Confidence and Communications (public speaking) Coach

About me

• Do you want to step up to the next level at work or in your own business?
• Would you like to feel more at ease in public speaking situations?
• Are there some areas in which you’d like more confidence?

I help women in business get noticed, get promoted, and drive their agenda to make a difference.

I understand that, like me, you might seem super-confident but lack self-belief in certain areas of your work or life.

For instance, what might it mean to the growth of your business if you were more visible, clearer on your message, confident to speak in any situation, and comfortable showing up as the real you?

My clients enjoy increased visibility and enhanced personal performance, resulting in sustainable business growth. They tell me that I’m positive, non-judgmental, challenging when I need to be — and huge fun to work with!

What does it involve?
I have tools and techniques (including EFT-Tapping) to help you manage your inner gremlins, get out of your own way and start making progress to achieve what you want. Coaching can be a fast track way to feeling confident, resilient and ready to 'show up big'!

If you want more confidence, better career progression, an improved work-life balance, or simply to be the best version of you, contact me so we can arrange a 'no obligation, let's get acquainted' call.

Additional information

My fees start from £90/hour. Signing up to a package is more cost-effective.

Since I started coaching in 2008 I've racked up hundreds of hours of experience, so I'm not the cheapest coach. I believe if you're willing to invest in yourself and the change you want to affect, you'll get good results. Do visit my website for testimonials from people who've been delighted with their return on investment.

Before you invest anything we go through an evaluation process that helps us both understand whether coaching with me is the right way forward. Sometimes I turn people away at this point — I'm very selective with who I work with, so there has to be a rapport (I can refer you to someone else) and there has to be a true fit with coaching (sometimes training / mentoring / counselling are more appropriate).

When I work

I am very flexible regarding when I coach. I can offer early morning appointments as well as during the day, both in-person and virtually (via zoom / Skype).
