I offer coaching for executives, business owners & senior managers seeking fulfillment in their personal & professional lives. I’m a leadership and management coach, facilitator, supervisor, professional speaker and I aim to be catalyst for others to flourish.
With almost three decades of experience in understanding what makes people and teams tick, I work with pioneering leaders to create exciting, vibrant and nurturing environments where people and results thrive together. I share insights, practices and tools from my work as a qualified executive coach, therapist, and supervisor so that you and others can achieve their personal and professional visions.
I have 20,000 coaching hours experience & hundreds of success stories in coaching and will offer you time to think, space for inspiration and together we can deliver results. I have a deep and wide understanding of corporate life and the challenges that you're likely to be facing on a daily basis, the good, the bad and the ugly! I bring this understanding and experience to help you to become much more satisfied and productive in your working and personal lives.
The sessions are thought provoking and creative processes through which you can maximize your potential and achieve your goals. All my work is underpinned by the Thinking Environment, which believes that the quality of everything that people do depends on the thinking they do first, so I create conditions in which you can think brilliantly. I support this with more traditional coaching techniques and tools when doing so will help you to make progress. I am also a BWRT® Practitioner, helping my clients to make permanent changes in how they respond to fears, triggers and anxiety-provoking situations like presentations, confrontations and difficult conversations.
If you want to make significant shifts in your life, I believe I can help!
I see private clients and supervise coaches at private rooms in Aylesbury and see organisationally funded clients anywhere in the South East / London either at their place of work or at hired meeting rooms.
Here's what some of my clients say:
“I met Linda at a pivotal time in my career, she helped see the world from a different place and I can confidently say that her targeted yet adaptable approach helped me through some of the toughest professional and personal decisions I have faced. I have continued to work with her to help develop my teams and try to continue to use some of the wisdom she has imparted. I have known her for many years now, and still each time I interact with her, I learn something new." Liz, VP of Enterprise Data Platforms, Expedia
“Linda is a highly skilled and intuitive coach and facilitator who has a wonderful ability to bring a group together, develop a powerful sense of team and galvanise great decision making and action. I could not recommend her highly enough.” Ewan, CEO at Gofal
"Linda is inspiring. Every time I have a coaching session I come away buzzing with ideas even when I have started the session "knowing" that there are no solutions. Linda is encouraging, motivating, supportive and fun. Her Time to Think courses have transformed the way I think and how I help others to think. I can thoroughly recommend her". Anneke, Engineering Director, Moogsoft
“I've worked with Linda at three companies; time spent with her gives you a chance to think through an approach to problems, and you leave having developed some concrete ideas as to what to change. She’s had a great impact both on my own and my team’s career development." Nigel, MD of TravelSupermarket.com
