As a productivity coach and study skills consultant, I help busy adults and teens to improve time management and organising skills. The aim is not only to help you to get things done, especially if you're working or studying at home, but also to develop skills that boost confidence and motivation.
Are you overwhelmed by too much to do? Struggling with procrastination or perfectionism? Or stressed by exams because you're not sure HOW to get organised and revise? During the current covoid-19 crisis, there's more pressure than ever to be productive but challenges can feel insurmountable.
I'll coach you to focus on what really matters, to plan, prioritise and overcome procrastination. I can also combine life coaching with virtual organising to help you clear clutter in your home and in your head. And if you're preparing for exams, I'll share strategies to help you to get organised, plan (and stick to) a study schedule, boost memory and manage stress.
My approach is positive, purposeful and practical with an emphasis on empowering you to make decisions and create lasting changes.
I also devise and lead innovative training for personal and professional development. Do get in touch to find out how I can contribute to your future events.
