the founder of Accendo Coaching and an award-winning executive coach.
My passion is helping people like you to succeed.
I specialise in working with business leaders to realise their strengths, build their confidence and unlock their potential for leadership success.
I’ve been a personal performance and corporate executive coach since 2012. Since qualifying, I’ve been named The Coaching Academy’s Executive Coach of the Year and runner up Life Coach of the Year for my tailored workshops, one-to-one coaching programmes and published guide to improving employee performance.
Prior to embarking on my coaching journey, I worked in financial services for more than 25 years, helping employees in branches and call centres to embrace change and view it as an opportunity for success.
I am constantly developing my professional knowledge so I’m using the most up to date tools and techniques in my work.
