I help individuals, teams and organisations achieve and sustain the changes they want to make, through coaching and facilitation. I have an unusual combination of executive coaching, business ownership, corporate leadership and consultancy experience.

This combination does influence my approach to coaching which is best described as ‘coaching with content’, a cross between traditional coaching and mentoring. I am always happy to talk, whether you are a prospective client or a coach starting out.

If you want to find out more check out my LinkedIn profile or give me a call on 07956 349793.

I’ve worked for big corporates, started and successfully grown my own businesses, as well as helped others start and grow theirs. My own business has been digital agency then management consultancy. I am currently a non-exec and have been Chairman, CEO and Sales and Marketing Director.

I have been advising and mentoring friends, colleagues, companies and teams throughout my career. I believe my life and commercial experience gives me the wisdom and insight to support you as your ‘companion on an unexpected journey’.

I work with Boards and executive teams to help them improve their performance, with particular focus on improving their capabilities of individuals, helping them to present themselves more effectively and to improve their confidence in diverse situations that they might find challenging.

I have been mentoring since 2001, coaching since 2007 and coach training since 2010. It is the central part of my work and something that has given me great satisfaction as well as seeing many benefits for others.

My initial training was as a business coach, and subsequently I trained as an ICF accredited coach, and now hold their PCC level. The main pleasure I now get is teaching others to coach, either in their setting or on our accredited programmes.

Categories: Coaching

Decades of experience in aviation safety and innovation have taught me to always look beyond the obvious, to peel away the layers and take into account both internal and external contexts when striving for the optimum outcome.

As a life, leadership and wellness coach I take this systemic approach when working with clients, to enable long lasting and transformational change. I have lived on the hamster wheel, but my transition to a coach and a writer has allowed me to well and truly step off.

Time and again we find ourselves peddling ever faster, often losing sight of where we are, and where we want to be. Coaching enables you to pause, reflect, and really consider your true purpose in a safe and confidential environment.

The skills I have gleaned as a leader, decision maker, mentor, wellbeing advocate and board trustee have blended to inform my coaching practice, with my client’s needs always at the heart of the process.

I bring experience and authenticity to my work, enabling you to discover new possibilities and translate insight into actionable change.

I hold a PG Certificate in Coaching Psychology and am an accredited member of the Association for Coaching. I look forward to working with you.

What is a lack of confidence and direction really costing you? Continuously undervalued? Missing out on your dreams? Feeling disconnected? I see you and I hear you because I have been there. The good news is that life does not have to be this way!

Hi, I’m Grace (insert cheesy wave here). As an accountant working in financial services, I felt drained. It wasn’t just the crazy deadlines & the pressure of the job. It was something harder to pin-down. The feeling of ‘meh’ was my default setting. In order to escape, I found myself working excessively late nights hoping that at some point all the work would make me feel whole, make me feel valued, & heard… (Spoiler Alert: It didn’t.) I tried to change my life by making superficial shifts.

Slowly realising that I kept slipping into the same habits that didn’t serve me emotionally, mentally or professionally. I was going nowhere. In desperation I hired a life coach. Honestly, I had no idea what coaching even was, but I was curious, & I figured that I had nothing to lose. This was the start of a beautiful life changing journey. My coach helped me reconnect with who I am, what matters to me, & how to live my best life. I smile as I look back at where I have come from, & how challenging & rewarding the journey has been.

I have a clear understanding of who I am, what fills my cup, & the direction my life is headed. That’s why I wake up every day passionate about helping others to find their own paths with a structured coaching program designed to empower you to unlock all the best parts of you. I know, life’s busy. Give yourself permission to invest in your own happiness, success, & fulfilment. Your future is yours to write. Trust is an essential ingredient when working together.

Here’s some more information on my professional qualifications: I graduated from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), an international coaching program accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I am a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner & COR.E Transitions/Leadership Dynamics Specialist.

I chose to study at iPEC because of the school’s well established roots & high regard within the industry. Having obtained my accounting designation, I see an incredible value in having a well-recognised certification to be able to demonstrate that I have dedicated a large amount of time to refine my coaching skills & to ensure that my coaching has lasting results for my clients.

Hi there, I started coaching in 2001 after a thirteen years of commercial (mostly sales) experience in the technology, media and telecoms sectors.

I had been sitting on the roof of a houseboat on a lake near Srinagar in Kashmir at sunset, listening to the Muezzin calling the faithful to prayer. After months of exploration I finally realised that the thing that gives me the most satisfaction in life is helping people. I also love the world of business so it was obvious I should be coaching in business.

I’m lucky enough to have been in occupied solidly ever since with some great clients. I’m continuing to develop as an Exec coach (it never ends!) and my focus now is firmly on coaching leadership teams.

My clients tell me that I’m pragmatic and practical which my wife finds hard to believe.

I am an HR consultant and Executive Coach. After many years in the world of corporate HR, I left to set up my own HR Consultancy and Coaching business in 2017, having qualified as a coach with AoEC.

I work on a variety of HR projects and coaching both within large corporates and smaller organisations. However, my real passion is to help leaders within organisations to become more effective, both individually (through coaching), and to help them develop their teams to understand themselves and each other better (through the use of psychometrics, team building events and coaching). I also help them deal with their difficult people issues effectively. This enables them to improve the performance of their team.

In addition, I work with individuals who are at a crossroads in their career and don’t know what to do, to enable them to clarify the way forwards and confidently make the changes they want to make.

Joanna Lott

I came to a realisation that I needed to find work that aligned with my personal values so left London HR/OD life in September 2019. I began studying for the ILM Level 7 in Executive Coaching and Mentoring in September 2019 so am just beginning my coaching journey and really looking forward to making a difference to the lives of others. I’ve been lucky enough to work within various businesses, large and small, in different roles and directly with the leadership team, so I’ve had great exposure to the challenges and people issues that arise.

I’ve led work on employee engagement, culture and values and would love to use coaching to help businesses increase their engagement and business outcomes. I’m delighted to be part of the group and to connect with people who have the same passion as me, and to learn from you all.

Hi, I am an executive & team coach and I love my work!

My clients range from senior leaders in national & international companies and charities, owners and managers of SMEs, to leaders in state and independent schools. I support them to achieve positive, sustainable change & growth through improved thinking, by asking questions that enable them to reflect, have new insights and find their own solutions.

Using new findings in neuroscience which help us understand how the brain works best, my coaching style is warm and supportive, whilst having challenge when appropriate.

I particularly enjoy working with women leaders as they develop their careers towards their potential whilst adopting flexible working practices.

I am qualified with Results Coaching Systems as both an Executive and Team Coach, accredited by the ICF at ACC and applying for my PCC in 2016.

Julia Bend

Working within the corporate environment for almost 30 years, I have seen how people struggle with workplace change and how that has affected career choices and confidence. This can also lead to frustration and self-doubt, jeopardising progression at the very time when focus should be put on advancement and satisfaction.

I specialise in supporting individuals to build on the skills they have already developed, so that they can identify themselves and push for the recognition and promotion they deserve.

Hi, I’m a business and executive coach and I do two things: I help businesses unlock value through better pricing solutions and I coach businesses and executives to improve their leadership skills and achieve their goals.

Pricing is one of the key areas for improving profitability but conversely, it’s an aspect of your business you probably spend relatively little time thinking about. There are many ways to approach your pricing strategy and I can coach you through the options available and help you implement a plan to achieve results quickly.

I am also a trained executive and leadership development coach and work with people in any business context to help you improve your skills and achieve your goals.
