It’s not what others think about us that limits our achievements. It’s what we think they think. Coaching brings the confidence that comes from being our true selves

''Lives get busier by the day – or the hour. Just ‘doing the job’ is an ever-increasing challenge.''
Because you want your organisation and the people inside it to achieve more, but you’re not sure how?
Sometimes, organisations and individuals need a little help. Corporate structures become more complex. Expectations and pressures grow continually, at all levels. Lives get busier by the day – or the hour. Just ‘doing the job’ is an ever-increasing challenge. The ‘hard skills’ of constant professional development and delivery are daunting enough to keep up with.
Yet there is a growing sense of ‘something missing’; a feeling that we could be more effective as a whole organisation and as managers and leaders; that we could and should be achieving a greater return on the human capital that is our biggest asset.
"Creative Coaching exists to turn uncertainties, obstacles and frustrations into new organisational dynamics, personal skills, enhanced communication ability and real development as high performing organisations, leaders, managers and individuals."
Transform: “We need to be more collaborative and productive as an organisation” and “I want and need to perform more effectively as a leader”…
into: “We function more coherently as a unit with a shared sense of purpose” and “I understand my skills and strengths and I know how to use them to inspire myself and others”.
Creative Coaching exists to turn uncertainties, obstacles and frustrations into new organisational dynamics, personal skills, enhanced communication ability and real development as high performing organisations, leaders, managers and individuals.
We work in challenging situations across a wide spectrum of Organisational Development, Group and Team Facilitation, Executive Coaching, Senior Management and Board Development and 1 to 1 Coaching.
We work with a variety of techniques, such as neuro linguistic programming, transactional analysis, coaching methodologies, MBTI, Insights Discovery, improvisational theatre and psychological models. Importantly, we never shoehorn any solution into a problem. We seek to understand the driving needs of our clients and develop solutions that really will shift an issue for them. Work that counts is what is critical to us.
We work towards outcomes that overcome perceived personal limitations, team based disconnections and organisation-wide silos.
Our philosophy is simple and powerful: “No transactions only transformations”. We put it into action by applying our core beliefs: our greatest assets are our clients and their natural abilities; our greatest advantage is our team of passionate, proven and predictably successful coaching practitioners.
Wherever you are on your journey to real understanding of your aspirations and true development of your leadership skills and your organisation’s human talent, we can help.
This is difficult to write
I’ve had a tough few years…relationship break ups, international moves, disrupted business, the culmination of which landed me with depression for the second time in my life. A therapist once told me (in my first battle with this illness) that I was a high functioning depressive – because I could get up, get dressed, work, and appear to all intents and purposes like I was ‘normal’ (whatever that is). Certainly, I gave the impression of coping. Then, as now, though I have had an internal battle with why I should even bother to remain ‘here’ – on earth, alive…

It was a lie…
I was lucky growing up! I was taught from an early age that everyone matters. There was no prejudice in my home. We had friends visit and music played by people from all walks of life. This was in the 60s, 70s and early 80s.
In the mid 70s I started secondary school. I went to a south east London comprehensive that had a fifty-fifty black/white mix of kids. I was surrounded by, and part of, a rich cultural heritage. I came to believe that this was a ‘normal’ representation of how life would be … I was wrong!
