My approach to coaching:

I am very focused on helping anyone I coach to achieve practical outcomes and goals. I would describe my style as solution focused, but I use many of the skills derived from cognitive behavioural therapy to achieve this. I’m also very keen to help clients become better leaders and managers by becoming acutely more self-aware, and draw on a number of more modern approaches such as mindfulness and acceptance and commitment therapy.
