A story of passion for people and success
Ask me about my profession, and I’ll reply that I’m an Executive Coach, a Performance Psychologist, an Accredited Psychotherapist and a Consultative Supervisor.
But – ask me about why I’m those things, and this will be my answer -
I’m an enthusiastic, energetic and vibrant professional with a passion for people. But I’m not just a driven professional. I’m also personable and empathetic. I have an enormous curiosity about people – about what makes them tick, what makes them think the way they do and what makes them ‘get in the way of themselves’ - holding them back from achieving their potential.
RECOGNISING AND DEVELOPING UNIQUE POTENTIAL
I recognise that we are all individuals – each of us has our strengths, and each of us has our own challenges. My passion is to identify those strengths and challenges and to develop the potential that undoubtedly lies within each one of us.
But of course, unique individuals make unique teams. I also use my passion and energy to identify the dynamics within teams – to spot where these can be enhanced, and all-round performance improved.
My passion for people isn’t restricted to the workplace. I put just as much energy and commitment into my family and social life.
But, of course, although it’s a vital ingredient to success in almost any walk of life, passion alone isn’t enough. I back up my energy and enthusiasm with
a Degree in Psychology
a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy
a Post-graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy
a Post-graduate Diploma in Consultative Supervision
I’m also accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
WIDE AND VARIED EXPERIENCE AS AN EXECUTIVE COACH
I’ve spent 10 years working with professional athletes - predominantly professional footballers and rugby players. The footballers and athletes I work with perform at the highest levels of sport, internationally and in the English Premier League.
In recent years I have also coached high-performing senior executives, business owners and business leaders. These clients come from across the globe - the UK, America, Australia and Asia.
But my work isn’t restricted to Executive Coaching. I also attend regularly as a keynote speaker for companies such as Hewlett Packard, Nestlé, Citibank and MBDA.
The way I work as an Executive Coach is unique. It’s an individual approach that closely reflects my personality, qualifications and experience.
When I coach, I bring everything I’ve learned from the fields of psychology and psychotherapy. I combine this with my experience of working with high-performing athletes and business people in high-pressure environments.
My work begins by asking the question ‘why?’ -
Why are people not accessing their potential?
Why are they holding themselves back?
Why have they become frustrated by their perceived lack of achievement?
Every moment I spend with my clients is a focused moment and comes with a clear sense of direction. This focus is always directed towards how the client thinks, how they feel and how they behave. The result? Clients achieve their goals far more readily than they had dreamed possible.
My approach is not to tell clients what they could do or what they should do. Instead, I find out what they want to do and need to do in order to become unstuck and to achieve success. I ask, and I listen. I ask the right questions, which invariably unlock the right answers. From this, we work out the strategies and techniques that clients can apply to their professional and personal goals.
