I work with you where you are right now in your life, providing coaching and career development to bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be. Together, we can map out the journey to get you on the right track.
In 2005 I qualified with The Coaching Academy, Europe’s largest provider of coach training, and in the same year completed a practitioner course in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). I have studied Psychotherapy and Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Theory. I am a trained counsellor working in a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy model, which I believe gives a deeper awareness of the coaching issues my clients bring to me.
I am also a qualified bereavement counsellor and supervisor working with Cruse Bereavement Counselling. In addition, I have worked as an addiction counsellor and I am an accredited counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I came into coaching after 20 years in the publishing industry as a Graphic Designer and Art Editor, a background that has given me deep insight into the creative mind and personality. In my managerial role also I saw the way careers developed within a large cooperation and how people could be brought on and helped to grow within their work.
The experience of retraining and establishing my own business gave me first-hand experience of how someone can move on, take control and change their life.

Over the years I have worked with clients who were experiencing career confusion have been able to move forward in their careers, whether seeking promotion, striking out on their own with a start-up business, or even falling back in love with their job again.
I have coached professional and semi-professional sportsmen and sportswomen helping them to address the sports/work/life balance and to transition to a new career after the end of the sporting one.
Also, I have guided parents who had been caring for children were able to return to the workforce and find employment once again.
Working with business owners and small firms facing financial difficulties have regained a solid financial footing as a result of the work we did together in exploring strategies and motivations to move them to success.
