About me

I coach those who feel stuck, those who wonder if they must continue to feel unfulfilled and those who are not sure if they can make changes on their own.

If you…

  • feel frustrated with your current situation but are not sure how to change it
  • have a vision or hope for the future but don’t know where to begin to achieve it
  • often describe yourself as stressed, overwhelmed or un-motivated
  • know that you are limiting your life by procrastinating
  • find it difficult to make the choices that are right for you

Imagine working with someone whose sole focus is you and the choices you can make to improve your life. Someone who will enable you to identify possibilities that you haven’t yet thought of. Someone who will remain positive and keep you strong and focussed through the changes you know you need to make.

As your life coach I will enable you to find your passion, make positive choices and experience real change.

Training, qualifications & experience

I work with coaching clients to find creative solutions that make a lasting positive difference. I empathise with my clients and explore their strengths, limiting beliefs and passions. I take great pride in providing practical advice and support that enables my clients to identify what is holding them back and the steps they can take right now to improve their current situation. My clients often comment that they didn’t realise how much control they had over their own happiness and success.

With sixteen years experience in education, the public sector, strategic planning and project management my coaching approach is logical and methodical. I use my experience as a qualified teacher, consultant and company director to enable my clients to identify and achieve their goals.

I am a certificated practitioner life coach and completed my training with the London Pure Coaching Academy. I have a specific interest, and qualifications, in the field of stress management and performance coaching.

WHY DO PEOPLE CHOOSE ME AS THEIR COACH?

I am practical - I focus on real life steps that you can take right from our first session together.

I ask illuminating questions - I know that when people feel stuck and haven't been able to make changes on their own they often need thought provoking questions that will enable them to uncover the limiting beliefs and fears that have been holding them back.

I know you are busy - I understand that clients want to to see results but are also often juggling other demands and responsibilities. I will hold you accountable for the changes that you have committed to make but will ensure that we break down into manageable steps the actions that you need to take. We will also build in some strategies to ensure that you don't feel overwhelmed.

I value your investment - I understand that coaching is an important investment of time and money. I truly want to see you succeed and will ensure our sessions are tailored to your needs.

Further information

To help you to decide if you are ready to work with a life coach see below for my answers to the questions most frequently asked by new clients.

HOW CAN A LIFE COACH HELP ME?

If you are feeling stuck, and not sure what steps to take to change your current situation, life coaching can help you by:

  • getting to the core of the challenges you are experiencing
  • helping you to get clarity about the choices that are open to you
  • providing accountability and follow through so that you can make sustained positive change

Life coaching is for anyone who knows that they want to make changes and are ready to commit to taking steps to improve their lives.

WILL LIFE COACHING WORK FOR ME?

I know how powerful and transformative coaching can be. As a coach I have a unique relationship with my clients. Unlike your friends, colleagues and family members I have no fixed views about what you are able to achieve. The time we spend together is dedicated to you. Time to explore your thoughts, hopes, challenges, limiting beliefs and goals. I am here to support you every step of the way. However, and this is key, I can't do the work for you. You will need to come to coaching ready to make some changes and commit to the coaching process. I will ensure that you have the motivation, tools and confidence to make things happen and see results.

WHAT IS YOUR COACHING APPROACH?

Every coaching relationship is different. When we first start working together I will ensure that I understand how you like to work. We will discuss what you want to achieve, the challenges you are facing and anything you have already tried. I will help you to move from your big picture, through your options and towards choices and action. We will always ensure that our coaching time together is focusing on the areas that are most important to you.

WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I WANT?

Coming to coaching not knowing exactly what you want to change or achieve yet is fine. In fact this is common. A general sense of feeling stuck and not being able to move forward are often reasons that clients come to work with me. Knowing that you want to make changes, and are ready to take action and invest in yourself, is all you need to begin coaching.

IS LIFE COACHING THE SAME AS PERSONAL COUNSELLING OR THERAPY?

No, a life coach is trained to help people to see clearly where they are today and then to find ways to help them to move forwards towards their goals. They provide their clients with tools and strategies and work with them to understand the present and to plan for the future.

A counsellor is someone who creates a safe and supportive space to help people to discuss problems in their lives both in the present and the past. They explore situations that are causing emotional distress or are impairing someone’s ability to function well.

WHERE DO YOU COACH CLIENTS FACE TO FACE?

I coach clients face to face at my offices in London Bridge and south London. At times I am able to offer some flexibility regarding alternative coaching locations within London. For face to face coaching outside of London special arrangements, including travel and time expenses, are sometimes made. For clients who are unable to meet for face to face coaching I offer flexible telephone coaching. All coaching options can be discussed during your free curiosity call.

CAN I PURCHASE TOP UP COACHING SESSIONS?

Yes. Once you have worked with me through one of my coaching packages you will have the opportunity to purchase any additional top up coaching sessions that you may need. These may be used to support you to embed the changes that you have already made or to help you in making further positive changes.

HOW DO I PAY FOR COACHING SESSIONS?

I will invoice you for packages or sessions in advance and will ask that you make payments by bank transfer.
