About me

I am a qualified NLP Practitioner and Performance Life Coach, and member of the National Council of Psychotherapists, providing coaching to individuals and groups, Small Businesses, Motorsport, the Care sector and other areas.

My career spans over 30 years running my own businesses in Executive Recruitment and Career Consultancy, Hospitality and Tourism, with earlier positions in Advertising, Marketing Management and Business Administration.

I work with groups or one to one, without judgement and to your agenda, facilitating clients to make resourceful changes that enables them to manage their lives or businesses more effectively. The process challenges the client and holds them accountable. It encourages them to be resourceful and inspires a determination to succeed.

Specialities: Anxiety & Wellbeing - Bereavement – Career – Communication – Confidence – Health & Fitness - Phobias - Personal Development - Self Esteem - Weight Management – Work / Life Balance -

Training, qualifications & experience

2015, awarded Level 5 Diploma in Performance Coaching with NLP accepted as a member of the National Council of Psychotherapists.
October 2015 achieved the Certificate for MBAC: Training for Trainers Course in teaching Mindfulness which I now combine with Life Coaching and NLP. February 2017 awarded NLP Practitioner, Guild of Coaching & NLP, National Council of Psychotherapists.

Working with groups or individuals, clients have overcome confidence and self esteem issues, learnt to communicate more effectively, changed negative behaviours, found new careers, started new businesses, achieved work / life balance and general wellbeing.

I start the process by creating a safe and supportive environment where clients can open-up and be listened to without judgement. We build rapport, working to their agenda using selected coaching techniques, NLP tools and activities. This process enables clients to explore what's important and clarify their desired outcome. Negative issues are dealt with, clearing the way for workable plans to be created to achieve a positive and sustainable outcome.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.
