As an accredited personal and executive coach, I work mainly, but not exclusively, with professional people under pressure - particularly care managers, vocational assessors, teachers, nurses and other health care workers, and social workers - to work out what needs to change, so that you increase your effectiveness, well-being and resilience, in our changing world. Over the last couple of years I have also focused increasingly on climate issues, working out what we have to do in this desperate situation.

Qualified to degree level, I have a nursing background as an ex general nurse, and 30 years experience in the health and social care field. I was involved in the management of homes for the elderly and later in assessing staff in these areas for professional qualifications. I have undertaken freelance writing in the social care field (details on request).

In 2009 I discovered coaching and have done as much as I could ever since! I have a level 3 qualification in Workplace Coaching, and the level 7 ILM Certificate in Executive Coaching & Mentoring, together with Membership of the Institute of Leadership & Management; I have worked with the Institute of Customer Service (ICS) holding their Solutions Professional Award and acting as an accredited External Assessor with the ICS. I am a certified NLP Practitioner and NLP Coach. In March 2012 I completed Time Line Therapy Practitioner and Hypnotherapist training. And I used my time in the 2020 lockdown to gain Accredited Executive Coach status with the Association for Coaching. I'm accredited to use Harrison Assessments ( as an associate with Synergy Global PTY Ltd), and a number of other tools.

I'm married with three grown up children, I'm semi-retired now which basically means I just do the work I love, which is coaching!
