About us

I work with ambitious, professional men or women who suffer from stress, exhaustion or burn out from the pressure of having to consistently perform.

I can help you to safely transition into a more rewarding career or to gain more resilience in your chosen career by discovering and leveraging your natural talents and strengths, putting them to work doing the job that suits you best.

I can also help you to create your own profitable, thriving business, unlocking your entrepreneurial talents and helping you discover if this is the best route for you. 

I am a qualified Personal & Business Transformational Life Coach, NLP Practitioner and Gallup Certified Strengths Coach with significant experience as a business owner, trainer and coach.

Contact me if any of the following resonates with you?

  • You are at crossroads in your career
  • You are not fulfilled in your career
  • You think there is more you can give in your career and aren't reaching your full potential
  • You are thinking about starting your own business but fear the risk of losing financial security, status or worry in case it might not work
  • Your health and wellbeing is being compromised due to your career
  • You have a burning desire to achieve something bigger than you but can't quite put your finger on what that could be
  • You want to make changes in your career but not really sure where to start or which direction to take?

Contact me to find out how I can help you find the answers and solutions you are seeking:

My passion lies in helping professional men and women like you to unlock your talents and strengths and put them to work so you can reach your full potential.

Maybe it's time to move away from a career you have outgrown and move into the career that plays to your strengths.  Maybe it is also time to build the business you have always dreamed about. You have all the answers within you and I take pride in helping you to find these answers so you feel empowered to make the right decisions going forward.

Through working on your professional goals it has a positive impact on your personal life creating more balance in your life overall.

Through an initial exploratory meeting we can see if we are a good fit to work together.

Here are just some of the ways in which I can help:

  • Career change will look at ideas for the work that will inspire you
  • Develop yourself to exceed and reach your full potential in your current role
  • Career progression e.g. promotion, taking your career to the next level
  • Support in starting a new business - Small business coaching and mentoring
  • Motivation, goal setting, time management, staff coaching
  • Developing a more positive attitude towards ‘work’ and 'life'
  • Realising your inner potential and making better choices
  • Create more focus and direction
  • Managing and avoiding stress
  • Creating a more positive outlook on life by changing negative thoughts and behaviour
  • Become more self-aware, have more self-belief, increasing your confidence
  • Having the space and time to think and discuss your thoughts and ideas in a non judgmental environment
  • Being happy and content in your career

Once your goals are understood we will work together to implement them

You will receive important 'life skills' which you can put to use immediately in your professional and personal life, including:

  • Discovering your Core values (what makes you you!) and ensuring your goals are in line with these values
  • Determine what is your most important value
  • Look at all aspects of your life to measure satisfaction levels
  • Goal setting for future aspirations
  • Overcoming self-limiting beliefs
  • Creating more focus
  • Eliminating overwhelm and procrastination

My services are usually in demand for leadership development, team development and personal development based around career and business coaching.

I can meet face to face or via zoom calls individually or small groups

I have a successful coaching company based in Tyne & Wear and work with individuals, small  business owners and large organisations with an established clientele online and offline and work with people all over the world!

Women or men that I have worked with often approach me because they:

  • Have high demanding jobs
  • Work long hours
  • Feel like there is more to life but feel stuck in an unfulfilled career
  • Want more freedom, control and autonomy to make decisions
  • Want to create something for themselves
  • Experience high levels of stress
  • Looking to progress in their current roles
  • Looking for more balance in their personal and professional life
  • Thinking about what to do next in their career
  • Seeking a change of direction and the potential to start their own business
  • Eager to identify and use their natural strengths and talents and to use these in their career or business, allowing their true success to shine through

I can also help with:

  • Time management
  • Stress management
  • Confidence building
  • Positive Attitude
  • Work/life balance
  • Next career planning
  • Relationships
  • Anxiety

It is extremely important for me to update my skills and continuous professional development through courses, seminars, etc so that I can continue to serve my clients and provide great value.

People respond differently and my results driven approach is mainly due to my flexible intuitive approach to meet the exact individual needs of each client I work with.

Some people contact me and ask how much I charge which isn't usually the best approach. I prefer to get to know people first, and offer a complimentary discovery session so we know if we could be a good fit to work together and have more clarity about your options.

From this point, I will of course discuss the different options as each case is different.  I can say you can expect to pay as little as £80 depending on your needs and I won't know what that is until we talk first.

If you're serious about getting the results you want and ready to invest in yourself by discovering what's possible for you, please get in touch.
