About me

I am a certified coach working with clients with a range of needs, including career and life changes, developing a business, confidence, career challenges, growth as a leader, direction and purpose.

Here are some of the ways I support clients; 

  • Getting to know yourself better – who you are, and who you’re not
  • Finding your voice, expressing yourself effectively 
  • Building better relationships
  • Becoming more confident and resilient
  • Getting a clear sense of direction in your career or business
  • Becoming the leader you know you can be
  • Thinking strategically about you career and your life
  • Finding a better work-life balance
  • Feeling stronger and clearer in everything you do
  • Feeling more alive and more yourself at work and beyond
  • Finding more alignment between who you are and what you do
  • Living and working with a greater sense of purpose 

You might be struggling with a challenging situation at work or facing a significant transition in your career.  Perhaps you’re experiencing growing pains as a leader, creating or a managing a business, or trying to establish yourself as a consultant or freelancer.  Maybe you’re feeling stuck and unsure how to move forwards, or your work just doesn’t feel like you.

Our coaching will offer you the time and space to get a truer sense of who you really are and what you really want, so that we can establish a clear foundation and focus from which you can make practical, meaningful changes wherever you need them most.

We start with a 90-minute session where you can explain what you're looking for and see how we might work together.  This is free of charge with no obligation to continue.

My Background

I introduced fantasy football to the UK in 1991, steering Fantasy League for the last three decades, as it established itself into the mainstream and the fabric of football.

It's been a journey that was as challenging as it was rewarding, where I learnt as much about myself as about running a business

Over time, I've come to understand how important it is to get hold of who you are and what really matters, so you can bring them together to work in a more fulfilling way.

As an ICF accredited coach, I provide leadership coaching, career coaching and group coaching to help clients become more purposeful and more themselves at critical points in their careers.

Feedback from Clients

"an intuitive, incisive and empathic coach who takes a genuine interest”

“after each session, I felt inspired and empowered to move forward with my project."

“warm, thoughtful and encouraging”

“come away from sessions with actions and confidence to take forward my ideas and make meaningful change."

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified coach from the Academy of Executive Coaches, working with a cross-section of clients including leaders, managers, consultants and founders on issues such as purpose, authenticity, career transition and leadership.

I founded Fantasy League, the company that originated fantasy football in the 1990's.  Leading the company for three decades, I developed teams that evolved the business through an ever-changing landscape; building partnerships with The Telegraph, BBC, Sky Sports, Barclays and JP Morgan.

Alongside one-to-one coaching I also run groups bringing peers together to work and support one another towards important work and life goals.

Coaching Groups

A supportive and encouraging space that complements your one-to-one coaching.

You also have the option to join a group of peers that meet regularly to support and encourage one another towards important work / life goals.

As part of a close-knit group you will find:

  • Space to think out loud and get fresh, unbiased, perspective
  • Access to collective experiences, resources and connections
  • A trusted space to bounce ideas and opportunities off others
  • A catalyst to think more creatively and expansively
  • Accountability in creating and attaining goals
  • A combined wisdom much greater than the sum of its parts

Additional information

I typically work with you over several months to ensure you can put changes into place in a lasting way.

We start with a free 90 minute session to understand your motivations for coaching and to explore our fit working together.

Then we design a programme together, which will typically comprise a programme of 60 or 90 sessions over a 3-6 month period.

Rates are flexible and dependent on the length of sessions and duration of your programme.

You also have the option to join a small group of peers where you can work in a supportive environment with others.
