About me

Hi, I'm Margaret, a professional Executive Coach, Counsellor and Supervisor.

My approach to coaching is to build a strong working alliance within which I can listen carefully to your needs and then work alongside you to facilitate you achieving the outcomes which are right for you. As part of this process, we can explore the factors that might hold you back like: confidence, anxiety and low self-esteem. As a qualified Psychotherapist, I can work at a deeper, more psychological level than many coaches  and help deepen your self-awareness.

There are many periods in our lives when we can feel overwhelmed or concerned about the future and coaching can be extremely useful at these times. Equally, in a world which is changing fast, it is common to find change unsettling. If you are affected by, say, redundancy; thinking of making a job move; returning to work; or have recently been promoted; then I provide a 'thinking space' in coaching for you to examine your feelings and make plans for the future which are right for you. I look at how you can raise your commitment and motivation levels to maximise your success.

I work with lots of different types for people from the most senior to those starting out in their working lives. With all of my clients, I bring a strong coaching skill-set which has been honed over the past 20 years. Although, I work with the 'inner-world', I am rooted in the external world also, and regularly work as an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development, of which I am a Fellow. My continuing professional development is an important part of my professionalism and I am interested is understanding the developments within coaching, psychotherapy and the wider world to inform my work.

For more information or discuss how I can help, please contact me by telephone.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

Specialist area:

I have coached many women over the years who do not have good self-esteem or who doubt their abilities, with excellent results. I am interested in the 'Imposter Syndrome' and how this manifests, in particular in high-achieving women, and how best to challenge thoughts which are self-limiting.

Further information

I am particularly interested in how being in nature helps with mental well-being and creates a 'cognitive quiet'.  I work as a coaching tutor for the University of Cambridge (ICE- Madingley) and run two courses: 1. How to grow a coaching nature 2. Developing your coaching relationships - an exploration of the dynamics at play.

Over the years I have received excellent feedback in my coaching/counselling work:

'Margaret is very understanding and obviously has a great deal of knowledge in her field.  She listens and also asks pertinent questions that seem to take me to areas that I need to go, and perhaps wouldn't without this guidance.' Kirsty

'Margaret managed the coaching/counselling relationship with extreme sensitivity and professionalism from the outset and to the end.  At no point did I feel our sessions were being controlled or contrived and I was able to offload and lead our discussions in new directions as I needed.' Peter

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
