For me, it's more than coaching

My job title might be Executive Coach, but what I offer to business leaders is intentionally more than that.

I believe in bringing the entirety of my experience, skills and knowledge to the table to help my clients achieve the personal and professional success they desire.

Using a blend of coaching, mentoring, strategising and advisory support, we’ll work together to get you and your team not only where you need to be, but where you want to be.

Some amazing clients...

Working in partnership

When I say I’m bringing the full breadth of my experience and skills to the table, that means two decades of director-level success in the banking sector, years of coaching leaders from a variety of industries, and my credentials as an executive coach.

Combine your expertise and experience with mine, and we’re a force to be reckoned with.

I say ‘we’ because this is an active process for us both, working in partnership to enable you to achieve your objectives, whether I’m helping you directly or supporting your team.

My role adapts to suit your needs, from coach and mentor to advisor and consultant – collaboration is the integral element for you to achieve results faster whilst being supported every step of the way.

My approach

My clients describe my approach as straightforward and pragmatic, and supportive yet challenging.

I’m by your side with my sleeves rolled up, invested fully in your success. Primarily, my objective is to connect with you in a way that makes conversations flow easily.

I’ve coached leaders from all walks of life, and they consistently say they can be immediately open with me because I understand and appreciate their world. We get to the heart of things quickly so they can reach results faster whilst being supported every step of the way.

The topics I work with are varied, but I help leaders most frequently with:

  • Career progression and change
  • Role transitions
  • Leadership development
  • Strategic and advisory input
  • Navigating corporate life
  • Handling tricky situations
  • Confidence
  • Burnout prevention or recovery

For teams, it’s about enabling success through coaching, mentoring and team development.

Ultimately, people choose to work with me for a meaningful partnership that delivers results, approached in a way that is bespoke to their personal and professional needs to achieve outcomes faster.

Ready To Explore Working Together?

Outside the office

When I’m not bringing my full breadth of experience to work, you can find me enjoying a long countryside walk with my four-legged friend, Lexi, or getting a cuppa at great independent cafes.

If you’re connected with me on LinkedIn, you probably already know how much I enjoy exploring the Lancashire and Yorkshire countryside on my doorstep, and you’ll get a strong idea of what it’s like to work with me.

I can also be found attempting to grow my own veg (with varied success), enjoying a spot of retail therapy and time with family and friends, or absorbing myself in the latest crime drama (I’m always happy to discuss Happy Valley, Line of Duty, and more!).

Two Books Too

I’ve penned 2 books in recent years on topics close to my heart. The bestseller ‘Have It All Without Burning Out’ was launched in 2019, and its companion ‘Confidence Confessions’ followed in 2022. Both books are available in all formats – discover more information and all the links to buy by clicking the buttons below.
