I coach clients to help them make life decisions – whether it’s about having children or not, having a better work life/balance or developing your confidence, I’m here to help you work out what you want and how to get it.
Prior to working as a coach I worked in the charitable sector managing projects and organisations. In 2003, I had been doing this for 15 years and I was ready for a change. I saw a career coach who helped me work out what to do next and then addess my own fears that were holding me back. I made the leap into self-employment and set up my fundraising and management consultancy. Then, in 2006, I was drawn to the principles of Co-Active Coaching because of the creative and holistic nature of the approach and I became a accredited co-active coach.
Today, I describe my working life as being a portfolio career. I have my Ticktock Coaching practice AND I also work as a philanthropy & funding specialist to enable causes I care deeply about whom I work for to find the funding and resources they need to bring their work and witness into the world. (for example, I’m a Quaker & I currently work for Quakers in Britain to helping to raise income to bring Quaker values into the world). I love the variety this gives to my working life.
Since I completed my training in 2006, I’ve coached hundreds of clients. I love the process of helping people on the journey to discover what they really want from their life and work.
Many people ask how I came to coach people on the decision to have children or not. Like many of my friends, when I approached the age of 35, I found myself at the crossroads of a major dilemma – to have children or remain child-free? In the end, I decided to become a parent but I also realised that I could have had an equally satisfying child-free life if I hadn’t had a child. When I started my coach training, I realised that coaching had the potential to help others facing the same challenge.

In addition to coaching people on the decision whether to have children or not, I also coach people on a range of other issues including work/life balance, finding another career path, confidence and leadership.
