About me

Career Coach, Personal Development Coach and Business Start-up Coach. I have many years experience guiding people into the right career for them, working with individuals on their personal or career development or turning an idea into a viable business proposition.

I take a holistic view of work and life and try to help individuals understand themselves better and align who they are with what they do, being guided by what motivates them in life.

My working life is divided between being a Career Practitioner at the University of Southampton and private career and development coaching. Please visit my website or get in touch for more information about the ways in which I can help you attain your goals in life, business and work.


I am based in Southampton where I meet clients in my quiet and private coaching room. I also do Skype or telephone coaching if more convenient. I am prepared to meet at clients professional premises or in a neutral location if this provides a better environment for you but additional costs may be involved for extra time taken in traveling to you.

Coaching is built around 30, 60 or 90 Minute minute sessions and prices start from £30.

I offer a 30 minute goal-setting discussion prior to the commencement of any agreed coaching in order to help you determine your goals and desires and to put together a proposal that will usually be a combination of face-to-face, Skype and guided personal research and reflection. An all inclusive fee for such a programme will be offered.

The cost of a 30 minute goal setting sessions is £30 and is normally done by Skype or phone but can be face-to-face if possible.

For those of you who prefer a more structured approach, I have developed some Career Coaching Programmes and information about these can be found on my website -
