Lifting You - One-to-one coaching transparent.png

six one-to-one coaching sessions to help you through periods of change, uncertainty, decision or just when you feel you need more support 

You know when you need someone knowledgeable but uninvolved, who can coach and / or mentor you through a particular situation or period?

That's Me!







Research suggests coaching clients report that thanks to coaching, they improve • relationships (73%), communication skills • (72%), interpersonal skills • (71%), work performance • (70%), work/life balance • (67%), and wellness • (63%)

The work I do with individuals on a one-to-one basis tends to happen during periods of change, challenge, or uncertainty in client's lives


It may be when they're seeking or about to start in a new role. It might be when they're facing uncertainty, or a loss of confidence, focus or motivation. They might be simply tired of the loneliness of their post.


Some seek rebalancing due to changes at home. Some come because of changes at work.  Some come because change has affected both work and home

I provide skills, performance, executive and confidence coaching / mentoring.  Our work together usually will cover one or more of these areas:

wellbeing & life balance

mindset & confidence

career and skills development

stress management, resilience and boundaries

imposter syndrome, perfectionism and procrastination

performance & effectiveness

management skills & confidence

focus & motivation

isolation & disconnection

relationships and conflict resolution at work

coping with change and uncertainty

When I say coaching / mentoring, I provide a blend of the two.  I deliver what you need at the time. Sometimes that's the support and questioning to discover the solution for yourself. Others, it's simply to tell you how things are done


Skills coaching / mentoring is used when you don't know what you need to know. Where new skills, knowledge or competencies need to be learnt, honed and embedded.

This could be to help succeed in a new or expanded role, to prepare for a promotion or for career progression.


About half of my skills coaching clients approach me themselves to help them take a step forwards.


The other half come to me via a Manager who truly wants to promote an existing members of staff but doesn't have the time to coach them themselves.


We work on theory, examples, best practice and I share my own knowledge, skills and expertise.


Performance coaching / mentoring is used when you know what you want or need to achieve, and know that you can achieve it, but need some support, help or some guided thinking through.


Performance coaching combines direct (taught) and indirect (listening & questioning) coaching.

Sometimes clients approach me, worried that they are under-performing and not feeling able to approach their line manager.  Other clients are introduced or referred by their line manager.  I've successfully coaching a number of individuals through PIPs using performance coaching.


More and more recently, I've been asked if I provide confidence coaching / mentoring (which I do). In fact, so frequent were the requests at the height of the pandemic in 2020, I piloted a group coaching programme, Change The Stories, to help people work through confidence, limiting belief and imposter syndrome issues.

Confidence coaching helps the individual to discover confidence for themselves.  It's one of my favourite forms of coaching and the results are brilliant to see.

executive coaching

The executive coaching work we do is often with Directors, Exec Directors, Senior Leaders, or CEOs, where the often peerless nature of their role and their responsibilities, leave them with no obvious critical friend, sounding board, rant-buddy, thinking partner or form of accountability.

These relationships often last much longer than 6 sessions, purely because of the ongoing benefit to the recipient.

Thank you for the support.  Today in particular, your question about over-delivery and the precedent it sets really struck me as the exact unconscious stress I've been struggling to identify
