Performance Coaching and Accountability Program

Empowering You for Personal and Professional Success

Are you feeling stuck in your personal or professional life? Do you struggle with setting and achieving meaningful goals? You’re not alone. I understand the challenges you face, and I’m here to help.


I’m David, a seasoned coach with over a decade of experience. My mission is to empower individuals, from dedicated business owners to ambitious professionals, in implementing meaningful improvements to enhance both their personal and professional lives. Additionally, I specialise in providing crucial support to leaders, helping them overcome personal challenges and achieve sustained high-level performance.

Approach and Expertise

My experience covers a wide range of coaching topics, allowing me to offer practical insights and solutions. In addition to coaching, I bring consulting and training elements to the table, ensuring you have the resources and knowledge to succeed.

Certifications and Training

I have completed formal certifications and training in coaching, business leadership and management, business quality management systems certifications, and more. You can find more detailed information about my background in the ‘About David’ page.

Empathy and Personal Understanding

I understand many of the challenges you face because I’ve been there too. I occasionally grapple with the same hurdles and have spent many hours over the years figuring it out for myself via mistakes and learning! This shared experience allows me to approach your situation with empathy, offering practical solutions, a non-judgmental approach and a supportive hand.

Confidentiality and Trust

Your trust is of utmost importance. Our coaching relationship is built on a foundation of strict confidentiality. You can share openly and honestly, knowing that your information is held in the strictest confidence.

Accountability Coaching for Results

One of the cornerstones of my coaching approach is accountability. Together, we’ll establish clear goals and I’ll hold you to them, providing the support and structure you need to achieve tangible results.

Overcoming Challenges and Removing Obstacles

We’ll work together to identify and tackle the challenges and obstacles standing in your way. Through targeted strategies and a structured approach, we’ll overcome hurdles and propel you forward.

Continuous Improvement Week by Week

With my coaching supporting your commitment and effort, you’ll progress week by week. Together, we’ll focus on steady, sustainable growth in both your personal and professional life.

Efficient Systems for Sustainable Growth

Together, we’ll develop systems that support and work for you. By implementing efficient processes, we’ll streamline your approach and pave the way for sustainable growth.

Intense Period of Change for the Committed

This coaching program is designed for individuals who are ready to commit to an intense period of change. It requires dedication and focus, but the rewards in personal and professional growth are immeasurable. If you have felt stuck and unable to get results for a while, this might be just what you need.

Ongoing Support and Enjoyable Growth

Many clients choose to continue working with me beyond the initial 6-month period, finding the ongoing support invaluable for their continued success. Remember, the journey to improvement isn’t just about hard work—it’s about enjoying the process and finding fulfillment in your growth.

A Lifelong Benefit and Paying It Forward

The benefits of our work together extend far beyond the 6-month program. What you learn and achieve will serve as a lifelong foundation for your personal and professional growth. You may even find yourself inspired to share these lessons with your team, friends, and family, creating a ripple effect of positive change.

Commitment and Strategy

This program spans 6 months, a period ideal for significant, sustainable transformation. Together, we’ll set priorities, meet weekly, and work at a pace that suits you best.

How it Works

In our initial sessions, we’ll assess your current situation and work together to develop goals for the weeks, months, and year ahead.

We’ll have a weekly call to review your progress from the previous week, discuss any obstacles you encountered, and set clear, actionable goals for the coming week.

Occasionally, we’ll have conversations that look at the bigger picture, allowing us to address any overarching strategies or adjustments that need to be made.

  • You’ll need to allocate 1 hour a week for our calls. 
  • You’ll need to keep a journal of your week with your progress and any obstacles and challenges for us to discuss.
  • You need to be ready to commit to this process and be open and honest with yourself and me.
