Mid-Career Coach | ICF accredited, PCC certified

I help professionals in mid-career step up as the leader they long to be.

A bit about me

I’m a Brit by background and when the opportunity came to move to Singapore in 2018 I jumped at it! At the moment, I am currently re-based in the UK.

As an HRD, I saw just how often good people got stuck in mid-career wondering ”is this it?” They stagnate, feeling increasingly miserable and powerless to have the big impact they want – wasting time, talent and money. I now work as a business owner and coach helping people at all levels turn work from something they do into something they love.

I’m big on integrity and relationships so I blend coaching and mentoring with my 20 years of corporate experience to help clients create win/win solutions - as I truly believe that’s when the magic happens for individuals and organisations.

Professional Experience

I spent 20 years working for big brands in financial services, tech, retail & transport. In my last role as HRD in Visa Europe, I operated as part of senior management teams, led complex change programmes, coached & advised leaders & mentored loads of people coming up through the ranks. All of this means I get how things really work in the corporate world. I understand just how challenging it can be & I loved it (most of the time!)

I’m a Professional Certified Coach with the ICF & have specialisms in Neuroscience, Co-active coaching & fascinating Centaur Leadership. I interweave it all depending to create the perfect blend for my clients.
