With a wealth of experience in senior executive roles for renowned brands like Vodafone, Burberry, Adidas, and Pandora, I found myself at a crucial stage of transition in my life. I sought coaching to help me navigate through decision-making processes and overcome the anxiety associated with this pivotal phase. As a firm believer in coaching, I recognised the limitations of self-coaching and sought assistance from Adrian, someone I had known for years and respected deeply.

Reflecting on the investment in coaching with Adrian, I wholeheartedly affirm its worth.

Throughout my career, I’ve worked across various sectors, beginning with international relations negotiation for the UK government at the British Embassy in Mexico. I’ve been engaged with government organizations, as well as the third sector and NGOs, offering advice on policy-making and corporate strategy development.
My intention when looking into coaching was to gain a deeper understanding of my skills, abilities, and even aspects of my personality that have gone unnoticed. While I’ve accomplished many things, there will always be exciting goals I’ll strive to achieve.

His coaching encouraged me to be more risk-aware rather than risk-averse and highlighted the immerse potential of taking that leap, and not missing out on great opportunities. Without our conversations, I’m confident I wouldn’t have made that pivotal decision, that continues to positively shape my life.
As our coaching sessions progressed, I began paying more attention to what truly matters to me in life. Professionally, I’ve become more adventurous and eager to pursue greater opportunities.

As a senior leader at Co-op in Manchester for the last six years I was looking for a coach, someone who could challenge me, serve as a thought partner and sounding board, and help me navigate the sometimes lonely path of leadership. I often question my decisions and motivations, and having a non-judgmental listener who provides reflective feedback and valuable advice was exactly what I needed.

Adrian has been recommended as one of the best in the game, someone to learn from. I was keen to discover whether that was true, and Adrian significantly overachieved my expectations.
6 months ago I was at the beginning of my coaching journey. I have had a vision but no strategies or knowledge on how accomplish my coaching goals. Adrian has shared all his wisdom and knowledge with me. Also, I have gained so much value and important insights in every conversation with Adrian. What I look for in a coach is someone who will challenge me but also helps me find the current path.
I am a worker. I always get the job done, but sometimes I struggle to know WHAT needs to be done. I would never have expected the results from our conversations to happen so fast and I signed up two high paying clients in just one week with Adrian’s coaching and adopting his coaching approach as my own.
If I was to describe Adrian’s coaching in words it would be: Partnership, real, ambitious, fun, transparent and powerful.

Coaching has elevated me from a good player to become an elite professional player, winning trophies and championships and still dominating the game at age 35.
As I began my journey with Adrian as my life coach, I realised I carried a yearning for both professional and personal growth. While I had achieved a level of success in my career, I knew there was more potential to be unlocked within me. Simultaneously, in my personal life, I sought a deeper connection with my true self and a clearer sense of purpose. Little did I know that this realisation would lead me to a transformative experience with Adrian as my guide.
As a respected leader in my field, I understand the importance of my decisions and the impact they have on others. However, I also recognise that to be a truly effective leader, I need to stand firmly behind my values and bring my whole authentic self to work, after all how could I expect others to do the same without me leading the charge.
Being a female leader in a predominantly male environment I’ve attempted in the past to fit into a mould of what I thought I should be, Adrian helped me unlock what it means to be wholeheartedly authentic and true to myself, without compromise.
Embracing my core values was essential for my growth and potential. One of our sessions with Adrian was particularly powerful. During this session, we delved into the importance of “standing behind my values.” This exploration allowed me to gain a deep understanding of who I am and what unique qualities I bring to the table.
Aligning my decisions with my values became a guiding compass in both my personal and professional life, leading to a more fulfilling and purpose-driven journey. Adrian’s warm and compassionate coaching style immediately put me at ease, creating a safe space to explore my thoughts and highly emotive topics, something that previously I’ve found quite challenging to do.
Throughout our coaching sessions, Adrian skilfully guided me towards self-discovery, helping me break free from any limiting beliefs that prevented me from fully understanding my true essence.
With his insightful guidance, I began to embrace my unique strengths and potential, igniting a newfound sense of confidence in my decisions, both personally and professionally. Adrian’s unwavering support and encouragement inspired me to take bold steps towards positive changes in my life.
Today, I am no longer content with mere success; I am driven by a desire for continuous growth and fulfilment in both my personal and professional life. I know who I am, a statement that emerged throughout our journey together, conceptually it sounds simple, but these five words have had a profound shift for me and a powerful outcome in both my role as a leader and my personal life.
By standing behind my values, I have experienced a huge transformation that has positively impacted all aspects of my journey. If you, like me, seek to align your decisions with your core values and believe that overcoming limiting beliefs is essential for growth, I wholeheartedly recommend embarking on this transformative journey with Adrian as your life coach.
His approachable nature, combined with his genuine commitment to your growth and sheer determination to show you how others see you, will guide you towards clarity and self-discovery, leading to a future filled with purpose, fulfilment, and unwavering confidence in all aspects of your life journey.

Adrian is a great coach. I get so much out of our sessions.
I needed a coach after stepping up into a new role and coming back from maternity leave. I was focused initially on building resilience, but I didn’t realise how many additional benefits I’d get from his coaching. He asks questions in a way that makes me think about things from a different perspective.
He enables me to reframe challenges so they don’t seem as complex to solve and helps me think through different options for decision making. He’s challenging in a way that makes me really think about the language I’m using and how I talk about myself so it’s not limiting.
I feel like I could bring anything to the table and he’d coach me through any problem.

I hadn’t done anything quite like this before so I was very apprehensive, however I knew I had to do something otherwise my life would have gone in a direction I didn’t want. 12 months on, the experience has transformed everything for the better.
From my daily way of thinking, my personal relationship, my financial situation, career, and most importantly the belief and love I now have in myself. I didn’t realise it was possible to learn and develop so much over our time together, especially the transformation from the one day intensive session; this breakthrough has truly been life changing.
I will always be so grateful to Adrian for his support, coaching and the passion he has to help others live the life we all deserve.
He is a true inspiration.
