• About


I’m a highly experienced facilitator, coach and consultant. As a Chartered Psychologist, Registered Occupational Psychologist and Coaching Psychologist; I’ve spent 20 years focusing on building individual and organizational capability.

Coaching is central to my practice. Combining pragmatism with intellectual rigour, I work with the strengths of leaders, teams and systems to help them flourish. I also offer consultancy support to those clients keen to shape their coaching strategy.

I work with organisations across a range of sectors, including heavy manufacturing, public sector (including central government), technology, professional practice firms, education and third sectors. I was selected onto the Coaching Register for Sky Media in 2009, into the Civil Service Learning Coaching Register in 2013, and EMC and VMware in 2014.

In addition to my coaching work, I supervise other coaches who are either experienced practitioners or newcomers to the field to continually develop and hone their coaching practice.

Deeply involved in the early development of the coaching profession in the UK and across the globe, I currently contribute as an editor to a number of peer reviewed coaching publications. I continue to author papers, chapters and books aligned to my work as a coach and consultant.

With Professor Stephen Palmer, I co-edited the Handbook in Coaching Psychology: A guide for practitioners, Routledge 2007.

My most recent book, The 31 Practices: Release the power of your organisational VALUES every day was co-authored with Alan Williams and published by LiD in 2013.
