About me

Executive Coach - Cheltenham, Gloucester, Stroud

BACKGROUND: My background is predominantly in International HR Operations in the Oil and Gas industry and I have lived and worked in the UK, Philippines, Kazakhstan and Qatar.

I have over twenty years’ HR and line management experience working in complex, corporate environments in the UK and internationally, including senior / global HR roles. I also spent seven years in the Crown Prosecution Service (UK Civil Service) in HR and paralegal roles.

CLIENTS: I work with people who feel stuck in their personal and professional lives and need support to work out what decisions to take next and which way to turn.

They could be facing a job loss, a promotion to a leadership role, or seeking a career change; they could be struggling to manage competing priorities in their work and lives; they might want support in their personal development. I do this by enabling people to identify what they truly want, to understand the influence that long-held beliefs can have on their choices, how they behave and come across, and to then take actions which will lead them towards lasting change. Central to this work is supporting people to learn how to access and manage their "inner critics" - the "saboteur" chatter that gets in the way - and to also build the emotional resilience essential for effective leadership.

TYPICAL ASSIGNMENTS have included managing career changes, transitioning into leadership roles, building self-awareness, self-worth and personal impact and quietening that inner critic. I have coached people at all organisational levels, from Team / Emerging Leaders to CEOs., and from many different cultures.

SECTORS in which I have coached include: Charity, Construction, Education, Engineering, Healthcare, Law, Manufacturing, Media / IT, Oil & Gas, Retail.

MY STYLE is challenging and thought provoking whilst also being supportive. I encourage people to get to know their inner selves in order to maximise their outer impact, all within the context of their organisational environment.

WHAT'S IT LIKE TO PARTNER WITH ME? "With Siobhain's support and coaching I feel greater resilience, self-belief together with an increased confidence - I am now excited and very much looking forward to the future and my new job."

"Siobhain has helped me gain a much stronger sense of my own capabilities and resources, inspiring me to take greater risks and to achieve bigger successes."

"Siobhain has helped me to refocus where I want to take my business and to think about how to spend time on making this happen."

"Siobhain has helped me gain clarity, self-awareness and new perspectives on such a wide range of topics. The insights I have gained in my coaching sessions have led me to a number of positive changes in my life."

We approached Siobhain to support us through our first year as Co-CEOs for the Charity. She helped us immensely: understanding the landscape of leadership; enabling authentic conversations; allowing space for thoughts to generate; and demonstrating genuine care and thought. It was incredibly worthwhile and we feel better equipped to respond to whatever the future holds. Ali Mawle & Ian George, Cheltenham Festivals.


Whenever I have worked with Siobhain, either as a client or as an observer, I've felt in very safe hands. Siobhain manages to access all her expertise and knowledge to make the coaching experience feel very unique and tailored to you. At the same time, she allows so much space for you to do the deep thinking and work that is needed to make a real and lasting shift. This is coaching at its best. Go ahead and hire Siobhain.


I have worked with Siobhain in peer to peer coaching and mentor coaching. Her superpower is in balanced use of listening and silence. She gets right to the heart of the issue with her insightful questions yet she is able to give space for the client's own creative thinking. Her dry sense of humour is priceless. I would highly recommend Siobhain for any coach looking to improve their core competencies, and indeed for any client feeling stuck.


I have worked with Siobhain in a tremendous peer coaching format where I have personally benefitted from both her advanced coaching skills but her ability to mentor coach me on my competencies. Siobhain has helped me to refocus where I want to take my business and to think about how to spend time on making this happen and for that I am grateful. Her deep listening and ability to get to the deeper awareness of what is going on for her client is recommended of those needing to think and reset their goals.


I initially contacted Siobhain as I was feeling stuck in a rut in my career and felt I did not wish to continue in my role long-term however was unsure of next steps. The pre-work Siobhain sent helped to identify what my work goals were and what aspects of work are important to me from both a personal and professional perspective. Using these work goals, Siobhain helped me to appreciate my skills, capabilities and experience and to embrace them as opposed to feeling "lucky" - I subsequently revised and updated my CV to reflect this. Unfortunately COVID-19 hit and I was then made redundant which was both unexpected and devastating at the time. The work I had already put in with Siobhain both on my CV and personally however, stood me in good stead - my confidence had increased dramatically and I was able to network and build connections on LinkedIn which I am happy to report led to me securing a new job with one of the top 15 pharmaceutical companies. With Siobhain's support and career coaching I feel greater resilience, self-belief together with an increased confidence - I am now excited and very much looking forward to the future and my new job. I would not hesitate in recommending Siobhain. L.Bristow.


I first met Siobhain, virtually, two years ago. I was drawn by her practical, calm professionalism. This lead me to engage her as my Coach and I have been delighted by the trust we have built which has allowed me to explore and question aspects of me much more deeply than with other coaches. As a result of these sessions I am more fearless, less concerned about other's perception and challenging myself to stretch and try new things; an interesting and continuing learning experience. I have much time and respect for Siobhain and recommend her services to anyone considering coaching. DF, Director.


Siobhain is an excellent coach and has always managed to bring out the best in me. She is patient and radiates calmness which makes it easier to go deeper into the process. Her approach is very intuitive and thought provoking and this has always helped me reach my potential. I always feel calm and settled post my sessions with Siobhain. This helps me put my trust in the process and in her. - Kiran Matta


Siobhain is a professional coach with a high sense of integrity and she truly puts her client's success at the center of their relationship. Siobhain's approach is very professional and warm, with the ability to immediately create the conditions for an open and worthy relationships. Siobhain helps her clients to gain a better understanding of themselves and creating powerful intentions and results from a stronger self-awareness. Siobhain has a wonderful ability to listen and articulate back what is most critical for the client's growth and she challenges in a delicate yet determined way, when she believes it is in the best interest of her client. The thing that I like the most about Siobhain is her ability to create the conditions for a safe and courageous space to support her clients to take risks, to grow bigger and to appreciate themselves more. Siobhain has helped me gain a much stronger sense of my own capabilities and resources, inspiring me to take greater risks and to achieve bigger successes. Thank you Siobhain. F.A.


Siobhain has a calm presence and she radiates trust when she holds me as a client, allowing me to explore, in the safe space that she creates. Siobhain is very strong with visualizations, of which I was never a huge fan before, she has shown me the strength and value of visualization by gently inviting me to explore and encourage me to dive in deeper. Siobhain has a great way of managing the flow of a session, by checking in every now and then and ensuring that I am on track. I.R.


I went to Siobhain whilst I was at a cross roads in my career and I was really struggling to figure out my next steps. She helped me review my career, discover what exactly I wanted from my next role and some different approaches in finding a new job. She also made some excellent observations as we explored my past and discussed my future. I secured a new job during the period I was working with Siobhain and her coaching definitely played a fundamental role in my success. Siobhain is professional, friendly and easy to work with and I am sure can bring clarity to any situation presented to her. E. Oke (Project Manager)
