Steve’s coaching and training profile

Coach and NLP Trainer in Maidstone and London

I am a coach and trainer with over twenty-six years’ experience working in large, high pressure corporate environments.

I first started coaching as a certified NLP practitioner and trainer, running workshops and doing ‘classic’ coaching and NLP alongside my IT consulting career.

Since those beginnings my work has been changed by Syd Banks’ work commonly known as “Three Principles”, Nancy Kline’s “Time To Think”, the Enneagram, Presence Intelligence and all the great teachers listed below.

Despite my corporate background, I am a heart-centred coach who believes the magic of coaching is something that reaches way beyond material goals; and that loving kindness and spiritual nourishment are key in our coaching journeys.
