About me

I’m a highly experienced, qualified Business Coach and Personal and Professional Development Coach and have been running my practice in North London since 2004.  Sessions can be face to face or via phone, Skype, Zoom or FaceTime.

Before becoming a coach, I spent many years running a successful London based marketing and communications consultancy. My clients included well-known 'blue chip' corporates & companies as well as household name consumer brands. This valuable experience informs and helps me coach and mentor CEO's, MD's and executives working at all levels as well as entrepreneurs and professionals working in the creative industries.

I provide business and professional and personal development coaching to suit each individual client to help them identify and achieve important goals to build success and drive their careers and businesses forward.  At the same time I can help you gain more fulfilment from your professional and personal life. I can also help budding entrepreneurs generate ideas and create exciting plans for new business ventures as well as working with existing small and medium size companies to help find original ways to promote their business and build on their success.

No matter what the goal or issue, I believe you will benefit from talking to an experienced professional like me who will give you impartial, valuable and objective feedback, help clarify your thinking, and work with you to create the right action plan. Part of the process is to identify and overcome any obstacles that are getting in your way.  Working together, we'll explore and find the right strategies to achieve important goals and ambitions for your career and your business .

I believe my style of coaching will offer you the inspiration and support you need to make the changes that will take you forward to where you want to be in your life and your work.

I offer new clients an introductory session free of charge.  It's a great opportunity to explore how my coaching can help you and for you to feel confident that we have the right rapport to work well together.  I'm available Monday to Friday during the day and early evenings. I am also available some Saturdays.  Needless to say, anything you tell me is completely confidential.

I work with a wide variety of business people to help them make the most of their potential.  My clients include senior executives and managers and their teams, as well as entrepreneurs and business owners. I work with creative professionals and freelancers including writers, artists, architects and designers.  I can also help people who may be thinking about career change and are open to exploring a new direction.   I offer mentorship and guidance to all my clients  including students and trainees. I think you’ll find my coaching will give you some fresh ideas, greater focus and the clarity and increased confidence you may be looking for right now.

Mentoring is also a passion of mine and I have helped several organisations set up their own in-house mentoring programmes.

I can help you:

  • Develop ideas and marketing plans to launch a new venture or breathe new life into an existing business
  • Identify and achieve professional goals and make positive change
  • Increase your self-belief, confidence and motivation
  • Overcome any blocks and barriers that stand in your way
  • Explore and develop your potential
  • Learn new skills and how to be more flexible with your work/business in challenging times
  • Learn how to become more disciplined and productive when you find working from home a challenge!
  • Face the challenge and make the most from a career change
  • If you employ staff or freelancers - help you make the most of their potential and improve their skills set and performance
  • Manage your time better and achieve more every day
  • Create fulfilling Life Plans/Retirement Plans for you (and your partner)
  • Manage stress effectively and achieve a better work/life balance
  • Rediscover your passion for life; find new interests and challenges
  • Get more out of your personal life, your career, work and leisure time

My coaching sessions aim to bring clarity, focus, confidence and success – Coaching will help develop your qualities and skills and identify and achieve your ambitions and goals. I welcome the opportunity to help you change your life and career for the better and work with you to build a more successful and more rewarding future.

Just email me or give me a call to book your free introductory 'get to know' meeting online or by phone. You can visit my website for more information at

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained with The Coaching Academy and qualified as a Professional Coach with Distinction in 2004.  I continue to study all aspects of coaching and mentoring (and life in general!) to ensure I can constantly expand my knowledge and learning.

Over the past years, I have worked with a wide variety of personal and professional clients from many different business sectors.  I've helped them achieve a range of individual aims and ambitions.  During this time, I've been able to increase my experience through addressing a broad and varied range of issues, problems and goals .

Before becoming a coach, I spent many years in the corporate business environment, running a successful communications and marketing consultancy. Clients included blue chip corporates & companies , household name brands as well as iconic consumer products.

I volunteered as a Samaritan and was based at their Waltham Forest branch between 2008 and 2010 and this experience has helped me broaden my perspective and understanding.

I have authored an eBook about mentoring in the workplace  - Mentoring at Work - see details under Further Information Section below
