About me

My name is Elaine Thomas and with 31 years experience working in local government within Education and Social Care departments and 25 years of managing, leading, coaching and mentoring teams in Local Authorities and SLaM NHS Trust I can help you with my organic approach to self-motivation and the use of elevation techniques to help you overcome your self-limiting beliefs.

I listen, encourage, question, motivate, empower, empathise, help you to set goals, plan and ultimately enable you to realise your full potential.

Coaching with me


I help managers, teams and individuals to achieve their goals and maximise their performance by locking into what makes them tick but equally what prevents them from reaching for what they really want.

What are those limiting beliefs that stop you from taking risks? What obstacles are there in your way that you are afraid to overcome? What habits do you continue to repeat while expecting a different outcome? What are your strengths? What do you need to work on?

If you’re a new manager who feels like they’ve been thrown in at the deep end or an existing manager dealing with new challenges and can’t see your way through then contact me with your dilemma and I will help you to resolve it. Equally, I work with individuals with personal goals that they struggle with achieving or even knowing where to start to bring about success.

​I am here to help you answer these questions and many more in order to move you onto the next stage of achieving success.


Apart from listening to my client, using reflective techniques and helping them to identify the best course of action in order to attain their goals, I also use what I describe as my 3 Step Elevation technique for confidence building. I like to ask the questions that encourage people to be honest with themselves and unlock their true potential by identifying their 'blockers' and eliminating them through specific target setting and action plans.

I also utilise more common techniques such as:

GROW Coaching Model
Goal – Set the goal
Reality – Assess the current situation
Options – Devise the action plan
Will – Client agrees to what they will action


​SMART goals bringing accountability and structure with clear targets and opportunities for review and measuring progress until your ultimate goal is achieved.

And many more……………



Nowadays, with the increased use of technology to interact, the traditional face to face discussion is not always the most convenient or preferred option for busy people. That’s why I offer mainly online coaching with telephone and email interaction including instant messaging. The advantage of this is that for those of you who may find it difficult to attend appointments due to location, childcare arrangements or previous commitments, etc you will still be able to access my services but at a mutually convenient time and in your own comfortable and relaxed environment.
