How I see coaching


what I can offer you

To find two coaches who define coaching in the same way, seems as likely as being hit by lightening.... twice. I will try to explain how I see coaching and hopefully this resonates with you. In my mind having a coach is like having a personal trainer, not for your body, but for your mind and your life. Both the personal trainer and the coach will support you in the process, but you will have to do the work yourself.


As a coach I believe that you know yourself better than anybody else, that you are the person best to decipher what is best for you and how to live your life. You do not need curing or fixing in any way. This is where coaching differs from therapy and mentoring. The therapist will want to heal you and the mentor will want to tell you how to achieve your goals.


I believe that we all have patterns in our lives, in how we live from day to day, how we think, what we feel and how we react to others. Some patterns are helpful when navigating a complex world, while others are not and sometimes they can be difficult to recognise in our busy lives. Therefore it is at times helpful to have someone else outside you who really listens and help you to clarify what is your values, goals and possibilities in life. 


I, as your coach, will aim to create a safe space where you can take time to discover how you want be a part of the world around you. I aim to do this in a caring and fun way, where you get to take centre stage, shine and make decisions which will benefit you for the rest of your life. 

I am especially interested in the following areas:

  • happiness

  • resilience

  • work-life balance

  • health and fitness

  • sexuality

  • LGBTQI community

  • working in an multi-disciplinary organisation (like the NHS, research etc)

  • starting up and running small businesses

  • change at work (including redundancy and retirement)

  • issues around living in a foreign country

I am looking forward to working with you!
