Mental Health First Aid Training (Awareness, Champions and Full Accreditation):
I am a qualified executive coach (ILM Level 7), with over 25 years' experience of developing both people and organisations. I work throughout the UK, and offer coaching either face to face, online (via Zoom) or by telephone. I coach at all levels, and work with individuals and businesses to unlock their potential and help them to achieve their goals. I've always enjoyed working with a wide variety of people throughout my professional life, and continue to be motivated by the growth and success of individuals and organisations. It's that very same collaborative and partnership based approach, that now underpins the relationships I enjoy with every client that I work with. Before becoming a coach, I worked across a number of sectors from events and education to employment and skills. Working in the private, public and third sectors. Focusing on leading strategy, sales and marketing, communications, learning and development, and change management. Each role that I performed during that time – from leading and growing small businesses, to working as part of senior leadership teams in large companies – was within organisations that inspire people to develop their potential. This has been very important to me throughout my career, and it is that passion, combined with my range of skills and experience, that now runs throughout my coaching practice.
My approach to coaching is one that recognises the uniqueness of an individual, and understands that we all learn, develop and address opportunities and issues in different ways. It's important to remember that although there may be some commonalities in the goals that we set, and perhaps the challenges that we face – the path to those goals, and the solutions to those challenges, will always be as unique as the individual or business themselves. I therefore pride myself on the ability to find what works for you, while building trust and collaboration in our relationship from the outset. Combining my people and communication skills, alongside my sales and marketing background I bring a collaborative and supportive approach to my coaching, with an underlying focus on performance that encourages accountability and subtly challenges you to reach higher. I use a variety of coaching techniques to achieve this, but most importantly I listen to what you need and want, before empowering you to succeed.
For some people they already know that coaching is right for them and for others they need to find out more about it first. Coaching can be delivered in a single one off session but is more typically delivered in a series of 3, 4 or 6 sessions to suit the individual or the organisation. Do contact me for a free introductory discussion for us to explore how coaching could help you to achieve your goals.

Known to thousands of rugby fans throughout Wales as a knowledgeable, mirthful and passionate rugby reporter and commentator for The BBC and a brilliantly witty and entertaining after dinner speaker, Phil Steele's sunny demeanour and humorous disposition mask a shocking and almost unbearable truth.
For two thirds of his life Phil has battled against crippling bouts of depression and anxiety as well as having to cope with several personal and family tragedies along the way. A first bout of debilitating clinical depression following a rugby injury at the age of 23 which also cost him his dream of playing for Wales, was the start of Phil's lifelong struggle against that cursed mental illness and its malevolent twin, chronic anxiety, which at times even sapped his will to go on living.
This vulnerability was the underscore for a life which saw Phil lose his parents in his twenties, his younger sister to the scourge of alcoholism when she was 37 and his beloved wife Liz to a brain tumour when she was only 48.
Despite the dealing of such cruel life cards Phil's determination and positive attitude have enabled him to live a full and rewarding life which includes 25 years spent as a teacher of PE and then Special Needs Pupils, travelling the world as an after dinner speaker with his infectious personality and unique brand of Welsh humour, and of course becoming loved and respected by both players and fans alike in his role as rugby reporter on TV and radio.
With mental illness thought to affect 1 in 4 people in the workplace in Wales, Phil's story will resonate with both the many that have experienced it themselves and those whose loved ones have been affected - and offer them hope for the future.
His bestselling autobiography Nerves Of Steele was published in 2017.
