Paul Cummings Coach

ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC)

I have over 20 years experience working successfully with individuals and organisations as a coach, facilitator, trainer and OD consultant.I have widespread and in-depth experience in the private, public and voluntary sectors working in leadership and management coaching with international and cross-cultural capability. I possess a genuine curiosity in people and an infectious capacity to support people to become curious about themselves. Being driven by curiosity, I have a hunger to support individuals and teams to develop individual and collective awareness.

In increasing awareness, I help individuals and teams understand more fully ‘what is’ and a fuller understanding of ‘what is’ helps people make better-informed decisions about the present and future.  My coaching helps people focus on where they presently are, where they want to get to and ultimately, identifying a route to the desired goal.
have a commitment to both supporting and challenging people and make use of Gestalt theory and practice to inform my practice as a coach. I have a focus towards behaviour change, decision-making and acting on desired goals, holding people accountable for their commitments.

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.
