What are the benefits of having a coach?
Coaching has many benefits. People who get coaching experience greater decision making abilities, enhanced self esteem, improved confidence and better interpersonal effectiveness.
Why focus on confidence coaching?
I read a 2018 study by the University of Glasgow that stated that a worrying 75% of women say they lack confidence at work. Seeing this spurred me into action to support women at work.
What can you help me with?
The main situations where women lack confidence are interviews, asking for a pay rise, chairing a meeting, making a presentation, networking and speaking with their boss or other colleagues. I can help you with all of these (and more).
I'm curious. How do I find out more?
Head over to the contact page and send me a message. I will be in touch with you as soon as I can
Who are your clients?
My clients are ambitious women who work in business. They are a mixture of women working in organisations and women who are self employed. What they have in common is that they are high achievers but lack confidence and want a relatable guide.
What is your background?
Great question. I've been working since I was about 16 when I started waitressing in a local restaurant. Since that grand entry into the workplace, I have spent nearly 16 years in the Royal Navy where I worked in sea and in shore based roles. I've also held senior HR roles in a start-up, a global giant (twice), an international creative agency and I've had my own HR consultancy. I guess I am trying to say is that I have coached many senior managers and I have a broad experience to support you
How do you operate?
In my 1-1 Coaching sessions, the topic of discussion is entirely at the discretion of my client. My role is to work with you to bring out positive outcomes. I may focus on your mindset, give you tools to work with or help you get clarity about what you want. I operate as part coach/part mentor. At the moment I am doing all my coaching via Zoom but when we return to come sense of normality, I can do face to face coaching with Melbourne based clients
