    How I work

    The coaching I provide is person-centred. It is led by the individual and adapts to the style and preferences of the individual. I sometimes use psychometric tools such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or Will Schutz’s Human Elements. I can introduce the person I am coaching to frameworks and models that may be useful in their situation. I act as a sounding board and the main focus is on deep listening and intelligent questioning to enable individuals to reach their own insights leading to appropriate action. While face-to-face meetings are generally most effective and satisfying, I also provide telephone, Skype and online coaching. I provide team and group coaching as well as individual coaching.


    I have coached people of all levels in large corporate organisations such as BT, Barclays Bank, BAE Systems – from directors through to support staff in different functional areas, from finance through to IT to sales, marketing, engineering, legal etc. I’ve also coached people in a range of roles working in central and local government and the NHS. I have extensive current experience coaching people in education and supporting the well-being and resilience of head teachers and their teams through individual and group coaching. Feedback over the years has been enthusiastic and the large part of my work is secured through personal contacts and word-of-mouth recommendations. I provide coaching, action learning facilitation, and work consultancy for clergy within the Church of England.
