Are you facing challenging times at work?
If you are a professional, and dealing with tricky issues at work that do not have a quick solution, then I can help.
My clients are managers of teams or projects, or they are aspiring to become managers in their organisation. Others are running their own business or consultancy and are in the first two years of business start-up. They come because they need some space to think through issues like managing the team, dealing with a difficult colleague, handling overwhelm, or planning the next step for a happier working life.
I will not tell you what to do, though you will come out of our session(s) knowing that for yourself. I will support you to see the full picture, and challenge you to connect to your existing inner resources and what your intuition and intellect want to tell you. I will not judge you.
I take a practical, solution focused approach but I will not rush you to find the answer. I will help you get in touch with those things we normally leave at home in the morning: your intuitions, feelings, goals and hopes, as well as what you already know about the problem, and use creative techniques to help you draw out the solution from yourself. I aim to make sessions enjoyable and that you leave feeling relieved and re-inspired.
Sometimes it only takes one session, sometimes a few more, but if you bring a work-related problem to my coaching room you’ll find that you walk away with something that will help you take a step forward. It may be enhanced leadership skills, a new perspective or creative solution, an increase in self-confidence and self-esteem or the ability to communicate more effectively.
This isn’t about making a “new you”, but finding and employing inner resources that you didn’t know you had so you can bring more of the real you to your work. And everyone around you benefits.

I have been coached by Liz in what has proved to be a turning point in my professional life. She enabled me to focus on long term issues and achieve a complete breakthrough on how to think about and handle more immediate problems in a creative and positive way. I would recommend her most highly and without reservation!
Tom Blake, HR Partner at Camphill Village Trust
Liz worked with me in a series of coaching sessions when I was in a difficult period of my life both personally and professionally feeling somewhat stuck in both areas. She has an extraordinary ability to create a true listening environment where it was possible for me to safely surface and address the significant questions and find positive solutions. Through her personal skills and integrity Liz found and asked the incisive questions which liberated new thinking and enabled the kind progress I was looking for. Our sessions together were enormous fun and in themselves created new energy for me. I hold Liz in high esteem and appreciation and I learned much from her personal example and practice.

Jennifer McConnell, Coach, Trainer & Facilitator
When I first experienced Liz's coaching, I was blown away. She is not only incredibly skilful and creative in her coaching, but also deeply intuitive in the way that she connects with what is at the heart of the matter. Actually, Liz also trained me as a Post Graduate Level coach trainee and she is a fantastic tutor. She is well-read and takes care to explain unfamiliar concepts and theories. Her facilitation of experiential group earning is well-organised, flexible and encouraging. If you get the chance to work with Liz, you will find it life-changing!
Paul Holland, Senior Independent Mental Health Advocate
Throughout the sessions I felt at total ease and had the feeling of being with someone who understood where I was coming from. I suppose this would be one of Liz“ fundamental strengths, she is very person centred.
The sessions have benefited me in many areas of my work. I learned how to be more considered in my interpersonal relationships I encounter on a daily basis. Liz challenged my thought processes in regards to these people and led me to consider alternative approaches and responses. I have noticed a huge difference both personally and professionally since implementing these methods.
