I work with charities, social enterprises and organisations committed to their social responsibility to support the development and mental well-being of their employees and volunteers. I have specific expertise in International Development and a strong empathy towards organisations focused on people empowerment, human rights, poverty reduction and social and mental well-being.

​I help the individual maximise their professional and personal potential in a sustainable and personally satisfying way that benefits both the organisation and the individual.

​In my coaching I draw on my leadership and professional experience of the charity sector. I use a ‘Transformational Coaching’ approach which recognises that our values and personal beliefs affect our actions and behaviours. I help my clients gain a powerful understanding of how they view themselves and their world, and the impact this has on their actions and ability to move forward in a satisfactory way.

​I work with clients on a one to one basis or in groups. I provide an honest, non-judgmental and confidential space for them to talk, reflect, refocus and come up with personal solutions to overcome barriers. I motivate and challenge them to make personal commitments to actualise the changes they identify.

​Acknowledging that each of my clients are unique, my coaching is tailored specifically to them drawing on appropriate coaching techniques and approaches. I offer a free Discovery Consultation to all potential clients to discuss the outcomes they would like from the coaching. This gives them the opportunity to understand more about coaching, my specific approach, and what to expect working with me.

Through 1 to 1 coaching ​I have supported organisational clients on:

  • Developing leadership and assertiveness skills and style.

  • Impostor syndrome, confidence and self-doubt challenges.

  • Managing professional relationships.

  • Defining and following a career progression plan.

  • Managing the transition into a more senior role.

  • Unlocking a “stuck” feeling that is hindering them progressing in the way they want.

  • Confidence and adjustment returning to work post maternity or parental leave, or other career break.

  • Exploring a satisfactory work- life balance.


Group Coaching programmes


My Group Coaching provides a platform for shared support amongst those experiencing similar challenges or themes. It enables a mutual understanding of their options, a healthy realisation that they are not alone, and a network of support that can help alleviate anxiety and concern, allowing them to focus on succeeding at work while maintaining the balance and mindset they need in other areas of their life. These are very much tailored to the organisation and the individuals' specific needs so please contact me to discuss.

Charity Coaches Collective

As well as working independently with organisations,  I also work in collaboration with other coaches who have charity expertise and are dedicated to supporting this sector. This has enabled us to offer broader and more holistic programmes of coaching and support. Please contact me to discuss this further.

Supporting working parents 


Recognising the specific and unique emotional, logistical and psychological challenges experienced by working parents, I have a specific focus working with organisations to support and empower the parents amongst their staff and volunteers. 

Benefits to the organisation of this support:

  • Happy, confident staff who feel supported and understood, not judged and penalised - enabling them to get on with their jobs in an effective and efficient manner.

  • Increased productivity: Being able to manage life’s priorities and commitments in a healthy and agile way means a clearer, undistracted, less anxious focus on work commitments.

  • Committed, engaged and loyal staff who aspire to grow and develop within the organisation.

  • Retention of talented women - particularly at a senior level - who can drive forward the vision of the organisation.

  • An embedded culture of understanding and support, and a reputation for being a great place to work - therefore attracting even more talent and loyalty.
