At SKB Performance Coaching we will help you explore what is important to you, so that you can reach your true potential, achieve meaningful endeavours or find a happy life balance.

We all want to have fulfilment in life, work or sport and SKB will work with you as you dig deep into your own subconscious to find what really matters and help you find that lifelong behavioural change.

We follow the GROW model which was created by Sir John Whitmore (the father of performance coaching) and Performance Consultants International to help you set future goals and milestones and support you on your journey to improved performance.

By following the GROW model you will be able to set your own real, clear targets that you own and are responsible for, because it is your life, it is your journey. Using this method will allow you to see tangible improvements in your performance which fuels the energy required for continued growth as you achieve your big what.

Whatever your looking to improve in life, work or sport, SKB Performance Coaching will be with you every step of the way. The answers you seek lie within you.

Learn from the past, look to the future, live for the moments and enjoy the journey.


As a former competitive athlete, having worked in the public sector for the past 25 years, 15 of which served as a front line police officer, alongside 15 years as a football and weightlifting coach, people have always been my career.

As a front line police officer I have seen both the best and the worst in people and I have experienced first-hand some of the biggest challenges life has to offer. I am not immune to these problems, that is why I create a non-judgmental and confidential safe space that provides support, understanding and empathy.

Following an injury on duty, I was medically retired from the police service in late 2018. Since then my primary focus has been studying and practicing the art and science of Coaching for Performance to compliment my personal and professional life experiences.

I have already achieved level 1 and level 2 Performance Consultants International, one of the leading educational providers in this field.

I am also a member of the International Coaching Federation, the gold standard in Coaching. The ICF is currently reviewing my evidence and I hope to be awarded their Associate Coaching Certificate in the very near future.

I have over 100 hours experience in coaching individuals from many backgrounds alongside my 15 years service as a police officer and a similar amount of time working with grassroots to elite level athletes.
