I am an experienced qualified Business, Life & Public Speaking Coach. I am also an Accredited DISC Personality Profiler. I have over 25 years of managing Teams using coaching to help and support others to develop, grow and achieve their goals whether in their businesses, professionally or personally.
Coaching is the most valuable investment you can make. I believe passionately that coaching is the way for you to maximise your potential and to grow your business. Through coaching, I would work in partnership with you to help you transform your business, your life.
Perhaps you feel that you are not moving forward, stuck in a rut, or just don't know where you or your business is going? Maybe, you feel it is like trudging through treacle, with no end in sight, no reward for all of your hard work? Possibly, the light has gone out at the end of your tunnel, and you don't know how to ignite the flame again? Perhaps you are fed up with doing the same thing day in day out and its time to change your life, or move your business to the next level, but don't know how to get there?
Image that you are clear about where you are going, and have taken those steps to get there. Image that spring in your step, with your dreams in reach, and more to come in the future. Image you have stopped doing what you don't enjoy and have started doing what you love - the flame ignited - with all the benefits this change will bring you and your loved ones.
As a qualified and experienced coach, I can help you achieve your dreams, your personal aims and desires. To help you move forward to take back control, to achieve those achievements you only dream about now. To turn your dreams into reality, with all the rewards and benefits this will bring you. To live the life you deserve.
In simple terms, my coaching closes the gap between where you are now to where you want to be, much faster than if you embark on this journey alone.

I also believe passionately in the benefits of DISC Personality Profiling. How it can help you and/or your Team/Organisation gain a better understand of how to communicate more effectively with others with all the associated benefits this brings.
I offer a free consultation by telephone or Skype to explain how coaching and/or DISC Personality Profiling will work for you.
What is my Approach?
- I provide professional coaching via the telephone, video calls or face to face meetings, or a combination. For face-to-face sessions, I can visit your work place or a number of locations. How we work together is your choice.
- My approach is always client-led helping, supporting and encouraging you in identifying what you want, and how you can move forward to achieve this, whether in your business, professionally, or personally.
- Working with clients on an individual collaborative basis providing space and insight to help them achieve greater confidence, success and rewards in their life.
- Working with individuals, teams or organisations, across the private and public section, to help achieve change that is sustainable and lasting.
- Working with businesses to help them grow and achieve greater success.
- My aim is to help you predict your behaviour towards others and how other people behave, by individual, Team or Organisational DISC Personality Profiling tests, providing assessments on the tests and workshops on DISC types and personality profiles. Understanding of others and how they react and interact can bring about change, improved communication and increased sales performances.
- I am based in Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK.

Over 25 years of managing Teams using coaching to help and support others to develop and grow.
As to some of my work experience, I have considerable knowledge of staffing and management issues including performance and conflict management, appraisals, job evaluations, income generation, customer service, team reviews, training and public speaking. I have also worked with businesses for more decades than I am prepared to share!
One of my passions is public speaking and helping others develop this essential life skill! I also provide mentoring when coaching clients in this important area.
Here are just a few testimonials of my work:
"Lesley is very empathetic and really respects the right of her clients to lead the session with her guidance. She has a lot of experience and wisdom. However at no stage was she ever tempted to "lead" me in her direction rather than mine. Instead this experience and wisdom came through in her very empathetic approach and her open questioning techniques. Lesley is very comfortable with silence and really gives you time to reflect on questions that she has asked you rather than interrupting you with more information. She is able to deal with quite complex issues with a very calm manner and an ability to ask the right questions in a sensitive and caring way. " Mike
"I am a very motivated and committed person so it has been easy for me to continue to make progress in the areas that Lesley and I discussed. However, Lesley’s easygoing and calm approach really made it so much easier for me to get the ball rolling. I was held accountable for my actions although we may not have spent more than one session on those goals, Lesley always checked in with how I was getting on. Lesley’s natural ability to be able to pick up on my tone and question key words that I used during the sessions meant that I was really able to define what I wanted as well as search for options that I may not necessarily have come up with on my own. She made me question why I wanted to achieve certain goals and made me delve deeper into what it meant to me." Jayne
“Lesley is a really positive person and listens to her client’s needs. Lesley continues to empower me to achieve my goals. I leave each session feeling energized and positive about my next steps. Lesley is supportive, non-judgmental and genuine, something that I value a great deal. She always goes the extra mile to ensure that you feel supported and are in the best possible place to achieve your best. " Claire
"From the outset Lesley created a safe environment for me to create my goal for each session, challenged me to clarify exactly what my goal was and then helped me explore the options I could have so that I could find the best to take forward. Throughout she has challenged me when I thought I could not do something and has helped me see that I can do it. Lesley has asked the provocative questions that got me thinking when I hit a 'roadblock' and has always held me accountable for following through on the actions that I agreed to do." David
