About My Business:
Peter G Combos

His many clients and friends affectionately know Coach Peter as Uncle Pete.
Peter was born on the sunny island of Cyprus during troubled times. By age six, Peter had already seen his father arrested and held as a political prisoner. The experience of being shot at, during the armed struggle for the independence of Cyprus, contributed to moulding his dynamic character and personality.
In Australia during the 1960’s, Peter noticed the cultural contrasts that coloured those days. It was during those times that he took a very serious interest in the field of Personal Development, a field that he pursues with an unquenchable passion to this very day.
Pete has lived a very colourful life and is characterised by many as a true survivor.
Among other achievements, he was married and had four children and two grandchildren. Survived being shot at, during the struggle for the independence of Cyprus. Survived life-threatening cancer. Lived through a terrorist bombing in the Mediterranean, which led to him being a guest of a Middle Eastern government for five days. Survived divorce in the Family Law Courts of Sydney. Moved to Canberra to be married for a second time.
Against fierce opposition, he established Life Coaching That Works in Canberra, Australia. Uncle Pete aims to provide quality coaching to business executives, special interest groups and to every person that is interested in improving their quality of life and consistently perform at their best.
Coach Peter actively pursues opportunities for Coaching and Empowering individuals from within all levels of society, from the Government Sector to Private Enterprise, from the CEO to the under-resourced, the under-privileged, and the disenfranchised.
A working career that began as an office boy saw him rise to Divisional Chief Accountant for an Australian Multi-National company. Throughout his life, both on and off work, Peter has shown non-judgemental empathy and compassion towards his fellow man. This attitude has evolved him into the finely tuned Life Coach that he is today.
Peter has a natural talent for active listening and has always applied his skills towards helping others without pre-judgment, or prejudice. This practice is one of the fundamental elements of his Life Coaching Principles.
Following his move to the A.C.T. Peter made the conscious decision to focus his efforts on full time Life Coaching.
His many talents and well-rounded life experience has more than amply equipped him with Life Coaching skills.
