Chris Partridge Coach

ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC)


I have over 20 years experience of working successfully with individuals and organisations as a coach, facilitator and trainer.
In my work I draw on the rich seam of my background as a research scientist, expedition leader, Gestalt counsellor & supervisor, trainer and artist.   I bring to coaching a depth of experience with a wide variety of people at all organisational levels including managers, leaders, CEO’s and trustees/directors. I am available face-to-face, by telephone or Skype. 

As a coach, I create and hold a space where you are encouraged to bring all of yourself – thoughts, feelings and sensations. 

The combination of researcher and artist I possess fosters in me curiosity, a love of discovery and the ability to look at things from different perspectives. 

I employ these qualities in my coaching to support people to experiment with new ways of thinking and doing things.I enjoy working with metaphor and other imaginative ways where appropriate and can tolerate complexity, working with what emerges in the moment whilst also holding the coaching goal in mind.

Having previously worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist, I have excellent skill in helping people understand their emotional experience and do this appropriately within the context of the coaching engagement. I adopt a holistic approach, attending to mind, body and spirit.

As a coach, I seek to facilitate transformational change, the kind of change that is more than skin deep.  

I trained at the Gestalt Institute Cleveland and I am an International Coach and I am an International Coach Federation (ICF) Professional Certified Coach (PCC).  I abide by the ICF code of ethics and offer:

  • Developmental Coaching - focusing on professional and personal development
  • Leadership Coaching - focusing on leadership development
  • Team Coaching - focusing on team development

As well coaching individuals and teams I also train managers, leaders and individuals in coaching skills and deliver Kinharvie’s six-day Gestalt Coaching Skills training course.
