Executive Coach & Psychodynamic Counsellor

About me

I am a qualified executive coach and counsellor who has worked extensively with individuals and organisations to design tailored initiatives that deliver real results. My goal is to work with you to tap into what drives you, support you to identify your aspirations and then figure out what you need to do (or stop doing) to achieve them. My work is informed by my extensive commercial experience, my breadth of training, and my ongoing training as a psychodynamic counsellor. I am driven by finding ways to support and invigorate people as they work through challenging times, and helping them identify what they really want from life, work and relationships.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

I offer maternity and paternity coaching.

I have worked extensively in the corporate maternity and paternity coaching space. Working with women I ensure they feel equipped to tackle the challenges of taking a year away from their careers. We work together to establish a framework within which you can leave your role confidently, knowing you have had the conversations you need to have before leaving to have your baby, and then ensuring you return to work with clear boundaries and an idea of how you want to manage your work, and crucially career, within the context of your new family role.

We typically meet 3 - 4 times, about two months before maternity leave, once about two months before your return date, and once or twice up to six months after your return.

The challenges of managing changing family dynamics are not specific to women, and paternity coaching can offer men a valuable space to explore their experiences of fatherhood and the changes this brings to their personal and professional lives and identities. The number of sessions is typically agreed during the first meeting.


Additional information

I offer coaching programmes of typically 6 - 10 sessions at £90/hour for private clients. The length of the programme will be determined by your needs, and decided with you.
