About me

Executive Coach - Leeds

I am an executive coach, coach supervisor and highly skilled facilitator with many years successful experience in Personal Development and the Corporate world both in the UK and overseas.

I have been employed as a consultant and coach across both the public and private sector before deciding to work for myself in 2002. I now spend most of my working time coaching, supervising coaches and designing and facilitating coach development programmes for internal, external coaches and line managers.

Capability Stretch
My coaching clients are often executives, leaders or individuals who are looking for new direction and purpose in their professional or personal lives. Who want to stretch themselves or need some space to work through significant issues which may include career transition, developing their strengths, perfectionism, stress and burnout, building relationships, self-belief, personal presence and well-being.

My supervision clients value the light touch combination of safety, insight and new perspectives that allow for a robust exploration of their work to add value for their own clients.

How I will Work with You
My approach draws on extensive learning and experience to respond to what my clients need. These include mindfulness, emotional intelligence, positive psychology, emergent learning, physical movement, nature and the outdoors. I build trust quickly, get to the heart of issues and by working with high support and high challenge enable my clients to excel in their roles.

I have an interest in the climate and sustainability and this often comes up in my work with leaders and coaches.

Jan is an excellent coach supervisor that I have always found to be empathetic, gentle and supportive while still challenging me to come at my thinking from a different perspective. I have gained a great deal working with Jan and often find myself thinking 'what would Jan ask me about this that could help me right now'. What most often comes back is a sense of warmth and kindness that reminds me to be less critical of myself and to have more faith in what I am co-creating with my clients. Coaching can often feel like a lonely occupation but with Jan as my Supervisor I know I have a safe space to visit whenever I need it. T Boyle, Executive Coach


I've really enjoyed and appreciated my coaching sessions with Jan. I particularly appreciated her relational approach; her ability to provide a sense of psychological safety within the relationship so as to enable me to explore issues that might otherwise have felt tricky. Its interesting to be able to look back on the topic I first took for discussion six months ago and see how things have unlocked for me. I'm not sure the situation had materially changed, but my sense of being able to have control and agency has changed. I'd welcome the opportunity to work with Jan again in the future. Alex Hamlin, Consultant Clinical Psychologist


I am delighted to write a recommendation for Jan. We have been working together for over 12 months and with Jan’s excellent coaching ability and her very empathetic approach, I have had an amazing journey and results. Jan listens intently and is considered in response, constantly helping you think about certain subjects when my natural style would be reactive. This has made a significant difference to how I’ve adapted and ultimately changed in the past 12 months. I have learnt a great deal as Jan shares much both in terms of reading, own knowledge and others approaches. It’s been insightful looking inwards at myself and appreciating the various tools and tactics I can use in certain situations. Jan is very easy to connect and engage with so I have looked forward to our coaching sessions and know we’ll stay in touch through the relationship we have formed. I highly recommend Jan to support both individuals and organisations as they seek to be the very best that they can be. Alison Davies.


As my coach supervisor, Jan is not only supportive and appropriately challenging, she also has the knack of asking just the right question to stop me in my tracks and make me think. She is particularly skilled at feeding back what she is noticing in our work, which is so helpful as I continue to reflect after our session is finished. Jan is very knowledgeable, and is generous in offering to share and recommend readings relevant to our work together. These have been interesting and helpful in informing my thinking and coaching practice. I experience all aspects of Jan’s coach supervision – supportive holding, provision of continuing professional development, and quality assurance of my work as a coach – to be underpinned by professionalism, integrity, and a non-judgemental way of being. I learn lots from our sessions, and highly recommend Jan. Margaret, coaching psychologist and professional trainer


Jan has been my coaching supervisor for the last 5 - 6 years. I really look forward to the time we have together. It is precious time for me to think about my coaching practice, what is working well and what I want to do to continue to grow and develop. What I love about working with Jan is that she always provides a safe space for me to think things through and her questions are insightful. She is happy to share her experience and knowledge if that is what I am looking for, but knows when to just let me work things through myself too. I can highly recommend Jan as a coaching supervisor for anyone who is looking for one and indeed have done so previously. Chrissie Martindale MBPs - Director Power of One Assessments Ltd


Having worked with numerous coaches in the past this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a testimonial which speaks volumes about Jan's ability and impact as a coach. Jan's thoughtful questioning alongside relevant support material enabled me to determine my own actions and quickly resolve work challenges and in turn personally develop. Working with Jan you benefit from a coach that obviously keeps her own personal development up to date and is in touch with current and relevant material and theories, occasionally drawing on these insights when appropriate. John Hicks, A.C.I.B.


I have found Jan to be a very knowledgeable and skilled coach, who is easy to work with. I felt instantly comfortable in her presence seeing a shift in my thinking at the end of our first session! Jan has a number of theories she draws on naturally within the sessions which help to extended your thinking. I would recommend Jan wholeheartedly; her professional style and approach enabled me to consider myself and the needs of the organisation, enabling me to find solutions to knotty strategic issues.
