Coaching Bio

Embarking on my coaching journey in 2012, I transitioned from a rich background in education spanning over three decades. Throughout my career, I’ve honed my leadership style, people management skills, and business acumen in diverse and often challenging contexts.

This extensive experience grants me a deep understanding of the hurdles professionals face and equips me with the expertise to guide them successfully. I bring this nuanced understanding to coaching conversations, enriching my clients’ experiences and outcomes.

Believing in the importance of qualifications and continuous growth, I pursued credentials as an International Coaching Federation (ICF) Professional Certified Coach (PCC), underscoring my commitment to excellence. Regular supervision further ensures the quality and efficacy of my coaching practice, providing clients with added confidence and assurance.

Approaching coaching with an optimistic mindset, I firmly believe in the power of choice and possibility. My purpose as a coach is to empower individuals to unearth their opportunities and take decisive action to thrive, rather than merely cope.

Coaching Experience

As an accredited executive business coach, I’ve had the privilege of partnering with schools, Trusts, the NHS, and private sector entities to design and deliver bespoke leadership programs. These programs are meticulously crafted to foster well-being, resilience, and transformative growth among participants.

In my current capacity as an associate to Blend Ltd, I lead group coaching sessions within the NHS Deanery program, guiding professionals to unlock their potential and navigate complex challenges with clarity and confidence. Additionally, I provide individual coaching to executive headteachers enrolled in the NPQEL program, empowering them to lead with vision and impact.

Career Experience

Throughout my career spanning over two decades in education, I’ve held leadership roles in three schools as a headteacher. My tenure culminated in the publication of “Creating Change in Urban Settings,” a testament to my strategic leadership and unwavering commitment to driving positive change in challenging environments.

Beyond my direct school leadership roles, I serve as a Strategic Director for the Curriculum Foundation, where I contribute to global education initiatives. Notably, my involvement in curriculum development projects in South Sudan since 2015 underscores my dedication to advancing education and empowering communities worldwide.

Currently, as School Improvement Director for a Multi-Academy Trust, I leverage my coaching expertise to spearhead strategic initiatives aimed at enhancing educational outcomes and fostering a culture of continuous improvement. Through collaborative leadership and a focus on individual empowerment, I strive to drive positive change and create lasting impact across the Trust.
