Coaching is a process that enables individuals to make wise choices and decisions which resonate with their values and which will bring a greater sense of fulfillment.
Coaching is particularly suitable for people who:
Are looking to have greater job satisfaction or more impact at work
Are trying to return to work after taking time out
Feel stuck in a rut with any aspect of their life and want a better quality of life
The coaching approach I use is ‘Co-active’ (taught by the prestigious Coaches Training Institute, CTI), which means that we work together in a partnership. At all times I will be supporting you and your agenda, as I know you have the creativity and resourcefulness to find your own answers. The principles behind the ‘Co-active’ approach are openness, respect, compassion and to rigorously speak the truth. I have a relaxed , warm style which puts people at ease.
I will help you become more conscious of behaviours or attitudes which may inhibit you from achieving your goals. I will support you in doing this by holding you accountable to take the steps to achieve them. For example, you will decide your own actions through the coaching and we will then agree together when you will do them and how you will let me know, in order to maintain momentum.
I have worked in Human Resources and Sales in a range of large International companies across the Oil, Airline and FMCG sectors. I have experience of working with Senior Executives and also of managing teams. I have also worked as a Primary school teacher. I work successfully with people from a wide range of different backgrounds.
I have made major changes myself, including living in different countries and moving industries and disciplines. I have also balanced working and bringing up children and understand well the challenges involved. I know the courage and energy that is required to make changes and will help my clients find, within themselves, the power to make the life and career they long for.
I am based in Twickenham, South-West London, but my training has equipped me to coach over the telephone and through Skype, so I am able to coach people anywhere. If desired, an initial face to face meeting can be arranged in the Twickenham area or central London.
