One of the aspects I enjoy most about working as a coach is seeing my clients make real and significant changes during the assignment. The effects of these changes ripple through their organisations. So, what we end up working on towards the end of the process is often not what we thought we might be working on at the beginning. The coaching becomes a dynamic and exciting process for both of us, responding to the needs of the client - and their teams and organisation. Having worked in operational management and leadership myself - as well as extensive consulting and coaching experience - my style is pragmatic, as well as insightful and intuitive. I do not shy away from having difficult conversations or giving difficult feedback; I encourage my clients to do likewise.
Having also trained and practised as a psychotherapist, I have a deep understanding of the human psyche, and am well qualified to work at depth as and when required. I am often invited to work with clients where stress, trauma and relationships present particular challenges. To support my coaching and facilitation practice, I have developed a unique experiental approach to the learning: in the outdoors with horses. This innovation is true to my heart, and is one of the fastest, most gentle and effective ways of helping clients that I know. It is optional, but it does accelerate and enhance a coaching process when combined with 'indoor' sessions. Clients learn to make the necessary changes to find their Best Self, and they have fun working with me. Work and learning should be fun! I live in Wiltshire, where I love to ride my horses, take long walks with the dogs, and go dancing whenever I can.
