I offer 1-1 coaching for anyone who wants to challenge, grow and develop themselves. We all have areas of our lives where we must perform, but few people get the support necessary to make the most of their potential.
Through my experiences as an athlete and Performance Director it has become clear to me that so many of the ways we train high performing athletes to face their pressures and challenges with courage and integrity can be directly translated to other contexts with great effect.
From my personal experience of transforming my mindset as an athlete, I can attest to the profound difference it makes when you learn tools and strategies for how to choose a values-led path and live up to the vision of your best self.
My approach combines performance psychology, values work, mindfulness, acceptance commitment training as well as practical and existential philosophies. I have seen the incredible effects of this approach in my coaching of leaders across the fields of business, academia and sport.
I am accredited in a ground-breaking coaching for motivation technique called Functional Imagery Training and I am also trained in using heart-rate variability (HRV) as the basis for lifestyle coaching.

"Laurence's coaching sessions have been rewarding, motivational and instrumental in giving me a laser focus on my goals. Within just a couple of Zoom calls I had dug deep and been challenged to map out actionable steps for which I have a genuine sense of accountability against a set of core values which will help to shape me both personally and professionally."
"Laurence has a very calm demeanor that instantly makes you feel safe and listened to. He is thoughtful and intentional in creating a powerful space, and has an incredible ability to ask very powerful and pertinent questions that really make you stop and reflect. As a result of Laurence’s coaching, I have a lot more awareness of myself, my triggers as well as some strategies that I have continued to use post our sessions."
Developing thriving individuals and teams as the foundation for high performance
Through more than twenty years of involvement in elite sport I have been developing my approach to how to get the best out of individuals and teams. I specialise in applying cutting-edge psychological approaches to developing culture and improving performance, and I believe this is where the greatest gains are still to be made in any performance environment.
In so many instances our practice still lags far behind what our best understanding of human motivation and behaviour tells us we should be doing. I work in both sport and business to help leaders and teams discover that this pioneering, human-centred approach is not just a moral imperative, but is also the competitive advantage they have been searching for.
Aside from my freelance consultancy work, I am an associate consultant with two firms that align closely with what I am most passionate about-
KMP+ House of Mentoring, where I help clients design and run their own mentoring programmes, create and facilitate workshops, and coach participants of our accreditation scheme.
The Compassionate Leadership Academy, where I coach organisational leaders to embody and enact 'understanding with positive intent' in everything they do.
