About me

I am a professionally qualified Life Coach and NLP Practitioner, specialising in personal and business change management. I am skilled at listening and asking helpful and thought-provoking questions, to support your goal of achieving a more fulfilling and happier life. I can help you to see yourself more clearly, identify any limiting beliefs, and learn how to make different choices. I will empower you to create the life that you really want and to notice any barriers, habits, or self-sabotaging behaviours, and then working together to build a plan to help you achieve your goals. 

Armed with more self-awareness, greater self-belief, and new strategies, you will be in a much better position to start making the positive changes that make a real difference to the quality of your personal and work life.

It's not a great feeling to feel lost or 'stuck' in a state that stops you from moving forward with your life. I can help you gain new clarity and purpose on what's really holding you back and support you to bring about a difference; that makes a difference.

I can also provide you with a DISC Personality Profiling Analysis, that helps you to better understand yourself and other people around you, by identifying your public self, private self, and perceived self. This powerful insight into your personality, helps you to become a better communicator, prevent or resolve conflicts, appreciate differences in others and gain credibility by positively influencing those around you.

Coaching can help you to make rewarding decisions, tackle problems, and become 'unstuck', feeling healthier, happier, and more satisfied.

I help individual clients facing challenges in their life in the areas of:

  • Career change or transition
  • Personal development
  • Education & Well-being
  • Work-life balance
  • Stress and time management
  • Interpersonal communication
  • Relationships
  • Self-awareness and self-acceptance

Executive Coaching

With a long career history as a corporate leader, I know how lonely it can be at times to be expected to have all the answers. It's not always easy to be able to talk through the issues and pressures of the job with a sympathetic and capable person. To have someone you can really talk to about your hopes, dreams, doubts, and fears. An Executive Coach fulfills this very important role and it feels great to have someone 'in your corner'.

Business Coaching

Business coaching helps corporate clients by developing more effective and inspirational leadership skills, management of complex relationships and identifying areas that may be holding back performance, and developing more inspiring and motivated leaders. Areas I concentrate on are:

  • Better team managers
  • More effective communications
  • Confident strategic planners
  • Effective time managers
  • Competent people managers
  • Motivational leaders

My meetings with clients are either face-to-face, via Skype or by telephone.
