What is coaching and why do you need it?

People turn to a coach to help them make a change that they have struggled to do by themselves, be it at work, or in their personal lives.  Some of us know what we want, but we don’t always know how to achieve it. Others feel there must be more to life, but don’t know where to start to go about changing it to the life they want.

We are all unique individuals and by understanding ourselves better, we can make better choices to achieve our goals and ambitions. I can help you to understand your purpose, your values and your true self.

Often we can lack self confidence, even if we are successful.  This may be the confidence to give presentations or to boldly work at a higher level following promotion.  I can help you to understand yourself better, especially working with your strengths and preferences.  This will help you to stretch out of your comfort zone and to grow in self confidence.

You can have a coaching session with me in any way to suit you: indoors or outdoors, face to face, by telephone or on-line, e.g. via Skype.

Personal/Life Coaching.

I will help you to identify your goals.  What you choose to work on is your decision, but areas could include meeting personal goals, support with self-directed learning, improving self awareness, building self confidence, improving resilience and working on your personal growth.

Executive Coaching

Executive Coaching is specifically focused at you if you work at a senior management level.  Working at a senior level can feel somehwat isolated, so working with a coach gives you support and encouragement as you aim to lead your team in the best way possible. You can explore a wide range of business related and personal development topics in order to help you to improve your personal and professional performance.

Corporate/Business Coaching

You will be supported in the context of your work, either as an individual or as part of a team and/or organization.  I will help you to achieve improved business performance and operational effectiveness.

Resilience Coaching

If you are looking for support with building your resilience, I am expert in helping you to build your emotional resilience and to understand how you can manage your stress levels.

Outdoor Team Coaching

Outdoor team coaching is available and has great results in building team trust and relationships as well as building resilience - contact me if you'd like to know more.



The relationship between us is very important and is based on trust, honesty and respect.  As a coach I offer you structured conversation, non-judgemental support and confidentiality.  What is talked about in session will not be discussed with anybody else.

I am not a counsellor:  counselling is about making sense of the past so that the present is easier to deal with. Coaching is about looking forward and making positive change. I will give you appropriate signposting to professional support if I believe this would be more helpful to you.
