About Me

About Me

My journey (so far!)

My background

I live near Conwy (North Wales) and I am a father of two wonderful children.

Prior to creating New Perspectives, I was Co-Founder and Director of a successful mobile technology company – Spirit Data Capture Ltd. I worked with my business partners and colleagues to create a business that delivered excellent service and value to our customers across the UK. Many of which were FTSE listed companies. We always looked at ways to improve our business for the benefit of our customers and staff and to take it to the next level.

This passion to improve the business fed my deep interest in personal and business development strategies. I’ve always had a passion to learn, grow and to help other people do the same. I created New Perspectives to help people who are facing challenges in their life or business, take control, break-through what is holding them back and create fulfilment for themselves.

My philosophy

I believe that everyone can do more than they believe to take their life or business to the next level. Whether it’s being a better business leader, a better parent, a better partner, a better friend, a better communicator, becoming healthier, creating a compelling business strategy or finding a new way to cope with the demands of business life and personal life, coaching is a highly effective and powerful way to take on these challenges and create a break-through for yourself.

So, what could be holding you back from achieving the life or business you want?

Well, some call it uncertainty, anxiety or stress but if you follow the path of uncertainty, anxiety and stress it starts with fear.

Many of us can get “triggered” into fear by events, situations, people or even just our thoughts! Before we know it, something happens (we get triggered) and we are suddenly anxious, shut down or find ourselves in an argument. When we are fearful it becomes very difficult for us to be resourceful. Our fear trigger response can often get over-developed and it becomes a pattern of fear (a habit) and we create a limiting belief.

Life will throw many problems at you - many of which will trigger you! Without help it can be difficult to break this pattern of fear.

The aim of my Business and Life coaching programmes is to help you move from Fear to Freedom!

My Business and Life coaching programmes provide you with a supportive and collaborative environment where together we can gain a deeper understanding of the challenges you face, explore what is holding you back and create solutions so that you can move forward with confidence.

Challenge often shows up in life. That’s why challenge is a key component of my coaching style. I believe that the challenges we face are life’s way of encouraging us to grow. However, it can be difficult to grow on your own if you are struggling with limiting beliefs - that’s where coaching can help. I will be with you side by side helping you to resolve limiting beliefs so that you can take your life and business forward.

My coaching journey

I’ve always been very interested in human psychology and understanding how fear and limiting beliefs hold us back and how people have created breakthroughs in their life and business to free themselves from fear. I’ve spent many years studying these subjects, read many books, attended events and threw myself into intense coach training programmes!

Having seen for myself the impact of fear and limiting beliefs, I decided some years ago that I wanted to help people make the shift and create a break-through for themselves. I wanted to become a Coach - my coaching journey had begun!

Since then have attended many COACH TRAINING COURSES that focused on business and life coaching as well as human psychology. I always say to my clients – “Never stop learning!” as this is the juice that creates inspiration and energy.

I am a certified Business and Life Coach. I attained my Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching from the Academy of Executive Coaching in London and my Life Coach certification from Robbins Madanes Training (provided by Tony Robbins and Chloe Madanes). Each year I attend additional training programmes to ensure that I always further my Coaching education.

My commitment to you

My commitment to you is for my experience, training and passion to help you create the break-through you’ve always wanted!

I am a member of the ICF (International Coach Federation) and subscribe to the ICF code of ethics (details of which are available upon request).

TESTIMONIALS FROM SOME OF MY MOST RECENT CLIENTS

I began my sessions with Kevin to address issues I knew I had around anxiety in my professional and personal life. I could see how the anxiety was limiting me and wanted to change, to not be restricted by my emotions. My self-esteem was very low so I was finding it difficult to talk publicly, to be confident in my work and to have the drive to take action in my life. In our sessions we’ve worked a lot on my anxiety. He’s helped me break things down and has given me the tools I needed to help me manage my own mind and overcome the obstacles that I faced. The difference I’ve noticed in myself since starting with Kevin has been immeasurable. I’ve grown in confidence and I’ve noticed my anxiety is not restricting me as much in my daily life, I’m a much happier person. I would recommend Kevin to anyone who’s feeling stuck in their life, who want to understand their own minds better and overcome emotional barriers. His approach allows you to find your own solutions by giving you the tools you need, this method has meant that I’ve been able to go away form our sessions and work on other problems in my own time, such a valuable skill.

I found Kevin an incredibly talented as a coach. From the first session I had with him, I could tell the deep knowledge and passion he has toward helping his clients. His uplifting skills and positive energy helped me to open up in many aspects of my life and business path. I enjoyed his new approach that he used in every coaching session. You will be thinking that he is done with you, then he'll surprise you about a challenge that will stretch your brain in many ways. Kevin is a coach by nature, and by many other natural traits that he demonstrates during his sessions. I would highly recommend Kevin as both a career and personal coach. In fact his broad experience in both life and business is what makes him a wonderful coach and a human being to work with.

I was a bit sceptical when I started out on this experience with Kev but now I am so pleased I did. He managed to bring out the business skills I had forgotten I had and gave me the confidence to tackle some issues I knew I had to address but had put off. Our conversations allow me to bounce off ideas that I couldn’t digest during the normal working day and gave me food for thought. After each session I felt refreshed and ready to take on whatever was thrown at me. He has a knack of asking questions that he knows you have the answers to if you dig deep enough and encourages you to find them and to believe in yourself.

I hired Kevin as my Business Coach while I was starting my new business and also going through a divorce. Kevin's compassionate nature and solution-focused approach helped me move forward with my business while experiencing a great deal of personal transition. Kevin allowed me to discover clarity and focus while providing me with excellent accountability through our coaching together.

Kevin was fully committed to me as his client, this projected an extraordinary positive energy in the sessions which created a trustful and empowering environment to enable me to find my path for my goals. During my journey of coaching with Kevin I was in one of those “life crash moments”, he helped me to understand who I am and what I want, which has been an extraordinary remedy to bring me peace and happiness. Thank you, Kevin!

During my sessions with Kevin, he was able to coach me to a much sharper focus on my issues. In a very short time I gained a deeper insight, new learning and a clear way forward. The sessions were delightfully surprising, effective and professionally delivered.

Over the last 6 months Kevin has worked with me as my Executive Coach, during this time he has coached me through a number of key areas. As a coach, he is very calm, knowledgeable and most importantly insightful, he has a great ability to ask the right question or use the right intervention just at the right moment. Working with Kevin has been a very reinforcing and positive experience, where he has afforded me the time and space to allow me to work through the areas I brought to each session in a creative and supportive manner. Kevin is a very natural Coach and I would highly recommend him.
Alan Cheung
Group SHE Operations and Behavioural Management Director, Costain Group plc
Being coached by Kev has given me the opportunity to unashamedly think just about myself and the future and to get clarity about my own business development without feeling time-pressured. It’s lonely at the top: I don’t have anyone to talk to about decisions affecting my businesses. No-one should be an island. I was an island before Kev. Coaching is unlocking my blocks. Having the experience of someone else who is in business and speaking through solutions has been very beneficial to me. Coming up with a list of achievable goals to deliver and knowing you need to deliver them is what I wanted out of the coach - and is what I am getting.
