What my clients say

Get to know your coach…

Please note: Until further notice, for all new clients I shall be donating 100% of my personal fee from Octopus MoneyCoach Financial Coaching to a reputable Polish “Help for Ukraine” charitable Foundation supporting refugees from the conflict.I’ve spent the majority of my career in Finance and have more than 30 years as an accountant specialising in Tax. I spent the last 17 years of my Finance career working overseas across Central and Eastern Europe as a Tax Partner for a Big 4 Firm.

Since returning to the UK in 2017 I have been self-employed as an Executive Coach and Personal Development Trainer. To help clients achieve their goals, I like to provoke some new thinking by challenging clients’ thoughts about their finances, in a supportive environment.

What’s your favourite book?

My favourite book is Four Iron in the Soul by Lawrence Donegan. Written by a young musician/journalist who spent a year on the professional golf circuit caddying for a journeyman golfer. It’s all about their struggles on the tour, the ups and downs of their relationship as the caddy tries to help the golfer, and personal relationships on tour more broadly. I first read it more than 20 years ago and it’s interesting to read now from the perspective of trying to advise somebody on something that’s very important to them. Not one of the “classics” but the funniest book I’ve ever read.

We’ve got people talking

There’s no obligation after your first session. Take your time and decide if it’s right for you.

Once you sign up, your coach will start building a full plan designed around your goals – that covers everything from budgeting to saving, mortgages to pensions.
