Coaching is a solutions-focused, results-oriented, collaborative process that creates lasting, positive change.
Coaching enhances goal-attainment, awareness, self-directed learning, personal growth, and wellbeing.
I help clients skilfully navigate personal & professional challenges, including:
Personal and professional wellbeing, performance and effectiveness.
Transitions & significant life choices.
Stress and burnout.
Letting go of relationships / responsibilities that no longer resonate with your core values.
My coaching style is primarily non-directive, but will challenge when appropriate to stimulate new insights, personal reflection, and / or raise awareness of "blind spots", including unhelpful patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Benefits & outcomes of coaching:
Heightened awareness of obstacles, opportunities, and options.
Clarity and confidence on how best to move forward.
Focused, meaningful action toward clearly-defined, cherished outcomes.
Enhanced wellbeing, performance and effectiveness.
The science of wellbeing
My coaching practice leverages specialist training in applied Positive Psychology & Coaching Psychology (MSc MAPPCP).

I feel grateful and blessed having the chance to work with Paul. Every coaching session with him is enlightening – he has a very special talent to offer to his clients. What is actually hard work feels so easy, so light – travelling from one insight to the next, detangling knots, realising what’s at the core, finding solutions and putting them into practice. He masters the art of cutting through complexity with pragmatism, but he never compromises on emphatic listening and providing a safe space. One can trust his big, warm heart, and his capability as well as professionalism as a coach. He’s a true life changer.

Paul was born to be a positivity coach. I wouldn't have felt so comfortable and at ease speaking to anyone else. My brain works at a million miles per hour and has one hundred thoughts going on at the same time, and it was a miracle that Paul was able to help me unscramble it all & think in a positive way. It's either a miracle, or he is a great positivity coach, we'll go for the latter! He was clear, calm, insightful, and suggested the perfect thought processes and approaches to use in everyday life. I loved the experience, and I will definitely continue to keep Paul as my coach.

I have been working with Paul for about 2 months. This time has helped me greatly to find a new perspective on life and on what I care about. When I started this coaching journey, I was as some people say "at the end of the rope, hanging in there". However, with Paul's approach on Positive Psychology and his guidance, I did A LOT of reflection on myself, what is important to me and, most importantly, why. I can say now I feel much more in balance, not sad or about to get burnout - and way calmer. The best way I can describe my change of attitude is by how much more energy and cheerfulness I got back.
Mariana, Lead Experience Strategist, Denmark
When I met Paul I was stuck in an unhealthy career heading straight into a burnout. Paul helped me to find out how I can be true to myself, do something I love and feel passionate about, understand what my strengths are and get clarity how to move forward. His sessions are fun, playful, eye-opening and challenging. I am extremely excited to embark on a new journey of complete career change that (I think) will lead me to ventures that I wouldn’t have dared to dream about before my sessions. Suddenly everything seems possible!

Paul brings different perspectives to things that exist and he's is a joy to work with.
It's clear that he's doing the work he loves and his energy is both abundant and contagious.
Whether you encounter Paul street coaching, work with him as a coach in the corporate world or you hear him talking skychology on stage, one thing is guaranteed... you'll be glad your paths crossed!
Sallee, Leadership & brand develpment, UK
Paul has a rare ability to bring positivity to difficult situations and put human beings back at the heart of complex organizations. In this world of extensive and accelerated interactions, it is amazing to talk to Paul and rediscover how to truly connect people.
What is apparent when you first talk to Paul is his authenticity. I really enjoyed working with Paul and listening to his suggestions for the creation of a Wellbeing Committee within my firm. His insight and ideas have added tremendous value to the endeavour of trying to elevate the wellbeing of our employees in the workplace.
Thank you very much Paul! I would welcome the opportunity to work with you again.
