I am a coach, mentor, positive psychology practitioner, musician and founder of Barefoot Pilgrim
I support people from all walks of life with direction, life purpose, leadership, well-being and deeper connection with the living earth. I have over 20 years of leadership experience in health, social care, education and regeneration sectors in the UK. Posts have included CEO of Northern Learning Trust, Business Director for Turning Point, and homelessness service commissioning.
I work with anyone looking to create positive change in their personal life, working life or both. I offer the following three coaching specialisms, individually or weaved together into a single holistic package.
Creating Life Purpose
Creating Wellbeing and Resilience
Creating Authentic Leadership
Throughout the 90’s I worked as an addictions counsellor and managed projects and services for homeless people where I developed a deep desire to challenge social injustice and inequality.

In 1:1 coaching, a client typically chooses an issue or part of their life they would like to focus on and explore. I listen, observe and ask open questions that ignite that person’s best thinking, helping them to find their own solution and way forward.
I also work with individuals and teams to help them become happier, more energised and motivated; I support them so they can gain:
clarity of mind and direction, increased motivation and creativity and boosted morale
increased mutual understanding and creativity within teams, improved team spirit and wellbeing
crucial skills such as compassionate communication, self-management, wellbeing and resilience, authentic self leadership, and visioneering
I recommend on average 4 to 6 sessions over a period of 2 to 3 months to make change sustainable. It is also fine to have more sessions over a longer time frame, checking in every few months or longer to discuss progress and self development and to come for just 1 or 2 sessions if you feel you need support with a specific situation or issue.
It is important to me that my coaching work is as inclusive as possible and available to a broad range of people with low to high income. I like to encourage potential clients to speak to me about their particular circumstances if their financial situation stops them from taking up sessions.
After an initial consultation we agree the type of coaching session plan that best fits you. This may be a mix of face to face coaching and walking sessions (this is a popular approach), face to face only or walking only. For my overseas clients I use skype for coaching and assist you to create reflective walking sessions in your own area.
Skype coaching available to anyone who prefers this option
Group coaching and workshops available
workshops for teams, community groups and organisations available
