From the outset I was struck by Peter’s kind and sensible manner, and the fact that he really listened to what I had to say. In our first session we discussed my goals, and what I felt was holding me back about the project.
I am a qualified coach with more than 30 years experience in creative writing, economic journalism and the exciting world of energy. This website offers coaching and mentoring for those involved in personal and organisational transitions.
I offer one-to-one and team coaching, and my focus is both on improving performance and working on motivation, as I believe these go hand in hand. I prefer to work with clients creatively where possible, although this direction usually evolves over time and always within the client’s comfort zone!
I have been accredited as a coach at a foundation level by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council’ (EMCC) since February 2021, and I work under the EMCC guidelines and Code of Ethics. I trained as an executive leadership coach on the PGCPLC program run by Middlesex University with Psychosynthesis Coaching Ltd, and further details of my coaching practice are available on their website.
