About me

"The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude"(Oprah Winfrey)

  • Hands up if you struggle with procrastination and getting sh*t done?
  • Hands up if you know what you need to do but aren't consistent?
  • Two hands up if anxiety, or confidence or limiting beliefs are holding you back from living the life you know you desire? 

Know that you are not alone.

This is often a theme with my clients, but this does not need to be you if you want something to be different!

I am an experienced and accredited Professional Certified Coach with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and NLP Practitioner and use these approaches to coach you to help you to:

  • Blast beliefs that have become barriers
  • Flip fears that are stopping you from moving forward

As a result of the work that I do, you will not only connect with your authentic self but really start living the life you have always wanted to live.

I coach, simply put, because I am passionate about it and what it can do, having experienced it personally and seen amazing changes with hundreds of clients over the last 10+ years.  I offer face-to-face coaching within the Walsall / Staffordshire areas, and telephone and Zoom coaching internationally.  We can contract for short term sessions (typically 6 sessions), but I can also offer one off sessions for specific issues e.g. job interview preparation, personality profiling.

Book today for a complimentary 'chemistry' session so we can refine your goals, and get you started on the journey to lasting change.

And if you know you would like to try a one-off coaching taster experience, feel free to book via the link (dates available until July 2024) -

'Chase' your dreams....walk and talk coaching session in Cannock Chase Forest.

The evidence is clear.  Being out in nature helps you to find alignment between your needs, your values, objectives and actions.  Being out in nature also helps you to relax.  And when you relax you get clear on what it is you really need.

I'm a firm believer in doing this for myself (which is why I spend so much of my time in the Chase) and I know this will help you follow your dreams too.

If you would like to enquire about these 60 minute coaching sessions in Cannock Chase or indeed another local area, then drop me a message.

Training, qualifications & experience

My journey as a Coach started with career coaching and personal development, utilising my 20 years of experience as an NHS Manager. Branching out from coaching public sector professionals led to me working with men and women across all sectors. Age, background, qualifications and experience are irrelevant in my sessions.

I do not need to know where you have come from, I just need to know where you want to get to.

I have been in your shoes, trying to climb the career ladder, trying to navigate parenting, losing self in the midst of the chaos and feeling unfulfilled. I know how it feels, and that enables me to truly work with you to get the best out of you.

I am an Associate Member with the European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC) and am fully insured.
