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.

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.

Looking for new meaning

My coaching clients are often executives, leaders or individuals who are looking for new meaning and purpose in their professional or personal lives. They want to stretch themselves or who 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, support and challenge that allow for a robust exploration of their own client work.

My interests are in working with those in transition and supporting the building of resilience, mindfulness, compassion and an awareness of the use of heart energy in our work.

Emotional Intelligence

My approach draws on extensive learning and experience to respond to what the client needs. These include mindfulness, emotional intelligence, positive psychology, emergent learning, physical movement, nature and the outdoors.

My experience, both in the UK and overseas, has given me a valuable perspective on individuals and organisations. I am a member of the Association for Coaching, a member volunteer with the Association of Coaching Supervisors, CSA Accredited Coach Supervisor and a Fellow of the CIPD. I have written several articles, some of which have been published in Fenman’s Coach the Coach and Training Journal and also had the privilege of being a judge for the Training Journal Best Coaching Programme in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

My clients say that I build trust, quickly get to the heart of issues and am a role model for Continuing Professional Development.

If you would like to explore how I could help you or your teams stay resilient or work through transition please drop me an email, call me on 07984 420348, connect with me on LinkedIn or click on the 'send message' button below.
I look forward to chatting with you.

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. Jane Stafford, Founder and CEO at Child Dynamix
