I am an enthusiastic and experienced leadership coach, facilitator and consultant with 35 years of commercial experience working in and with blue-chip companies, public sector and charities. 

I developed my passion for making a difference to individuals and teams whilst working in BT, where I worked for 20 years.


I started coaching in 2003 after graduating from a psychology degree and started delivering coaching and training professionally in 2006 when I left BT to set up my own L& D Consultancy.


I believe in the capacity of my clients to dig deep into their own internal wisdom to create solutions, ideas and goals that are inspiring and highly effective for them, their teams and their organisations. I like to create a safe, trusting and honest environment of compassion, exploration and positive challenge in which my clients feel open and excited in sharing, discussing and developing ideas, concepts and strategies. 


I am known for my passion for people performance; rigorously raising the aspirations of my clients and holding the bar high in service of them living a life they are inspired by.

In 2018, Sukhy designed, built and delivered Mitra’s Future Leaders Programme for 30 leaders.  

This comprehensive 6-month programme consisted of performance and leadership training and one to one and group coaching. Delegate feedback was uniformly positive, many saying it was the best training/coaching they’d had in their careers! 

The programme equipped many of our people to take more senior roles within our organisation.  

Mitra founders were delighted with the content and impact, preparing many of the next generations of leaders within the company.

Sukhy coached me on a Women’s Leadership course at Accenture in summer 2020. The impact of Sukhy’s coaching on me has been that I started to appreciate myself more, understand what kind of leader I want to be and take active steps to realise my vision. I particularly found Sukhy’s coaching valuable during the pandemic when my colleagues and friends have gone into their shells and became more irritable. Sukhy helped me to take myself out of situations and see them completely differently. I surprised myself this week when upon receiving negative feedback instead of dwelling on it, I simply thought that “I do not take advice from people I do not want to be like” and moved on. I credit Sukhy for encouraging this mindset.  Thank you.

Sukhy is a thoughtful and experienced coach who helped to shaped and deliver a Women’s Leadership Programme at Accenture. She is brilliant and tailoring the sessions to the needs of her participants, making them all feel valued and heard and helping their journey to self-improvement through their own thoughts and actions. She is fantastic at focusing on individuals and bringing together groups to form great discussion and it always feels like a great energiser to take part in her sessions! I have been working with Sukhy for over 2 years and I can definitely say that her tools and insights have helped me overcome self-doubt and achieve more in my career than I believed was possible myself.
