The Peaceful Influencers Project
I coach, I teach. Together, we create happier and more successful experiences of our lives and works.
Stephen Woolston is a life coach, executive coach and NLP trainer.

Hi, I’m Stephen

I am a professional coach, trainer and mentor with over 27 years’ experience working in large, high pressure corporate environments.

I first started coaching in 2005, starting a professional practice in 2006. My first experiences were with traditional business coaching with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). I ran workshops, offered ‘classic’ goal-oriented coaching to individuals and executives; and delivered NLP training alongside my consulting career.

Since then my coaching style has evolved a lot. It has been greatly influenced by Sydney Banks’ spiritual work, The Three Principles; Nancy Kline’s work, Time To Think; the art of coaching with the Enneagram; and Bill Cumming and Katie Abbott’s work, Pause Place.

My work today is still about success, but with an emphasis on doing it from a peaceful ground of being. I am not interested in success without wellness. I also don’t believe in the old idea of chasing success in order to become happy. I believe in working on our success projects because we’re happy.

I live in Maidstone and work internationally through Zoom video conferencing.

My teachers over the many years I’ve studied are as diverse as they are distinguished:

“Stephen is one of those few who continuously searches for new ideas. He asks intelligent questions and can figure out his own answers as well. Plus he is a great guy. Give yourself a chance and meet him.”

I don’t believe in chasing success to become happy. I believe in making time for our success projects because we’re happy.

Start with happiness. Start with wellness. Succeed from there.
