Coaching Style:

Peter encourages his clients take a very active part in the coaching process and clients are encouraged to stretch themselves and take full responsibility for achieving results in those areas of personal development that matter most to them.

Peter says “Coaching can be demanding but we can appreciate it is what we put in that relates to what we get out”. Clients have highlighted Peter’s ability to help them focus on the real issues and to deepen their understanding of their thinking patterns that both support and limit their current performance as well as guiding them to move forward in their lives towards achieving what they really want.
