Personal Development and Neurodiversity Coach
Coaching came naturally to David; aware that people were speaking to him about sometimes deep personal issues in confidence, he explored the world of coaching, developing a passion for lifelong learning and development.
Using a range of techniques and tools, he also believes in the power of one to one conversations, to overcome challenges.

‘If’ by Rudyard Kipling epitomises my belief and my coaching approach in so many ways:
“If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run”
My coaching goal is to help clients remove barriers and obstacles and achieve their potential.
My personal goal is for them to also rebuild and restore self-belief and confidence, and a ‘can-do’ attitude.
The brain-mind, mind-brain are quite incredible and which some consider separate entities…
They may house unseen neurodiversity conditions e.g. anxiety, dyslexia, AD/HD that can have a massive impact on individuals; at home and in the workplace, however practical assistance is available, in the form of coaching+ with specific focused strategies.
The pleasure that comes from coaching through and beyond such challenges is almost indescribable, I will simply say that it leaves a warm feeling that would thaw the coldest winter’s day.
I had a stable career in financial services until I met redundancy (voluntary) for the first time which opened my eyes to opportunities in the outside world.
Since then I have not looked back, enjoying success in a range of sectors and roles, including education, ISO accreditation, financial services again, credit management, as teacher, trainer and coach, in addition to various management positions.
This wealth of experience is incredibly helpful when coaching; sharing challenges and successes, inspiring others who may only see a mountain rather than the path leading through.
Applicable to both business and personal coaching-issues in the former are often addressed by initially focusing on the latter.
I love what I do…
