Simon Perks


My name's Simon Perks and I'm a skills, qualified and experienced executive coach based in Somerset, United Kingdom. I work mostly with social entrepreneurs and with people in senior roles within the public, not-for-profit and social enterprise sectors, but I’m open to working with people from other backgrounds, too. The sorts of things that I help people with include personal and career development, planning a new venture and getting it up and running, improving their performance at work, dealing with workplace challenges, overcoming challenges that their organisation faces, and improving their team’s or their organisation’s performance. In addition to working with individuals, I also coach small organisational teams to address challenges that they face and to improve their collective performance.

Coaching approach

I adopt a ‘person-centred’ approach to my coaching relationships. This means that I welcome you entirely on your own terms and help you to work in your own way on the aspects of your personal or professional goals and aspirations on which you wish to focus. Because in order to create a climate in which you can realise your full potential, we must both demonstrate integrity and be authentic in our thoughts, feelings and behaviours, without hiding behind a professional facade. My coaching relationships take the form of a series of one-to-one conversations, which have a clear focus on a particular goal that you would like to achieve, a challenge that you would like to overcome or an aspect of your professional performance that you would like to improve. I conduct most of my coaching conversations by video call (e.g. Zoom, Teams, Skype) or over the phone.
