Coaching is a journey towards a more fulfilling personal and professional life.
I coach people who want to make a positive difference in the world. I support them navigating change within and around them.
We are constantly evolving and adapting to change. While we cannot control external circumstances, we can choose how we respond to them and direct how we grow through life.
Coaching is a conversation with a purpose.
Coaching invites you to engage in a reflective, thought-provoking and creative process so that you can gain clarity, reach your goals and find solutions that are right for you and based on your strengths and talents.
During our coaching conversations I will support, encourage and challenge you every step of the way. My approach is results-oriented, without telling you what to do or how to be.
Together, we will work on finding your own solutions and path in the world.
I offer professional and personal development coaching services.
I coach on issues of which I have first-hand experience to ensure a strong relationship with my clients.

I am a Certified Professional Coach. I hold a UK Coaching and Mentoring Certificate from the Institute for Leadership and Management and a Professional Coaching Certificate from the French School of Coaching EFC/MHD (RNCP). I am affiliated to the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC-UK Chapter).
Coaching was the natural next step from my previous professions: seven years in teaching and twenty years in consulting in education and international development with the United Nations, development agencies and Non-Governmental Organisations.
All my professional roles have been about supporting individuals or teams on a journey of learning and change, a journey from intention to action, to results, to meaning and purpose.
My approach is person-centred. I do not offer set programmes, but tailor-made coaching suited to your own needs and availability.
You want to change, you are at a crossroads in your personal or professional life or you are looking for purpose. You are questioning yourself, or you are simply curious about yourself and what you could be capable of? Get in touch through the application form to book a free-of-charge initial conversation.
In our first conversation we will discuss your needs to ensure that the coaching I provide can respond to them. You will experience what a coaching conversation is, and we will discuss your motivation and the coaching process.
My approach to coaching is based on questioning and proven tools and techniques such as Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Transactional Analysis and other creative and personal development methods. The coaching sessions support you to gradually experiment with new skills and behaviour that will enable you to reach your goal.
The journey ends with a wrap-up session. This is a time for reflecting on your progress and identifying how the journey has nourished and strengthened you. This is an opportunity to learn lessons and think about the new horizons you would like to explore.
