Why should you choose to be coached by me when there are so many other life-coaches?
My own life experiences form the basis of my passion for coaching. I have experienced several career changes, “retired”, and then re-trained and set up my own company.
I know the importance of having clarity of vision, gratitude and working in harmony with my values and beliefs.
I cared for my husband after he experieinced series of mini-strokes, and I have lost loved-ones.
I know the turbulent rainbow of emotions which life can bring.
Life is full of challenges. They are different for each of us. And we each choose how we respond to every new challenge.
I worked in the UK pensions industry for over 30 years, in various capacities. My last role, as a Client Relationship Manager, with a major UK pension provider, took me all over the UK, talking with Boards, Committees, employers and their staff. I saw that although financial advice was available, there was very little assistance offered to retirees to help them to find a new direction and identity. I have witnessed how damaging losing those anchors can be.
I have a BA in Accounting and Finance from Heriot-Watt University. I gained a post graduate certificate in Mid-Life, Pre-Retirement & Life Planning, from Life Academy in association with Surrey University, which emphasised the advantages of facilitated learning and effective coaching.
I am a Master Practitioner of NLP (Neuro-Linguist Programming), certified by INLPTA (International NLP Trainers Association) and a member of both INLPTA and ANLP (The Association for NLP). I am guided by their codes of ethics in all my life-coaching activities, and beyond.
In February 2017, I passed the Chartered Institute of Insurance’s R04 examination on “Pensions and Retirement Planning” which I took to ensure that I maintain a professional level of relevant retirement-related knowledge.
Since becoming a life-coach I have enjoyed assisting clients in making all sorts of life-changes. I feel privileged to be given my client’s trust and confidence while assisting them to work towards finding their own solutions. Take a look at some of my feedback from clients.
I continue to expand my coaching skills and knowledge by creating new processes, reading, writing books and blogs, and collaborating with colleagues. This enables me to deliver an effective, bespoke and inspirational service for my clients.
I am loving this “Third Age” of my life. Life-coaching continues to guide and support me through the many changes in my life. I can assist you to embrace and enjoy the changes in your life too.
