About me

I have 20 years plus experience of leadership and management in educational settings, the last 10 years as a Headteacher or CEO of a group of schools employing almost 300 staff.

Much of my time was spent in 1:1 meetings with a range of staff. On taking early retirement from this role I retrained in NLP and Executive Coaching and have now been  self employed in this area for over 12 months.

Coaching for me is owned by the client and is about me helping you to a  greater clarity around what exactly it is you want,  and supporting you to achieve that/those outcomes. I am happy to work with people on any area they wish, and my main interests, experience and strengths, are as follows;

Executive Coaching/Business Coaching for any leadership, management, career or work related issues

Sports Coaching for any sport related or sporting ambition (England Athletics qualified)

Life Coaching in regard to;

  • personal development
  • stress
  • relationships
  • work life balance
  • life goals
  • self esteem
  • low mood/non-clinical depression

if you have a specific area of need, please ask
