I am an executive and leadership coach with other 20 years’ experience in HR roles. I am an experienced coach and have worked across all business sectors with clients at senior and middle levels. I understand the challenges leaders face having worked in a range of businesses and organisations - Corus plc, Northern Foods plc, Yorkshire Purchasing and the Primary and Secondary Education Sector.
I bring insight and empathy to my coaching work and see my role as coach, as my client’s cheerleader. I am dedicated to listening to people, giving them space to do their best thinking and to reflect. Using appropriate tools and techniques I support individuals through positive challenge, to raise their self-awareness, explore their values and strengths and to understand the choices they are making. Through questions and facilitating client reflection, I help partner with coachees to establish what thoughts and behaviours may be holding them back and to establish what it is to thrive, grow and take action to develop effectiveness.
I am passionate about supporting people on their journey to achieve their goals, build solutions, reach their potential, and make lasting changes in their work or personal life.
