About me

I am both a communications expert and an experienced and effective coach. I have worked in middle and senior management positions and have both academic and practical leadership experience. I bring this to coaching sessions and offer a unique mix of coaching and mentoring where appropriate. Communications cuts across all sectors of business and my insights and expertise help to move clients forward.

I provide a bespoke coaching programme for every client and adjust my approach each time to ensure I use the right blend of material and the most effective coaching style.

Before setting up my coaching practice I worked as Head of Marketing and Communications for a large housing group, leading teams across two locations. During this time I was coached by three different coaches, all with different styles and approaches. This coaching was fundamental in helping me to progress through the organisation and make a success of my role. As a result I became passionate about the benefits of coaching, and began practising coaching methods within my team. I trained as a coach in 2007 and began coaching both within and outside the organisation, before setting up my own coaching business in 2009.
