Able to take charge and build rapport quickly, I bring empathy, honesty, clarity and warmth to my coaching, and clients notice a difference from their first session. I am experienced at helping my clients develop greater self-awareness and a better understanding of how to realise their individual purpose, strengths and values in order to lead with authenticity and achieve their goals. As well as improving their resilience, their ability to manage stress, and avoid burnout, they also learn how to spot and manage their own “trigger” points and work out how to get back on track when things go wrong. 


My coaching helps clients bring a sharper focus to their priorities, enabling them to make a greater impact at work. The result is improved productivity and improved performance. My clients feel more motivated, have greater control over their own emotions and know how to dial up their strengths.


I became a coach after a 22-year career in PR & Communications. I’ve been part of Executive Teams, reported to CEOs and led high performing teams. Business School educated, I know what it’s like to work in a fast-paced business, to have targets, multiple stakeholders and to navigate complex operating environments. This experience helps me understand what organisations – and the people who work in them – are experiencing and enables me to help my clients succeed.


Throughout my career, I have worked both consultancy side and as an in-house Communications Director for a variety of listed, private and not-for-profit organisations. My roles include Director of Communications for media group Hearst UK, Director of the National Lottery’s Good Causes arm, and Group Head of External Communications for pensions and investment business, Royal London. I also worked as a director for an executive search firm, working with global C-suite clients. 

Lisa's coaching is gentle but firm, and insightful.  She asks the questions that make you address issues, problems, questions, and then helps you work towards the answers or improved scenarios.  She makes you work and holds you accountable.   Her coaching was key to helping me move away from - and work through - a very bad career experience.   She made me acknowledge and 'combat' my inner saboteurs, and basically helped me to re-calibrate and rebuild.

You come out of the sessions feeling really positive - her coaching really gives you a chance to re-root with the fabric of yourself, what makes you you, what you need for sustainable, long term contentment. The sessions challenge you; but you leave totally reinvigorated and uplifted – each session opens my mind and perspectives, inspiring new sparks – new things I’d like to achieve, routes I’d like to pursue and directions I’d like to go in.

Lisa has had a transformative effect on my professional and personal life.  Sometimes it has been uncomfortable placing a magnifying glass on parts of my life, but I have found it refreshing to have a new perspective and see my life through a new lens. Her coaching has unearthed confidence in me which has helped me to manage life’s unexpected challenges.
