About me

After 25 years experience working in sports coaching and educational leadership, I am now using my skills and experience to coach professionals to help them develop their potential and achieve their goals. My clients include blue-chip company managers, headteachers and individuals who wish to enhance their personal or professional lives.

I coach in an empathic and non-judgemental manner which challenges clients to review and reinvigorate their performance. Each session concludes with a brief evaluation, and I complete a coaching log which is shared with the client.

A typical contract will be for no more than 6 sessions and spread between six weeks and six months.
