A bit about me

I’m passionate about supporting women in managing the opportunities, challenges and demands that come with leadership roles. I'm a qualified and experienced coach as well as being a leader in my own career, with well over 10 years’ experience in leading teams, coaching and facilitating from one of the Big 4 Professional Services firms.

Here's what some of my clients have said about my coaching:

"It is a real pleasure to be coached by Rachael. The coaching sessions are thought-provoking, the coaching is very practical and has had a positive impact on a number of aspects of my role. The coaching came into play in discussions I had with my team, peers and senior leaders. Rachael's knowledge and level of professionalism are outstanding and really help me make a difference." V

"Working with Rachael has really changed my professional life. The difference I have experienced is huge. I approached Rachael whilst in a real period of feeling stuck in a job I was dissatisfied with, and didn’t know what I wanted to do with my career. I now feel so much more clear on my career goals, values and priorities. I also feel a lot more confident in my strengths and abilities. I couldn’t recommend Rachael enough! " Lauren S.

"I found the sessions with Rachael very useful for talking through my work challenges, how I felt about my current role and what I wanted to do in the future... I felt that this really helped my confidence ...I would definitely recommend Rachael and have talked to others about my positive experience with her." Alice
