About me

"Yesterday I was clever so I wanted to change the world.  Today I am wise so I am changing myself"

This can be a challenging thought, but once this starts to mean something we can go forward in a different way. I work with individuals keen to develop their potential.

The coaching process gives clarity around blocks and a new perspective on performance, brings out motivation and adds value to work and life.

Whether you would like to take your business life or your personal life forward, I offer an initial pre coaching call to give you the opportunity to talk through your ideas and intentions and see if you feel comfortable and confident with the coaching experience that I offer.

Coaching for work, self employed and small businesses - I carefully listen and enable you to establish your starting point. We tease out any conflicts, stumbling blocks and issues that may be interfering with your next step forward.  We identify realistic goals and work out plans and strategies to realise your outcomes.  With increasing self awareness, your perspectives, goals and strategies become very much your own satisfying achievement.

I also have special interest in personal coaching and coaching to enhance wellbeing. The coaching is an excellent place to start to take stock of life as it is now and how to take things forward in the most creative and life enhancing way for your wellbeing.

Training, qualifications & experience

My Coaching has been life coaching and in the sector of small businesses and self employed people wanting to get clarity to move forward.  The Coaching gives a valuable and much needed space. To underpin this I have been working with clients to enhance wellbeing since 1989  in  Employee Assistance Programmes, NHS, charitable organisations, Social Services, private practice and alongside many people in the helping professions.  This has given me a huge variety of experiences and knowledge around work life balance and the importance of emotional wellbeing.

I believe that if we are able to attend to our thinking and emotions we have the resilience to keep on track for our chosen path.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
