Peter Young

Associate Coach-Mentor

Email: [email protected] Telephone: 44 (0) 1869 338989

Peter is a Coach-Mentor who combines a wealth of business and organisational experience with psychological depth and insight.  From Professional development with partners and associates in legal and financial services to senior leadership coaching and training in sectors as diverse as construction, telecoms, chemicals, FMCG, medicine and health, policing, and international development.  Peter has lived and worked in the UK, Kenya, Pakistan and Singapore.

With a rich history working with clients in professional services, Peter has designed and delivered global leadership development programmes and has provided executive coaching in both the public and private sector to all levels from middle to senior management.



Peter meets his clients at the intersection of life and business, making his approach empathetic, warm, and challenging: insightful yet practical and action-oriented.  Clients appreciate the space he provides to momentarily step back from their routines.

He believes that change efforts commonly fail not because of the absence of a good idea, but because of a failure to understand the unacknowledged benefits of the status quo. Working with less conscious motivations and beliefs allows completely new and exciting possibilities to emerge.

His approach is informed by his business and organisational experience, by his training in coaching and counselling psychology, and by his personal exploration of mental fitness and mindfulness practice.

His coaching specialises in the following areas:

  • Transition to leadership: Developing the mind-set and skill required for senior roles; making the transition from hands-on technical expertise to organisational leadership
  • Personal influence: Developing the presence, flexibility and skill needed to build team members’ engagement and performance, and to develop strong partnerships, both inside and outside the organisation
  • Career development: Gaining the understanding required to navigate career transitions with confidence, and to make career choices that make the most of innate strengths

Outside work Peter enjoys walking with his wife and family in the wild corners of the UK. In 2020 he aims to complete the 630 mile South West Coast Path, and will then be looking for his next big challenge. Music has always played a significant part in his life, whether playing the piano to accompany singers and other musicians, or himself performing with a local choir.
