About me

Trained and qualified at both The Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge and Meyler Campbell - International coaching and leadership training specialists, I am trained in mental health first aid, trauma, safeguarding and have many years experience of life, career and workplace coaching and significant leadership and human resources expertise gained from my work as a CEO, MD and non-executive director.

I have worked extensively in the education sector, in the field of mental health and wellbeing, employment, skills, economic regeneration, arts, youth and criminal justice and I coach a diverse portfolio of clients, including headteachers, CEO's, senior management teams,  business owners, boards, aspiring leaders, experienced and newly qualified teachers, lecturers, students, graduates and people who are unemployed or facing redundancy. 

Warm and empathetic in style, I offer one-to-one and group coaching sessions, workshops and role play.  I specialise in personal development, career and business coaching, building self- confidence, self-esteem.  conflict resolution, creating healthier relationships, providing a safe and confidential space to pinpoint the causes of workplace and family stress, anxiety, the impact and effect of trauma in our lives and on those dealing with complex safeguarding issues and issues relating to ADHD, to develop and implement creative solutions. My approach enables those I work with to feel heard and understood, to optimise their potential, arrive at clear thinking, define their goals and produce effective organisational strategies and personal action plans.
