I moved into coaching full time in 2016 after using my coaching and mentoring skills for 6 years with leaders and service managers in Children’s Services as a Children’s Services Consultant and sector specialist with the Centre for Excellence and Outcomes (C4EO). During this time I also took my Level 5 Coaching Certificate and developed my peer mentoring skills through an online community of sober women.

Before that I was a project and service development manager in Children’s Services for 10 years, and loved working in partnership with a wide range of individuals and agencies, using everyone’s skills and experience to achieve common visions and goals.


In 2015 I successfully completed my ILM Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring in Management with Optimising Coaching.

I have recently returned to training with Optimising in order to complete an ILM Level 5 Diploma, which will support my independent coaching practice.


I have received regular supervision for the last 5 years, and been a regular contributor to CPD events run by my training provider during that time.

I have recently joined The 3 Shires Coaching Group and look forward to playing an active role in CPD meetings and events.
