About me

Executive Coach & Supervisor - London & the South East

A Senior Practitioner Coach and Supervisor, accredited with the European Mentoring & Coaching Council and the Coaching Supervision Academy. I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development where I mentor HR professionals. I have 17 years coaching experience.

I have experience working at leadership level across diverse cultures, developing national and global, talent and employee engagement strategies. I am proud to have been part of the Deloitte team which set up the Mental Health Champions programme, award-winning Diversity Networks, transitions coaching for parents and the most innovative wellbeing programme of its time. It was while I was at Deloitte I started my coaching journey working with senior managers, directors, and partners. I left Deloitte at the end of 2012 to set up my own business, in fact Deloitte was my first client.

Working in Partnership
Pragmatic and resourceful, I have learnt by experience that increasing self-awareness leads to great results. I create a space for curiosity, discovery and reflection in today’s complex, ever-changing world, drawing on a ’toolkit’ of resources based on research and experience.

Why me
I can draw from my own leadership experience and knowledge of working in a professional, fast paced environment. I partner with my clients to find solutions and a way forward by widening their perspective and achieving a greater sense of self-awareness. My clients say I am, ‘pragmatic, a great listener, and challenging’. I am reflective by preference, considered and supportive .

What do I bring
Coaching often involves working with people who have achieved success in their careers but whose future requires them to shift perspective, to develop emotional intelligence, resilience and greater self awareness. These are my areas of expertise, built up through years of research, learning through experience and formal training.

My clients
I work with a wide range of clients ranging from professional services to entertainment. I am part of a wellbeing collaborative which includes organisations and individuals whose aim is to bring wellbeing, health, and happiness into people's lives. I deliver pro-bono coaching to those working in the not for profit sector as well as designing and facilitating affordable workshops for small and medium sized companies. The best way to learn about me is to read what the individuals I have worked with say. You can find client reviews here on the Directory or on my Linked in profile. Below is a comment from one of my clients.
“I wanted an independent coach, someone who could hold the mirror up when I needed it which Val did in an open and honest way. ” – CEO, Private Healthcare .

I've been lucky enough to have worked with Val for over the past 12 months now, and found her to be most helpful to me both personally and professionally. Val was able to use her past experiences and coaching skills to assist in providing me with a 'set of tools' that I could use with my business, people and clients. With each session, I was able to take those learnings and introduce them into my day to day world. R.P.


I have been working with Val as my coach for just over a year now. We completed an initial course of coaching that ended last summer, but given the benefits I experienced we have since extended this and have now commenced a second course of coaching. I find Val to be very easy to talk to and she has a very common sense approach. She is helped me in giving a fresh insight into specific events or challenges that I have shared with her as part of my coaching programme. I would have no hesitation in recommending Val as an executive coach. Mark Finch, Solicitor and General Counsel


I have had the pleasure of having Valerie as my career coach. I learned so much more about myself and became far more self aware. When I met Valerie I was at a junction in my career. I was a successful senior manager with an industry leading UK company being head hunted for senior roles. I was able to have very frank and confidential conversations with Valerie and although she never once told me what to do she provided me with the tools to look deeply into myself, my goals and my ambitions. I am now a senior partner in a firm, completely outside of my previous 21 year industry and sector career. Almost 9 months after making a career change I have visited countries which I had never been to before, met professionals who I would've never meet before and have learnt something new everyday to the point of me learning a new language. The organisation I joined has more than quadrupled in size and has now stepped into operating in Europe. To be able to realise your talents is one thing, however having the courage and determination is another. For me, Valerie helped me harness the inner businessman inside and grasp the opportunities I continue to have in front of me today. AW, Partner - Business and Development Director


I have known Val both as a business leader and as a coach. Val combines these skills in her coaching in a highly effective way. She built a trusting relationship with me and supported me through a number of complex decisions, whilst steadily raising my levels of self-awareness in a way that has had long term impact. Val helped me keep a focus on what was important to me. I valued her flexible style which was both challenging and supportive at different times. I wanted an independent coach, someone who could hold the mirror up when I needed it which Val did in an open and honest way.


I have worked with Val before she joined Trusted Coach. I found her to be a warm, friendly and professional coach. She has loads of coaching experience which is evident when you are coached by her. I gained a lot from every coaching session and gained some real insights. AS
