What do my clients say about me?


Do you want to step up in your career?
Are you looking to step up in your career, get a promotion, change role or get more responsibility? Stepping out of your comfort zone and proving you are fit for the next level is one of the hardest things you can do. Senior managers see you in your current role and not in the new position, to prove that you can do the job you’ll need to role model leadership skills, become a better communicator and show you can lead, manage and coach others. With my 3 or 6-month coaching programmes, you’ll get support and practical advice that helps you develop your leadership skills and prove that you have the ability to move into management.

Have you just been given team leadership or management responsibilities?
Are you a new leader or manager, just transitioning into a new role, but struggling to understand and cope with the pressures of leadership? Are you stressed, anxious and worried about your leadership ability? You’re not alone, many people struggle when they first take on a new leadership role. This is because many underestimate the challenges of managing people and resolving conflicts between their team members. With my 3 or 6-month coaching programmes, you’ll become an effective leader quicker avoiding the common pitfalls and errors new leaders make.

Do you feel stuck in your career and life and are struggling to find purpose and meaning?
Sometimes it just doesn’t add up, you have a good career and stable income, but you feel that your life isn’t going the way you intended. Something is missing from your life and you aren’t achieving your goals. You’ve lost your passion and you are struggling to find meaning and purpose. Sometimes all you need to get back on track is having someone who can help you work out what is going on, what you need or want and how you will achieve it. With my 3 or 6-month coaching programmes, you’ll learn how to identify your values, become unstuck and lead a purposeful and meaningful life.

What is professional development and/or life coaching?
Coaching is:

  • A series of conversations that focuses on your individual professional and/or personal growth and development.
  • A process that we enter into willingly with clear expectations and agreements on how the process will work.
  • A relationship, or partnership, that allows anything to be asked, said or considered.

Coaching can be described as a series of guided conversations that enable you to discover and implement solutions to achieve your goals. These solutions, because they are developed by you are more likely to succeed and endure than solutions imposed externally.

My coaching is grounded in but different from therapy
They share similar backgrounds, but coaching is about moving forward and taking action. Overall you may be happy but frustrated with the lack of progress in your career and life. Or you may feel you lack skills in communication, influence and relationship building that you see in others. Coaching is for people that aren’t depressed but feel that they could perform better, or they aren’t living up to their full potential and want to achieve more while living more conscious meaningful lives.

My coaching approaches are informed by my experience and the best practices in therapy. I use a framework called Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT). ACT work focuses on helping people to see the context of their lives, to “work with” unhelpful thoughts and emotions and to “work towards” values and goals. The philosophy is flexible and can be adapted to coaching. I also use ideas and tools from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and a framework called a problem-management and opportunity-development approach to helping.
