If I am looking for a coach I want some evidence that they have the credentials, the experience and a code of ethics backed up by a professional body and most of all that they tell me something that signifies I can work with them. I have these things and will work with you with integrity, honesty, and quiet determination to help you find what you want.
As a qualified and experienced coach I offer life coaching to people who are considering making changes in their lives. I enjoy engaging with people and I am curious to explore with people how they have got to a place, where they want to get to and how they want to get there.
I have accreditation as a Strengthscope® partner and practitioner. Strengthscope® is the world's most extensive on line strengths profiling and assessment tool which measures work related strengths to improve performance. I provide individual, team and leadership profiles and accompanying coaching (see fees below).
My strengths are in working collaboratively and creatively to achieve my own goal and I do the same when working to develop others. I bring energy and humour to my interactions with people, and I like to work with your strengths to help you reach your potential. My approach is backed up by well researched models. I draw on my probation training, my study of Neuro Linguistic Programming, several years training in Transactional Analysis and my own coaching training with Peter Hill of Coaching for More which led to me being recognised for a national award. I like to show those I work with 'my working out' and see coaching as a joint enterprise whether to help you make small changes, a significant transition or a major transformation in your life.
