Online business coach - meet virtually | Phil Drinkwater

Online business coaching for owners and entrepreneurs

I'm an online business coach helping new and established business owners become unstuck and move past the challenges they face

I’m one of the UK’s leading transformational coaches and I support businesses both closer and further away from me in understanding the unsuccessful and frustrating paths that they find themselves taking time and again. Instead, we’ll develop successful patterns to follow that uniquely suit you.

Coaching used to be done exclusively in person, but today it’s not necessary to take extra time out from your day in order to meet in person to discuss your life and business. Everything that was helpful in coaching sessions is replicated in a virtual coaching session thanks to webcams.

As Seen On

What Business Coaching isn't...

Business coaching isn't just for large corporations

60% of the owners I work with are small businesses that employ a few handfuls of people, and 20% are startups and entrepreneurs. Only 20% are larger.

Business coaching isn't stuffy

This is a real and genuine conversation between two humans - a business coach and a business owner - who have one goal; helping you to succeed. (And we'll laugh too!)

Business coaching isn't pushy

I won't be angry if you don't complete what you decide to, but I will be interested in "why" since it will lead to profound new knowledge for you.

Does any of this remind you of where you are today?

You had enormous dreams, but you have started to become unclear of whether you can do this

When you looked at what a business could deliver to your life, you felt excited, but it's proven to be challenging.

You’re becoming frustrated that you aren’t finding your way to success

It's annoying that you see others find success, yet it doesn't seem you can find the right path.

The paths you follow seem to solve problems, but you end up where you started again

You are working, but the effort doesn't seem to lead you to the dreams that you had, and that is demotivating you.

You’ve a huge task list of “should’s” and “need’tos”, but you aren’t tackling them

You have a never ending list of work that just doesn't feel like it's worth doing.

You’re becoming increasingly critical of yourself

You're pushing yourself to get stuff done in increasingly unkind ways and that's hurting your motivation even more.

You don’t have anyone to talk this through with

You're feeling isolated and like there's no one to help you grow a successful business.

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.”


Case studies:

People pleasing

A client was having trouble because they were putting too much time and effort into the wrong customers

During our first meeting, it was clear that he liked to please people, and when I pointed this out, he agreed, which brought him a level of relief to admit.

He would never say "no" even when he didn't really want to do something

Because he didn't have clear boundaries, the wrong customers kept asking for more changes and more time, and he was angry that he let it happen.

We worked on tools to help him find the right balance between taking care of himself and taking care of other people

To get started, he rewrote emails with a different tone that fit his needs better. This allowed him to practice.

We worked together on his confidence

He took small steps to make his boundaries clearer without changing his position. This helped his business grow a lot and made him feel less stressed and pressured.


A client found that he wasn't doing the amount of work on his business every day that he wanted

We talked through his personal and professional lives to see what we could uncover.

Suddenly, he exposed a new business he was clearly more passionate about

He suddenly revealed a new venture to which he was obviously more devoted.

His lack of motivation was due to him needing excitement, as a person

He lacked drive since, as a human, he craved stimulation and the first business was not giving him this. We worked together on how to move forward to meet his needs more.

ADHD entrepreneur

One of my clients had put off establishing her business for two years

She had lengthy lists but had taken little action to tackle them.

She demonstrated characteristics of ADHD during our sessions, so we lessened the overwhelm

As a business coach, I also understand how to grow a business, so we adopted a Minimum Viable Product strategy, in which we only release the absolute minimum to the market, with a clear focus on the tasks she was already capable of performing.

She moved swiftly, taking action

She was handling increasingly complex and emotionally taxing tasks and circumstances after a few sessions.

How does online business coaching with me aid you?

I'm an expert at detecting patterns in your actions and language

You won't be aware of these yet, which is why you keep going down the same failed paths.

You will eventually learn to recognise your patterns before they occur

Via my coaching skills, you'll discover how you're acting and reacting, as well as what your true challenges are. This will build the awareness that you need to allow you to move forward.

You can then choose to try new paths that may be more successful

This will allow you to prevent yourself from choosing the same unsuccessful paths over and over again, allowing you to experiment with and discover more effective paths.

What is causing this to happen to you?

Frequently, business owners blame their difficulties on a lack of skills or knowledge.

Your life and business patterns are frequently what are preventing you from achieving the business and life success you desire.

To be clear, you do possess the intelligence and abilities required to grow or expand your business

To be successful, you need to break out of old habits and patterns in your personal and professional life.

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 business and life coach who supports clients in discovering how to maximise their potential

I'm a Certified Coach with a completely unique approach that will help you understand why you currently act and react the way you do, and how that contributes to the challenges you're experiencing with your business. As you progress, I'll be there to support you.

For the past 22 years, I've run a successful online non-coaching business with up to 20 employees

My failures taught me a lot about business, as well as about myself, life, and how I can grow the most. I've created a coaching programme that will assist you in doing the same.

I'm also psychology trained

I'm aware that our needs, thoughts and emotions determine whether we succeed or fail, and how we can change these to produce a more success-oriented mindset.

How will we begin online coaching?

What will happen in our Free Discovery Session?

We'll get to know each other and gain an understanding of what's going on for you so that I can recommend a useful path for us to work together.

If you're nervous, don't be - I'm incredibly kind

If you're nervous, we'll go at your pace. I'm a very understanding person, so you'll feel more confident and comfortable in no time.

All coaching is done online to keep costs accessible to all

I'm an online coach. People have become more accustomed to working remotely in various ways since the lockdown. I can coach you virtually as well as I can 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?

Purchase single sessions, or a discounted package of 6 or 12 sessions

I'm flexible to fit in with your needs. Single sessions are £149.

We'll talk about challenges, resistance, and how to create an amazing life and business in our online coaching sessions

We can discuss anything that is useful to you, but we'll focus on what is difficult and why you are resistant to certain paths. We'll also figure out what works best for you and how all of this fits into the life you truly desire.

We'll meet every 2 to 3 weeks, usually

I suggest we meet every 2 to 3 weeks, depending on schedules. This allows you to take actions so we can evaluate the effectiveness for you.

How does your future look?

What have you tried so far to overcome your difficulties?

You've probably tried number of things to progress. What are these? How have they fared in solving your business challenges?

Are you determined to improve your situation?

Out of ten, how much do you want success in your business?
Out ten, how certain are that you will achieve success?

What will happen if you keep going as you are?

Will you be able to solve your problems in the next 5 to 10 years? What will you do differently this time to improve your chances?

What would the "writing on the wall" say about your future?

Close your eyes for a moment and let this sink in; what's the "writing on the wall" for you? What is the future of your company and your life?
