Life and Career Coach

About me

I've spent over twenty years building a successful and rewarding career in business. I was listed in Insider Business Magazine's Inaugural Women of Influence in 2015. I've won awards for the work I've done supporting, coaching and developing employees from all walks of life, including a European Call Centre Award. I've travelled the world, seizing opportunities to work in places such as America, India and Australia. I was recognised as an excellent mentor and coach, yet I always felt I had more to give. After several life changing events, I decided in a leap of faith to change my career and stepped off the corporate ladder to study at university for three years and become a qualified coach and counsellor, specialising in career and life coaching and person centred counselling. During my studies, I was also a mental health champion in a corporate setting, offering support and a listening ear to senior managers and directors as well as becoming a Cruise grief volunteer. I am a member of the Association of coaching, the European Mentoring and Coaching Council and a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

A & B Coaching and Counselling is the business I've created to help others achieve success in their life - no matter what that success might look like. It might be working towards a goal or working through a difficult time in your life - if you require coaching or counselling from a qualified professional with an impressive track record, look no further.
