About me

My Background

My career journey began in the Middle East fulfilling a life-long dream.  Working for the British Council in Kuwait was the pivotal turning point in my own career where I found a passion for helping and supporting people as they moved toward their life goals. 

On returning to the UK I qualified as a career advisor and spent 20 years in education supporting people with their own career journey and was where I developed a keen interest in coaching. This led me to qualifying as a coach with the ILM.

 My Coaching Approach

Do you want to make changes in your life, work or career but lack the confidence to make them? 

People I coach often feel this way before working with me and that’s why I do what I do. 

I’m passionate about helping you unlock your potential and raise your self belief to achieve purpose and fulfilment; to help you feel more confident, and enable you to work positively to achieve an end goal so you can prosper and achieve the outcomes in your life.

The areas I cover are:

Career Coaching for when: 

  • You’re feeling unfulfilled at work
  • You lack motivation and want change but don’t know where to start
  • You lack the confidence to go for a career change or promotion
  • You suffer from impostor syndrome and feel stuck through lack of self confidence in your career

Life Coaching for when:

  • You’re not reaching your full potential
  • You suffer from impostor syndrome and feel stuck through lack of self confidence in your life
  • You want to overcome the worries and doubts that are holding you back in life

Management and Executive Coaching for when: 

  • You want to be more connected to your staff
  • You want to develop your management and leadership skills
  • You want to develop positive working relationships with your team
  • You want to gain skills in conflict management

My coaching can be both in person or online where we will work together to develop a coaching programme with an emphasis on reaching your full potential through a non-judgmental and impartial approach

I offer a free in-person or online discovery session where we can discuss your needs and how we can work together - contact me to find out more.
