About me

"Tom’s coaching style was the perfect mix of empathy, openness and focus. My sessions with Tom allowed me the space to take a birds-eye view of my current challenges, while also coming up with tangible plans to implement the changes I needed to make."

An introduction to professional executive coaching
How can you be your best? What are you trying to achieve? What is stopping you delivering? How do your colleagues react to you? Are you frustrated? Is your organisation not performing as it should be? Why are you not a team player? How are your confidence levels? Can you meet your organisation’s expectations? Do you 'belong' in your organisation? This is also about career coaching and personal development.

If these are the sort of questions you’re asking yourself, you could benefit from professional coaching. I effect change by engaging with people at a profound level, getting you to where you want to be. I also turn teams around after re-structures, change of ownership or cost-cutting. The core purpose with clients is to increase performance by removing obstacles and blocks.

Transformational approach
Business is changing faster than ever before. To remain successful we must create credible plans and wrestle control of our immediate future. The speed of change and fear of the unknown are as stressful as restructures and cost-cutting programmes.

My coaching provides a method and a discipline to change yourself, not just to fix problems but to understand your strengths and potential. To transform yourself.

This involves assessing both your personal and working objectives, the work environment and your relationships across the organisation. At all times the focus is on you - and improve your situation.

I help clients understand and interpret their roles, what needs fixing, their responsibilities and how can they bring a better person to the team. I address how they can operate with integrity and honesty as well as how to create higher functioning teams, which in turn generate a more successful organisation. I do more than fix problems; I help clients change and develop themselves.

I am a transformational coach and consultant with over 20 years’ experience in private, public and voluntaries, from start-ups to FTSE 250.

"Getting a different perspective from Tom proved to be highly valuable. As an insightful and challenging advisor he enabled me to consolidate my position and set a clear direction for the future."

Richard Knight, Founder, Grafter.

“I found my coaching sessions to be of great value. Tom proved to be a very trustworthy sounding board which gave me an avenue to discuss challenges and concerns and receive independent feedback and advice in a confidential environment. He provided thought-provoking check and challenge whilst ensuring that I came up with the solutions and actions required. I would recommend Tom to others for senior management coaching opportunities.”
