About Barbara

Are you a Professional Person under Pressure? Have you just about had enough and you want things to be different now? Are you really trying to make a difference, but there's so much to think about and do all at once? Are you juggling home, family, work, and you've got lost in everyone else's needs? Have you got big changes coming up, such as redundancy, relocation, other personal changes? And you can’t quite see how to make the next step?  

Maybe things are okay, but you have this feeling that it could all be so much better?

My Training and Qualifications

Here's a selection from my extensive qualifications that are most relevant to you as my client - 

  • NLP Coach and Practitioner
  • Level 3 ILM qualification in Coaching in the Workplace
  • NVQ Level 4 Management
  • University of Newcastle upon Tyne - BA (Hons) English Language and Literature (2:1), with Latin, Greek & Linguistic Studies
  • State Registered Nurse (not currently practising but associate member of RCN) 

My Coaching and Work Experience

I've got about 200 hours of coaching now, both face to face and via Skype/online. I'm comfortable with both. Some of this was during my long public service career in a large English local authority, where I specialised in the management of homes for older people and in the training and assessment of the staff. I spent four years with the National Health Service and maintain my professional membership of the Royal College of Nursing. Currently I am doing some work in supporting apprenticeship delivery and removing barriers to employability  alongside developing my own coaching business.

    I really appreciated the time that you gave to go through the coaching process. One of the things that I needed was assistance going through the decision process, and the space that the sessions gave me was invaluable. You spoke about all aspects of the process including emotions and blocks…your step by step approach enabled me to look at it more objectively.

    The help and advice I have received will benefit me greatly in my studies and everyday duties....Not only did we discuss the things that I wanted to talk about, you were able to highlight other issues which I didn’t know about that were also beneficial.

    I have a clearer focus about what I want and a roadmap of how to get there. I have more confidence in my ability to make choices and determine my own destiny. I have learned the practical tools that I can apply to a variety of work and non-work situations.
