During my 50+ years I’ve clearly experienced a lot! In terms of my life coaching, the biggest influences have been a lifelong fascination with nutrition and how to use this to help people adopt the most appropriate eating plans. A Type 2 diabetic, I am passionate about helping people to confront the illness head on and develop their own way of defeating the condition rather than letting it defeat them.
My mission is to provide results-driven, down-to-earth coaching and training to those who need it, at an affordable price.
My vision is to see everyone being offered coaching as a matter of course – not just senior managers.
I value: loyalty, honesty, fairness, and humour – and taking personal responsibility.
So, what can I do for you? Let’s see…
Coaching is my first love. I keep quiet and listen, and my clients get to work out their next steps in a safe environment where they’re in control. But, I’ll challenge and encourage them, and I’ll ask: “What’s next?” – it’s not about off-loading, but about getting things done. I’ll help them plan so that they can get where they want to go.
Executive – Career – Type 2 Diabetes – Job Seekers
I’ve been a professional trainer for decades. I’ve worked at the front line in the public and charity sectors, so I believe in uncomplicated lessons that students can put straight into action.
Soft Skills – Time Management – Performance Management
Small groups are brilliant! It’s great to see people work together through choice rather than necessity. I let loose people to voice their issues, ideas, anger or excitement – all in a safe and confidential space.
Group work – Action Learning – Reflective Practice – Mediation
I’ve seen so many ideas fail because the front line or the customer doesn’t understand what’s changed. I’m excited by producing clear, short and helpful documents that get the message across.
Policies & Procedures – Handbooks – Leaflets – Reports – Business Cases – Letters
Based in Woking, Surrey, I am happy to travel – by train – for half or full day sessions of training delivery and group facilitation.
I do most of my coaching via video call. Document writing is done from my home office, although I am happy to meet up with those for whom I’ll be working.
