I offer personal & professional coaching to support you to cope, thrive and succeed.
There is such value in being able to talk openly and candidly, free of judgement with the aim of creating positive change. Coaching allows you the freedom to work things out for yourself and unlock yourself from previous behaviours and patterns of thinking.
My clients come to discuss all kinds of different issues, some in their private lives and some in their work lives - often both. Together we will work out what's important and work through the necessary steps to make sure you gain the most form your life.

Areas of coaching I deal with
From £120.00 to £210.00
Free initial telephone or online session
I also offer some pro bono spaces, however there is a waiting list and I tend to give the spaces to adolescents/young adults. Please feel free to get in touch about spaces and pricing.
Initially we will have a conversation to see if we are a good fit, can we work together effectively? This works in two directions, are you comfortable talking to me and vice versa. For me, it is vital that you feel you will be able to talk to me in an open, honest and unconditional manner. The session is free and usually lasts approximately 30 minutes. If we are good to go, we pop a date in the diary.
Following sessions will be focussed on a goal, what is it you wish to achieve? By the end of each session you will have created some action points for you to undertake between sessions, this ensures that each session creates momentum towards the bigger change you want to create in your life.
I work with a range of clients from adolescents through to C-Suite executives, individuals seeking some clarity through to global business leaders managing monumental workloads seeking some space and time. I approach each individual on a case by case basis and together create a bespoke plan which aims to create the change so badly need.
"I have spent some time with coaches in various roles. However, working with Rachel really opened up a new chapter as she is a great coach and listener. Spending time with her to focus on myself helped me in my leadership role and I experienced a great journey in re-establishing my own principles with her. Rachel supported me in changing some of my routines and sharpened my view on what I need. " Florian Pauthner, Senior Vice President Discovery+
"Rachel found the perfect balance between challenging me and giving me the space I needed to remove the noise that was clouding my mind. I now regularly revisit some of the conversations we had to ensure I continue to stay on track re. personal and professional goals." Nimesh Kataria, Vice President Finance at Eurosport
"Coaching sessions with Rachel are like having a chat with your good friend over a cup of coffee. Rachel is an expert at the art of coaching through conversation, in a very natural and uplifting way, which has you opening up and talking honestly about your current challenge, whether it be personal or professional. And though it may feel like a coffee chat, Rachel has a knack for cutting to the heart of matters that often sit in our blindspots, helping us to join the dots and make sense of the situation at hand. The conversation ends up being very constructive and action-oriented, but Rachel’s style is so unique and effective, it makes you excited for the next session!" Kellie Pritchard-Peschek
"I’m super happy with the results. The coaching work was thought provoking and revealing. I learnt a lot which I apply and reflect on almost daily. The team also loved working with you and looked forward to their sessions and I feel they only wanted to do more. It’s been money very well spent." Ben Scott
"Rachel helped me focus on why I want to get things done – instead of endlessly ruminating on what could possibly go wrong and whether there might a better way of doing things. She's also made me see more clearly in which situations some of my personality traits are strengths and when they might be more of a weakness. What's more, she's just a really nice person who genuinely cares about her clients!” Alain Guttinger
"I'm really grateful to Rachel for taking the time to coach our teenager who was struggling with a range of issues. Over 6 months we have seen a shift in her thinking and it has been such a positive experience for us all as a family." Anon
