About Me...
Inspiring Leader Philosophy diagram

One December Thursday in 2008, I was sitting in a Cafe Nero for a pre-work coffee with two of my fellow managers, ahead of a big fundraising event. I knew my talented events team was going to deliver. I knew I’d personally delivered events on a far larger scale, with bigger budgets and bigger targets before. And yet, I was so stressed that morning, that, cappuccino in hand, I simply burst into tears.

Why? Because I didn’t feel trusted, I felt under scrutiny, I was attempting to shield my team from impending restructure so they could get on and do their jobs, so with my closest colleagues my confidence and calm just cracked.

I knew from past roles what a truly supportive work culture could feel like and I vowed then I’d find it again. I left, but returned shortly after into a learning & development role where I was empowered to learn and create, and I thrived, supporting leaders in many countries to build the skills, confidence and practical strategies to succeed.

Since then I’ve worked with leaders in a diverse range of organisations including the UN refugee agency, HSBC, Department for Education, law firms, tech start ups and small charities, helping leaders thrive when resources are tight. Not only do I cut through the noise to quickly work out what is really going on for clients, partnering with them to get them where they want to be, but I’m also sought out to support clients process the emotional fallout, like the one I led experienced in 2008, from difficult work situations and relationships which dent their confidence and make work feel stressful.

Coaching with me is inspiring and practical, non-judgemental and joyful, where emotions are not only welcomed but they are encouraged, because on the other side of the tricky stuff is YOU – the calm, confident and creative leader.

And if it's qualifications you are after...

I’ve been coaching a long time (since 2011) and have a huge bank of experience working with leaders caught in the middle: directors, heads of team and CEOs navigating board relationships. I have qualifications in leadership, team and career coaching as well as neuroscience, mental health first aid and emotional freedom technique (known as EFT or tapping.)

I’m currently studying to be a resilience dynamic practitioner so I can bring even more tools to support clients manage their energy, reduce negative stress and create environments where they and their teams can thrive.


As a professional certified coach with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) I abide by an ethical code, and attend regular supervision. I also mentor newer coaches working towards qualifications and I’m invited to hold guest lectures at Sheffield University Management School to post-graduate HR students.

If you have any questions about how coaching works, what coaching qualifications involve, or whether working with me is right for you or a team member, please get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.

I would highly recommend Jen! She helped me work through some complex questions with the perfect-for-me mix of empathy and humour, and shared valuable tools and techniques that have boosted my confidence and skills. Sessions were thoughtful, creative and inspiring, and I always left feeling energised and optimistic. This was my first experience of coaching and before we started I was honestly a bit sceptical, but working with Jen has enabled me to achieve far more than I thought I could.

Jen has an amazing ability to be able to shape sessions in just the way you need- creating the right space and conversation to get to the point, and bringing you back to what you want to do, can do to improve and achieve what you want. For me, this has often been about my emotions and feelings about myself in the workplace, and I’ve really appreciated the balance between exploring and challenging where those emotions weren’t helping and also helping me with real things I know I can do to build my confidence and focus on the real pleasure I get from my job.

My sessions with Jen have been nothing short of amazing. Before each session I begin feeling like I have a huge mountain to climb but at the end I come out with a clear map and a way around the mountain that feels much easier to navigate. From channelling my inner super hero to learning about EFT there are so many things that Jen has taught me that I can now keep in my coaching toolkit to help me prepare for those difficult conversations or meetings. Jen is the coaching superhero you didn't know you needed until now, she can help you recognise and unleash your very own set of superhero skills so you can be prepared for whatever the world of work may throw at you!
