Having worked in a number of roles in broadcast journalism, comms and PR, and having always had an interest in psychology, I decided I wanted to train in personal performance coaching and use my skills to help people achieve their true potential.
I turned to coaching at a point when I was struggling to find purpose in my career and I never could have anticipated how much it would help me, at a pivotal time in my life, as I got struck with an advanced cancer shortly after starting my training.
This unexpected obstacle became an opportunity, as I used the time I had off work to finish my coaching qualification with Distinction. My own personal experience helped me realise I wanted to work with people in the midst of a challenging transition and help them find their way in navigating the unknown.
I work with clients wanting to move forward in many different areas, from career and work-life balance, to living with chronic illness or relationships. They often come to me for support at a time when they feel life has taken an unexpected turn, hasn’t gone to plan or they find themselves facing a life defining crossroads.
My main aim is to empower my clients by helping them reclaim control of their own futures in the face of change, whether it’s of their choosing or not, and gain perspective. I seek to unlock their full potential, by determining what’s important to them and what they want to achieve, what may be getting in the way of their vision, and what steps they need to take to get to where they want to be. I support them in attaining their self-set goals, while ensuring the responsibility and accountability lies with them.
I am fully committed to providing a safe, free of judgement space for my clients to explore and reflect on their situation, and to work with them on feeling happier, building their resilience and confidence, improving their overall performance and bringing balance to their lives.
Additionally, I'm trained in DISC personality profiling and can profile individuals and groups. This international recognised behavioural model allows me to identify a person's main character traits and understand what motivates them, what their preferred environment might be, how they might approach tasks or challenges, how they prefer to process information, how they communicate with others, the pace which they prefer to work at and much more.
Exploring a team's DISC profiles can really help to understand how to manage, motivate and maximise the performance of its team members, which can mean the difference between success and failure.
