I’m a leadership coach and communications specialist. I specialise in supporting clients to build the core ‘power’ skills that develop effective working relationships, greater engagement in the workplace and improved business performance.
I work with organisations and individuals to offer support in three key areas:
Change & transition
Women in leadership
My client base is varied. I coach people from a wide range of backgrounds and industries at different stages in their careers. From junior managers through to business and functional leaders, my clients want to hone leadership skills, transition into new roles, plan career moves and communicate effectively. They work in sectors such as Engineering, Tech, Construction, Defence, Media etc and are based in Europe, the USA and Asia.
I have a particular passion for supporting the development of women in leadership, having spent most of my career working in male-dominated industries!
I’m also a British-French citizen and coach in English and French.
I bring twenty years’ experience in multi-national corporate environments. Prior to starting my own business, I was based in Paris and led communications for companies in the defence, automotive and professional services sectors. As an active executive committee member, I managed large teams at a senior level across several countries and headed up communication of long-term transformational enterprise programs.
Having experienced the positive impact of coaching both for myself and for team members, I was amazed by the potential it represented for improved relationships, performance, and effective communication in the workplace. I re-trained as a professional coach and used my interest and skills within my own leadership style, before deciding to leave corporate world to set up Embrace Your Change in 2019.
Outside coaching, I enjoy travelling, being outdoors – running and walking with Bear the dog – and spending time with family and friends.
I’m a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credentialed by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), hold an ICF accredited Transformational Coaching diploma (Animas) and am a Certified NLP Practitioner, (Quality Culture). I’m also a member of the Association for Coaching and take part in regular Coaching Supervision.
