About me

Are you looking for support to manage stress or anxiety?  Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed and out of control?  Perhaps you are looking to make a change in your life but don't know where to start?  Maybe you are looking to progress in your job or change your career completely?  Are you looking for motivation or more balance?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then coaching can help you.  I can help you build your mental strength and resilience, even in times of crisis; using psychological, performance, problem solving or cognitive behavioural techniques.

I am a fully qualified and insured personal & career coach coach, working with  individual clients on a private basis and within organisations for over 16 years.

Personal/Life Coaching

Your sessions will be friendly, relaxed and completely confidential, giving you the space to reflect; free to explore and reach a greater understanding of your self, make room for personal development and ultimately work on reaching your goals.

Whether you are looking to remove personal barriers to change, looking to manage stress or anxiety, increase self-esteem, motivation or improve confidence; coaching can really help you and give you the tools to reach your goals.

Career Coaching

Changing careers, going for promotion or interviewing for a new position has become increasingly competitive and challenging.  I offer career coaching to help support you, wherever you are in your career.  This can be anything from helping you with specific interview techniques by practicing in a safe space, or applying for roles.  I can help you find your inner confidence, assess your skills and support you.


Depending on your reasons for using a coach, I tailor our sessions to be lead by you and your needs.  Whatever your goals, I use a range of coaching tools, methods and techniques which can really help change the way you think, remove blocks and help you to positively move forward.

I believe that the key to a successful coaching relationship, along with the experience of your coach, is trust and rapport.

When and where?

When and where we meet can be decided together.

I offer online sessions or alternatively I have a comfortable and relaxing coaching room where we can meet.

For clients in the Essex area, I also offer 'walk and talk' therapy sessions in green space - if appropriate for the type of work you want to do.

Thank you again and I hope I can help.
