Leaders like you.

We uncover your brilliance and full potential, so you can change the world.

Panel 1

Our work

The Natural Coaching Company works with leaders who want to be at their best, so they can do their best work.

Inspired by nature and natural systems, our approach considers the whole person in their wider environment.

We work to uncover your natural leadership – enabling changes that benefit you, your people and the planet we depend on.

We recognise that anyone can be a natural leader. Our clients range from executives to people at earlier stages of their careers.

No coaching experience is necessary. The only pre-requisite is a desire to address personal challenges at home or at work, and a willingness to look deep inside yourself for answers.

Together we can achieve strong roots and growth that lasts. 100% of clients have benefitted from our work, and our recommendation rating is 5 star.

“I can see where I am going now.”

What I really liked about James’ style of coaching was his natural ability to connect with you, making it an easy journey where experimenting with thoughts is allowed and not always in a confined space of an office.

Andreea, Job Plus Coach

Our first session involved a walk with nature – taking me away from the pressures of everyday business life really helped me think about what is important to me.  Since we started on this journey I have been able to make some tricky career decisions with a  lot more clarity.
