About me

Time to make changes? Looking to gain clarity, stay on track, notice more about yourself and others?

Are you looking for a coach who also has a solid psychological understanding…someone who can help you with your emotional world whilst also keeping focus on the future? Maybe you are looking for a coach with a range of experience in business management so that your context is understood?

Then it might be worth taking the next step…contacting me for a conversation about what you would like to gain from coaching. Together we will consider what would be the best fit for you at this stage of your life. How can I help you to identify your hopes for the future? What helps you to stay on track…and also what trips you up?

You might already know what you want in the future, perhaps you have a clear objective, or perhaps you have a problem or difficulty that seems to be in the way of success, or maybe you're at a time of transition with so many options you can’t see a clear way forward?

Our coaching journey might be straightforward and clear towards your goals – and, very often, unexpected surprises reveal themselves along the way… a realisation of your talents, dreams, passion or purpose in life. Sometimes a new direction becomes apparent...or the journey doesn’t quite unfold as planned.

The essence of coaching is to know and understand more about yourself – how you learn, how you respond and navigate change, how you can support yourself better in the creation of your future. Every coaching journey is personal and unique. We will work together to find the approach that best fits you, and is most helpful to you.

My coaching practice is built on many years as a counsellor and psychotherapist. This has given me an excellent understanding of psychological theory and practice – and, more than that, a long history of working with people from all walks of life; with varied backgrounds, family situations, choices and lifestyles.
