Life coach and business coach, trainer and NLP practitioner
Welcome to my website and thank you for visiting. I work with organisations and individuals helping to make work and life less difficult and more rewarding. Please use the menu options to find out more or simply email, or telephone me to discuss your needs.
I am based in West Berkshire on the boarders of Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, and Hampshire and have access to facilities in central London. In relation to nearby towns I am located; 33 miles from Reading, 10 miles from Newbury, 37 miles from Oxford, 23 miles from Swindon and 28 miles from Basingstoke.
Training workshops and ongoing corporate assignments are usually carried out at the client’s premises or a client nominated conference venue.
Why choose me for Corporate assignments?
I bring an unusually complete set of attributes to my work. 20 years experience of senior management in large and small organisations, an MBA from Henley College of Management, post graduate diplomas in marketing and management, qualified in coaching and an expert in NLP.
In training workshops I achieve, not just knowledge uptake in attendees but also changes in attitude and behaviour if that is a requirement of the client.
Value for money is very important. Because I use NLP in my one-to-one coaching sessions, issues can be resolved quickly. One two hour session is all that is needed for around 80% of my coaching assignments.
Why choose me for a one-to-one session
One simple reason to choose me is from the evidence of the effectiveness of my sessions and the speed of results, demonstrated by the comments from past clients which you can read on this website under most of the menu options.
In addition, you can be sure that you will be treated as a unique individual and of course be guaranteed of 100% confidentiality.
While I am flexible as to venue and have access to rooms in central London if needed, most clients opt for a sessions in the relaxing atmosphere of my thatched cottage located in the beautiful Lambourne downs.
Do not hesitate to simply email or telephone for a chat or for more information or clarification.

Some comments from past clients
Client assignment – Ongoing coaching for team transition
Steve Kingston has applied NLP principles in a sensitive, pragmatic manner to the leading lawyers in the Tyco EMEA Legal Department during the past 14 months to universally positive effect. All of the staff have reported a greater insight into their own personal development opportunities with both professional and private benefits. I can report tangible improvements in both individual performance and job satisfaction as a result of candid, careful and impactful coaching from Steve. Trevor Faure, General Counsel, Tyco International EMEA.
Client Issue – Lack of Confidence
…….. I can honestly say that I have been absolutely staggered at the effect putting [my new thinking patterns] into practice has had. I have experienced this in a variety of situations – big and small – over the past couple of weeks, and it feels just fantastic to really begin to have an inner self confidence that I have never previously experienced. ………… All-in-all, I am quite simply amazed at the impact just a couple of hours of your time has had Steve. I wish that I had discovered it years ago! Thank you again, and I will keep in touch over the next few weeks and am sure that I’ll be availing myself of your services again in the future…….
Client Issue – Fear of Public Speaking
………….Thanks very much for the great session on Thursday. It really helped for Friday on both the presenting and also the [drinking with clients phobia] which is much better…almost totally gone except a couple of times when I questioned it! I’m really surprised by how much we covered in two hours and the difference it made, and I’m keen to keep doing more presenting and enjoy it. The playing with pauses was really useful as well…………….
…A real eye opener or should I say mind opener…very enjoyable training delivered with enthusiasm and humour.
…Absolutely wonderful experience, lots of learning, not only in content and behaviour but also getting to know my colleagues better…
