If you’re looking at this page, the chances are that your business or career has always been important to you.
I get it. For me, there’s no sense of satisfaction quite like the one that comes from believing in your work and achieving the goals you set out to smash. That buzz can be so addictive but sometimes that feel good factor can wane when the pressure mounts, or there’s a mismatch between values and an imbalance between life and work.
As a professional coach my role is to support ambitious individuals who are seeking greater fulfilment to thrive - to reach their leadership potential – to launch their businesses – to forge sustainable success in a way that negotiates the hard parts while finding harmony with their talents, values, visions and goals.
I help my clients create the space to grow, to get clarity, build resilience, step into their power, shift their perspective and get strategic about how to practically achieve their work and lifestyle objectives. And all without having to sacrifice their health or happiness!
My background is in leadership roles in the corporate, public and third sectors so I understand first-hand the thrill of life in the fast lane together with the stress and burnout it can lead to as well as the quest for more fulfilling, rewarding work that sets your soul on fire. Most importantly I also know how transformative regular coaching can be.
The way I work involves focused exercises, strategic practices and NLP change processes with an emphasis on mindset and strategy. I offer a range of coaching programmes that specifically cater for entrepreneurs, new business owners and anyone who wants to change careers, seek a better work-life balance and is willing to do the work! So wherever you are right now, I can help you develop the strength, strategies and self-belief to succeed and design the future you want.
Why work with me?
I’m a fully qualified business coach and NLP practitioner.
I hold an ILM Level 5 in Effective Coaching and Mentoring as well as a NLP Practitioner certification accredited by the Association of Neuro Linguistic Programming (ANLP). I am a professional member of both the ANLP and the Association of Coaching and I have been coaching teams to success for over 5 years.
For me, coaching is about giving people the space, support and strategies to claim their potential and step into their power. I'm interested in the story of how you are where you are and will help you rewrite your narrative. In all I do I'm focused on tangible outcomes that get results but I take a friendly (and firm when necessary!) approach to helping you to overcome challenges, whether they are related to external circumstances or internal blocks like limiting beliefs and imposter syndrome.
No matter where you're starting from or where you want to go, I can help you get there!
"I was facing problems to grow my business. There were some mental blocks. With the help of NLP techniques, Lisa helped me to remove those mental blocks. She helped me to get clarity. I highly recommend Lisa to business owners"
Labani Hembram, Freelance Marketing Strategist
"Lisa has been amazing. I have had 3 sessions and after each one I felt energised and inspired. I've learned a lot of useful things that I will use to boost my business and my confidence has definitely increased. On top of the sessions Lisa has sent me extra tips and links which have been much appreciated. I would highly recommend Lisa."
Suzanne Lovell, Business Owner, Three Business Services
"Working with Lisa as a coach was a great experience. Over three sessions, across four weeks, I was amazed at how much progress I made in areas of my business and personal life that were feeling difficult to progress before the coaching. Lisa listens well and focuses on the key areas for change. Lisa provided the tools and techniques to unlock areas I was finding a challenge and help shift my mindset in a positive direction. Having time to focus on objectives with Lisa as a cheerleader was really powerful for me. Knowing I was accountable for the outcomes and Lisa was there to listen and reflect back was impactful. My confidence has grown, I'm continuing to move forward with my goals and objectives and I'm learning new skills. I would highly recommend working with Lisa - thank you so much!"
Joanne McCormick, Director, The Healthy Head Company
"Solutions were not just provided but worked through as a collaborative. This made the tools and ideas we discussed more personal and thus I was keen to implement and stick too. It was this personal collaborative approach that I found different to other coaching session I have been involved. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lisa to other organisations and look forward to working with her in the future."
Robin Hambidge, Pre-construction Director, Kingerlee Ltd
"I cannot recommend Lisa enough! A kind, talented and emotionally intelligent coach who has made a tangible difference to my business and relationships with her techniques."
Steph Ward, Chiropractor and Company Director, Townhouse Wellbeing Clinic
"Lisa's coaching programme was very insightful, motivating and inspiring. Lisa has an ability to draw the best out in you without you even realising it. She is excellent at setting the scene and creating the boundaries at the start of each session. This enables you to feel "held" in that space as you go on to find your own solutions to issues you want to explore. You are invested in the "homework" as you came up with the strategies. It was a real game changer for me and kickstarted the next stage of my management journey. Thanks Lisa!"
Julia Blackwell, Wellbeing Manager: Information Service, Oxfordshire Mind
"Lisa provided a safe space and has a fantastic ability to offer reflection on my thoughts and experience balanced. Lisa knew when to query things I had taken as fact and encouraged me to explore new and alternative solutions. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend Lisa as a support to anyone for person-centred coaching."
Patrick Dawson, Wellbeing Manager: Cherwell & West Locality, Oxfordshire Mind
