Steve Foulkes (MAC)
Hi, I'm Steve, and I am a great believer that personal life and work life, while both very different, go hand in hand and inform how people feel and think.
It is with this in mind, that I coach people rather than circumstances.
My style of coaching is very relaxed while also being very attentive. The environments in which I coach are I believe quite different from many coaches; I like a fluid space because I find that people's actions can speak louder than words and I tend to read those non-verbal cues well.
The purpose of my coaching is that I believe people always have the ability to increase performance through their own ability to find the answers that they need.
I specialise in confidence coaching, self-esteem coaching, motivation and personal development. I am also skilled at coaching people with autism, ADHD and learning disabilities and also the people who support them.
If you have any questions or for further information, please contact me.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified positive behaviour support and active support coach in the health and social care field. I hold a Coaching diploma gained through fluent coaching, and prior to coaching I worked as a manager in the steel industry for 20 years.
I also work with adults with learning disabilities and autism and support the staff who work with them to achieve positive outcomes.

Some feedback that was received recently from a registered care manager that I have been working closely with.
"I find it very beneficial for the people that reside at our property having Steve there, as much as he is helpful for them he is a great support for the staff to guide them in the right direction but for me personally he supports me when I really need it and helps me with my thinking trail as to what is a priority. He is trustworthy and honest, I receive wonderful feedback from staff, I believe that people enjoy having him around as that extra support and guidance with his expert knowledge."
