About Me...

Coach & People Development Specialist

Introduction

I am a versatile Coach with the ability to coach across Executive, Business & Career scenarios by utilising my varied breadth of life & career experiences. I am a critical thinking partner, sounding board and cheerleader helping you to address your development needs and realise your full potential. Additionally, I am able to also incorporate NLP tools & techniques into my coaching practice, including NLP Breakthrough Days to eliminate negative emotions and self-limiting beliefs.

Typical Clients

I do not have a niche per se, although my career experience is predominately Human Resources largely supporting senior leadership teams, people managers and early leaders within the Sales, Sales Operations, Marketing, Finance & IT functions across various different sectors. I typically work, although not exclusively, with female professional women who are battling with self-limiting beliefs, imposter syndrome and/or confidence.

My Coaching style

My coaching style is personable, appropriately challenging (encouraging you out of your comfort zone), supportive and fun. I use a strengths-based approach, with positive psychology, values-led and often focused on mindset. I also like to bring creativity into my practice, when appropriate. Whilst we will always define what success looks like for you, the work will be emergent as we continually focus on your growth and making a difference.

What you can expect

Working with me you can be assured of professionalism, honesty and integrity. I will provide a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space for you.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

I proactively partake in a variety of development activities, including regular coaching supervision, to ensure that my coaching practice remains client-focused, ethical, informed & effective.

Credentials

I am a qualified Coach & member of the Association for Coaching, Master Practitioner of NLP, Time Line Therapy & Hypnosis and a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD.

Background

I have always been passionate about working with and developing people which is why I naturally fell into Human Resources. I have worked in corporate, partnership & private equity companies across various industries and countries which has enabled me to develop invaluable breadth and depth of experience. I have particularly enjoyed working as a business partner and developing key organisational talent & leadership development initiatives.

In my latter HR career I specialised in talent management, leadership development, coaching, mentoring & NLP which resulted in me setting up Talenta in 2019 so as to focus on helping individuals to find their confidence, recognise their worth and reach their full potential.
