About me

Coaching or mentoring with me is underpinned with a business background, 14 years as a psychotherapeutic-counsellor and 5 years as a Professional Coach. I am currently a director of a service company and a financial/investment trustee. Strong on life experience, I am a well-resourced catalyst for your thoughts, goals and actions.

Specialising in:

  • self-employed ventures - are you going it alone?
  • start-ups - focusing on launching the "idea" not getting bogged down in the admin
  • marketing communications & strategy - unsure what to do and how to do it? - or even why you need to do it?
  • business succession - gaining clarity and making best choices

My aim is to help you get some longevity into your decisions and actions - so that you're not going round in circles or losing focus

My personal style is straightforward and objective. I am known for my fairness and being able to see both the woods and the trees.
