So, you’re interested in coaching and want to know if I’m the right coach for you.  Read on, because I might just help you change your life.  Here’s why you should work with me.

My experiences gave me the key coaching skills to help you succeed

In the face of adversity, I’ve overcome a difficult start in life. When I was 16 I found myself homeless with no support system which was unfortunate but it gave me skills I couldn’t learn elsewhere.  I realised I could choose my response for a better life.  By being inquisitive about my situation rather than reacting I developed the resilience I now foster in other people.  I also developed a great sense of empathy for others going through tough times.

Having felt vulnerable myself, I know the importance of creating a safe place during coaching.  Here we can explore feelings, ideas and goals more comfortably.  I may use humour to bring the energy up or we may feel the need to really go there and explore more intense feelings.  Either way expect to really get to the heart of the matter.

I’ve met many people from all walks of life so I’m non-judgemental and nothing surprises me.  During sessions I value, support and accept you for who you are and where you are in life.  I’m open-minded and everything you say during sessions is valid.

Through commitment and determination, I’ve created a life I love.  I can’t solve your problems, but I can empower you to gain a different perspective and transform your life.

Im passionate about coaching

During over 10 years of coaching I’ve unlocked the potential in others by giving them permission to truly be themselves and lead a better life.

I’ve felt disheartened in my own life, lost even.  For ten years, I worked in financial services and found the corporate world wasn’t for me.  Discovering my calling changed everything.  I wanted to help people overcome adversity like I had, and I started to do this as a coach.

Training and accreditation with the ICF helped to demonstrate my commitment to coaching.  During the process, my understanding of people and their situations felt natural and not like work.

I love the flexibility of coaching; shaping sessions to suit individual client’s needs.  Overall I make it fun, rewarding and supportive with enough challenge to promote change.

My aim is to help you gain clarity by the end of sessions, gain back control, feel different about life and happier, whatever that means to you.

My practice is ethical and I’m committed to strict confidentiality and anonymity.

I’m lucky to work in a field I love and am passionate about the process.  What are you passionate about?  What does your ideal life look like?  I’m committed to helping you get there.

I believe in coaching so much you can use a free 30-minute sample session to decide if it’s right for you.  It could be a waste of 30 minutes of your time, or it could just change your life.

I work with people of all ages, from all walks of life

I’ve worked with people with CEO’s, principals of colleges, business owners, people with disabilities, brain injuries, high risk offenders and most people in between.  There is no judgement as the situation is unique to the individual.

Whether you’re a business owner who needs a confidence boost or a busy parent balancing childcare and your career, I can help you get things back on track.

Childhood and the teenage years can be a difficult time.  I work with young people and their parents to navigate it in the best possible way.

Recently I’ve enjoyed working with businesses and organisations to help individual members of staff to develop resilience and empower them to be the best they can at work to achieve shared goals.

Whoever you are, a commitment to coaching will restore balance and help you transform your life, even during the toughest of times.

Im committed to personal growth and I can help you grow too

The decisions I’ve made have led me to an exceptional life as a qualified and experienced coach.  Even though I’m loving every minute, I continue to grow and seek out new experiences and goals to achieve.

I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world for a year, gaining valuable life experience and learning about different people and cultures.  While working full time I got my degree and became a fellow of the school for social entrepreneurs and have fulfilled my dream of being a writer by publishing a book about my travels and what is possible when you dare to dream, along with two children’s books.  Recently I set up a social enterprise, Embrace PFC CIC, so I could honour my commitment to working with people in the community who can’t afford life-changing support.  Social change is part of the legacy I want to leave behind.

Don’t get me wrong, life can still be tough, but I now have a toolkit to deal with the challenges when they come and you can too.

I’m constantly developing my identity and skill set as a coach.  Over the past ten years I’ve worked hard on my practice to be as professional, skilled and authentic as possible.

Hopefully you can see that the successes in my life are not down to luck but enthusiasm, passion, motivation and turning adversity into something positive. I’ve chosen how I want my life to be and so can you. It’s been a lot of hard work, but I don’t regret it for one minute. I can’t wait to work with you on making your dream life a reality.
