Great Expectations

I began my career as an Occupational Therapist in the NHS specialising in mental health and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Over a decade I developed my skills in CBT and a wide variety of therapeutic techniques. I am an excellent listener and seek to understand individuals, provide supportive challenge and work with them to achieve the change they want. Later in my career, I also worked in consultancy in both the Public and Private sectors. I led teams and facilitated leadership development and change management training to upskill individuals in how to manage change, develop their leadership skills and set goals. I have been a Director in a software development agency and volunteered to sit on the governing council of my local hospital and as a dog walker in the homeless dog shelter near my home. I bring all of this experience in CBT, coaching, leadership and mentoring together to support and challenge those I work with to help them move forward towards what they want to achieve. My aim is to seek first to listen and then to be understood. What I mean by this, is that my role is to listen to you firstly and then together we facilitate a way forward that will get the best out of our sessions together. I am very friendly and approachable but highly professional. I believe passionately in the power of coaching and mentoring with a balance of support and challenge so that you get what you want and need from our time together. I work primarily remotely but at times work face-to-face. I offer you all of my experience and a broad mix of soft and hard skills combined specifically just for you, so you get the best from me. I work with individuals and teams - (see my photos further down the page). Personally, I enjoy training for triathlon and duathlon and love to go out trail running in the hills.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I worked in the NHS as a health professional for several years and then moved into consultancy work. I then spent some time working in the private sector in a software development agency that I co-owned. After many years I decided to develop my coaching and consultancy work but this time as part of my own business. Working for myself suits my life choices, providing me with the flexibility to train in triathlon and duathlon and I get immense satisfaction from helping other people to progress and grow on their chosen development path both in life or professionally.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am not unique by any stretch, but I am quite rare in that I have a breadth of experience across mental health experience, public sector and private sector work. I have a long history of coaching and mentoring employees and leaders and have worked with individuals as well as groups and in large organisations and I am genuinely happy to help anyone who truly wants it. I am very friendly and down to earth but highly professional and organised at the same time

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

My services are all available online and remotely and sometimes face to face depending on location.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

I use Zoom, Microsoft teams and Slack as well as other platforms as you need.

Life Coaching FAQs

Expand all

Your professional life coach will be able to advise you on the full range of coaching available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted life coach today.

You can have as many or as few life coaching sessions as you like. Many life coaches operate over the phone or via the internet so the sessions can easily fit around your schedule. Some people hire a life coach once every few months, some people have a session once a week.

Life coaching sessions will typically last up to an hour. Often after an initial assessment, sessions can be conducted over the phone, face to face, over email, via Skype/Zoom and occasionally through instant messaging.

During the session, your life coach will ask you a number of questions, such as what you want to achieve in life, what areas you're unhappy with and where you'd like to see yourself in the future. Although a life coach will work with you, it’s often up to you to challenge or reflect upon certain ideas you have to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don't feel comfortable with and all sessions will be confidential.

Life coaching is focused on your present and your future. Coaching accepts your current reality and looks to improve your outcome moving forward. Life coaches are not health professionals and they do not diagnose you. By contrast, therapy focuses on your past and looks to delve into past actions and patterns. It is analytical but not action-oriented.

Most mainstream health insurance providers do not cover the costs of life coaching because it is not considered a mental health profession in the same way therapists and counsellors are.

Life coaches do not need to have any formal or academic qualifications but you may want to look for life coaches who possess an industry-specific qualification, such as the Life Coaching Diploma or Personal Performance Diploma (PPD).

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which shows you reviews from past customers who have used their life coaching services.

A life coach is a trained professional who aims to help and guide individuals to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. They support clients on a journey to rediscover their own strength and abilities. This can include excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled at home, exploring your potential, managing health conditions and achieving life ambitions.

By harnessing techniques based on core psychological principles and intuition, life coaches empower clients and provide a toolkit of teachings to confidently face difficult challenges and overcome emotional barriers.

Life coaches can specialise in one of these particular areas of coaching: career coaching, executive business, group coaching, health and wellbeing, performance management, personal development, relationships, retirement, spiritual and youth coaching.

Rapport is one of the most important parts of life coaching. If you feel uncomfortable with your professional, you are unlikely to gain much from the session. It is advisable to get in contact before you book a session to meet your life coach so you can gauge how comfortable you are in their presence. It is worth talking to a few potential life coaches and ask questions.

Yes! As long as you have a strong internet connection, then your life coach can deliver sessions via an online video chat platform. Alternatively, it can be done over the phone.
