The Self-Leadership Coach

Empowerment through challenge and change

Are you looking for more meaning, impact or ease in your life and work?

Work with me to:  

  • Access your inner self-leadership resources – e.g. clarity, calmness, confidence, creativity;
  • Navigate more effectively through challenge, choice and change.

I integrate different coaching, therapy and consultancy approaches to help you realise your highest potential:

 

  • Accredited Life & Executive Coach (IAPC&M)
  • Practitioner of Internal Family Systems psychotherapy
  • Certified in the Zen Coaching network (mindfulness-based)
  • Organisational Design & Change Consultant

Self-leadership is an ability to consciously observe and influence your own thoughts, feelings and actions – so you can achieve your purpose and goals.
It drives self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-growth.
Some describe it as a higher level of psychological maturity or emotional intelligence. Others understand it as spiritual realisation – as coming to know who you truly are.

“[People in Self-leadership] describe feeling centered, calm, and light, with a pervasive sense of wellbeing. They demonstrate confidence and openheartedness. They have a greater sense of choice. Many also gain access to an exhilarating sense of connection to others…”  Dr. Richard C. Schwartz, founder of IFS psychotherapy

 

“Exceptional leaders distinguish themselves because of superior self-leadership.”  Daniel Goleman, psychologist and author of bestselling book, Emotional Intelligence

Can I help you?

I work with a range of clients – including senior managers, junior execs, small business creators, mindfulness explorers, and anyone else struggling with difficult experiences (more details here) – across the UK and internationally. Areas of focus are:

 

  • Finding more balance and integration in your work/life;
  • Navigating transitions, e.g. review/re-engage at ‘milestone’ ages, during lifestage shifts and new year planning; career change; new leadership roles; self-identity questions;
  • Processing life-shocks and lifestyle disruptions, e.g. post-Covid work practices, redundancy, burnout,  health issues, relocation, relationship rupture;
  • Supporting employees through their personal experience of organisational change programmes.

Why work with me? 

My approach to coaching has been shaped by a 20-year career in international business consultancy and, at the same time, a long path towards healing, mindfulness and self-realisation.  This breadth of experience means that I can work flexibly around your needs.  I bring alternative perspectives and approaches that cast new light on challenging issues – but I also ensure that the coaching relationship is grounded in practical considerations, goals and action plans.
