About me

I help people with personal workplace issues so they can reduce stress, be happier at work and secure their financial income.

I coach people who are feeling lost, stressed, fearful, anxious, stuck or threatened at work. I understand first-hand the reasons people feel stuck in a job they dislike; lacking motivation; dissatisfied with their own level of achievement; powerless to change stressful working relationships. I also appreciate the impact on personal well-being, self-esteem and mental health.

With a career of over 20 years as a HR professional in large organisations such as Sony, Logica, Thames Water and TATA Consultancy Services I know how tough it can be when things aren't going the way you want. I'm experienced at working with individuals, line managers and their teams and I believe that each person deserves to be treated with respect and dignity.

I have always been pragmatic about life and business challenges and I use my expertise to help others tap in, turn on and tune in to who they are, what they want and how they can live a fulfilling life both personally and professionally.

My coaching style is open and client-centred, challenging yet supportive. I may use practical tools and techniques to support the conversation and there is always an opportunity for reflection and exploration.
