It isn’t a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for.

Coaching & Counselling Experience

  • I spent 17 years in blue-chip multi-nationals - most as a manager of people & projects, which taught me a great deal about why people sometimes fail, and how to help them succeed. I combine this experience with my coaching skills in the service of my clients.
  • During three years as a freelance lecturer, I learned a lot about relating to and helping people from all walks of life, and I also learned what a pleasure that was. This experience helped me find my vocation in life coaching.
  • I have taught coaching to coaching academy graduates; I was an inaugural member of The Coaching Academy's inner circle, and one of only seven members of it's executive committee - overseeing the ethics of coaching in the UK.
  • Since graduating with distinctions in the theory and practice of coaching, from the coaching academy in January of 2004, I have coached a large number of clients presenting disparate coaching challenges.

Personal History

I was born in 1959. I have an honours degree in computing and electronics.

My first career was in IT and IT management, where I became European IT Manager for an account of the General Motors financing company - GMAC. Doing a little coaching on my own life, I moved away from corporate existence in 1997.

After that I started my own online E-Commerce business, and one of the websites involved is now, we believe, the largest of its kind in the world.

I spent three years as a part-time freelance lecturer at Bedford College - teaching Business IT and web page design.

These days I consult on business management and business coaching and I run my own coaching business.

How Can I Help You?

I have lots of real-world experience spanning 20 years as a manager and teacher which I can use to help you in your situation.

I use a cognitive approach to coaching, dealing with the world the way it is - not the way we wished it were. But I also know how important our thinking is; the world we live in is not "out there" but created between our ears. I can help you to ensure that your view of the world and your place within it are accurate. When that's in place, we can move forward. I'll keep you positive, resourceful and focussed.

I use techniques from a variety of sources: my corporate experience, lecturing, cognitive coach training, neuro-linguistic programming and ad hoc techniques developed specifically for you and your situation. My quirky sense of humour is more often a help than a hindrance. Allegedly

You can read more than you probably want to about me and my approach to coaching via the navigation area.


I am as comfortable in corporate coaching, coaching small business owners, and work/life balance as I am with housewives struggling with self-esteem or big ambiitions, partners trying to make their relationship work, or single mothers trying to get back into work. I'm confident I can help you with your challenge, but our intiial phone consultation would be the place to find out for sure..


Here are a few client testimonials.

I've really enjoyed talking to you - it's been fantastic.

- Carol

... just to say thank you for your help over the past months. It has been very useful for me with regard to try to deal with my business and be more assertive. Personally it has also made some thought processes more clear. It has been good to talk to one of the opposite sex as it has given me a different view on my life than what I normally get from my girl friends.

- Anne

Prompt, intuitive, cutting through the crap to help me see my real issues, providing options to help me through difficult times, helping me see that I have a lot to offer and that I should prioritize my goals into short, medium and long.

Mary F.

You made me confront some situations which I probably would have avoided.
I think your service is very efficient. Your website is great and gives lots of information. The replies to my e-mails were prompt.

- Angelika [E-Coaching client]

It's good to know that you're there.

- Peter

[We had] great rapport enjoyed talking to you. You are a good coach and have a great relaxing style.

- Carol
