The client relationship is of the highest importance to Peter and reflected in his coaching framework and model CARE. By providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment, clients can explore solutions. Peter has worked entirely in the service industry and knows just how much gets done on the foundation of a trusting and respectful relationship between people. He has brought this belief into his coaching practice and lives this out at every coaching session. Within CARE, the Coaching Relationship provides the foundation for each Coaching Conversation where the real work happens. There is a symbiotic and continuous exchange between the Coaching Relationship and the Coaching Conversation – each supporting and enhancing the other.

What Peter’s clients say:
I have worked with Peter for 6 years. In that time, he has helped me through several major pivots in my career, including a transition from the public to private sectors. He made me see new possibilities at each turn in so many unexpected ways. I have rarely encountered someone who has challenged me so much and who has made me into the best version of myself. He brings a unique combination of intellect, experience, and best practice to his role and keeps his contact and learning with a client long after the contractual relationship has ended. I would not be the professional I am today without Peter. I cannot recommend him and his skills highly enough. – Craig Kesson, Executive Director (October 5, 2021)
