Coaching & Mentoring

Coaching and mentoring with me can give you the confidence you need  to take you to the next level

Visualise this: you’re walking into a room full of people, you’re wearing your favourite outfit, brimming with confidence, and feeling your absolute best self.


That’s the feeling I’m going to help you create.

Coaching is a transformative one to one process that helps you acquire the knowledge, skills and strategies needed to perform effectively and confidently in your professional role and personal life. I am trained at Level 7 Coaching and Mentoring, Institute of Leadership and Management

As your coach and/or mentor, I will use a variety of techniques including active listening and questioning so you can prioritise with ease and deal with challenges effectively. Let me guide you to achieve your goals through a bespoke programme designed to target your specific needs. I can help you to fully understand your own worth, to realise your true talents and give you a toolbox of skills to help you succeed in your current role or the encouragement to make the first steps to promotion. 


As an experienced senior leader, I understand the pressures associated with leading teams in large organisations. I coach and mentor leaders at a strategic level as well as assisting those at the very start of or at a crossroads in their careers, indeed I have nurtured many a rookie to take their first tentative steps to    promotion.


As well as coaching and mentoring, I also deliver organisational leadership team workshops in resilience building and how to be kind to yourself in highly stressful situations, which should resonate in the current climate.

I can help you learn how to face your demons and get rid of imposter syndrome once and for all! With nearly thirty years in education leadership, I also offer leader mentoring and consultancy, just get in touch to find out more.

Wherever you're at in your role, give me a call to book a free 30 minute consultation or complete the enquiry form below with any queries you might have. I'm here to help.


Be the change you want to see



Let's have a coffee and a chat! 

I offer the following in coaching and mentoring:

How I work

I currently work via Zoom when meeting in-person is not possible. When it becomes safe to do so, meetings take place face-to-face in my home office in Manchester or at a location of your choice. I offer a free 15-30 minute phone call so that you can tell me a little bit about why you are looking for coaching support and for you to get a better idea of who I am and how I work. 

My appointment times run from 09.00 to 16.30, although I try to be flexible whenever possible. Sessions are typically a couple of weeks apart or at longer intervals as we progress. 

Leadership training and mentoring is also available virtually until it is safe to deliver on-site. 

As a first-time client, I would be delighted to offer you a 60-minute session for £90. This gives you a chance to see if coaching is really for you and if you want to continue working with me. Subsequent sessions are 90 minutes long and cost £135 per session. Calls or emails between sessions are welcome at no extra charge. I also offer coaching packages in blocks of 6, 9 and 12 sessions at increasingly discounted rates. Please contact me for details.

If you have any questions please complete the enquiry form below with no obligation to see if coaching might be what you are looking for, and/or if you are interested in a style edit, head to my personal styling page for more information.

Choose from the bulleted list above and get in touch if you'd like to discuss something more bespoke. I'm happy to help.
