Performance Life Coach, CV and Career Coach, MAC

About me

I am a Performance Life Coach based in Doncaster with my own coaching room and offer face to face, group and online coaching.  My clients say that I am straight talking and that I have a habit of asking them 'killer' questions.   

My coaching style will suit you if you're feeling really stuck, if you definitely know you want change but you're not sure what that looks like and if you respond well to being held accountable, completing tasks and doing some real work on yourself.

Building your confidence and self-belief and helping you to find your courage to take action are where my coaching will benefit you.  You are the expert of your own life; coaching reaffirms this and promotes new thinking and fresh perspectives in a highly supportive, non-judgmental environment.

I am also a director of Empowered in Nature CIC, an eco therapy workshop company which offers an alternative path to wellbeing, offering group workshops in an outdoor setting.  In addition, I am an associate of Keen Consultancies - an Executive Search Consultancy business.

Coaching is a huge part of my life and I am passionate about its power and effectiveness.  If you're interested in finding out if coaching will benefit you, then I always recommend a 'discovery' call first.  You can ask about the process and share your desired outcomes so we can decide next steps.   Just email me at with your contact details and I'll arrange a convenient time to call.

Additional information

I charge £125 for a block of three sessions and £240 for six.  Post- package ‘Check-in’ sessions are charged at £50 for 90 mins.  You will have access to your personal, on-line coaching workbook which keeps a confidential record for both you and me of what is agreed at each session, specific goals and objectives and overall outcomes.  I am contactable between sessions, believing that the process is continuous and therefore requires some intervention from time to time.
