A Business Coach and A Full Member of the Association of Coaching and Institute of Leadership and Management, I have been working as a coach since 2003. I specialise in helping leaders and business owners bring their passion and purpose together to provide them with greater profit, in health, wealth and happiness.
I particularly enjoy working with business leaders, helping them to align their passion with their purpose and bring them prosperity in all areas of their lives.
Here is Emma's story:
Emma is a 39 year old woman who has moved from the corporate arena where she worked as a middle manager, into working for herself.
She has been self employed for 3 years and is at the stage where she has too much work for one person to do and wants to get her life back - whilst still growing her successful business.
She works evenings and weekends and hasn’t had a holiday for 3 years.
Her challenges are how to move into delegating, setting up formal processes and procedures, finding the right people to work with her and understand her ethos and passion for her business.
She is kept awake at night thinking about her business, planning new ideas for developing her business and then worrying about the costs and commitment of employing others.
This is starting to take its toll and she is ready to move forward and take action.
Working with Emma, we identify her goals for herself and her business, find a goal that provides the purpose and meaning for the hard work she has already done and more that she is preparing for.
We work to find her time to get off the treadmill in her weekly routine, refreshing her energies and allowing her to see her tasks more clearly.
We work on ensuring she has the confidence and drive to move her goals forward and that her fears of failing are less than her fears of not driving her business forward, using this opportunity to be the great business woman she was inside.
We work on her business and marketing plan, setting her strategic direction and her vision for her business, help her identify the knowledge (e.g. employment law,) and skills ( e.g. managing others ) she requires and then the knowledge, ( role and responsibilities, vision for the business, policies and procedures, administration, IT, social media,)attitudes ( “ can do”brilliant customer service, if a job needs doing, do it etc.,) and skills ( e.g. people and organisation) she requires of others.
We relook at her goals and ensure the time scales are appropriate and we set a time to review the progress in the future.
Emma achieved her first goals within weeks and stretched her goals to increase her profit margin.
She became more confident with the profit within her business and could see that by employing others to work casually with her, she could work to her strengths and increase her profit and satisfaction further.
She employed a number of people she knew on a casual basis and her profit increased sufficiently for her to formally employ 3 trusted people who she had nurtured and she was confident that her business was safe in their hands, leaving her to work on her core business.
We worked on sleeping patterns, what to do with spiralling self doubt, ensuring time out and balance and Emma now has a super business, bringing in a very good income for her and her family and aligning her purpose to her passion.
Emma is just one example of how Coaching can provide results - if you want to know how Coaching can bring you the results you want, get in touch.
In the first instance, we will have a chat and I will help you to define your first goals, if we want to continue to work together, we then decide the where, when and the cost.

Coaching is a valuable resource, based upon confidential conversations between the Coach and Coachee in a supportive, yet challenging learning environment. Above all, coaching is about results. It is about results that can be seen, experienced, measured and quantified.
I have skills that I have learnt over many years, however you are the person with all the resources you need, we work on identifying them and putting them into action.
The work we do together is led by you - you work hard with a coach and you get great results
