Chris Welford

Over the past 25 years Chris has developed a model of coaching based on personal consultancy.  This is a powerful blend of organisational understanding, business psychology, goal orientated performance coaching and integrative psychotherapy.  From an early career in HR and big 5 consulting, Chris has honed his skills in helping leaders become the best versions of themselves that is possible.  In recent years, he has worked on the mind-body connection and has authored Staying Sane in Business – a book aimed at bringing the best of psychotherapy to the world of coaching.  His second book, exploring what it takes to be truly fit to lead will be published later in 2017.
