My clients describe me as a unique blend of warmth and challenge. 

Here’s a selection of senior leaders / organisations I’ve supported with Executive Coaching and Leadership Workshops

Executive Coaching with Jan Wilson, Clinical Lead Musculoskeletal Service, NHS

When I met Andrea, I was overwhelmed by the challenges and complexities of managing a key service in the NHS.

I needed the time and space to think, away from the workplace, so I could clearly express my thoughts and feelings, and consider the impact of my decisions on the patients in my care.

This ‘thinking time’ helped me implement a new, re-designed service and make significant efficiencies. My work was even nominated for awards!

St Mary’s CE Primary School, Slough

When I started working with Andrea, I had lost my confidence, my sense of purpose and felt disillusioned with my role.

Andrea was fabulous. She helped me to unpick the exact things that were causing me to be stressed and regain my sense of pride in all I have achieved in my career to date.

Now I’m mostly back to full strength, happier and more fulfilled. People within my team are clearer about what I expect of them and how they need to perform their duties. I feel as though I have got my work-life ratio much more balanced and my family are happier that I’m happier, too!

Honestly, my thanks to Andrea. I really don’t think I would still be doing the job if she hadn’t come along when she did.

 “I really like your flexible style – you’ve truly role modelled a coaching style throughout the programme. I’ve never been on a programme before where I felt in control of my learning. Thank you!”

President at American Advertising Federation
Tampa Bay

 I started working with Andrea when I was struggling to find a focus in my career.  Deep down, I knew I needed a change but without a clear vision, I wasn’t sure which direction to turn.

Together with Andrea, I worked to get a clear understanding of my potential – my skills, strengths, what I do well and what I enjoy.

With this understanding, I identified my next steps. It wasn’t long before I was accepted for a new role.

If you need to challenge yourself or if you have a specific goal in mind, then I recommend you engage Andrea to support you in achieving it.

She provides a unique blend of warmth and directness. My confidence in my professional abilities grew enormously under Andrea’s direction and I was able to deliver my best presentation to date, and to secure the new role I wanted.

If you’re looking for an easy option, then Andrea isn’t for you – but if you are looking for real challenge, support and success then she most definitely is.

“When we commissioned Andrea to run a workshop on ‘What makes you tick?’ the staff team was facing uncertainty, reduction in resources but ongoing demands for service delivery and change continued. The lack of motivation was starting to have an impact on staff morale and service development.

The workshop was so eloquently delivered and pitched exactly right for my team! Andrea gave colleagues time to focus on themselves as individuals, identifying their strengths and exploring what makes them tick and what gives them energy at work.

Through appreciating how their self-doubts and fears are getting in the way of them giving their all, the team came away with increased ownership and accountability and an appreciation of the importance of assigning quality time to focus on themselves.

Thank you so much for today! I would definitely like Andrea to do some follow-up work with the team.”
