About me

Executive Coaching Chelmsford, Essex & London

I am a professionally trained and accredited Executive Coach following a successful career as Director of Sales and Operations of a leading HR management consultancy firm. My area of focus is to find, support and leverage the best in my clients through using a brain based approach to understand what drives our behaviour. Enhancing where it works well and creating new strategies to increase professional effectiveness. I combine commercial acumen and insight with coaching skills to deliver tangible results for my clients. Based in Chelmsford and working throughout Essex and London, I encourage and support my clients to create and add value to their professional lives as well as to individuals, teams and the bottom line.

Building trust

After graduating I began my corporate career in advertising working with The Financial Times, becoming their youngest manager of a division; I went on to reinvent my career three times. Following a brief time in Headhunting, I moved to Management Consultancy rapidly rising to a Director of Sales and Operations and then trained to become an Executive Coach. I can relate well to changing career paths and building trust when leading new teams and living with purpose. Through these changes there were the connecting themes of being client facing, increasing commercial growth and leading and developing people.

Behavioural & transformational change

Since 2010, I have been running my own successful coaching business working with senior executives and young managers to enhance their leadership, communication and influencing skills and strategic business development skills, to deliver commercial sustainability and behavioural and transformational change. I am known for taking my clients to the edge and holding their vision to enable them to achieve more than what they ever thought possible.

Insightfully supportive & energetic

My coaching clients describe working with me as challenging, fun, pragmatic, insightfully supportive and energetic. I have experience coaching across both the private and public sectors and coaching those operating in complex environments with multiple stakeholders. Mostly my clients work in Energy, Professional and Financial Services, Technology, Retail, FMCG and Consultancy companies alongside Central and Local Government and the NHS. I engage with my clients either 1:1 or via Skype/FaceTime, as I am fortunate to be working with clients worldwide which brings experience of great diversity in terms of nationality, location as well as professional background. I am also privileged to be a Coach to the Diocese of Chelmsford and to The Marketing Academy supporting young marketing talent.

I worked with Elizabeth for nearly a year and in that time, she helped me unlock how I saw my own career ambitions, as well as provide me with some invaluable support as I navigated two tricky roles. I still rely on her advice and would not be as happy in my current role without her coaching. Elizabeth really listens and takes time to understand who she is working with and their motivations. Suffice to say, I owe her a lot! B Cooper, strategist at eatbigifsh

Elizabeth has been my coach for the last 6 months & through her skill has helped me achieve considerable breakthrough in my business. Elizabeth creates a very safe environment, enabling me to think well for myself without judgment or direction. In my experience, her particular skill comes from knowing just the right question to ask & when to share a particular insight. Additionally, Elizabeth has shared some relevant reading material which I have found transformational. It is my pleasure to recommend Elizabeth wholeheartedly.

I have worked with Elizabeth on a number of occasions over the last 5 years. She is a skilled and gifted coach with incredible insight, empathy and warmth. Her coaching style has enabled me to be honest with myself about my strengths and weaknesses in leadership, without judgement, and has brought into my awareness the 'blind spots' which manifest themselves in stressful and contentious situations. She challenges my assumptions and because she is aware of how resistant I am to hearing positive messages, she uses a variety of approaches to reinforce positive feedback. Elizabeth constantly encourages me to bring all my gifts to the task of leadership, pointing me to the more unusual aspects of my leadership style as revealed in the IDI and how these can be used in the service of the world. Using NLP and other tools, she has helped me to re-write some of the over-rehearsed and ancient scripts in my mind which have prevented me from being the best that I can be. Above all, she has helped me to dream dreams and to break out of the confines of all that I had perceived as "received wisdom" so that I am able to honour my own wisdom and work more authentically. I thank her for enabling the closing years of my working life to be fulfilled in ways that I had never thought possible.

Elizabeth is a very skilled coach who has helped me to develop strategies to deal with depression and anxiety symptoms including critical voices, unhelpful inner narratives and panic. By patient questioning and offering insights in a non-directive way, EA has helped with thinking about work and life choices. One of her best skills is holding a safely silent space allowing my brain enough time to think, especially after being affected by a stroke. EA also picked up how I think better in metaphors and images and used this in her coaching to enable me to see new perspectives and review old ones. I warmly recommend Elizabeth to anyone seeking her coaching assistance with both work and life issues. JJ Anglican Priest

During the past five years Elizabeth has been an exceptional coach enabling me to widen my horizon and grow professionally and personally. What sets Elizabeth apart, is that she knows and understands the financial industry, has an insightful approach and acts as a valuable independent sounding board. She opened my eyes to see opportunities and avoid distractions. Elizabeth coached me in the UK (in person) and in Germany and the USA (using Skype). I wish I would have met her earlier and highly recommend her. Christine B., Partner, Investment Fund, USA.
