Tolis Marinos Pg Dip MAC BACP
An experienced, empathetic and creative Coach, Psychotherapist, Consultant and Lecturer of Coaching, member of the Association for Coaching and BACP who helps individuals to achieve their goals and improve skills. I offer Executive Coaching & Counselling that is sensitive, builds awareness and gives you flexibility to deal with issues at Work, in Business and in Life. Life progression is closely related to personal development and interpersonal skills. My executive coaching is backed up by many years of experience in the corporate and Education sector.
In addition I specialise in supporting individuals to return to work or build up their lives and careers following traumas such as major illness, addiction, alcoholism or maternity / care leave. It maybe medical diagnosis or long term illness. The focus is on developing all areas of life with the aim to lead a life that is fun, engaged and meaningful. I believe that this is the best guarantee against returning to the damaging low self esteem, alcoholism or addiction.
I also work with clients who experienced major or long term illness or surgery. I worked with clients that have dealt with cancer, organ transplant or disability. Resilience, motivation and creativity are necessary qualities to overcome these major traumas.

I worked for multinationals for over 20 years, was an internal Coach at a large academic institution and had to deal with life threatening illnesses and recovery, changing countries and switching careers.I love to walk my dog, to travel the world, "mix" with the "locals" and learn about different cultures. I am keen to keep learning, I love to ride my motorcycle and to encourage people to be a " more empowered" version of themselves.
I believe that anyone can change, we all have in us the capacity to adapt and be flexible, find solutions and get to "where you want".
