The no-obligation coaching consultation

I believe that all coaching should begin with a NO OBLIGATION face-to-face coaching consultation so this is the first step in all my services. I introduce coaching and you tell me about your needs, hopes, aspirations and knowledge of coaching. All in confidence of course.

The quality of the relationship between you and your coach is important to the success of the coaching programme.

If, after chatting, we think we can work well together and meet each other's expectations, then we'll start looking at your anticipated coaching programme.

This includes the purpose of the coaching, outcome measures, anticipated location and frequency of our meetings, confidentiality, responsibilities, payment method, cancellation policy, between session support, how to address any arising issues and service evaluation.

My Biography

At 29, I left retail management and started studying for a BSc Honours in Psychology. Three years later, I gained a First and across the next few years, a Post Graduate Certificate in Mental Health, Certificate in Occupational Testing, Certificate in Coaching (approved by the British Psychological Society) and MSc in Occupational Psychology.

My coaching experience includes working with clients and/or staff within NHS Primary Care, Rethink Mental Illness, Expanding Horizons, Macmillan Cancer Support and Shaw Trust. For 4 years, I was a Work Psychologist in the Wales Psychology Service at Jobcentre Plus.

My clients' goals and action plans have ranged from condition management and life management to finding, sustaining and/or succeeding in the workplace.

I've attended Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioural, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness and NLP training courses. I enjoy keeping up to date with new and evolving coaching and Positive Psychology techniques, have bi-monthly 1-1 coaching supervision and attend the BPS SGCP Peer Practice group in Bristol. I also evaluate my services on an ongoing basis.

Not all but many of my clients have been people managing anxiety, depression, a physical health condition/disability or a specific learning difficulty (i.e. Dyslexia) alongside life and work.

I look forward to meeting you!

I'm a member of The British Psychological Society's (BPS) Division in Occupational Psychology, the BPS Special Group in Coaching Psychology (SGCP), The Association for Coaching, Fresh Air Fridays Facilitators and  I hold Professional Indemnity Insurance.
