Executive Coaching and Management Skills
I work mainly with individuals on their personal development and wellbeing. I provide services to Human Resources and Organisational Development departments, including Occupational Health. I deliver team development, one-to-one coaching, supervision, mentoring and support interventions to your workforce. Some of this work involves supporting your staff through organisational restructures, including corporate and personal change, redeployment and redundancy.
I also work in the voluntary sector with CEO's and board members. The benefits of working with a coach in this way include the commitment to future-focused action that brings about lasting change for the organisation as a whole. External and confidential support provided to the head of the organisation maintains integrity and accountability to the organisation's objectives while allowing reflection on the context of the social, regulatory, ethical, stakeholder and market environment. Coaching supports and strengthens resilience while managing the responsibilities of the board to act in the best interest of the organisation.
I work with people in high-pressure environments to work smarter not harder, balancing the responsibilities of the role with the ethical dilemmas that come with this, maintaining a healthy work/life balance.
My expertise includes:
Goal setting, planning and prioritisation
Honest and constructive feedback
Challenging organisational and cultural comfort zones
Finding new ways of working
I deliver individually tailored team building and development packages to meet your needs, with a range of team coaching, group work, and individual exercises. I can include feedback and follow-up sessions every few months if necessary, to implement action plans and support you to manage change. We will meet to consult on your requirements, plan and prepare appropriate interventions and facilitate your event to run smoothly.
I use personality profiling for individuals and teams to gain deeper insights into their strengths and weaknesses, where appropriate. DISC profiling is an assessment tool that enables you to identify different behaviour and personality traits grouped into four categories, factors or elements. These categories give an insight into how the different characteristics in each style interact with each other. You will be able to:
Communicate effectively according to the DISC category of the person you are communicating with.
Understand your motivations and behaviours – and those of others
Identify your preferred personal, social, familial and business environments- and those of others
Achieve your goals in an effective and successful way
Ensure that you include or manage the people in both your personal and business life so that your interactions are useful and enjoyable

I have experience in facilitation for multi-agency and multidisciplinary groups of people with real-life dilemmas that need a resolution. I seek consensus with innovative solutions and support the development of implementation plans back in the workplace, if appropriate. I work from Board level to customer/user groups in statutory, voluntary and independent sectors to supports organisations to develop and grow.
Health, Wellbeing and Happiness
I deliver coaching as a wellbeing and personal development intervention to Human Resources and Occupational Health Departments for staff under pressure or facing changes to their organisations, teams and working life. Coaching can support the practice of maintaining a work-life balance that increases staff psychological and physical wellbeing, productivity and performance. In times of change, offering support to individuals in this way sends a clear message to the organisation as a whole that you continue to value and support your staff, even if you may be unable to continue to employ them.
Throughout your career, individuals may need to take the time out to think about short and long-term direction. I work with people to make the right decisions and career choices by focusing on achievements, values and strengths. Exploring opportunities such as tailoring their CV and application form skills and preparing for presentations and interviews can help to secure the job of your dreams.
