About me

Executive Coach & Coach Supervisor - Beaconsfield

Fiona is an accredited ICF coach (PCC), coach supervisor and consultant working with leaders and technical experts who need to increase their influence and impact within working environments. She works with individuals and groups of managers to deliver organisational results through powerful, purposeful conversations. Fiona naturally values individuality and personal strengths and enables clients to feel comfortable working with every aspect of their role.

Leadership Coaching

She uses her 30 years’ experience of working with UK and global organisations to help operational leaders to explore and understand their challenges, ensuring they identify the choices they have for personal and organisational development. Leaders grow in confidence and competence in communicating, taking decisions and implementing actions leading to improved business results.

All organisations are systems built on a network of relationships within which actions and perceptions constantly change. Although this brings complexity, the upside is that leaders can influence each situation by communicating clearly and flexibly choosing how they react and respond.

I addressed my personal conflict in working within a Government Department with Fiona as my personal coach. She helped me to make a valuable contribution despite the dysfunctional environment. When I was ready to move on to a new role, she helped me to work out my strengths and where I could make a contribution - and to prepare - and then get my dream job! I've also commissioned her to coach others - equally successfully.

Fiona is my 'turn to' coach. She and I work together sporadically now, however, when I have truly thorny issue to work through Fiona is my 'turn to' coach. She will always ask the insightful question that unlocks my thinking power and connects me with the resolution I need. LC
