Creative coaching & Creative cultures

Coaching to gain greater self-knowledge for self-development and self-improvement.

“Robert is a fantastic life & business coach and I always finished his sessions motivated to achieve all actions set. He is very professional in his approach and guided me through the process of goal setting with empathy and exactly the correct level of challenge. His use of skills to push me in important areas was impressive and the way he seamlessly moved between the sections of GROW was outstanding. I always looked forward to our coaching sessions and this has been apparent in my recent successes. Thank you Robert for your support.”

Ian Rose, Motivational Speaker, Business Coach and Paralympic Medallist

“I was surprised how having someone who kept returning me to my priorities demonstrated how caught up I was in negating what was essential to help me perform at a high level AND look after myself. I have become that much clearer and focused as to what I want to be doing and how to get there. Thank you Robert for working with me, your patience and your insight.”

Moira Sugden, Lecturer and Social Work Practice

“Robert’s coaching was enlightening and extremely practical in supporting me with time management issues.”

C.C. Smallwood, Education

“Thank you for being such a good coach, Robert. You were instrumental in me getting my new job and assisting me in focussing, for which I am very appreciative.”

J. Millichip, Finance

You know how dissatisfying and confusing it is when things are just not progressing in your life or your business?

Yes, I’ve been there.

And that is why I created Creative Coaching Creative Cultures and wrote my books DISCover the Power of You and DISCover your Animal Magic. I help people discover and gain insight about their own inherent power; to make positive changes in YOUR life. Small changes for big transformation. But more importantly you will have discovered the power of YOU.

How can I help you?

I can coach you to gain greater self-knowledge for self-development and self-improvement.

Without a deeper knowledge of who you truly are you will forever flounder with the array of other issues that haunt many of us:

  • Self-esteem and self-confidence,
  • Interpersonal relationships,
  • Self-care and wellbeing,
  • Career and finances,
  • Discrimination,
  • or a general sense of being stuck.

How will coaching benefit you?

Coaching is goal orientated to improve performance. This is done through bringing a focus to your goals, your values or your limiting beliefs that are stopping you achieving your expectations. The purpose is not to reach your potential but to continuously expand that potential.

Coaching, like all creative activities, is more than a set of skills. Coaching is a mindset; a growth mindset.

Coaching has great benefits, whether that be for your learning and development, or to support any activity when your life has become ‘stuck’. You will become unstuck, develop your growth mindset, leading to a more powerful YOU.

“Robert is able to listen carefully and ask the really important questions that can help you explore different ways of thinking and taking action. I am very grateful to Robert for the time that he invested in our sessions and for his genuine passion to help me move forward in achieving my goals.”

Mirel Duta, Life Coach and NLP Practitioner

A good framework for becoming unstuck and transforming your life is my A.C.A.C.I.A. framework, coming out of my ebook DISCover your Animal Magic: The 6 steps to support small changes for big transformation.

Who is involved in setting the goals?

You are in the driving seat. You are in control. The role of the coach is to offer focus, challenge and pace relevant to your needs as the client.

How does it actually work in practice?

Coaching can be done over the phone, via Skype, or face to face.

Each session initially follows a set format based on the GROW model that moves from the Goal, to the Reality of the current situation, to the Options and then what you Will actually do. This model ensures that each session enables you to take the appropriate step/s towards your BIG Goal.

The GROW Model, initially developed by John Whitmore.

Why should you undertake coaching?

As mentioned above coaching is about expanding your potential. Coaching supports the development of creativity, imagination and transformation. It challenges us to progress either individually or organisationally. The world is evolving and coaching offers a process to shape YOUR part in the world.
