I help people think. I believe that clear thinking is the foundation for purposeful, confident action and real change. It helps us make better choices so we can feel good about what we're doing and why we're doing it. Sadly, in our busy lives, the space to think well for ourselves is often squeezed out and we pay the price with busyness, stress and frustration.
I give my clients a calm, insightful space to think straight, tackling overwhelm, indecision and procrastination by getting clear about what really matters and how to focus time, energy and personal strengths effectively. I help them think ahead, to plan for a significant life or career change, a big promotion or perhaps to figure out how to move on from redundancy or other life-changing events. I also help teams think together about better ways of working.
I draw on a variety of coaching tools and models, working with whatever seems to fit for each person and their strengths and challenges. Where it might extend and enrich clients' own thinking, I draw on my experiences of senior leadership, freelancing, introversion, juggling work and family life, volunteering and marathon running.
If you are keen to make changes in your life to find a calmer, clearer way forward, I would love to hear from you. If you can think better, you can be better.
