Being a Coach and Mentor I support on a one to one basis, work with Couples/families and support organisations and companies with employee/client coaching. I am passionate about helping people reach their full potential and nothing pleases me more than to see people develop and grow before my eyes!
I also offer one off (or continuing) support Self Employed individuals who might need a confidential space in which to explore their business goals, how they feel about their business/life balance and explore future ventures and opportunities.
I am extremely lucky in that I support and motivate people and couples to move forward and make changes to their lives, reach their goals and realise their aspirations. I support them to develop life plans and practical strategies that can support them for the rest of their lives.
I Currently work part time for Telford Mind, this compliments my private practice perfectly and affords me the opportunity to work in a community setting. Prior to this ,I worked for many years in a Community Mental Health Team as a qualified practitioner; working with individuals, their partners and in some cases their families all with differing circumstances, problems and issues requiring a unique and personalised approach. Often supporting them through difficult times, while most importantly, enabling them to gain control of their lives and aspirations.
My experience in practice informs me well and equipped me with knowledge about people, how they behave, how they react and above all how they can improve and expand belief in themselves and their capabilities.
My communication coaching includes work with couples, it allows them to gain a greater understanding of their combined relationship needs. It also enables them to maintain positive communication skills that equip them for the rest of their lives. This extends to the work place as I support companies and organisations with individual employee or client coaching.
I am married, have 2 sons and have a passion for the outdoors. I love walking, rear my own chickens and pride myself on being practical, down to earth and most importantly…..approachable.
