MY STORY

Life is all about possibility

coaching for introverted leaders

Let’s be honest, not everyone dreams of being a world leader, global CEO, or Olympic champion.  I believe there’s space for everyone’s dreams no matter how big, or small, or shape they take, and yet so often we don’t feel worthy of, or need coaching for anything less than setting the world on fire. People typically hire coaches to develop their leadership skills, increase their influence, improve their performance, or grow their business, without realizing how limited that thinking is.

At its core coaching empowers you to get you from where you are now to where you want to be. From who you are now to who you want to be.

Coaching is about becoming, and you get to decide who you want to become.

It’s at the heart of everything I do. I’m here to help you find your own way forwards and feel at peace with and proud of the person you become.

In a world where you could be anything, be yourself.

Being an introvert can be confusing in a world which prizes qualities perceived to be more extravert, so it’s no wonder so many of us end up feeling uncertain of ourselves, inadequate, and underappreciated.

Yet it’s exactly your introvert strengths which can help you find your way to creating a successful career or business and a meaningful life in whatever way feels right for you. Your ability to listen, to build deep connections, to think before you act, and to be willing to create the time and space necessary for reflection, exploring possibilities, and finding solutions will be vital for the journey ahead.

The values which underpin my coaching work are:

Calmness

One of the words people most often use to describe me is calm. This came in very handy
when dealing with the unexpected in my corporate career, but more importantly, it’s vital when it comes to creating the right space for you to think and explore your
options.

Freedom

To be yourself, to choose what’s right for you, to free your thinking and invite possibility.

Inspiration

I aim to inspire you to be brave, to continue to develop, explore, be curious, and seek to understand so that you can make a difference in the world.

Trust

Trust is a two-way street in coaching, I trust you have all the answers you need within you, and you can trust me with your vulnerability and to always have your best interests in mind.

Intuition

I am a deeply intuitive person and am skilfully adept at using my intuition to guide me in everything I do. I also encourage and help you to connect and strengthen your own intuition, which will become your guide when our work together is finished.

As an introvert myself I’ve been in your shoes. I know what it’s like to constantly feel like you’re on the periphery. To know despite success, that you never truly feel like you belong. To constantly second-guess yourself for fear of making the wrong decision or letting people down. To feel drained at the end of the day and desperately want to have some time to recover. To feel the weight of other people’s expectations of who you should be on your shoulders.

I also know after 20+ years working in senior roles in supply chain management for multi-national corporations that things rarely go to plan. There are some things you can influence and others which are just out of your hands (and you need to let go of!). My story has taught me to see how things are connected and how to identify what to focus on to have the most impact.

I’ve also spent several years doing voluntary and paid work for the mental health charity Mind, supporting people through bereavement and grief and understand the many forms of loss. Not only of loved ones or relationships, but of our careers, our health, our independence, and our sense of identity.

What’s more, I understand how unattainable a different way of being can often feel. Sometimes it seems so far out of your reach it’s hard to imagine how to navigate your way out of the place you find yourself in now to where you truly want to be.

Here’s what I know:

  • Brand Element 4
    None of us is fully in control.
  • Brand Element 4
    You always have a choice.
  • Brand Element 4
    The only time you can choose is NOW.

It’s time to choose YOU.

“At the centRE of your being you have the answer; you know who you are, and you know what you want.”
