My approach is to form strong partnerships with my clients and work systematically to their agendas. Through my experience I believe the most fascinating developmental learning happens when trusting the coaching process and the application of coaching tools and skills. This enables clarity and focused solutions to become reality. The intergration of all areas of my clients lives is the aim of our work together. My approach is Person Centred as well as CBT Coaching, Solution focused and evidence based. 

Progress evolves when working in conjunction with a client’s life experience, family history, environment, values, feelings, beliefs,desires and identity. These elements combine to create a powerful force that enables an individual, team or organisation to drive forward toward their desired goals and ongoing development.

I have a private Coaching practice in central London and SE London as well as visiting organisations at their own premises to see their employees. 

My personal interest is in Recovery Coaching (from Addiction, Alcoholism and Codependency).

I specialise in supporting people returning to their workplace to cope with the stress of early recovery.

Coaching sessions are also available via video conferencing (Skype) for international clients.
