Passionate about motivating and inspiring others
I am a Coach because I am passionate about helping people who, like you, don't want to use any more of their time, energy or money on things that aren't right for them. Life is too short!
This process is all about you. If you believe deep-down that you want more and you're willing to explore what you need (and get honest with yourself!), I can help you get from where you are now to where you want to be: living a life you love.
Flavour of who I am...
Clients have described me as having a good sense of humour, calm, compassionate, friendly and firm but realistic with goal-setting. (You can see some of my testimonials here.) I am truly grateful for such words!
My core values are Faith and Wholeheartedness (we'll figure out what yours are together).
I have 14 years' experience working in both the public and private sector pre-coaching.
I am grateful to have explored 35 countries to date and it's my dream to add one each year!
I was born and bred in beautiful Norfolk, where my family all still live, bar my sister.
I have a coach myself, as well as a Gestalt therapist, and am completely committed to continuous self-improvement (and practicing what you preach!)
I have a BA (Hons), Post-Grad in Management and a PGCE.
As well as 104 Coach Training hours with CTI (see below) I also have CPD courses including: NLP Practitioner, Life Coaching Diploma and Certified Counselling Practitioner with the Academy of Modern Applied Psychology.
Training and Experience
Because my coaching is conducted via phone or video call, I have had the pleasure of working with men and women aged from early-20s to mid-70s from all over the UK, South East Asia, Africa and Europe. It is incredible to work with so many different types of people, hearing their stories and seeing them through their unique process of change.
My training is with the Co-Active® Training Institute, the largest and longest-established coach training body in the world. The Co-Active® coach training is considered the most rigorous, accredited programme available for professional coaching development and is delivered by expert coaches and supervisors. It is accredited by the International Coaching Federation.
Most importantly, I know what's it's like to feel lost, stuck and drowning in indecision. I know that by listening to my fears, I've been trapped and have found it hard to find a way forward. I've learned (and I'm always learning) how to embrace my fears, face life head on, be vulnerable to living in authenticity and with connection, and pursue my calling of supporting other people to do the same.
If you want to stop letting your fears run you, let's get you moving towards a life fully lived.
Doing this work is a privilege.
