Career Coaching

A 15-year corporate background in leadership positions and ten years' coaching experience gives me a unique background and perspective to support you with your career or life goals.

I continue to undertake research in my field and I have completed a MSc in Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology.

How I can help you:


Career transition and progression, interpersonal challenges, priority management and emotional management at work.


Balance is a myth, let’s figure out the optimal configuration for you!

Your Longer
Term Vision

Building your longer term vision and signature career identity online and offline.

Challenges With
Your Board/ Teams

Taking a systems-based approach to influencing those that matter

Focus on

All aspects of wellbeing, ranging from physical health to psychological wellbeing and particularly, digital wellbeing


This includes your own way of being at work.

How it works

I'll either ask you to complete an optional strengths questionnaire. You are welcome to share any other personality assessments you have already completed, as I am certified and experienced in a range of assessments, including MBTI, NEO, Hogan, Strengths-Finder.

Question 1

What do you want to get out of the session?


Question 2

How important is this to you on a scale of 1-10? (If not very, it may not be the right topic to coach on.)

Question 3

If this coaching were to prove really worthwhile for you, what would be happening (in your work, life etc) that is not happening at present?

What clients think

Turning dreams into reality: 

“It’s funny, because about a month ago I came over the email you sent me when we were having our sessions and I read through it. Most of what I had imagined is actually coming true …when I reread your notes it made me realise how well everything is coming along.

Subconsciously the sessions have helped me a great deal and life is going the way I wanted it to. Thank you so much… although the sessions were absorbing and challenging at times, I really benefitted from them..”
