Executive Coaching

I work across all sectors providing coaching to clients in IT, professional services, food, engineering, manufacturing, sport, and hospitality. I have experience in coaching programmes with School Principals through Inspire and the HSC Leadership Centre. 

Specialism includes motivating self and others, leadership, workplace conflict, creating positive and productive workplaces, business strategy, change management, budgetary controls, team collaboration and career development.

After sessions, coachees report to be more motivated, energised, with clarity gained on their role, strategic direction, and purpose, and work with more confidence!

As a trained mediator and investigator, I have vast work experience in dealing with complex and difficult work relationships and use these skills in all my coaching practices. 

In each session coachees are provided with thinking and development time, allowing each session to be a natural and safe space to learn.

I have trained as an executive coach through AOEC obtaining my Practitioner Diploma in 2013, and International Systemic Team Coaching Certificate in 2019.  My CPD includes Transactional Analysis, Building Leaders’ Resilience, Coaching Leaders in Mid-Life Transition, Neuroscience and the Journey to Coaching Mastery, Conflict Management, and the Journey to Coaching Mastery, and Resilience. 

Coaching can be provided in 3, 6 or 12 month programmes.

Career Coaching

I have been providing career support and advice over the last 25 years, having trained as a career coach and with extensive experience in assessment tools, interviewing techniques, I know how to present a suitable applicant and interviewee and be successful in this process.

For those setting up in business or currently own a business, I work closely with coachees – providing tools and techniques to develop a business plan, the ‘how-to’ of increasing your client base and creating a profitable, successful business with reduced stress. 

I will challenge self-limiting thoughts, clients in return respond with increased self-confidence, motivation, and self-awareness. Coachees also report developing positive and effective working relationships with their teams, work colleagues and clients!

Investigation Services

Operating across all sectors I am a professionally trained investigator with vast experience in the completion of employee investigations. To add to my experience in this area, I have completed the Advanced Professional Certificate in Investigative Practice accredited through Pearson BTEC Level 7. 

Investigations commence on completion of Terms of Reference, from the commissioner with a plan of action, all persons involved are interviewed in a highly professional manner and are provided an opportunity to be heard by a neutral party, who is proficient and thorough in their investigative practice and report writing. 

I am experienced in completing investigations within the private sector,  HSC and Education sector.
