About me

I am a leadership coach who works with individuals and teams to increase their leadership agility and deliver high performance. I am passionate about developing leaders and coaching them to reach their personal and organisational goals through coaching, mentoring and training.

I specialise in executive and leadership coaching, and personal development. With over 15 years’ experience in HR and training, and 18 years’ experience in senior leadership roles in retail, I have worked with large PLCs and SMEs in a variety of sectors to coach and develop performance with individuals and cross functional teams.

My Focus
I work with both individuals and teams to help them set and achieve their personal and organisational goals within a business context. I offer a supportive environment where clients can identify their own solutions to issues, enabling them to be more effective and develop personally, as well as deliver better results within their work.

I specialise in leadership and executive coaching, personal transition and change coaching, organisational development and change facilitation, performance management, communication and influence, motivation, leadership and management skills programmes, business coaching, strategy facilitation, career development & mentoring, and coaching and mentoring skills.

My Approach

I have a flexible and robust coaching style; working with clients as a facilitator raising self-awareness through conversation, challenge and encouraging self reflection. I utilise a variety of tools and proven techniques to enable clients to work through any limiting beliefs and obstacles to ultimately achieve their objectives. These are tailored to the individuals needs, rather than applying a blanket approach to everyone.

My focus is on your development and I use simple theoretical frameworks that enhance understanding. I am pragmatic and results orientated and help you understand your strengths, your impact on others, and how you can use this information within your everyday working lives.

Once you have made contact I will:

  • Explain what coaching is, how it could work for you and the potential benefits to you and your organisation

  • Outline my style of coaching and my values

  • Agree the mix of coaching sessions (face to face, skype, telephone), and the time line for your coaching – typically 4-6 sessions, but more may be needed depending on your focus.

Together, we will then plan our first session and clarify your coaching needs.At this we will get to know each other to ensure we are compatible to work together; I will explain my role and confidentiality within coaching, and we will begin coaching and map out future sessions and support.I will regularly seek feedback from you, and make adjustments as guided by you.Towards the end of the programme we will review overall progress, successes and any outstanding steps still to be taken

Feedback from my coachees

“This was the best session we’ve had.  Really made me think and challenged why I puts so much pressure on myself.  I realise I need to step back and look at why I does this, as it is causing the stress I have currently.” Coachee, senior executive.

"Again, thank you so much for your help and support! I always come out of these sessions walking a little bit taller and knowing a lot more than when I went in!" Coachee, senior manager

“By having stronger emotional resilience through coaching, this has enabled me to look more logically and clearly at any problem bought to me which has aided in quicker resolution, thank you" Coachee, middle manager.

“I have found the coaching so beneficial and it has helped not only on a work level but also on a personal level too”. Coachee, Middle Manager

"I found our first meeting very insightful and made me feel this is the right approach for me to take".Coachee, career development

"I cannot even begin to explain the impact Annabel has had on me in terms of increasing my confidence and self esteem. She has willingly given her knowledge, experience and expertise. She understood my style of learning and was able to easily go from mentoring to coach mode as required" Mentee, career development
