ABOUT ME

BSc (Hons), MA (Psych), PG Dip (Psych), PG Cert, MBACP, MAfC

I believe you're the expert on you; I see my role as helping you to remove all the blocks and barriers that life has put in your way.  Together, we find a way forward.

My background

With over twenty years experience working in leadership roles in national and global organisations before retraining in psychology and business coaching,  I fully understand the highs and lows of corporate life.  And what it takes to create sustainable personal and professional change.  Now an experienced and certified Executive Coach, Psychotherapist, Systemic Team Coach and Coaching Supervisor working in private practice and with organisations, I thrive on helping people identify the lives they truly want to lead, and providing support through the changes they need to make. 

 

My Executive Coaching qualification was gained with the International Coach Federation accredited ILM L7 (PG Cert), and I achieved a Master's degree  and Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy with the prestigious psychology faculty at the University of Roehampton.   I completed the International Systemic Team Coaching certificate with the Association of Executive Coaching (AoEC), and became a certified Coach and Mentor Supervisor with Blue Sky International.

As part of the Executive Committee for the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's  (BACP) Coaching Division,  I promote effective, ethical and professional coaching for the enhancement of individuals and organisations across the UK.

 

My philosophy and approach

My work with clients in therapeutic and coaching relationships is built on a foundation of warmth, trust and respect, and underpinned by the psychotherapeutic principles of increasing self-awareness and self-acceptance to enable long-term psychological and behavioural change to be achieved.  To help people gain the confidence to 'bring your whole self' to work, relationships, and life in general,  I work with the whole unique person, as well as the challenges initially presented. 

 

Working with energy and compassion, the breadth and depth of my training enables me to  develop a solution-focussed approach for each client that is uniquely tailored to their early background and life experiences,  and current personal and professional challenges.  I can flexibly adapt how we work together as our relationship progresses, autonomy grows, and goals evolve.
