I am a hybrid Executive Coach, merging the worlds of coaching and therapy (hence the hybrid).
My 121 coaching programmes are for Senior Leaders and Directors in business. They are practical and work based, but fundamentally focused on delving deeper than most Executive Coaching so that the real issues are uncovered and dealt with, and the desired changes stick.
This means at times, the coaching might feel challenging and uncomfortable, but that's a good thing as it's a sign that progress is being made.
I'm also a massive believer in helping you to figure out (and more importantly) value what makes you uniquely you. So we'll focus a lot on your natural strengths and how you can play to them in all you do.View here
I work 121 with you over 6 months on a personalised programme to fit your specific needs.
My coaching programmes help you by exploring the whole of you, not just you at work. We will identify what makes you both human and unique, and co-create personalised strategies to:
Through finding and harnessing your natural strengths and energy.
By gaining clarity on who you are, what you stand for, and what you love to do.
By managing your emotions better to reduce stress and transform the way you live, work and lead.
I provide a toolkit of techniques, exercises and activities that will support the coaching work we do together. These toolkits will enable you to continue to explore and cement your learning in your own space and at your own pace.View here
“Steph is one of the few people in my life that is able to cut through my nonsense, hold the mirror up and generally kick my ass to make me stop, reflect, learn and make choices.”
Sam Oliver, UK HR Director at Logicalis
“Steph helped me realise that my personality was not suited to corporate life. She coached me through the transition from corporate board member to entrepreneur. I now get to be at my best every day, running a multimillion pound technology company and enjoying seeing something flourish and grow!”
Richard Alexander, Technology Director at Cinos Communications Services Limited
“Steph ran a strengths-based team day for us and the feedback from the team has been fantastic. I am really delighted with how the day went and the contribution from everyone. Steph's style and approach really resonated with the team and encouraged an open and honest contribution from all. I look forward to working with Steph more in the future.”
Laura Brown, Retail Director at Harrods
“Through comfortable, sociable, considerate, emotional and fun conversations Steph has helped me get complete clarity on what makes me who I am. Steph's laser focus is to unlock what makes you happy and then how you can use that to make a difference.”
Gary Lomas, Sales Director at Logicalis UK
“After 15+ years working in my sector - and after having a baby which turned my life upside down - I decided that I'd like to set up my own business. But I was nervous about taking the plunge. Steph helped me find ways to increase my confidence, put my fear into perspective and tackle each of my concerns in turn. All this gave me the courage to hand in my notice and start flying solo!”
Nina Baum, MD of iNBusiness
