transformative coach

specialising in trauma recovery

Formerly a police officer; for over ten years now, Phil has since been in continual demand as an nlp/eft coach & trainer. 

His coaching clients rediscover their sense of fun, creativity, self-compassion, & curiosity – whilst re-connecting with their strengths, qualities, and resilience. He is co-author, with Annie Moodliar, of Do the Nattylala! A New Approach for Calm Classrooms.

Who I work with -

Much of my work over the past 10+ years has been with clients from deprived and marginalised areas of Inner City London and more recently Milton Keynes.

I work with adults and children wanting to move beyond  mental, emotional, and sexual abuse, PTSD, and/or other trauma  – including serious illness or accident, all kinds of loss, long term unemployment, rejection, difficult life transition, addictions, ocd, relationship challenges, domestic violence, bullying.

Most clients come to me through word of mouth, schools, social services, family centres, children’s charities, health visitors, community nurses and midwives, The Family Programme at Ixion Holdings, and other agencies. I reserve a limited capacity for private 1:1 telephone coaching for clients from all walks of life both in UK and abroad.

“Phil has a unique quality – an ability to empathise with and understand people as individuals, and to put them at ease from the very first moment. This is undoubtedly why he is so successful – he has to be one of the best in his field – and why I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who wants to move forward in their life in a positive way.” Education Qualification Manager
