Coaching for Women


As a Professionally Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coach Federation and drawing on my Registered Nursing leadership experience and my Masters Degree in Adult Education, I combine Executive/Leadership Coaching, facilitation and supervision to help people develop into the leaders they want to be. I work with both emerging and established leaders at all levels, as they transition towards their personal leadership development goals, impact positive cultures and wellbeing in the workplace and effectively manage change.

I also specialise in Women and Leadership. Recognising that women lead in many roles across our lives. As a result, my leadership work with women encompasses and is applied to self, family and community as well as to work. I help women develop the interpersonal and leadership skills that are critical to succeed in both professional and private life. I also help older women who are at a career crossroads work out how to achieve their purpose through meaningful work as they head towards retirement and beyond.


  • Executive coaching

  • Leadership coaching for women
  • Career coaching for women over 45 years of age

My practice draws from a range of methodologies and theories which include:

  • Appreciative Inquiry
  • Leadership theory
  • Coaching Models
  • Change theory
  • Facilitation
  • Human behavioural models


The reasons a leader or their manager generally seeks coaching include:

  • An emergent leader new to a role: coaching is to help them set goals and develop leadership capabilities
  • Leaders of dysfunctional teams who need support and to build their skills and capabilities
  • Leaders who request coaching support in addition to manger support to reach a goal or solve a problem (e.g. to manage a bullying issue)
  • Leaders at middle manager and executive level who are undertaking leadership development education and choose, or are provided with coaching to help them embed learning and apply new behaviours in the work place
  • High level leaders who plan to make significant changes to work practices and / or to workplace culture


How Leadership Coaching Works with Person Centred Leadership

My coaching philosophy is that we each have the resources within us that we need to achieve our goals and my role is to connect you to your resources as you build on existing or build new capabilities. I work in a person centred way, seeking to understand and work with people in a collaborative way. I don’t ‘tell too’, rather, I help people find their own solutions (although if you don’t know what you don’t know at any time, I will help you out!). I approach both coaching and life from a positive psychology perspective in which wellbeing is really important. The wellbeing definition I like is from Martin Seligman and includes, experiencing positive emotions, feeling engaged, having positive relationships, finding meaning and accomplishing things.

Coaching is from a strengths perspective and is both behaviour and strategy focused according to your identified needs. I focus on outcomes and am supportive while providing a level of challenge that will help you achieve the leadership development changes that you are looking for. Before we begin working together we will find out together the coaching approach and level of challenge that best suits you.

Together we will determine the coaching style you prefer and I regularly seek feedback to ensure I am adding value to you and you are happy with your coaching.

The number of sessions required varies from person to person and together, over time, we will determine the optimum number for you.

As a rough guide, six sessions take between 3 and 6 months to complete

You will not be locked into a package and if at any time either of us believes that the relationship is not working, either can terminate it.

All coaching begins with an evaluation or assessment of where you currently are in the area of focus you have chosen for coaching which is followed by a session that focuses on goal setting.

Organisations and individuals have a choice of assessment / evaluation methodologies which Person Centred Leadership will recommend after an initial complementary consultation. These include:

  • Clifton Strengths Finder and
  • Open 360 degree feedback (customisable) or
  • Extended DISC

All coachees have access to unlimited email contact with me during business hours and are provided with resources according to need and interest throughout the coaching relationship.
