About me

What do I do?

I offer coaching to support individuals and couples on their step parent and blended family journeys. 

I am a qualified coach, emotional intelligence practitioner and experienced change professional of over 10 years alongside being a step parent. I have a variety of skills, accreditations and life experience, enabling me to offer a valuable and personable coaching service.

Why might you need step parent or blended family coaching?

  • As separated parents you might be seeking to establish a contact schedule that works respectively for the both of you.
  • As a step parent you might be finding it difficult to understand your role and how you fit in to the family unit.
  • As a step parent you might be struggling with the resentment attached to new sacrifices and new responsibilities that you are not equipped for.
  • As a step parent you might be battling with a range of feelings because your efforts are seemingly undervalued, unnoticed or unappreciated. 
  • As a step parent you might be experiencing stark realisations and a larger-than-anticipated expectations gap, which you need to work through. 
  • As a partner you might be feeling ill-equipped to support the step parent in their new role and in helping them to overcome any anxieties that they face. 
  • As a partner you might prioritise the feelings of the step parent or the children over your own, meaning that your own emotional needs fall by the wayside. 
  • As a couple you might be finding communication with each other challenging and are unable to resolve small or bigger conflicts in, for example, parental styles. 
  • As a blended family you might need a helping hand with relationship building, creating an inclusive environment and balancing or establishing a new family dynamic. 

What you can expect from me:

  • A safe and empathetic space to explore emotive and challenging topics, which are personal to you.
  • Time spent understanding the problem as an alternative to admiring it.
  • Support in embracing and pursuing change.
  • Access to a rich toolkit of models, frameworks and approaches to support you and your partnership.
  • A bespoke plan to realise your goals together with accountability for your actions in achieving those goals.
  • Respectful and constructive challenge where appropriate in order to arrive at alternative perspectives and improve resilience.
  • Genuine investment in you; my work ethos is to offer a valuable and value for money personal development journey.

Training, qualifications & experience

I use a range of methodologies, frameworks, tools and techniques - some of which are well known, others are bespoke creations based on years of extensive experience. I am not wedded to specific models and base the session(s) on your particular need(s).

My toolkit includes (but is not limited to):

  • Traditional coaching models and methods (including GROW)
  • Emotional Intelligence profiling and support in establishing a development plan to address areas for improvement
  • Bespoke listening, communication and resilience training
  • NLP foundation skills
  • Bespoke facilitation and negotiation techniques
  • Gallup strength finder questionnaire and skills insights
