Leadership Coach - Nottingham
After a long career in Social Care, the NHS and the Voluntary sector I left the stresses of senior leadership behind to establish my own business as a Coach, Psychotherapist and Independent Supervisor. This was a big change from being an Accountant and Senior Leader but one which felt absolutely right at the time and has proven to be so in every successive year of business ownership.
I am a qualified and highly experienced Executive and Performance Coach and Psychotherapist with additional skills in Supervision, Mediation and Leadership. I work relationally, which means I get to know my clients, building rapport and a deep understanding of their hopes and aspirations. It’s this process which enables me to offer real insight about what might be getting in the way of progress. I work creatively and with curiosity, to identify what my clients want, where they’re going and how to get there.
I am truly energised when working with people to support Authenticity and Resilience. These aspects are two sides of the same coin. Working on one will only get you so far.
Similarly, Psychotherapy and Coaching are also of greatest help when used together. Both take place in the present with one looking at your past and the other at your future. This is a truly holistic approach.
In simple terms, with my support you will become the authentic human being you were always meant to be and have the resilience to stay there.
For those of you who like a bit of theory I use a positive coaching process based on the principles of “Appreciative Inquiry” underpinned by the therapeutic principle of “Self Actualisation”. It is positive and aspirational in equal measure.
My work is underpinned by robust ethics and a deep values-driven process.
The values I bring to my work are: Humour, Autonomy, Understanding, Care, the right to Self-Determination and Freedom of Thought.
You don’t need to share my values for us to work together but it’s helpful for you to know what they are.
I believe that anyone working in the field of personal and professional development needs to bring more than a desire to help people and a working knowledge of the fundamentals. Training and ongoing CPD is essential for effective practice.
I actively engage in my own CPD and regularly bring new skills, tools and understanding to my work. I believe working on self development is the greatest thing we can do and is a lifelong work in progress: I ensure I practice what I preach.
Finally, the next stage of my Coaching career is as a writer of self-help and inspirational books. My first offering, 'The Should Stick', is a beautifully illustrated pocket-book with a powerful message. It's all about being YOU.
