About us

Hello. I am a Leadership and Transformation Coach. I love the work I do enabling working women reconnect with who they truly are. When this happens they then reach high performance at work and lead simpler lives, all with less stress and more space on their minds.

If you are working for yourself, the founder of your own business or a senior women in corporate life and would like to find out;

  • How to overcome what’s holding you back at work and in life.
  • How to overcome fears and failure.
  • How to change direction or start again.
  • How to manage balance between work and home life.
  • How to deal with too much thinking. 

My coaching approach is both practical and profound. I help you see what you can’t see for yourself by pointing you to an understanding of how the human mind works (The Inside Out understanding) that results in opening up possibilities and unlocking your potential.

I always start by having a ‘rapport call’ or if local to me a face-to-face meeting to see if we would like to work together and for me to learn more about you. I suggest a coaching programme to meet your individual needs which can be a combination of any of the following formats and over a period of time that ties in well with your situation;

  • Face to face
  • Virtual
  • A telephone call

I am a wife and mother of three young boys, and live in Somerset where my husband and I are renovating an old Rectory and Coach House.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 17 years of coaching and management consulting experience designing leadership development programmes and coaching leaders through organizational change.

I have studied and applied a range of approaches to Leadership and change such as Heifitz’s Adaptive Leadership, Tavistock’s Psychodynamic approach as well different coaching approaches, such as NLP and Gestalt. I gained a Coaching Diploma in 2005 at the institute of Human Development. I have also studied a Masters in Management Learning and Leadership at Lancaster University where I did a Dissertation on the challenges that women face transitioning from work to become an mother and then returning to work.

I believe in continuing to learn and deepen my understanding of human nature and do this this by reading a lot, listening to podcast and I am currently on a Coaches programme run by Jamie Smart.


I love to work with women for a minimum of 3 months. I really enjoy working over a 6-12 mth period as this allows us to work at a deeper level and build a great working relationship.

Virtual sessions for a 3 month programme is between £960 and £1440 depending if you wanted 2 or 3 60-90 minute sessions a month.

A popular programme is to work over 3-6 months and start off with a half day f2f intensive of two 90 min coaching sessions. This is followed by a virtual 90 min session twice a month. This programme costs £1300 for 3 months or £2,260 for 6 months.

Further information

What is hugely important in my work is knowing that we can work together. This is why I spend our first conversation really getting to know you and visa versa. If we decide we want to work together then it is important to design the right coaching programme for you and your needs.
