For the past thirty years I have been informally coaching friends, colleagues and associates both in my professional and personal life.
In 2010 I took professional NLP coaching training to facilitate turning my passion into a career. An instinctive coach, counsellor, advisor and mentor it was a natural and obvious step for me to utilise my skill set to set up my own motivational coaching business. Nicknamed the “coaching super nanny”, I have specialised in helping my clients not only survive but thrive in both their business and personal life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Certified NLP Practitioner Coach having successfully completed the International Teaching Seminars (ITS) course taught by Ian McDermott. I chose this course for its superb reputation for training Practitioners with unusually high skill levels. The ITS NLP Practitioner Programme is part of the Henley Business School and the University of Reading MSc in Coaching & Behavioural Change.
The combination of top NLP training and my own, very personal "University of Life" qualifications have given me a unique ability to help others. From busy parents, who are paying the price of too much juggling, to professionals faced with work-related issues; from clients needing support in times of change, to dealing with crises of confidence and self belief - my training and experience have equipped me to provide the tools, help and support needed for my clients to make life enhancing, positive changes and enable them to be happier, more fulfilled individuals going forward.
I constantly seek to further extend my ongoing personal professional development by networking with fellow coaches, attending workshops, seminars and training programmes.
I am an Associate Member of the Association for Coaches. Membership is awarded to individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to high levels of coaching standards and excellence within the coaching profession. The Association for Coaches is the leading independent professional body for coaches and exists to promote best practice, and raise awareness and standards across the coaching industry.
