Christian Pankhurst is a world-leading authority on heart-centered communication and heart intelligent relationships. He is the creator of the Heart IQ™ Method, a coaching framework that specializes in group dynamics and intimacy development.
In 2009, he was awarded the title of ‘Britain’s Next Top Coach’ after winning a national coaching competition with a majority of votes from 92 countries and landing a £100,000 media production package. Following this success, Christian opened the Heart IQ™ Academy in 2011, creating a professional training organization that has certified over 250 personal and small group coaches as well as large event facilitators in over 25 countries around the world.
Graduating as a Chiropractor in 2002, Christian has worked closely with many world-leading experts in the field of personal transformation. In 2006, after extensive study with mentors from multiple disciplines, he began developing a new approach to coaching individuals and couples that integrates practices from natural healing philosophies, various spiritual teachings, therapeutic psychology, dance and movement modalities, martial arts, embodiment practices, non-violent communication, circling and numerous healing arts disciplines. This grand synthesis provides students with a deep understanding of the human condition and gives them the essential tools they need to help individuals and couples both heal and awaken.
Christian is also the author of 'Insights To Intimacy' - Why Relationships Fail and How To Make Them Work.
Christian lives in the Netherlands with his partner, Sumir, at the Heart IQ™ Headquarters - a stunning four-hectare retreat and community center near Groningen. Together, they lead the dedicated Heart IQ™ Network team to spread the work of Heart IQ™ around the world.
