Executive Life Coach - Discover what you really want | Phil Drinkwater

Executive Life Coach

Available online throughout London, the UK and internationally.

I work with thoughtful and compassionate executives and senior leaders on determining what they want in life, and why, leading to becoming clear about their end goal.

What do you want and need in life?

Together, we’ll become clear about your needs in life, and which ones are being met, and which aren’t. We’ll also discover what you don’t want, by examining values and boundaries.

Why do you need these things?

Many of us instinctively know some of the things we need, but ignore ourselves. When we start to understand why we need them, we pay much more attention, leading to greater happiness.

5 common executive life challenges

Stress and anxiety negatively affecting your motivation

Tension between what we want and what we think we can do can lead to stress within our lives. Becoming clearer can help us open doors which were previously closed and build our happiness in work again.

A sneaking feeling that you're avoiding what's truly important to you

Some people catch themselves with an internal struggle between what they say on the outside, and what they think on the inside. Life coaching can help you to move in an improved direction for you, whether that's more time with family, hobbies, travel or even just more alone time for yourself.

Burnout and a healthy work-life balance for you

When we live with stress - within our negative emotions - for too long, it can lead to burnout. Recognising what's healthy for us can help open up paths which are more sustainable.

Contentment with what we have today

It's very easy to get caught up in the rat-race, where success isn't necessarily how we'd define it. Being clearer about what matters to us can lead to more contentment and less pressure.

Retirement planning and long-term wellness

We all retire somehow, sometime, but often we don't know what that will look like, and there can be fear that we'll struggle without the pressure. Making some changes now can lead to a gentler path to retirement.

What they say..

“I’m doing really well. Probably the best I’ve been. I have to thank you for the tools you’ve given me to deal with issues.”


How does life coaching with me help?

In our professional coaching sessions, I'll help you to discover the truth for you

We have often papered over what we want, in order to instead meet what we think we should have.

When you understand your own wants and needs, we can plan a path forward that respects them

You can't achieve a target when you don't know where it is. As you become more clear about who you really are, new paths will present themselves.

We can look at obstacles and resistance toward this path, and craft a holistic personal development and growth plan

When we consider all of you together as one, the growth required to navigate the perfect path for you will become clearer. You may also benefit from career coaching.

What they say..

“The difference from my first session to now is life changing for me. The growth is so wonderful”.


Who am I?​

I'm Phil Drinkwater, a leading transformational coach helping executives to find what's truly important in their lives.

I have a unique approach that goes beyond popular life coaching tools like the wheel of life - although we'll likely use that too.

My approach is based on the psychology of needs that's too often missing from life coaches.

I've increased my own awareness throughout my life and personal journey

One of my most effective skills as a person is in understanding myself, and being able to get a 1000ft view of myself and my life. I can help you discover the same for you.

I'm also psychology trained, but it's not therapy

Life coaching is about the future, not the past. While we might use the past for learning, we're aiming to find an effective end goal for you, and to increase awareness so that you can lead yourself there.

How will we begin coaching?

What will happen in our Free Discovery Session?

We'll discuss where you are in life, and I'll help you gain some understanding about why you might not be feeling fully satisfied.

If you're nervous, I'm incredibly kind

If so, we'll go at your speed. I'm a very understanding person, so after a short time you'll feel more bold and confident. But if you'd like a gentle way to begin, that's OK too.

All coaching is done online to keep costs accessible to all

Since lockdown, people are more used to working remotely in different ways. I can coach you from afar just as well as in person.

What they say..

“Before business coaching, I didn’t believe I could have what I really wanted, and I settled for second, third and fourth best. Now I’m moving forward with what I really want.”


How will we continue?

Pricing for one to one coaching services, and discounted packages

Single sessions £300 for executives. Discounted packages of 3 sessions are available.

I am not your personal mentor

It's important to understand that these sessions are about you and your wants and needs, not mine. I'm not the expert about you - I would just like to help you uncover the right path for you, and work through the growth required to help you achieve your goals.

We'll typically meet every 1 to 3 weeks

For life coaching we'll tend to meet more regularly since the work is particularly about learning for you, and keeping regular contact will help with your personal transformation journey.

What they say..

“In just one session, Phil took me from a place of apprehension to one of clarity and confidence. We spent time working out what things I need in order to achieve job satisfaction”.


Book your Free Discovery Session at a time to suit you

If you're nervous about coaching, let's chat on email a bit first, before booking a discovery call.

Not everyone is comfortable with the idea of coaching, and, if that's you, maybe you'd like to know a bit more about the process before booking an online call.
That's OK!
Let's chat a bit on email before taking the next step. And, honestly, you'll be fine since I'm incredibly kind.
