Pre-coaching background

Barclays Graduate Leadership Development Programme, senior HR leadership roles, independent consultant

An ideal client would be

 A smart, driven, ambitious leader who would benefit from showing themselves a little more self-compassion to ensure they can keep ‘winning’ over the long-term

What I don’t like doing

I like a bit of healthy scepticism – and some of the most productive coaching relationships I have built took a little work and time – but out and out cynicism is difficult to engage with


Down-to-earth, warm, friendly, and compassionate, but incisive and able to see beyond the obvious to offer a deeper level of constructive challenge

What makes me different?

Breadth and depth of knowledge and experience; a passion for drawing on everything I know to deliver richer, tailored solutions; a highly conscientious approach to delivery; and a level of curiosity about – and compassion for – human beings that goes beyond ‘the work’, feels vocational, and fuels everything I do.
