Coach

Coaching is about reflection, change and the right action for you, and its core purpose is to increase self-awareness. It helps you make clear choices and closes the gap between how things are now, and how they could be.

Why coaching?
People have many reasons to come to me for coaching, for example, you might be going through a rough patch, a relationship issue, a life change (such as coming to terms with an autism diagnosis), need help to clarify your goals, or simply feel you want to excel even further. Having someone to talk to, who listens without judgement can be very powerful.

Coaching is true, connective support for a while along your journey. By enabling and supporting you to explore your uniquenesses, I will support you in achieving your life goals and living a happier life, which is totally possible!

Coaching Styles
I have a friendly and holistic style, focussing on a relationship of trust, care and sense-making through carefully guided dialogue. My approach is integrative-therapeutic (a combination of healing modalities in the areas of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness), drawing on the relational, (recognising that our interconnectedness at all levels is the key agent for change), existential, non-dual and transpersonal. I specialise in autism and neurodiversity. I receive regular supervision and am fully insured.

I’ve a wide field of experience that I draw from including parenting, private education, storytelling, spiritual life, therapy, international business and travel.

Since I was young, I’ve been meditating and practicing yoga and chi gong. I spent over 20 years in a Sufi order, undertaking several overland pilgrimages and retreats including a 40-day solitary seclusion under the guidance of my teacher. Societal reintegration then brought a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome and ADHD, which provided a certain lens with which to view myself and support others, along with hyper-empathy and deep intuition. In 2017 with the University of Sheffield Autism Research Lab, I started Autism Dialogue support groups , using a special conversation approach, which became Dialogica. I now feel very fortunate to follow my passion full time in therapeutic coaching and supportive dialogue.


Testimonies

"Our early rapport contributed towards the confidence I felt in the sessions, and Jonny’s use of incisive questions helped me focus on the issues I wanted to concentrate on, and also resulted in several moments of epiphany when I realised what I truly wanted, rather than what I thought I did. ‘Purpose’ is more important to me than ‘image’." - MC 
“The time I spent in coaching with you has allowed me to put aside all of the negative 'realities'“ (anon)
"I feel that Jonny listened closely to me from the outset and throughout, created an atmosphere that enabled me to make the most of our time together, and enabled me to achieve my aims. I would strongly recommend his Coaching to anyone who has an unresolved or recurrent issue that they would like to address in a positive and assistive environment." - GJ
"Having been used to counselling/therapy session where the counsellor/therapist leaves everything to the client, I was surprised – and delighted – that Jonny was willing to share his personal impression of me. This was probably the most helpful thing from the whole series of sessions and it has taken me off into a whole new area of investigation." - LG
"I just want to tell you how much I appreciate our sessions - you help me see things in a different way and accept myself, and I feel like it's exactly what I need." - anon

The original meaning of the word coach is to carry (from the Hungarian kocsi, the German kotsche and Middle French coche). The meaning for a coach as an instructor or trainer first came about in approximately 1830; it was used as slang at Oxford University for a tutor who “carries” a student through an exam.
