I am extremely passionate about coaching others to reach their full potential and have focussed on this for the past 6 years. Prior to this I spent 10 years working in commercial management roles within large organisations, which has given me a great understanding of what motivates individuals and what factors hold them back. I decided to move into coaching because I realised that I had a deep interest in helping people lead a more fulfilling life. I find it particularly rewarding to help people who have low confidence in their own ability to reach their goals.

Style: My style is warm and approachable and I build rapport quickly with people from all walks of life. I ensure individual clients reach their full potential by helping them define what they want to achieve, and by breaking their goals down into manageable chunks. My clients have have described me as professional, focussed and empathetic.

My corporate experience includes 1-2-1 performance coaching, DISC profiling workshops and skills training for clients such as The British Film Institute, Cadbury, General Mills UK, Instinet, Dyson and Wickes.
I worked in sales and marketing for Unilever for 12 years where my experience included leading the marketing strategy for a brand with over £100m turnover and managing large teams of people both directly and cross-functionally. This has given me an invaluable understanding of how to influence and inspire people at all levels.
I decided to retrain as a professional coach after having experienced coaching myself and realising the huge impact it can make on people's lives. I am passionate about helping others feel more confident and fulfilled at work.
