of colleagues, clients and partners across multiple disciplines and from varied backgrounds gives me an insight to the challenges and opportunities that my coaching and mentoring clients face.
Examples of areas where my coaching can help
- Career Junction or Progression: starting a new job, seeking or accepting promotion, joining a new team, planning a major event, considering relocation or redundancy
- Career Change: seeking a new job or a complete change of role, looking to consolidate your skills and experience in a new career
- Personal Value Proposition: developing a clear understanding and formulating an authentic expression of the value you create for yourself, your employer and others
- Presentations & Meetings - formal or ad hoc: planning and preparing, presenting with confidence and conviction; handling difficult questions, keeping focus, maintaining presence
- Confidence, Motivation, Personal Presence: developing the key components that will enable you to be your best self and will help you deliver the greatest value to those around you

If you're looking for success and fulfilment as a business professional and happiness in your personal life, coaching can help you unlock your ability to change and grow. With a growth mindset you will be able to find the resources within yourself to be innovative in your thinking, resilient in your emotions, and successful in your interactions with the people and situations you face.
I work individuals - rising stars, senior managers, board-level directors and entrepreneurs - and with small to medium-sized businesses and larger organisation. I also work with clients who are looking for a new start or for a major change in their careers. My aim is to facilitate clients to have a growth mindset so they can adapt and adjust their thinking, their choices and their actions to meet the situations and people they will face in the disrupted world.
The initial call is usually about 20 minutes; there's no obligation, you decide if I'm the coach for you. We'll look at where coaching can help you and I'll tell you about what happens in coaching. You'll get a taste of my coaching and mentoring style.

Coaching & Mentoring Programmes - In person or via Skype/Zoom
Fees vary according to location and programme. Some concessionary places are available.
All frameworks start with an initial Discovery Session where we take stock of where you are now and discuss where you want to get to. This will enable us to decide what approach is going to be most suitable for you. We then plan out the subsequent sessions.
Preference Series Programme (includes the initial Discovery Session)
A series of six 1-hour pre-booked sessions, held over 3 months focused on your individual coaching and mentoring needs.
Call-up Programme (Initial Discovery booked in addition)
Sessions of 60 to 90 minutes - booked ad hoc - with hands-on working through specific models or practical exercises as required. Used as a top of previous work or as preparation for a specific upcoming event or challenge.
This programme is completely customised around your needs and your preferred working pattern.
A half or full day workshop and subsequent sessions to tackle a range of strategies you may want to develop. It includes hands-on practical activities, modelling and outputs.
What my clients say:
“Thanks to Steve’s coaching, I now have clarity of vision. I arrived with a medley of thoughts and ideas that made sense to me, but made others dizzy. Steve’s ability to listen carefully, question thoughtfully and provide space and guidance for clarity has helped me tremendously."
I work face to face in London and the South East of the UK and online with clients around the whole of the UK and overseas.
