Coaching conversations that act as a scaffold. 

One to one sessions with one focus; to support you by creating time and space for new learning and awareness to develop.

Our approach is always personal and therefore differs for each client. Some of the topics people typically look to coaching for are stress management, time management, career progression, dealing with change, building confidence, navigating stakeholder relationships and gaining a better sense of balance.

“John’s coaching made a crucial difference when I was at a low ebb. Thank you very much! I’m feeling much better now.”


“Wow….. Rachael has impressive ability of being able to analyse your output in an effective method. She has transformed the way I work. With an in depth study of my working practices and I’ve been able to double the amount of work I get through. It’s improved the quality of my home life and work-life balance.”

Tailored coaching packages

At times we can all feel like we need time to focus on ourselves. This might be from feeling overwhelmed, that something needs to change or when pressure builds to perform at extraordinarily high levels for long periods. For this reason, we offer flexible coaching packages to meet your needs on either a fortnightly, monthly or quarterly basis. Sessions can also be provided outside of normal work hours if required.

We recommend a program of 4 to 8 sessions for senior leaders, and the Hogan Leadership Assessment to provide a source of impartial, data driven feedback.


Our overarching guiding principles:

Purpose exploration. Deep dive into your purpose, values and ambitions. Focusing on the outcomes you want to achieve.

Increasing your choices. We help you identify new ways to move forward.

Increase personal awareness. Gain new insight and self-awareness of behaviours that might be holding you back.   

Increase personal responsibility. We use the art and science of coaching psychology to encourage you to take more control over your actions.

Realising your potential. Achieve positive outcomes that will make the biggest impact on your work and personal life. The favourite part of our job is celebrating your success.

“I stumbled upon Rachael by coincidence through a recommendation from a colleague. I had never had a formal coach, so didn’t really know what to expect, and I was blown away by Rachael’s capabilities. She knows exactly which questions to ask to get you thinking and helps point you into the right direction if you get stuck without imposing herself.”

Your Trusted Advisors.

We work with you as a trusted advisor, providing a confidential environment to organise your thoughts. We do not judge, impose or assume we are the ‘expert’ in what is best for you. Instead we use the art and science of psychology in practical ways to support you to create your own success.
