About me

I offer leadership and development coaching for personal and professional success.

I coach for organisations and privately on all sorts of issues to do with life and work: I have been coaching in private practice for ten years and have well into the thousands of coaching hours. I am continually bowled over by the wonderful variety of life journeys and choices my clients take and the resourcefulness, sparkle, humour and integrity they show. Each journey and situation and choice is different, and yet there are also patterns that bind us and similarities in journeys and choices along the way. The experience I now bring to the table is an advantage and while each situation and person is different and unique - most clients successfully take their next steps within about 4-6 months.

My typical client is thinky (the vast majority are Oxbridge or Russell school graduates), most are strongly motivated by some form of social, justice and /or environmental drivers, most are or have been in the middle to top of their career structures, as leaders, and many are taking a modern portfolio approach to their lives and careers. Some are taking time out to raise families or set up own organisations or businesses, or planning for retirement. I also work a lot with SAR, faith and emergency services personnel (there is often discounted pro-bono availability for these client groups- please ask).

I do work with clients who are feeling burned-out, blocked, unhappy, confused and occasionally with various non-neurotypical conditions such as high functioning autism / asbergers: However clients do have to be functioning and operational on a day to day level, otherwise other support such as psychotherapy and or a medical pathway may be more appropriate in the first instance.


I coach in person across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, London, and Cardiff / South Wales, and via phone, facetime or skype just about anywhere!

I use Skype and face-time a lot for coaching, because it avoids the extra travel time and expense for clients: Clients can also chop and change between face to face and skype/phone to fit their diary and sessions can be changed up to 36h beforehand.  Everyone is different and I offer flexible coaching to recognize that.

I help you understand your strengths, your aims, your values, your impact on others, your blind spots, and your leadership patterns; and how you can use this awareness and information positively within your everyday working and private life.

Clients sign up for a number of sessions per month- just like a gym membership. Everyone is different -so my aim is to provide a range of options so that you can choose what will best suit you and your issue.

The booking system is online and automatic - and you pay online using STRIPE - so its very simple to use- you can book, pay and even cancel or reschedule online at the click of a button.


If you are unsure whether coaching is right for you just now, or just want to talk over your issue I am happy to speak with you.

Is it a quick fix? Most clients see me for between 3 and 6 months, depending on their issue, availability and the frequency of coaching that suits. Many then check in again as and when needed as their situations change and develop over the next few years, perhaps by phone, skype, or for another single session or two.
