About me

Career Coach - Bristol, South West & London


I am an independent coach and facilitator. I'm also a consultant coach/facilitator with several consultancies including Broadwater Training, MorganRedwood, Tricia Glaves Consulting, Form & Function development, and No.9.

I am recognised as an excellent personal coach for people in organisations, with a particular skill in listening, helping coachees sort the wheat from the chaff and move forward towards pragmatic solutions, inspiration, insight and motivation.

I genuinely enjoy my work, I base mine and others development in learning from relevant and considered experience. I have a particular skill in developing multi-layered tasks, activities and sessions; backing them up with reflection to the real world and appropriate theory. I deliver in a relaxed but stimulating way, aiming to create a positive environment, building great sessions, working alongside great facilitators.
