Lewis Nelson

Lewis is an experienced Executive and Career Coach and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor having trained at the Institute of Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy in Hendon (Dip. Psychotherapeutic counselling).

During his career with BP he was Exploration and Appraisal Manager in the Exploration division, whilst actively pursuing his other interest in developing people. Roles included leading BP’s geoscience recruitment in Europe, the early development of BP’s European graduates and the delivery of the company’s technical global leadership programme.

Lewis works with people facing big transitions in their lives. This might involve career advice and support at any point in their career, helping them to understand for themselves what best suits them, practically and emotionally – and how to achieve it. Alternatively, somebody in a large organisation on the cusp of management may require help to develop their own leadership voice, to ensure they retain their authenticity and play from their natural strengths.

Lewis’s blend of corporate and psychotherapeutic experience provides him with the skills and empathy to hold clients through these challenging periods.

“We brought Lewis into our organisation to help our employees at a difficult time. The staff he worked with were from very diverse international backgrounds and from all levels within the company. Nevertheless, he was able to flex his style and meet his clients and their needs just where they were at that moment. As a result, his impact was very positive, particularly in view of the circumstances”.
