About me

Grounded in relational coaching, my coaching practice developed into an existential style involving the exploration of a client’s values, goals, and beliefs to identify the existential true nature of the client, and thereby understand their unique path to genuine fulfilment.

This has developed into Mindfulness Informed Coaching which leans on the transformative energy of mindful presence to generate deeper understanding and insight.

Working with me can bring the clarity you need to find your true purpose; it can allow you to understand the person that deep down you need to be, and it can set you on a path to genuine fulfilment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been a coach since 2011, having trained at the University of Hertfordshire and further at Ashridge Business School on the Coaching for Organisational Consultants residential programme.

I now deliver training for new coaches, and also for leaders needing coaching techniques, I facilitate AC workshops online and also as Hertfordshire regional coordinator for the Association for Coaching.

Further information

I provide services in coaching and life coaching, operating from a relational, existential perspective. My coaching style is known as Mindfulness Informed Coaching, which follows the principles of coaching while always operating from a mindful perspective. 

In Mindfulness Informed Coaching the coach brings a calm presence to the coaching alliance, which enriches the conversation and generates deeper understanding and insight. Such a style also leans on the ancient wisdoms of mindfulness by promoting a conversation of curiosity, openness, acceptance, and kindness.
