I coach doctors to achieve enhanced performance in their professional and personal life, specialities include:-

  • Confidence and self-belief
  • Personal resilience and stress management
  • Mindset and behaviour change
  • Self-awareness

I offer the following services to help them to achieve this:

Coaching & NLP

Offered on a one to one basis, either in person or via Zoom/Skype. The service includes a post-session summary. I offer access to speed coaching outside of planned sessions.

What is coaching?

I use a range of skills to enable the individual to solve their own problems. This is skilfully achieved through goal setting and outcome formation, active listening, non-judgemental enquiry, reflection, asking questions so as to see a different perspective and overcome barriers to change.

What is NLP and how can it benefit you?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is:

  • ‘Neuro’, the brain and nervous system-how the mind and sensory organs receive and filter information through all 5 senses.
  • ‘Linguistic’ the way we communicate and interpret experience through language, including body language, images, sounds, feelings, taste, smells as well as words. The language we use with others and our own self talk can have a profound impact on thinking and behaviour.
  • ‘Programming’ is how we construct personal ‘programmes’; the unconscious habits and patterns of behaviour of how we think, how we behave and how we do things.

NLP is like a clinical manual for the brain and when NLP techniques are applied it allows you to think and behave differently and be more confident and effective. As an NLP Master Practitioner, I will enable you to create a new skill set that helps you develop excellence in all areas of your life.

NCAS Action Plans

I coach doctors requiring additional support and consultants on NHS Resolution (NCAS) Action plans attaining successful outcomes. I have a wealth of experience in talent management, leadership development, behaviour and change management to achieve sustainable improvement and growth.

MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator)

I offer MBTI test and feedback sessions.  MBTI is the most widely used psychometric in the world. It provides a framework to gain a deeper understanding of personal preferences and interactions with others and can be applied to personal and business settings. I use MBTI feedback as a tool for individual and team development and coaching and to facilitate specific MBTI-based individual consultations.


As a Practitioner of Hypnosis, my focus for these sessions is specifically to teach individuals how to reduce stress and anxiety around exams and interviews, using self-hypnosis techniques.

ABNLP Practitioner

I offer 1 to 2-day coach skills training for consultants and clinical supervisors.


I deliver facilitation and sessional workshops at conferences; Grand rounds; Service and departmental meetings: development, training and education sessions on a number of bespoke subjects tailored to the needs of each Trust or area.

Coaching Supervision

I offer individual and small group coach supervision, within organisations with internal coaches, or independent and self-employed coaches.

What is coaching supervision?

Coaching Supervision provides formal opportunity for coaches one-to-one or in a group to share in confidence their emergent issues when working with clients with the aim of better work in-service to their clients.

Supervisors work with coaches who in their professional capacity are deeply influential in working with clients navigating life-changing transformation. Supervision provides a safe haven to reflect and review practice, to refine tools and techniques, to explore the potential interventions and test ideas, to refresh and polish their coaching repertoire and to extend/ stretch coaching capabilities.
