About me

Hi, I'm an Essex based friendly and approachable Coach supporting people to stay positive, build resilience, develop confidence and live a balanced fulfilled life.

Coming with 20 years of experience in education I am confident to say that I know people, and I know how to get to get the best out you. I also have an interest in mental health and well-being so have a good understanding of the challenges people are facing in the current climate.

I do not offer therapy, I offer solution focused coaching to help you get out your own way and find where you want to get to. 

What do you mean? Getting in my own way?

Getting in your own way often manifests itself in mindset challenges, a lack of motivation, low confidence and a difficulty working through problems. I can help you to find perspective and achieve more personally, commercially and professionally.  

Are you tired of just surviving and want some thing more? I can help.

Do you set goals but fail to see them through?  I can help.

Do you feel unfulfilled in life or in your career?  I can help.

Are you feeling burnt out or overwhelmed?  I can help.

My Coaching Style

You can talk to me about anything. I have a warm approach, helping my clients to establish what is realistic and possible. I am friendly and compassionate, with a good sense of humour, encouraging an honest and reflective approach to make progress with my clients.

Think of me as an impartial critical friend, asking questions designed to provoke reflection and challenge your thinking.

I can meet you in your place of business, in your home or somewhere neutral such as a coffee shop.

Text me or phone me to introduce yourself and we'll go from there. I offer a free consultation to begin with, either on the phone or video call.
