I support others to find meaning and purpose through coaching, especially autistic people and those from other neuro-marginalised groups.

Coaching is for reflection and change – about you and for you. It helps you make clear choices and closes the gap between how things are now, and how you’d like them to be.

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, whilst helping you see your strengths and vulnerabilities, can be very powerful.

Coaching is personal support for you on 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 Style s
My approach is integrative and relational. I use a combination of healing modalities in the areas of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness, recognising that our interconnectedness at all levels is the key agent for change). I focus on a relationship of trust, care and sense-making through carefully guided dialogue.

I specialise in autism and neurodiversity (you, family member, clients etc.). I receive regular supervision and am fully insured.

How many coaching sessions will I need?

This is up to you but I suggest blocks of 6 or 10, with a maximum of 30 x 1hr sessions, which can be either weekly or fortnightly. We will discuss and agree all of this together.

I also run short courses for therapists and autistic people including Mindfulness for Autism

Background: I’ve a wide field of experience that I draw from including parenting, private education, storytelling, spirituality, therapy, international business and travel. I am influenced by a life of Eastern and Western disciplines including in fine arts, dialogue, philosophy and spiritual practice. I’ve been meditating and practicing yoga and chi gong most of my life. In 2014 was supplied with a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome and ADHD, providing a certain lens with which to view myself and support others, along with clear and honest insight, empathy and intuition to support and guide others to better lives.


“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.
