My Mentoring & Coaching Style

I integrate the best of Personal Construct Psychology, Transactional Analysis, Positive Psychology, Cognitive-Behavioural & Solution-Focused Coaching, Mindfulness Based CBT, and Humanistic theories of change.

One size never fits all and I’ve ensured that I have kept my knowledge and skill-set relevant – to enable me to offer a bespoke service to each individual I collaborate with to facilitate their desired change.

I work with both your head and your heart – to bring about deeper change and transformation from the inside out.

My style of work is collaborative and comprehensive, challenging and compassionate.

I unearth the underlying causes of your difficulties, as well as transforming the consequences – to bring about results with measurable outcomes both personally and professionally.

A bit about me…in my past life…

I worked in a managerial and leadership capacity with the Civil Service for 13 years.

As well as supervising a team, I was also responsible for staff appraisals and consideration for promotion, as well as introducing performance enhancing input and evaluation.

I also prepared and presented cases in the Magistrate’s and Criminal Court – and liaised with solicitors and barristers and court officials as part of this work.

I’ve also been involved with the prison, probation and social services departments – both as a liaison officer as well as a staff therapist.

I have undertaken work for several Employee Assistance Providers over the years too. 

I have also worked in retail and finance – quite a few years ago.
