Pulteney Bridge, Bath, United Kingdom
I’m passionate about working with people and finding ways to make their lives happier in both their professional and personal lives.
I believe a coaching relationship should work both ways. If it is to be truly successful, we should know a little about each other to decide if we share similar values and would be a ‘good fit’ to work together.
I live in the beautiful city of Bath in the United Kingdom. However, as far as coaching is concerned geography is no longer a limit.
Using Zoom or Microsoft Teams I regularly work with people across Europe and North America. I’m flexible with my schedule and will meet you where you are.
I’ve achieved success working as a senior leader in a number of companies, worked with venture capitalists, established technical agile teams both here in the UK and off-shore in Jaipur, India; built companies up and sold them on and worked on the development of many complex IT platforms in financial services and central government organisations.
I’ve had many ups and downs in my professional life. I’ve suffered from imposter syndrome, lack of motivation and confidence and procrastinated a lot. At one time or another I may have experienced some of the challenges you face now. Fortunately I’ve had people around me that have supported and coached me to success.
I’ve realised that my passion lies with helping people and teams achieve sustainable working practices, boost their confidence and find ways to achieve a healthy work life balance. This ultimately helps people be happier, be more creative and focus on the delivery of value in safe to experiment environments. Happier people in the work place helps create resilient and high performing teams; I’m here to support you achieve this too.
My coaching principles align with the five Ericksonian principles. With these guiding principles I respect each person I work with as a resourceful, well-meaning human being.
I consider personal and professional development to be really important. I read…a lot, follow blogs, watch videos and attend training courses regularly to continually develop my understanding of the many different ways I’m able to support people.
I’ve spent many years supporting teams and organisations adopt sustainable and agile ways of working; for me, professional coaching has been a natural progression to help empower and motivate individuals in autonomous teams.
