Why I coach

I am altruistic and driven by a wish to help others, underpinned by my core values of curiosity, learning, honesty, fairness, and kindness. Coaching then is a way that I can help others and make the world a better place. I particularly work with people from the public/voluntary sectors, those who are interested in the social good, and those from minority or under-privileged groups. Working with identity underpins much of my coaching. My coaching focuses on helping people manage career transitions, challenges, and opportunities to excel, create meaningful careers, and develop their emotional intelligence, relational mastery, and systemic leadership.

testimonials

I would like to say I’ve not used the word career in a positive sense for almost 10 years. It had felt a career had deteriorated into a ‘job’. Thank you.

GP discussing career management 

This has made a positive difference in my outlook towards my career, has clarified my goals and priorities in work and made me question some of my assumptions that were holding me back. For this reason, I am very grateful.

Surgical trainee discussing careers

Exam results came out yesterday and I passed!!! Unbelievable. The session we did where we talked about framing things as ‘not yet’ rather than ‘fail’ was super helpful. It helped me transform my approach.

Doctor discussing exams

Attending your sessions is one of the top decisions that I made for myself for self-improvement. I also can’t thank you enough for your generosity to take me in. You have helped me a lot.
