Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings
Sunward I’ve climbed and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds – and done a hundred things

John Gillespie Magee: High Flight (An Airman’s Ecstasy)


How can I help?

I coach because I love helping my clients create happier, easier and more fulfilling lives.

I truly believe that overwhelm, stress, frustration and unhealthy habits are the inevitable result of becoming disconnected from ourselves – what we really want, what matters most to us and what we need to thrive.

In my work, I help my clients rediscover those things, and find ways to achieve them, dealing one by one with the obstacles in their way.

Qualifications and experience

I have been coaching since 2003, both with individual clients and in my work in learning and organisational development in the City of London.

I hold a Diploma in Coaching and Behavioural Change from Henley Business School and am a Certified Life Coach (Coach University).  I am also a trained NLP Practitioner (ITS training) and qualified and experienced personal trainer (NASM level 3) .

How I coach

I love learning about my clients as people and coach mainly using conversation and intuition, rather than analysis/questionnaires.

My clients tell me I am open, flexible, curious and supportive.   I think one of my strengths is organising complicated thoughts, to help my clients get clearer about what they want.  That’s one of the reasons why I really like working with overwhelmed people.

My rates for individual coaching are £100 per hour, which includes email support around sessions, if needed.  I coach both on the phone and in person in central Brighton, England.

I recommend a first session of up to two hours, which, for many of my clients, is all that they need to get clear about what they want.  However, I am happy to tailor coaching sessions to suit you and your needs.
