About me

I offer leadership and development coaching for personal and professional success.

I coach on all sorts of issues to do with life and work: I have been coaching in private practice for ten years and have well into the thousands of coaching hours.

I also work with people on all kinds of life coaching and deeper coach/counselling issues.

I am continually bowled over by the wonderful variety of life journeys and choices my clients take and the resourcefulness, sparkle, humour and integrity they show.

Having coached for many years now I know that each person's journey and situation is wholly unique - and that there are also patterns and similarities in the journeys and choices that different people make at different times in their lives and careers.

My typical client? I'm not sure there is one! I have worked with people of all ages from primary school age to late eighties, men and women: who are leaders and directors, entrepreneurs, engineers, emergency services, business people, administrators, lawyers, students, academics, doctors, teachers and stay-at-home parents.

The coach-coachee relationship needs to be one where you feel comfortable so the best thing is to pick up the phone or book a first coaching session - if after half an hour you feel it's not going to work then I will reimburse you the cost of the session- so there's no risk!

Note that while I work with people on all kinds of coaching and deeper coach/counselling issues - I am a primarily a coach and so my rule of thumb is that clients do have to be functioning and operational on a day to day level, otherwise other support pathways may be more appropriate in the first instance. I am happy to discuss whether coaching would be right for you at this time.


I coach in person across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, London, and Cardiff / South Wales, and via phone, facetime or skype just about anywhere!

I use Skype and face-time a lot for coaching, because it avoids the extra travel time and expense for clients: Clients can also chop and change between face to face and skype/phone to fit their diary -  Everyone is different and I offer flexible coaching to recognize that.

I help you understand your strengths, your aims, your values, your impact on others, your blind spots, and your patterns; and how you can use this awareness and information positively within your everyday working and private life.

Clients sign up for a number of sessions per month- just like a gym membership. Everyone is different -so my aim is to provide a range of options so that you can choose what will best suit you and your issue.

The booking system is online and automatic - and you pay online using STRIPE - so its very simple to use- you can book, pay and even cancel or reschedule online at the click of a button.


If you are unsure whether coaching is right for you just now, or just want to talk over anything I am happy to speak with you.

Is it a quick fix? Most clients see me intensely for between 3 and 6 months, depending on their issue, availability and the frequency of coaching that suits their life and work. Many then come back and have coaching again as and when they feel they need to as their situation changes and develops over the next few years.
