What is Coaching?
Professional coaching is an interactive process that helps individuals and organizations improve their performances and achieve extraordinary results.
As your coach, I work with you on all areas including business, career, finances, health and relationships.
As a result of professional coaching, you will set better goals, take more action, make better decisions, and more fully use your natural strengths.
One of the main outcomes will be that, together, we can ensure that you have the optimum work-life balance.

When I left the Merchant Navy i pursued my interest in Psychology, concentrating on Business Psychology, Interpersonal Relationships and Strategic Coaching, attending courses run by experts both from this country and in America.
In 1987 I employed my own Personal Development Coach and, with personal training, became a Coach in my own right a year or so later. I am able to give added benefit by integrating my Financial & Lifestyle Planning experience when coaching clients.

By the late 1990s Peter realised that coaching was one step up the ladder from counselling. He knew that there was a real need to help a significant number of people to overcome emotional and psychological problems before they could effectively benefit from the development and life skills coaching process.
Coaching Case Study
(For the purposes of confidentiality names and details have been altered)
Michael was a pharmacist client of Peter’s Financial Planning Practice who realised that coaching might help him in his business.
At the initial meeting Peter helped him become aware that his life was not in balance and that his family and his personal life were both suffering; he also realised that these pressures could be limiting his effectiveness in the business.
Within a few sessions Michael had started to change his priorities and was finding that he was actually working less hours, was seeing more of his family and was pursuing personal goals and yet his business was starting to prosper.
One year later Michael had learned to play the violin (a long-held ambition) to grade 5 standard, had progressed to conversational fluency in German, and had started to play golf regularly. Surprisingly (to him!) his profit from the business had increased by 50%. By this stage he felt confident enough to be his own coach and his business and his personal life have gone from strength to strength ever since.
Recent research established that 43% of the people who registered for coaching sessions were found to be clinically depressed. Over the past 17 years Peter has also developed, through training, a deep understanding and knowledge of counselling and therapy, enabling him to competently help clients who may, even unknowingly, fall into this category.
