• What do you want?

    "Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure" - Confucious

  • Who I am.

    Professional executive coach. Experienced in providing collaborative, individualised coaching on a one to one basis. This is NOT technical guidance, career counselling or training, which is why it transfers to all professions and works for all individuals.

    Goal identification.

    Being unsure of what exactly we want can be frustrating. There are multiple ways of identifying the goal which is the starting point for any successful endeavour. My experience helps to ensure the right method is used for each individual. Imagine the motivation, the drive, that will instill.


    Barrier clearance.

    When you know the goal but seem unable to attain it. I can help identify the barrier to clear the way. As a Neuro-Linguistic Programming practitioner I have a toolbox of techniques which can elicit great and in most cases - immediate - results.

  • Relationship building.

    Standing up in a room full of people who already believe they know all the facts and so do not need to hear anything you say. Having the ability to change their minds. To buy in completely not only with what you are saying but more importantly, with you.

    I know pressure.

    Actually being on the oppositions territory surrounded by people who believe you are in their way and actually stopping them achieving their goals. Maintaining the confidence and pose to effectively undertake the task you set out to in the face of active conflict to achieve your own goal and doing it in such a way that working relationships and respect is built and maintained.

    I do this. So can you.


    Also, time pressure. When sleeping and eating almost seem like a luxury. Identifying a way of working smarter, and knowing it is all towards your dream goal? That's not a luxury, that's a plan to success.


    I understand confidentiality - I have been a solicitor for over 12 years. Trust is paramount for any working relationship. I will not disclose anything about any previous clients to you and you can be assured that how you achieved your results will remain confidential.

  • What I do.

    I work with individuals....

    But you are a company?


    That means lots of individuals. We all can give examples where one person came up with that amazing idea, or where one person destroyed an entire project...


    Tell me what you need. Face to face at your office, remote consultations, team dynamics assessment. Short or long term support. I can create package options to suit.

    An individual?


    Personal development, stress management, leadership skills, more effective communication, increased confidence, improved working relationships...


    Every pro has a coach (yes that includes me) and now you can too.

    Maybe it's not really a work based problem?


    As much as we would all rather not admit that how people feel outside of their work life can have an impact on the focus, standard and performance of what is produced at work, it can and does.

    Overall well-being lacking?


    I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist (with BANT and CNHC) enabling application of my MSc in Personalised Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy Practice Diploma to assist in achieving overall optimum nutrition empowering you to be the best version of you inside and out.

  • The Research.

    A sample of current evidence.

    Organisational and leadership benefits...

    Mcgovern, et al., 2001. Maximizing the impact of executive coaching : behavioral change, organizational outcomes and return on investment. The Manchester Review, 6(1), pp.1–9. 100 executives from 56 organisations partook in 6-12 months coaching programs. Business improvements identified as both tangible (productivity, quality, organisational strength and customer service) and intangible (improved relationships with direct reports, peers and stakeholders, as well as improved teamwork, increased job satisfaction and reduced conflict). Reporting on return on investment, improvements were seen to employee retention, productivity, increased responsiveness of staff, improved relationships leading to better performance, and 75% (participants and stakeholders) indicated that the value of coaching was considerably or far greater than the money and time invested.

    Passarelli., 2015. Vision-based coaching: Optimizing resources for leader development. Frontiers in Psychology, 6(MAR), pp.1–14. This was a review of the evidence of executive coaching to date concluding that so far it showed increased leader self-efficacy, increased satisfaction and commitment, fosters stronger relationships and personal development, and facilitates work family integration. "Activation of a positive psychophysiological state that optimizes affective, cognitive, and neurobiological functioning for development. These resources fuel ongoing developmental efforts that endure the test of time, benefiting both the leaders being coached and their organizations."

    Theeboom, Beersma, and van Vianen., 2014. Does coaching work? A meta-analysis on the effects of coaching on individual level outcomes in an organizational context. Journal of Positive Psychology, [online] 9(1), pp.1–18. This was a meta-analysis of 18 other studies. They reported that the results indicate that coaching interventions have significant positive effects on all outcome categories: performance and skills , well-being, coping, work attitudes, and goal-directed self-regulation.

    Goal setting and life quality benefits...

    Clark, et al., 2014. The effectiveness of wellness coaching for improving quality of life. Mayo Clinic Proceedings, [online] 89(11), pp.1537–1544. 100 employees received at least 9 sessions of coaching in a 12 week period. Significant improvement reported to overall mental, physical and emotional wellbeing, quality of life, perceived stress and mental stress management.

    Clark, et al., 2016. Improvements in Health Behaviors, Eating Self-Efficacy, and Goal-Setting Skills Following Participation in Wellness Coaching. American Journal of Health Promotion, 30(6), pp.458–464. Self reported results by the 100 participants after 12 weeks of coaching once a week, were health behaviours such as increased levels of physical activity and better nutritional habits, alongside improved confidence in both and in stress management leading to decreased stress levels and overall improvement in well-being, quality of live and overall health.

    Grant., 2003. The impact of life coaching on goal attainment, metacognition and mental health. Social Behavior and Personality, 31(3), pp.253–264. 20 participants each undertook 10 sessions of 50 minutes coaching a week. Thereafter reported significantly reduced levels of depression, anxiety and stress, alongside enhanced quality of life.
