I started the coaching experience very cautiously with a little scepticism but cannot believe the difference it has made to my life. I am challenging myself, putting myself forward for opportunities, rather than blending in the background and finally moving forwards.
Thank you for visiting my website.
I am passionate about personal and professional development and thrive on helping my clients to get the best out of themselves and their teams.
I have a particular interest in the training and ongoing development of leaders, managers and coaches and work in partnership with my clients to facilitate development in a way that realises individual and collaborative potential as well as achieving both personal and business goals.
I offer a comprehensive portfolio of services which enables me to tailor-make development initiatives to suit most individual or organisational needs including:
- Enhancing leadership capacity
- Expanding coaching capability
- Maximising individual and collective performance
- Promoting accountability and responsibility
- Enabling change
- Engaging staff
- Managing the transition from doing to leading
- Connecting with others more effectively
- Unlocking individual and collective potential
- Promoting collaborative working
- Integrating theoretical learning with real-life issues
- Making career decisions
- Embracing neurodiversity
I also have strong links to a network of enthusiastic, experienced and highly professional coaches, supervisors and facilitators, so if I’m not the right person for you I can offer alternative suggestions.
All photographs used on this site have been taken by myself in places I find beautiful, awe-inspiring and inspirational.
I hope you enjoy browsing the site and that you’ll want to contact me to find out more.
