About me

I’m a leadership coach who works with leaders and managers to help them deliver their best work. I support clients to build on their strengths, enabling them to manage challenge, influence at all levels, build successful relationships and ultimately deliver brilliant work whilst feeling really confident about their impact.

I provide a range of services to support leaders and managers including 1-1 executive or leadership coaching (with clients from CEOs to first line managers), team coaching for teams of all sizes to help groups of employees work effectively together and bespoke management and leadership programmes to support groups of managers to skill up and succeed. These can be anything from 6 month – 1 year programmes to one off resilience webinars, all in service of delivering practical tools and inspiring, useful content.

With twenty years of experience, as leadership coach, learning and development professional and fundraising events manager, my approach is to quickly get to the core of what will enable change to happen. We then get on with the important work of getting you the results you want to see. For larger projects or those requiring specific technical expertise I work with a range of very talented associates

I’m based in Sheffield and make regular trips to London for face to face client work, however around 80% of my work is virtual and I’m experienced in online coaching & facilitation.

I’m accredited to Professional Certified Coach level with the International Coaching Federation which means I’ve approximately 700 coaching hours behind me, hundreds of hours of coach-specific training in team coaching, career coaching and leadership coaching with a variety of tutors. It also means I abide by the ICF’s strict code of ethics. I’m also Emotions and Behaviours at Work practitioner – a powerful tool to help individuals and team learn more about they show up and, crucially, how they can develop new approaches for when their natural style isn’t working!

I’d gladly recommend Jen to others looking for support in building international teams capability to work together. Thanks Jen

Sessions with Jen are fantastic! I always felt I came away from each session having been really understood, supported as well as challenged with clear actions to help me move forward in a positive way. Have recommended her to many a friend  already and would certainly look to have future coaching sessions with her.

Coaching has helped me focus on key organisational challenges that I need to respond to, and how best to mobilise my resources and influence to support change. At the same time it has helped me to reflect on my own personal and professional journey, and the kind of role/s I should be playing both now and in the future. I’ve found it an invaluable source of insight, peer support, and reflection – and I know it has improved my performance as a leader and manager.

As a freelancer, I started sessions with Jen to provide a supportive space to think about the bigger picture and reflect on the year’s work. My sessions have been fun, thought provoking and have directly impacted on the way I develop my business. Jen’s motivating and positive approach helped me gain new insight, drive and confidence.

I’ve been in multiple group workshops hosted by Jen and enjoyed each and every one. Frequently inspires me to think outside the box in regards to my freelance work ethic and personal development. Highly recommended!

Jen is amazing at her job. I found the help and guidance she gave incredibly powerful. She gave me a different perspective on life and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
