About me

I help people create better working lives. I offer a calm, insightful space to think straight and tackle overwhelm, indecision and procrastination by getting clear about what really matters. I help people translate clear thinking into better action, by understanding how to use strengths and time to be energised and productive. This helps people find a better balance across their lives, bringing resilience, enjoyment and breathing space back into the picture.

Most of my clients are professionals, leaders, entrepreneurs or freelancers who've reached a crunch point. They may be taking a big career decision, or have decided they want to stop feeling overwhelmed, undervalued, stuck or stale. I particularly enjoy working with people in public service, not-for-profits, or social enterprises. I offer the thinking space they crave - but so rarely find - to figure out their next step and how to take it with courage and commitment.

My coaching is based on a firm belief that better actions emerge from better thinking. I principally work with the Thinking Environment, adding other coaching tools and models as needed to fit each person and their strengths and challenges. I'm happy to coach outdoors if walking and talking is the best way forward. Where it might extend and enrich clients' own thinking, I draw on my experiences of senior leadership, freelancing, introversion, juggling work and family life, volunteering and distance running.

If you are keen to make changes in your life to find a calmer, clearer way forward, I would love to hear from you. If you can think better, you can be better, for good.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a coach with Meyler Campbell in 2014 and have worked as a coach, trainer and facilitator continuously since then. I'm a certified Thinking Environment™ practitioner and am happiest when helping clients to think well and find the motivation to take action.

I'm certified to use the Lumina Spark psychometric tool and the CAPP Strengths Profile, both of which help clients understand how to work in step with their energy, values and strengths.

As well as running my Thinking Alliance business, I work as an Associate with Dods Training (a leading public sector training organisation) and I am also Vice-Chair of Governors at my local FE College Group.

Previously, I had a 20+year career as a civil servant, including over a decade as a Senior Civil Servant, gaining experience of leading teams and complex strategic issues whilst also working part time and raising a family.
