Annabel Graham MAC, MAOCS - Leadership & Team Development Specialist, Supervisor
I’m an accredited Master Executive and team coach, and coach supervisor working with individuals & teams to help enable high performance and personal development.
I believe everyone has the ability to be a great leader and inspire teams to deliver outstanding results. They need to develop self awareness, learn to manage themselves to be the best version they can be, and develop a reflective practice in order to embed their new ways as "being" leaders, build on their successes, and engage themselves and others in lifeline learning. That’s where I come in.
As an Executive Coach: I work with individuals from emerging leaders to Board Directors to enable them to develop their authentic leadership style, overcome challenges and change their behaviour to be more effective and in their roles. I work with clients as a facilitator, raising self-awareness through conversation, challenge and encouraging self-reflection. I also work with individuals on career coaching.
As a Team Coach: I work with teams across all levels, enabling them to develop a high performance culture. I use Strengthscope™, DiSC® and Lencioni’s 5 Behaviours™ to create insight and allow teams to develop and deliver more effectively for themselves and their stakeholders. I also support with business coaching and defining strategic direction.
As a Coach Supervisor: I work with individual coaches and groups of coaches to co create an environment where they feel safe to explore their work and stretch their thinking and skills, enabling them to develop their reflective practice and learning
I have a flexible coaching style and work with clients as a facilitator, raising self-awareness and enabling personal development using conversation, supportive challenge and encouraging self reflection. I enable clients to work through any limiting beliefs and obstacles by drawing on a variety of coaching techniques, which I tailor to the client and situation.
I blend a systemic approach to my work with clean language, constellations and metaphor work, enabling clients to increase their emotional intelligence, influence and effectiveness. That may mean we simply talk, get creative with images or space, or use the outdoors as a landscape for reflection. Whatever works best for the client.

Unlike many coaches who charge for weekly sessions, my coaching is based on longer, more in depth sessions every 4-6 weeks, with packages lasting 3,6 or 12 months.
You can select from a variety of coaching packages, depending on your requirements. These sessions can be face to face, by phone or skype/Zoom.
1 x 2 hour focussed session (ideal for a 1 off issue or as quarterly reflection)
2 x 2 hour sessions (over 3 months)
4 x 2 hour sessions (over 6 months)
6-8 x 2 hour sessions (over 12 months)
Team coaching packages and leadership development programmes are bespoked to the client, so please email for a further discussion.

Testimonials from my Coaches/Mentees/Supervisees
"I have been working with Annabel for around 18 months during a challenging period at work. She has provided me with a range of helpful strategies and tools, that have really helped me understand how I operate, and that I am now introducing to my team. Annabel is always friendly and supportive, yet asks those challenging questions you know you should be asking yourself, which really improve your self awareness and insight. I would not hesitate in recommending Annabel to anyone looking for a coach to help them move forward." Coachee, Director
"I first met Annabel in 2014 on a training programme. Through her delivery of this programme Annabel inspired me to want to learn more which has led to me following a path of continued learning and self discovery since then. Annabel is always respectful, compassionate and non-judgemental in her approach to coaching which makes it easy to talk through anything with her. I find Annabel helps me to be completely honest with myself and hold myself accountable without judging. She has a vast amount of knowledge and tools which she shares and with her support I have made so many positive changes to the person to the one I was three years ago. She is helping me move forward both personally and professionally and I cannot recommend Annabel highly enough. I have changed so many negative habit patterns which has had such a positive impact on everything I do." Coachee, Deparment Manager
"Thank you so much for your support over the last few months. It’s been perfectly timed to force me to think about me and my career aspirations and you have helped me with some excellent advice and guidance as to how best to go about getting my next big challenge! All the tips, links, and common sense guidance you’ve sent me will be invaluable." Coachee, Senior Manager
"Both workshops provided an environment and the first ever opportunity for the management team to talk openly and honestly about the way we interact and how effective we are as a management team. It needed an external facilitator to create this environment and is hopefully the first step to 'fixing' us as a team. The workshop made me understand how the teams feel and how we have a voice as a management team and we can make changes/decisions to benefit the centre. it opened our eyes to where we need to be as a team - we just need the focus and commitment to continuing with what we've started. We're in it for the long haul!!" Executive Leadership Team
"I cannot even begin to explain the impact Annabel has had on me in terms of increasing my confidence and self esteem. She has willingly given her knowledge, experience and expertise. She understood my style of learning and was able to easily go from mentoring to coach mode as required" Mentee, career development
"I just wanted to say thank you for all your help during 2016, you have been amazing and a real source and tower of strength and challenge which has helped me to refocus and to get a grasp of how I can tackle next steps." Mentee, Career Development
"I am being supervised for my coaching practice by Annabel. It's a fantastically enlightening experience as she teases out and brings to the forefront of my attention aspects of my coaching and coaching practice. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is able to draw on that to inspire me" Coaching Supervisee
"Annabel has been coaching me this year and I have found our sessions to be great at helping me to develop my skills. Annabel elegantly holds the space for me to explore my ideas and what is holding me back - and with her years of experiences, gives me the tools, information and resources I need to take my insights forward in a practical and meaningful way. Annabel makes coaching seem effortless! The coaching she offers is straight forward, dynamic and powerful and I would recommend her to anyone looking to grow their leadership and career."
