Total Coaching Solutions provides a range of learning and development services, all of which are based upon coaching approaches. These are divided into three main areas:

Executive and 1:1 coaching

Executive coaching is usually delivered to CEOS, directors and senior leaders. In addition to executive coaching, we provide specialist coaching to assist individuals in important career decisions and changes.

Coaching training

Many organisations want to develop internal coaching capability. We provide a range of ILM-accredited and non-accredited coach training programmes, aimed at senior leaders, middle managers and first line managers.

Creating a coaching culture

We develop strategic partnerships with organisations that wish to develop coaching cultures across their organisation, in which managers are able to coach colleagues, staff and, as appropriate, customers. We work with them in their individual journeys and offer supervisory support to internal coaches.

Sales training

We provide a range of bespoke sales training programmes.  

About us

Keith Nelson is the managing director of the business, and has been a qualified executive coach since the 1990s. He is the founder of coach training programmes at Cambridge University and has experience of a wide range of public and private sector organisations. Our coaching philosophy is twofold:

To introduce and apply coaching as a key approach in achieving world class performance.

To apply coaching approaches with integrity that brings the best out of people and creates a positive working environment. 


More About Your Total Coach

At Your Total Coach, we’re passionate about coaching and the positive difference it can make to the success of the people we work with. Established in 2001 by CEO Keith Nelson, three founding principles still lie at the heart of everything we do:

  • Performance: working to increase performance at individual, team or organisational level
  • Sustainability: benefits are experienced long after the development programme has finished
  • Capability: Build someone a bridge and they may cross it; show them how to build a bridge and they will discover new landscapes and be able to ford any future obstacles. Real change only happens when we acquire capability.
