I came to coaching a few years ago after I received a series of coaching sessions. They were conducted by a terrific coach who was very patient too.
I must admit, at first I thought it might be a load of old mumbo-jumbo, but I quickly realised that - when done well - it's anything but! Coaching is the best bit of "me time", you can have. During coaching sessions, you are given the time and space to make sense of your thoughts; to be challenged and supported; to be the best version of yourself.
And so, fast-forward a few years and I am now an EIA accredited coach.
But my own professional development doesn’t stop there. I'm continuously honing and further developing my coaching skills. This means I continue to have regular coaching sessions myself, and also keep up to speed with the latest research.
This keeps me focused and working at my best, so I can support you in the most effective way possible.
Having seen the sheer transformational potential within coaching over the years, I would feel privileged to work with you to share the power of positive conversation!
I also welcome enquiries from
small business owners and charity leaders.
I have 20+ years' business experience, leading and developing teams across the childcare and charity sectors.
I have 50 years of life experience, and there’s been a lot of life to navigate! Family, children, divorce, bereavement, life-changing moments, relationships, careers... you name it - I’ve experienced it!
But all of this experience enables me to support people through their life's challenges.
Remember, through all the challenges in life, there is always a ray of hope and a reason to keep going.
Am I the Right Coach for You?
We're all different! Please feel free to book a
complimentary session, and we can have a no-obligation chat to see if we're a good fit for each other.
Coaching sessions are usually conducted via ZOOM (similar to Skype).
Alternatively, we can use the good old-fashioned phone!
However, ZOOM means we can see each other and this improves our interaction.
Face-to-face sessions are available if required.
If you’re unsure if coaching is for you, this will give you further insight; no mumbo-jumbo - I promise!
For me, authenticity is about presence - living in the moment with conviction and confidence. Most importantly, it's about staying true to yourself.
"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”
Empowering others to develop and achieve their goals. Giving support and guidance where needed.
“We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already.”
Striving to show compassion and kindness to others.To offer help and support when needed.
“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.”
Dalai Lama XIV
