About me

I'm Jacqui, a professionally qualified coach. My practice is called 'Here to There', and my job is to help my clients get from where they are now to where they want to be, faster than going it alone. And to work with my clients in their 'here and now', focusing on helping them feel at their most energised, confident and productive.

Career Coaching
Have you have arrived at a career cross roads? Are you feeling 'stuck' in your current role, wanting to move on but not clear where or how?

Energy, Focus and Concentration
We all have moments when our head is swimming with so many things to do and decisions to make that it can feel overwhelming. I help my clients to harness their thoughts and establish moments of calm and clarity to re-find their focus and energy.

Confidence and Motivation
Do you wake every morning with a clear sense of direction and self-belief? Or are there things in your life and work that you’d like to change, but you’re not sure how to go about it or don’t feel up to the challenge?

Work/Life Balance

I work with individuals who are looking to manage their careers (rather than have their careers control them).

Business Coaching
Are you and your team running at peak performance, or is there unrealised potential that could be better deployed to meet the ever-changing demands of your business? I work with business owners and managers to develop their own leadership and management skills and the skills of their team to best meet the needs of the business.

Struggling to vision and plan the next stage in your business journey? I work with my clients to define, plan and track for their unique definition of business success.

Personal Finance Coaching
Are your personal finances affecting too many aspects of your life, from personal life to career? I work with my clients to help them understand the beliefs they have about money that can in turn drive the behaviours creating financial shortage - then work with them to set realistic financial plans. NOTE: this is not financial advice or accountancy.

Training, qualifications & experience

My career has taught me a great deal about the pressures and challenges that are faced by businesses and the people who strive to make them successful. As a consequence, I can bring insight and empathy – as well as realism and rigour – to the coaching relationship.

With 20+ years experience in the advertising industry, I have worked with clients in sectors ranging from technology to financial services to higher education, and with start-up businesses through to established global brands.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

I am a qualified DISC Personality Profile administrator. As one of the mostly highly validated tools of it's kind, it can helps us unlock the 'people puzzles' in our lives. DISC equips us to better understand both our own preferred behaviour and communications styles and those around us in our personal and professional lives.

Complimentary Consultation
My fees are ‘programme’ based, which means they depend on how many sessions we agree would be appropriate, and also how long we think each session should be. As a rule of thumb, a typical programme will be four to ten sessions. I maintain a minimum programme of 4 sessions because in my experience any less than this and it is unlikely you will truly reap the rewards.

Our initial call will be a consultation, it is complimentary and will last around half an hour. During this time we can discuss in confidence which areas you want to be coached around and how we would work together.

My coaching sessions with Jacqui have supported my development and achievement tremendously and I feel in a much better place having worked with her.”

KH, HR Director, Public Sector

“I have found the sessions really useful as I’ve never really taken the time or had the techniques to help me move forward before. The sessions taught me to think about what I want in a different way. It’s helped break it down into manageable chunks too.”
