Sat Panesar – Partner



Sat has been on an incredible journey of transformation, beginning as a sceptic of counselling/personal development programmes.  He is now a passionate practitioner and advocate of therapeutic interventions, having seen the positive results in his own life in terms of his health, relationships and work-life balance.


His journey to becoming a Reach partner really stands out because of his original doubts – and yet Sat was prepared to look at all aspects of his behaviour, attitudes and values and in doing so faced his incongruences with great honesty and courage.  He did not shy away from thoroughly examining his limitations and shortcomings.  Once he completed his own personal journey he decided he wanted to commit himself to helping others fulfil their potential.


Sat began his postgraduate training with us and to date he is the only person on the Postgraduate Certificate in Coaching (Coaching Plus) to have achieved 10 distinctions – which is an incredible achievement, given the challenge and demands of the course.  This is one of the reasons that Sat was asked to become a partner, jointly overseeing the coaching arm of our practice.


We know he will excel at this as he has with everything else that he has done.  We are proud to have him on board.


Here’s what Sat has to say…

I am a business & lifestyle coach, helping people to reach their potential and be the best they can be by providing a sustainable approach to achieving a healthy work & lifestyle balance. Following my degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Wales, I accrued 25 years business experience within the corporate sector, which included senior management level sales, marketing, business development and technical roles within national and international commercial organisations.


In parallel and later full-time, I have run my own business for more than 10 years as a professional Children’s DJ & Entertainer, connecting children and families to their joy and happiness. I am a versatile and adaptable individual and my other ventures have included experience as a Tennis Coach, Science Presenter, Quiz Master, YouTube Presenter, Podcaster and Voice-over Artist.


My personal growth journey with Easton Hamilton has been pivotal in enabling me to achieve positive transformation in the key areas of body, mind, spirit and environment through Reach’s holistic, integrative and person-specific approach embodied in the core model ‘The Story of Health’, which proved to be and continues to be the template for my ongoing development.


My journey of personal discovery awoke me to the human condition and the truth about myself, this inspired me to want to help other people to find their own sustainable solutions. The Reach methodologies, that have been central to creating sustainable personal growth for me in so many aspects of my life, are integral to my coaching approach ‘Coaching Plus’, a modality beyond conventional coaching since it is underpinned by the comprehensive ‘Story of Health’ model.


‘Coaching Plus’ has enabled me to take clients beyond their presenting issues. So, as well as supporting individuals with immediate issues (e.g. career change, relationship problems and health & fitness goals); applying the core Reach principle of Synergy, using a ‘Whole Person’ approach, has empowered me to provide clients with sustainable solutions, encompassing the multi-factorial components of the human condition – body, mind, spirit and environment.


I began my coaching career by informally coaching & mentoring those who showed interest in my significant business & lifestyle changes and exploring their own personal goals and aspirations. I then undertook a Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring at the University of Warwick and subsequently the Postgraduate Certificate in Coaching with Reach.


I am currently undertaking the Postgraduate Certificate in Holistic and Integrative Psychotherapy, whilst continuing on my own path of further personal development.
