I am an Executive Leadership Coach, trained through Accomplishment Coaching, and accredited by the International Coach Federation. I work with high performers to help them be better, lead more powerfully, and achieve even more.
My clients are ambitious leaders who are already successful, committed to their own growth, and aware that by partnering with a coach they can create more, faster than they can on their own. I work with people who want to play big, to go for transformation rather than incremental change, and who are willing and committed to discovering what's possible when they go beyond what's comfortable.
My coaching style is a potent mix of challenge, encouragement, empathy and humour. I also believe in being intentional - everywhere: reflecting on every aspect of how we show up, communicate, spend our time and build relationships in order to set ourselves up to be successful.
Prior to becoming a coach, I had a successful 15 year career in finance, in the City of London, and in management consulting. I have worked in both small companies and global multinational organisations. Most recently, I led the consulting practice in a specialist natural gas and LNG management consulting firm in London. It was through my own experience of coaching that I came to see its transformative potential, and took the step out of my former career to set up my own coaching business.
I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with the International Coach Federation, and certified personal effectiveness trainer with FranklinCovey. I graduated from the University of Cambridge, with an MA in Geography and an MBA from the Judge Business School. While at University I am proud to have raced for Cambridge in the University Boat Race.
I live in Brixton, south London. When I'm not coaching, I still love to stay active (though I'm retired from rowing these days!), and can usually be found out in the gym, working on my strongman (woman?) moves, or on the sofa working my way through a collection of books larger than I'll ever get round to reading.
