I provide one-to-one workplace coaching to help people develop their performance, behaviour, confidence and mind-set, so they can realise their full potential and advance their careers.


I work with a diverse client set and coach at all levels from junior employees to senior executives, but my aim is to always enable my clients to achieve and surpass the goals that they bring to our sessions. My areas of expertise are:


  • Gaining clarity and insight

  • Building confidence and self-esteem

  • Thinking ‘outside the box’

  • Motivating people and aligning their values with what they do

  • ‘Holding up the mirror’

  • Career decision-making



I work with individuals on a personal level to explore life questions, increase confidence, help them make powerful choices when they are stuck, and find a new purpose that aligns with their values. I work with people who are struggling with low self-esteem or a lack of confidence, women balancing the demands of motherhood with a career, or those who are unfulfilled in their career and/or life.


Specific areas of expertise include:

  • Career coaching

  • Coping with challenges and difficult phases in life

  • Building confidence and self-esteem

  • Helping mothers return to work following a parental career break

  • Working out answers to difficult decisions in life

Being coached is daunting. It’s like standing in front of a gym instructor whilst doing a fitness assessment, or being watched by a driving instructor sitting beside you. So it’s important that you feel completely comfortable with your coach, that there’s trust, and that the style of coaching works for you. My style can be summarised as:


  • Relaxed and supportive, balanced with ruthless compassion

  • Warm, direct and honest

  • Encouraging and empathetic

  • Non-judgemental


The feedback I get from clients is that I build rapport quickly, and am good at ‘holding up a mirror’ to create insight into themselves, allowing them to get to the heart of the matter swiftly. I’m passionate about enabling people to best leverage their strengths, challenging ineffectual behaviours, as well as aligning people’s values with what they do and who they’re being. The latter I think is the secret to creating a life that is joyful and fulfilling.

I fully believe in the value of coaching and the improvements it can make to all areas of your life, from the workplace, to your relationships with yourself, your friends and family. The benefits of coaching truly are endless, but here are a few examples:


  • Generates improvements in individuals’ performance / targets / goals

  • Increases openness to personal learning and development

  • Helps identify solutions to specific work-related issues

  • Creates greater ownership and responsibility

  • Improves relationships with work colleagues and enhances teamwork

  • Helps to develop self-awareness

  • Improves specific skills or behaviour

  • Provides greater clarity in roles and objectives

  • Produces greater motivation and productivity

  • Enhances decision-making skills

  • Improves confidence

  • Gives more satisfaction with life and work

  • Improves time management and work performance

  • Enhances communication skills


You are the one in control of what outcome you’d like to achieve from the coaching, and questions we might investigate can be wide ranging, from small every day issues, right up to the big picture.

I offer a free consultation, either in person, over the phone, or via Skype, so please contact me to find out more.
