Coaching & training for businesses and organisations


For business, individuals and organisations.

Coaching provides the opportunity to work out what’s needed to ensure you have a clear vision of what you, your people and your business need to thrive.

Professional coaching for you or your team transforms behaviours and accelerates change. Coaching brings clarity, perspective and insight. Coaching acts as a catalyst, enabling you to make decisions, improve productivity and shine a light on your strengths. Often you won’t have people around you that you can give you an honest opinion, a coach can provide feedback and enable you to assess how best to move forward.

It’s amazing how being encouraged to think differently and explore new ideas can accelerate your personal and business development and enable you to formulate a clear plan to move you forward. As an experienced, qualified coach who’s worked with heads of business and executives in a range of fields from finance, government, banking, education, creative, sustainability and retail as well as charities and not for profits, I know the difference coaching can make.

Overwhelm is a common problem, and working with a coach enables you to identify what is needed, what you need to change and how to go about it, with clarity and focus.

I work with individuals as a personal development or life coach, using my non-judgmental insight to ask questions that help you make the changes needed to thrive.

If you’d like to discuss how you, your business or organisation could benefit from coaching, please email or call 07785 996917.

Consider the wonderful quote often attributed to Einstein, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results” .  Consider how changing some aspects of how you do things could transform you and your business.

I also offer life and personal development coaching and would be delighted to chat to you about how coaching can help.

Coaching for leaders & senior executives

When you’re at the top, getting an honest view from the outside can be a challenge. A Managing Director of a large media firm said recently “you’re the only one I can tell this to”. Gain an outside perspective to bring clarity, reduce stress and enable you to make better decisions. Few successful people are without a coach who acts as a sounding board where you can discuss confidentially your plans.

Boost your business with coaching

As a growing business, you may want to consolidate and consider your next move.  Working with a business coach will help you identify what you want for the business and what you need to make that happen.  Growth is so much more successful if you have a clear plan, and can ensure staff are clear about the plan, too. Coaching is an investment that is worth making, saving you time and money in the longer term.

Management & team training

Listening carefully to so many clients and businesses, I have designed original training modules and courses that are engaging and bring real change in thinking and behaviours.  For new managers and those who need a boost, ask about The Mantra of Management. Transform your teams with Resilience techniques and improve communication.  A course in coaching skills and language is vital for many organisations who want to improve communication and support.

Resilience Training


Most people at some time could do with a few extra tools and techniques to boost their resilience. I recently completed a Resilience Practitioner course and am able to share my learning with organisations that appreciate the impact a more resilience workforce will have.  With increased stress, mounting distraction and ever tighter budgets and deadlines, adding resilience to the tool kit is essential.

People love learning about resilience and find it essential not only for work life but also for home life – and once learnt, the skills can be passed on to others.

Email me if you’d like to discuss how coaching for resilience can benefit your company.
