What people say about us...

Business Mentoring

'Having Phil come in to support our business has proved invaluable. His coaching style and easy-going but provocative approach really works and he has bought clarity and direction to our business.


Prior to Phil’s involvement we were doing well but we were slightly disjointed and haphazard in our approach. However, Phil has helped give the business structure and organisation in a way which has allowed us to move forward with focus and confidence.


Profits are up and I feel much happier knowing that we have a clear strategy and objectives to aim at, the investment was well worth it.'

Matt Woodhart, Owner, Woodhart Group

"Phil has helped us focus on the key areas of our business which require development…develop our business plan for the next few years, enabling us to focus our resources on an effective business strategy going forward.


We have also adopted a leadership development program to enable us to get the most from ourselves and our team, which Phil has taken a key role in.


Working with Innervate has been a rewarding and motivating experience."


Sam Audsley, Director, Thornton Consulting

'I used Innervate for business coaching and also took part in personal coaching sessions with Phil Sims.

During these sessions Phil helped me to reflect on my personal methods of how to deal with stressful situations and how to turn these around to benefit myself at home and professionally.  He also provided me with techniques on how to prioritise and realise how to free up time for myself.

The one thing that I liked was that Phil has a great way of making you open up, recognise negative attitudes and focus on positive ones. I found our sessions to be very informative, enlightening and enjoyable.

I would recommend Phil for personal coaching to people who are feeling overwhelmed in life both in and out of the work place, need assistance with understanding where they need the help and identifying strategies to make a positive change.'

Wendy Belding, Operations Director, Thornton Consulting

Participant, Team Development Workshop, Rail Delivery Group


'Thank you for the time and effort  you have spent over the past year to help me understand, evolve and develop. Without your support, and kindness, it would have been hard for me to work out how to tackle the challenge I had. I know I can do things differently - just because I can!

Phil, thank you for being the most amazing support I have ever received at work - I couldn't have done it without you.'

Director, Rail Delivery Group

'I have worked with Phil over a six month period as my role significantly changed. His support was valuable, especially in talking through leadership challenges and understanding how to work with the various personalities in my growing team. Thank you!'

Tristan Thomas, Head of Marketing and Community, Monzo

'Phil is a very skilled coach, he has a relaxed style which puts you at ease, yet at the same time he challenges you when he needs to, to help tease out honest reflections & learnings.


I experienced some genuine realisations, and coupled with the tools which Phil has provided me with look forward to fully achieving my personal objectives, and living my best life.'

Jenny Parker, Programme Manager, Rail Delivery Group

'Phil's coaching is powerful and motivating. He provides a space that makes you feel both strong and courageous, enabling you to explore your issues. He uses his own personal presence, diligence and humour to help you find your own solutions.


He can help with planning and actions, but also work at a deeper level, helping the client look at what underlies their beliefs and blocks. If you are looking for a coach who will help you create powerful change, then I cannot recommend Phil highly enough.'

Lucy Hare, Coach Trainer, Barefoot Coaching Programme

'With my thanks for the privilege being with you and learning from you. You change lives with your presence.'
