MAC - Business, Life and Career Coaching

About me

I am a highly qualified, experienced and empathetic business, life and career coach, working online, by phone & face to face with individuals, teams, organisations and business leaders who want to make changes in various areas of their professional and personal lives. For ten years I played key role and headed up the leadership team of a national wellbeing charity, driving change through telephone counselling, coaching, face to face development programmes and delivering workshops on leadership, staff engagement and managing stress, with an emphasis on people development based on coaching philosophy & principles.

My current clients include teachers, health professionals and aspiring and established leaders in the chartiy, private and public organisations, as well as international students at The Judge Business School at Cambridge University.

My approach is simple. I help you clarify a change of direction, work out what is needed in both personal and professional terms when you are facing difficult chocies or big decisions, or you are dealing with challenging situations in your life. I will guide and help you to determine the steps you need to take to achieve your goals and to resolve the issues you face. My clients often say the coaching they have received from me has been transformative.

Being coached offers you a unique opportunity to be heard, understood and supported. I will help you develop confidence and enhance your ability to think clearly, plan more effectively and take action. Crucially you begin to feel happier and an active agent in the changes you want to manifest in your life.  our work together will be strictly confidential.
