Certified Coach & Mental Health First Aider
My philosophy is a simple one. Helping one person might not change the world, but it could change the world for one person.
I studied with The Centre for Coaching at The British Psychological Society in London, and I am a Member of The Association for Coaching and also an Affiliate Member of the International Society for Coaching Psychology.
In addition to my Certificate in Coaching, I have also completed a Primary Certificate in Health & Wellbeing and am a Mental Health First Aider. I am also an RFU Level 2 Rugby Coach.
In the past, I have worked in a management capacity for a range of organisations, from large independently owned companies to large corporations, covering Account Management, Sales & Business Development, Business Analyst work and Project Management.
Over the years I developed a real passion for helping others, initially through my work and subsequently through coaching rugby to both boys
and girls, and voluntary work.
In a work capacity I enjoyed helping individuals in my team to achieve all that they were capable of and building relationships with customers and suppliers built on honesty & integrity.
Through rugby coaching I realised that my pride and satisfaction was not around winning matches or tournaments but in developing a players confidence, self-belief and enjoyment.
Having gone through my own challenges with depression & anxiety, and some challenges involving my children, I found Coaching helped me get back on track, regain my sense of purpose and understand where best to focus my energy.
I'm passionate about helping others get to where they want to be and believe in taking a compassionate and non-judgmental approach in all aspects of life.
