David Birch

David is a qualified coach, supervisor, psychotherapist and mediator who brings over 30 years’ international business experience to helping individuals, groups and organisations make a difference to the world.

His practice is founded on the understanding that change occurs within and through relationships. He combines expert facilitation skills, psychological insight and creative embodied methods to help his clients reflect, connect and relate to one another with sincerity and wholeheartedness. His skill is in making it safe enough to explore and address the most challenging issues, however tricky and awkward they may be.

His work has taken him all over the world with clients such as Arup, Buckingham Palace, Diabetes UK, Havas, Health Foundation, HM Government, ICRC, International Transport Workers’ Federation, Lonely Planet, LVMH, numerous local authorities and NHS trusts, National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), PricewaterhouseCoopers, Save the Children International and several UK universities. In 2015 he was a member of a small team who won the EFMD gold award for their organisation development work with NIHR.

Since 2008 he has been a faculty member on the internationally renowned Ashridge Masters in Executive Coaching programme (both individual and team coaching pathways) and since 2014 has co-led the Ashridge Postgraduate Diploma in Coaching and OD Supervision.

David shares his north London home with his partner, their small dog and occasionally their grown-up daughter. He is an enthusiastic consumer of the arts and a keen open water swimmer.

It takes courage to express more of who we are. When we move out from the shadows and fully inhabit ourselves, we risk being seen and heard. We have more of an impact. Sometimes we make mistakes. But once we get used to that, life becomes a lot more fun.
