About Me

“I really love being able to make a difference in the lives of women who are wanting to move forward with their career and business dreams, goals and aspirations!”

I have worked in recruitment, sales, business development, digital marketing and project management, and carried out comprehensive coaching training covering a wide range of coaching frameworks and tools. After university I started a student and graduate recruitment start-up with friends, then went and worked for an international corporate recruitment company. Then while working at The Coaching Academy, I project managed setting up a new training academy for entrepreneurs which was a collaboration between the inspirational Bev James and one of the original ‘Dragons’ & Recruitment Entrepreneur James Caan. This gave me valuable experience of the world of start-ups and entrepreneurialism, and what it takes to be successful in the world of business.

After having children, I set up as a freelance Recruiter/Talent Partner, recruiting for a range of start-ups and entrepreneurial brands including Jimmy’s Iced Coffee, Love Corn & Holly & Co, and for a series-C funded tech start-up. Most recently, I returned to work part-time for The Coaching Academy & Bev James Talent Management, recruiting and managing a range of projects, while adding to my coaching qualifications and setting up my coaching business. Along with a Marketing Communications degree, I am a qualified NLP Practitioner, trained in Career Coaching, Work-Life Balance Coaching and a certified DISC Personality & Behavioural Profile assessor – a tool that enables people to enhance their leadership and communication skills.

My Passion…

I started Periscope Coaching because I have always been passionate about small business, innovation and all things entrepreneurial. My career has predominantly been working directly with founders and within small entrepreneurial businesses, and I have always loved helping others succeed, so business coaching was the perfect path for me. Alongside my Periscope Coaching services, I also enjoy sharing insights and inspiration via The Mum Coach and iJobCoach.com, and staying connected to the recruitment industry through Recruiter Coaching.

My coaching approach blends ‘non-directive’ coaching as this is where I see the real breakthroughs happen, with other coaching methodologies, tools and techniques across the wider coaching spectrum. Due to my wide range of experience in the world of business, marketing, sales and recruitment, along with Coaching Sessions, as part of my programmes I also offer Insight Sessions. These sessions enable me to add extra value through helpful input, insights and feedback and help to spark my clients’ ideas, creativity and strategies.

Whether you are seeking to start or grow a business, I am dedicated to guiding you towards realising your fullest potential! Through a collaborative and empowering coaching relationship, we will work together to uncover your strengths, ignite your creativity, and cultivate the necessary skills and mindset for success.

Coaching helps you untangle situations, declutter your thoughts and overcome limiting beliefs, so you can gain the clarity needed to be able to see new options and opportunities that were not visible to you at the beginning…much like a periscope!
