1:1 Coaching and Team Coaching

Throughout my career I’ve held several leadership positions in large and complex organisations, so I understand what it feels like to lead and manage amid the significant challenges of today’s organisational life.

And, as a human being,  I have also needed and benefited from some dedicated, safe, impartial and confidential time to make sense of what’s happening to me or inside me –  space to think and feel, space to hear myself think out loud.

Whether working 1:1 or with an intact team, I enable you to:

  • identify what’s really going on so that you gain new perspective or insight
  • work out what you want or need
  • find ways to speak out what you currently feel you can’t
  • affirm what’s already working well and what sustains and resources you
  • create a plan of actions and experiments so that you also learn from doing
  • make a shift towards a different or a better way of doing things

And coaching really works. Maybe it’s to enable a specific behavioural change focused on a particular goal.  Or maybe it’s more exploratory and developmental. Or – and this is a big part of the coaching I do currently – it’s to simply provide you with space to breathe and try to make sense of  what’s happening around you.  Whatever the focus, I  have seen coaching deliver meaningful and lasting change time and time again.

My work is informed by many things.  I take an integrated approach, drawing on a range of disciplines from psychodynamic and humanistic philosophies to gestalt, mindfulness and shadow work.  I use MBTI and FIRO-B when the time feels right.  

I am accredited with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and I draw on their coaching competencies and also work with Nancy Kline’s Thinking Environment principles.

I work with a coaching supervisor.
