PHIL: The thing that gives me the biggest buzz is when I’m able to make a difference in people’s lives. I love doing what I do; I enjoy working with clients and admire their resolve in making often significant changes in their lives.
I use my skills and experience to help people to discover what they really want and then to help them achieve it. I get great satisfaction from learning from my clients what’s really important to them and then sharing their journey as they create more fulfilling and rewarding lives for themselves.
I believe that we all have unique talents and abilities – it is simply that sometimes, for a variety of reasons, we are unable to access them. Basically, “stuff” gets in the way. I love helping people clear away their personal obstacles and supporting them as they rediscover their true selves. I am committed to my own personal growth and use my development in combination with business and professional experience to help my clients accomplish their highest goals and move towards their full potential.
I currently offer one-to-one coaching, training and workshops for personal and business clients. I specialise in building self-confidence and self-esteem, increasing emotional intelligence, developing leadership skills and improving relationships.
STEVE: I’ve been involved in professional coaching since the early 90s, and in personal development for 20+ years, working with people business, therapeutic & voluntary organisations. I’m passionate about helping people develop to their full capacity, to clear limitations and achieve their potential in life. Coaching is a close working relationship focussed on helping you make positive changes in your life. We clarify your wants and needs, set goals and targets, and help you work towards them. We identify problems and obstacles and find ways to clear them. I support you all the way through to achieving what you want from your life. Coaching is practical and action-focussed, based on what’s happening in your life right now. While we work together, I support you in every way I can. With expert one-to-one focus on your current issues, you make rapid progress.
My business background includes project management, facilitation, training & consultancy. I’m an NLP specialist, workshop leader and life coach, with a degree in philosophy and many years training in personal development. My past includes professional acting, stand-up, and quiz shows (winner of The Weakest Link).I write for websites, blogs, books and business products. I’m author of ‘Action Learning – Using the Power of Group Thinking’, and ‘What’s On Top?’, and a contributor to ‘A Coach’s Story’, to be published shortly.
