MSc (OccPsych) Certified Business Psychologist

About me

I have been in coaching and training for over 20 years. My background is in HR, recruitment, training, people management, business and entrepreneurship. Besides a masters degree in occupational psychology and certifying as an NLP Master Practitioner, NLP Coach and mBIT Coach, I also trained in various therapeutic modalities.

Business Coaching –

If you’re like most of my clients, you have been in business for a while and you’re ready to go to the next level. You are thinking about growing or you already have a team.

My clients have many different types of businesses, from coaching and therapy practitioners to technology, from lettings to hospitality and service industry to creative businesses and social enterprise. They have one thing in common, they are in business with head and heart. They are great at what they do in their business.

As your coach, I help you to work on your business, your leadership and your own personal development from the inside out. Because, your business can only grow as far as you do and self-sabotage is not where you want to be.

Leadership and Executive Coaching -

You may be a business owner or entrepreneur who is ready to grow your team of people or you have a small team, but you’re not feeling comfortable with the leadership position. Or

You may be an executive or team manager taking the next step in your career or you have been in leadership for some time, but feel like you have hit a ceiling.

Based on where you are now and initial assessment, we can work together to increase your capacity to lead, engage and empower. To explore your own journey and identity as a leader. To gain insight to help you navigate interpersonal dynamics in your team and beyond.

What if you could trust yourself in the decisions you make and be courageous so that you can respond (instead of reacting) to the ever-changing needs in your business?

What if you could feel fully confident in your leadership from the inside out without losing yourself and stop feeling like a fraud?

What if you could lead in a way that feels life-giving, empowering and aligned with who you are?

Thrive after Burnout Coaching –

When you have experienced burnout, one thing is for sure – you never want to do that again. The truth is though that many people go through it more than once, until they really get it and make the changes that are at the root of burnout.

The Thrive after Burnout Coaching program is designed to help you identify and resolve the triggers, get to the root cause so that you can re-align, re-connect, evolve and future-proof yourself so that you never have to go through burnout again. We will also explore different aspects of your work, life and what really matters to you so that you can be the leader in your life and work.

Let’s talk about what that looks like for you to thrive.

If you would like to talk to see whether we are a good fit, you can schedule a conversation with me. Contact me directly to set up a good time to connect: or call 0121 4033032.

Additional information

How I work –

The first step is to schedule a consultation. We will discuss what you need, want to achieve and what is in your way. Getting to know each other gives us the opportunity to see whether working together is the way forward.

To make the most of our time together, I'll send you a questionnaire before our consultation.

Most of my clients have a coaching session every other week as part of a program specifically tailored for them. That gives them the opportunity to process and do the work they need to do.

Between sessions, my clients have access to the client portal where they find resources they need and they can contact me for quick questions. At times further support and consultancy is needed which can be discussed (for example interviewing candidates, profiling or organisational network analysis).

Fees are dependent on the coaching program.

When I work

Monday - Friday. Saturday on request

Online coaching:

Online coaching sessions save you (and me) travel time to and from locations, clients say it often allows them to be even more focused in the session.

Online coaching sessions are through Zoom, a video conferencing application. Please make sure you have access to a good internet connection, a microphone and webcam. Unlike Skype, you won’t need to have an account and the call quality is also better. You’ll receive a link to my online meeting room, which you need to click at the time of the meeting. Please ask if you’re not sure about how this works.

Face-to-face coaching:

I offer face-to-face coaching sessions in various locations in the West Midlands which is where I’m based. I can also offer coaching intensives (half day, day or multiple days) in different locations.

Facilitation and training:

Please email me so that we can discuss what is possible. Facilitation and/or training could include Appreciative Enquiry sessions, Emotional Intelligence workshops, facilitating change, team and/or leadership development

Personality profiling:

Personality and leadership profiling is also available as a separate service. Profiling can be used for development as well as recruitment. Depending on what you need, a coaching program usually includes profiling as a starting point within your journey.

For team development, workshops can be facilitated. Please contact me for further information.
