My passion for supporting others and nurturing people’s talents has offered me a wealth of experience. My approach to coaching is flexible, pragmatic and caring.
Alongside coaching, I have co-run a small business for many years. My experience in the workplace has developed strong social-emotional skills which I apply in my coaching. I completely understand many of the issues that affect small businesses and coach CEO's and many executives. I offer an initial strategic session to start recognising current issues, together we can work to overcome these challenges.
I have raised four children and also understand the pressures that young people face, whilst being mindful of the parent perspective I have worked for some years with local schools, running classes on confidence and self-belief, enabling students and teachers to identify obstacles and learn how they can be overcome.

What can you expect from your first Coaching session?
After the initial telephone conversation, I will send you a list of thought provoking questions for you to start clarifying the specific area you would like to start your coaching journey to keep on track to get the results you want. We can revisit this during the course of your sessions ensuring you get the most you can out of these. So much of the progress is made between the sessions!

Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with the International Coaching Federation. I am a Master Practitioner in NLP and an accredited Strengthscope consultant.
Having set up and run a small company for many years has allowed me to identify many of the challenges that face SMEs. My coaching experience lends itself to start ups and small businesses. Understanding the uncertainty and added stress the Covid 19 situation is causing to many companies and appreciating that having someone to talk issues through with and support is so important to many.
Also with succession in view, preparing for retirement in the most constructive and supportive way for each individual and for the company, whatever the situation is for the economic climate.
I work one on one with children, teenagers and young adults. I understand the pressures young people face having worked for some years with local schools, running classes on confidence and self-belief, enabling students and teachers to identify obstacles and learn how they can be overcome.
In particularly since the COVID-19 crisis I have been supporting more and more Sixth Form College and University students to provide them with support during this difficult and uncertain time. For the University students I can offer 30 minute phone appointments or longer if preferred, to allow them to have an easy link to emotional support. Generally I will touch base with them every few weeks.
I have now also coached over 400 people in skills benefiting their self-confidence and recognising their strengths enabling them to be aware and overcome their limiting beliefs. I have coached many school leavers and graduates supporting them in their next important steps.
Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
I am coaching many people suffering from stress at the moment. To give them time to appreciate the fast and changing world right now. Supporting those who are experiencing stress to come up with strategies and coping techniques to help themselves learn to reduce anxierty and manage better whilst also learning to recognise when it arises. Among the techniques I suggest, include learning relaxation skills and journalising trigger events.
Coaching school leavers and graduates
I have now coached many school leavers and graduates. I coached in a school for three years to small groups, so really appreciate their concerns and also what motivates them. I produced a workbook for the schools which I still use on my one to one clients which is fun to use and is also a great record for them to see the progress that is made so quickly.
University students and graduates often need time and space to really consider their options, to be given that support is truly invaluable. Time management and organisational skills can be a constructive areas to concentrate on as they progress through different stages of education and employment.
I can also give guidance on interview skills so that they have the necessary confidence when it really matters.
I offer a complimentary initial phone consultation to begin to get to know each other and to discover if I am the right coach for you, as the chemistry between us is very important for successful outcomes.
My fees are reasonable and competitive as I charge £85 per session. I am happy to do pro bono work for worthy causes.
We can work face to face, Skype, zoom or telephone whichever works best for you. I am happy to coach in my own home or meet you at a mutually convenient place in and around north Hampshire and in London.
