Paul has been working as a coach, consultant and trainer for 25 years. Prior to that, he worked for Deloittes and PWC. Ten years ago he established The Beyond Partnership Ltd, a leading edge coaching and training consultancy. He works with primarily with senior executives and business owners as well as private individuals and people involved in sports.
Paul works with people to help them to develop the depth and range of their capacities, to realise their potential and to extend their sense of what is possible. He has a life-long interest in how we can be the best we can be, individually and together, in order to address the challenges we face personally, in organisations, or socially and environmentally. This has led him to explore and develop a broad range of knowledge and experience, which he brings to his work. His interests include positive and performance psychology, neuroscience, physiology, systems, martial arts, sports performance and ecological issues.
He has a particular specialism in working with the interconnectivity of the mind, emotions and body. In his Somatic Intelligence programmes Paul takes a holistic approach, working with mind, heart and body together to manage stress, develop resilience and generally raise performance and a sense of wellbeing.
His coaching and training combines experiential, embodied learning with cognitive understanding and theoretical knowledge. Paul was the first person in Europe to qualify as a Conscious Embodiment & Leadership Embodiment Teacher with Wendy Palmer and has studied various somatic based approaches to development. He is also a Master Practitioner and certified trainer in NLP, an Inner Game Coach and has also trained in psychosynthesis, transactional analysis and brief therapy. He is qualified in Feldenkrais (movement re-education) and Polarity Therapy (energy based bodywork), plus he is a qualified chartered accountant, although he tends to keep that quiet these days.
