My story (cont)

1-2-1 Coaching

While working on a personal  level with clients I connect them to their best selves through tried and tested psychological techniques. We all benefit from talking through our worries and life challenges in a compassionate, warm and safe space. I create this for all who come to me.  I love seeing them become more self accepting and better equipped to overcome their barriers to living they life they want & then achieving their goals.  I have many clients who come with specific health concerns such as depression, anxiety, anxiety attacks and low self esteem. It’s amazing to watch them start making better more positive lifestyle choices.

Parent Coaching

Parental burnout is a recognised experience and more parents are experiencing this with the never ending demands of life these days. Being a mum to two boys has been so much more challenging than I expected. While I absolutely love being a parent, I’m kept on my toes developing as a parent! My journey as Parenting Course Facilitator started in January of 2016 when I attended a course myself. The knowledge and experience gained during this course led me to become a course leader with the care for the family organisation. I quickly learned that I had a passion for this work and I became a family friend volunteer at Home-start. Fast forward to 2017 when I qualified as a Parenting Course Facilitator and I haven’t looked back. I love learning from, sharing my strategies and ideas with other parents and supporting them within this ever changing role. 

 

Academic Coaching

I am a Psychology lecturer specialising in A level teaching. With over 20 years experience working in education I have areas of expertise ranging from GCSE to Higher Education learning, including Teacher training and PGCE courses.  I have taken on the role of A level examiner for the past 15 years which ensure that I guide my students  in the best exam strategies as well as specific exam techniques.  I work with different secondary schools to embed stringer exam confidence in their students and build effective exam skills. This is offered in group workshops or 1-2-1. I have worked with several primary schools with parts of the PHSE curriculum and helped to enhance student emotional wellbeing support across all year groups.

NLP Coaching

I am a qualified NLP and life coach which I use to full advantage within all areas of my career.  I believe we all deserve to be comfortable celebrating ourselves and the things which make us unique. By recognising this, it has the positive effect of helping us to achieve more and enhances our lives and the lives of those around us.
