Sports & Performance Coaching Specialists 

Many people are unaware of their full potential and the endless opportunities available to them.  Potential is present in everyone in various quantities.  Unlocking this inner power through identifying where personal improvements can be made, makes dreams and goals a tangible reality.

Unlocking Potential

The spirit of a pioneer encompasses the ability to rise from failure and enjoy successes.  Pioneers are able to sustain high states of performance without the burnout by creating a balanced sustainable state of being.  Self awareness is imperative to personal growth whilst climbing the mountain of life.

Pioneering Spirit

When a person aspires to improve they also create an inner inspirational state that will help drive them forwards.  Leading by example can help ignite the spark in others to do the same.

“whatever you think you’re not wrong”

Small_004_edited_edited.png

I spent the past 30 years overcoming adversity which was created by a motorbike accident resulting in a spinal injury and paralysis from the chest down. I walked out of hospital 8 months later and wanted to find out the “Why” behind my spinal cord recovery. This journey has led me to a paralympic games wheelchair basketball player, has stood me on stages with Lords and other prestigious individuals as a speaker, has given me the opportunity to work with over 700 people in therapeutic services and provide education for the young and the old.

Personal values and beliefs. 

Honesty, trust and loyalty are my main driving values. As a coach I pride myself on being able to adapt my style to fit the individual. Communication is key to effective coaching and listening skills are essential, I have both in abundance. Compassion and support are part of any session when needed or just a good old kick up the butt, everyone is different and I will easily fit the approach that suits my clients best.

JP%20(2)_edited.png

I have spent over 30 years working with people from all walks of life. Having trained, mentored, coached and facilitated many individuals and teams using innovative ways of increasing awareness and the ability of providing opportunity to improve and develop. Fortunate enough to have served in a special military unit has provided real life awareness surrounding what the body, mind and heart are capable of.

As a coach, I am led by my humility and my emotional and heart intuition. An approach that is rooted in the values of kindness, openness and honesty. When working with clients toward the unknown, I believe that there is no space for ego. Focusing entirely on supporting you to achieve, and taking pride in empowering people from whatever backgrounds to live their lives with focus, intention and on purpose.

Pioneering Edge provide bespoke team and individual packages Because as human beings we are all unique.

I thoroughly enjoyed the 21 day challenge with Wendy & John as it really helped me develop my self awareness and understand my habits. It was a non judgemental and open space to have honest conversations. This has really helped with my self confidence. I have gained some incredible skills and spiked an interest in psychology too.

Lucy - Entrepreneur

“Before working with Wendy & John I felt stuck, defeated, drained and on autopilot. Following a 21 day plan that involved multiple aspects of personal development, awareness and ownership exercises, I felt positive, focused, full of intention and committed to get my outcomes. The program was supportive and enjoyable”.

Jo - Police Worker
