About me

I am a qualified career and life coach, specialising in helping people progress with their career and find more fulfilling and meaningful work.

If you are a manager who no longer finds satisfaction in your work or who can’t decide whether to move on to another role or stay in your current role and find more effective ways of dealing with stress and increasing resilience, I can help.

◼ Do you spend so much time dealing with staffing issues that you don’t have time to do the rest of your job?
◼ Are you constantly being pulled in different directions, either by senior managers or by your team?
◼ Do you find you’re under constant pressure to achieve results, but your manager and direct reports don’t understand how much stress you’re under?
◼ Do you still love your work, but feel worn out with the constant pressure to produce results?
◼ Are you worried about burning out if nothing changes?
◼ Have you forgotten why you went into your current line of work and need some help finding your purpose?
◼ Have you lost confidence in your ability?
◼ Do you feel as though you have no one to talk to at work and need a trusted partner?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, I can help. I have almost three decades of professional experience, most of which has been in leadership positions, and have experienced each of these issues. I have worked in the public, private and third sectors and understand the pressure faced by managers every day. I currently work part-time for a housing association as well as running my coaching business part-time.

I support you through a series of individual coaching sessions where I will help you set goals and work out a plan to achieve these goals. I will challenge your ways of thinking if these have been holding you back and help you work out what you really want.

If you're interested in finding out more, email me to arrange a free, no-obligation consultation where we can discuss your needs and how we might work together. If you decide you'd like to continue, we can arrange further sessions on a fortnightly or monthly basis, depending on your preference.

My professional experience started in the publishing industry where I worked for over a decade before changing career and moving into the social housing sector, working specifically with people with mental health problems. I moved on to work with other client groups before becoming a coach.

Having changed career myself and having dealt with many of the issues faced by my clients, I can help people gain clarity and work out their next steps.
