And I'm a lawyer, just like you.
After hitting my head hard on the glass ceiling, it's now my mission to help other lawyers to navigate their path successfully through the legal profession.

Do you feel stressed? Constantly worrying? Fed up with feeling like you’re missing out?
That's exactly how I felt when I was still practising.
There was no mentorship, no support and no interest in my long-term career development.
I wanted to progress, possibly even go for partnership, but the glass ceiling was very low and there seemed to be unsurmountable barriers to getting what I wanted.
Me, all happy on qualification!
I knew things had to change and decided that I would play my part in making that change from the inside - I moved into talent & development and eventually became an accredited executive coach.
I have sat alongside partners, recruiting qualified lawyers and future trainees.
I have managed appraisal and performance review meetings, guiding partners, associates and trainees on how to get the best outcome.
And most interesting of all, I have coached 100s of lawyers at all stages of their legal career - from senior partners to trainees - helping them to overcome their fears and insecurities to build their career strategies, secure a promotion, gain new business and to get over many other stumbling blocks that hold lawyers back.
Coaching happens when a coach helps a client achieve specific personal or professional goals through targeted questions, supportive challenges & guided reflection.
Working with me, you’ll experience a combination of pragmatic mentoring, inspirational coaching & NLP (neurolinguistic programming) to help you find success in your career.
There may be times when I'm also your mentor, your consultant and your teacher - I will use whatever skills in my toolbox will help to move your forwards as quickly as possible.
Of course, you are ultimately the author of your success which will depend on your commitment to reflecting, planning and taking action in between the coaching sessions.
But I'll be your cheerleader as well as your guide.
With a 25-year background in law and master coach training, you can rest assured you are in capable hands!
