Coaching

If you’re struggling to find a way through your job or responsibilities, maybe a chat about things will help? I’m not a qualified counsellor, but I’m great at asking the right question at the right time, to help you find your way.

When we work together, we’ll start with you, where you are now and where you’d like to be later.

Anyone who runs is a runner, regardless of how fast or how far they go, the size of their trainer collection (you can never have too many though, right?!),…
