About me

make a difference; feel great

I am a qualified, experienced coach. Coaching is a proven, highly effective approach to personal development.

I use coaching to get to the heart of things, helping you to uncover what is holding you back or getting in the way of what you want to achieve.

I work mainly with ambitious professionals looking to get more from their life and career.

Amongst many other issues, I have supported my clients with

  • Career coaching
  • Confidence
  • Personal Development
  • Self-esteem and imposter syndrome
  • Relationships at work with managers and colleagues

What I love more than anything is experiencing with my clients those moments of revelation which lead to breakthrough change.

I offer my support for you to make a difference and feel great

Who are you?
You may identify with some of the following:

  • You have achieved a lot and you are proud of where you have got to
  • You have a demanding job and a busy life which is rewarding but can be stressful at times
  • You are ambitious and want to get more out of your life
  • You are honest with yourself. You take responsibility for your own growth
  • You sometimes lack confidence and can be hard on yourself
  • You want to develop and grow but you can’t always see a clear path; or you may see obstacles in your way
  • You sometimes lack time and support to focus just on you

My promise to you

When we decide to work together,

o   My only focus is you.

o   I will commit absolutely to supporting you to get to where you want to be.

o   I will ask the questions no one else ever asks you

o   I will listen to you like no one else ever listens to you

o   I will enable you to talk about the issues that are most important to you

o   I will create a safe space where you can explore, practice and try out new thoughts and ideas

o   You have your own wisdom; I help you find it


Amongst comments received from my clients after working with me are that they

  • feel more confident 
  • have greater self-belief
  • worry less and sleep better
  • have found some clarity and a way to deal with difficult issues
  • have better relationships at work
  • have a plan for the future.
  • have been promoted or found a more rewarding job

Coaching with me 

o   We meet together in person or on-line  - whatever works best

o   We’ll identify and agree what you want to achieve from the coaching and what goals you have.

o   You will mainly talk and I will mainly listen.

o   I will ask questions and encourage you to explore things more deeply

o   There may be some silence: this is often when the best thinking happens

o   We may take a winding road but we will regularly check-in to ensure that we are still heading in the right direction

o   In my experience, the goals you have at the start will probably change as we go along; important insights will emerge as we explore more

What to do next

1.    Email me to schedule a call

2.    We meet on zoom to talk through the issues you have and what you are looking to achieve. 

3.    There is no charge for this meeting and no obligation to take things any further. You will get value from this, whatever you decide to do next.

4.    If we decide that coaching with me would help you get to where you want to be, we decide on the coaching package that is best for you.

5.    We arrange coaching meetings either on zoom or at my office in Leamington Spa.

Following this process ensures that we both approach coaching with understanding and commitment which will lead to successful results.

I now have my own business using coaching to support organisations and a wide range of people from all walks of life

Your Investment

If we decide to work together you have a choice of three options:

Bronze: It may be that you have a specific issue that we can deal with together relatively quickly. We arrange one hour coaching sessions as and when you need them and you pay £80 per session.

Silver: If you would like to take more time to explore the issues that are important to you, you can invest in a coaching package. You pay for six sessions to be arranged in advance at regular intervals. You pay a discounted rate of £450 for the six sessions.

Gold: If you would like to explore your issues more deeply with my comprehensive support you can invest in a fully inclusive six-month structured coaching programme.

For this you will receive on average two hours coaching per month. This is flexible to suit you; for instance, it could be in two short or one long session, or a mixture of the two. There is flexibility to arrange the number and timing of sessions around your other commitments. There is also opportunity to extend the six months to allow for holidays or other commitments

During the six months I will also provide support by phone or email between sessions.

Your investment for the Gold programme is £800.
