I am a medical doctor and an executive coach.
Along the way, I’ve enjoyed a corporate career ranging from advising digital SME’s through to working with a Big Four consultancy. My coaching blends life experience with passion, empathy and warmth.
You’ll find me curious, creative and challenging. Let me help you navigate the bumps along the road with fleet of foot and grace.
It all begins with the first step.
My unrelenting ambition is to help high achievers to find a new edge at work. My clients find me curious, stimulating and creative in helping them find pragmatic and sustainable solutions to their business challenges. I am an executive coach and medical doctor. Among my specialist skills and interests is coaching for health and wellness, and its integration with high performance in organisations. I have coached managers and directors at global financial and professional service corporations. They have been more effective at work; found greater purpose; and lived in a more balanced way as a result. My coaching blends life experience with empathy, warmth and passion to challenge people to get the absolute best out of themselves, to push on; to achieve more.
I have been an NHS specialist in preventative health and wellness for more than 20 years, coaching patients to better health outcomes. In the NHS, I have been involved in multiple regional and national change management projects. My corporate career has ranged from advising digital SME’s to consulting for a Big Four professional services company. I am fascinated by the business environment and the need to build clarity and creativity to meet the unknown and unpredictable. I have worked with senior medical doctors for a number of years, mentoring and coaching them particularly around advanced consultation skills and career development.
I am focused on my own personal development and have recently completed the Meyler Campbell Mastered business coaching course. This has allowed me to deliver even more value for my clients over a wider range of business issues.
"Rif helped me successfully negotiate a major life and career change. He is hugely approachable and non-judgemental, expert in distilling the issues and skilled at helping develop a realistic plan to move forwards. He's passionate, enthusiastic and very motivating. I'd highly recommend coaching with him to anyone, without hesitation."
"It has been a pleasure and a comfort working with you the last few months. Through out our sessions you made me very comfortable as this was my first experience in being coached. By asking the right questions you also helped me to see different angles and solutions to a situation had I been alone i might not have been able to realize! Your friendliness and easy manner would be of great benefit to anyone at any age. Thank you very much , wishing you all the best and I will probably come knocking at your door in the near future."
