About me

A Meyler Campbell and EMCC accredited executive coach. My background is as a creative in media. As Editor-in-chief of three global brands including Elle UK and Marie Claire UK, I led a team of dynamic creatives as well as directing marketing and sales strategies. As a figurehead of these brands, my role involved media appearances on TV and radio (from Question Time to Women’s Hour) as well as being a speaker at industry conferences. I believe in the power of coaching as a transformative experience that will define leadership in an individual and reinvigorate an organisation.I specialise in coaching women transitioning into leadership roles. I encourage self-empowerment through nurturing and empathetic coaching. My aim is to maximise my client’s potential. My strength is to put people at ease while challenging habitual thinking with robust questioning.

Further information

When I first work with a client, we meet remotely for a chemistry meeting to discover if we are likely to work well together. The decision is just as important for the client as the coach. When we next meet, I'll help you decide on your short and longer-term goals of coaching. We'll agree on the number of sessions and schedule our dates. Then we start our coaching partnership in earnest. We are equal partners at all times. My aim is to listen deeply to you and offer you a safe space to explore your challenges, anxieties and ambitions. I shall often repeat back what you have said to check I have understood correctly. As a former magazine Editor, I'll use storytelling as a means of unblocking your thoughts. I'll prod with questions that vary from gentle to robust so that your thinking expands. If you feel stuck, I'll change tack and help redirect your thinking. Coaching can be tiring but should also feel liberating, inspirational and empowering. Progress is regularly reviewed by both of us. Solutions that are reached are yours, not mine, and you are therefore more likely to act upon them. At the end, a coachee should feel that positive changes have occurred and clarity for the future has been attained.
