As a coach and a therapist, Ted focuses upon asking good questions which help the coachee to think about things from different angles and perspectives.

He also believes that thinking differently is not enough, and that the key to real, lasting change is to help someone to act differently and to “try out” new ways of being.

As an educator Ted’s key stills lie in putting things in plain language and offering detailed, specific and constructive feedback in order to help coaches and therapists to improve their own practice. Ted is a knowledgeable, passionate and engaging speaker who offers real, practical examples and suggestions in order to bring life to theoretical ideas.
