I am an Accredited Coach and Accredited Coach Supervisor and I have extensive experience of Executive Coaching, Mentoring and Life coaching, both with individuals and groups, including Health & Wellbeing Coaching. This has included working with people affected by cancer, other chronic illnesses, mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression, and other life impacts and transitions such as separation, divorce and redundancy to name a few. I am passionate about coaching and how it enables people to create insights, make shifts and take control in their thinking and behaviours and create solutions for a better or more fulfilled life.
My passion for coaching has led me to want to support the development of other coaches in all settings through providing Coaching Supervision. My philosophy of supervision is enabling an open working alliance that generates trust and supports reflective thinking, challenge and the development of skills. Seeing and enabling the growth of coach’s skills and personal development through the guided supervisory relationship is both extremely rewarding and necessary in ensuring ethical standards and competence in their coaching practice.

I wanted so much more from life and Geraldine was able to guide me onto the right track In order to fulfil my ultimate life goals and achievements.
I was not dealing with a second cancer diagnosis well mentally until I was able to attend these coaching sessions and benefit from them. The variouscoaching methods really helped me during my cancer rehabilitation. My second experience with cancer was probably more mentally challenging and I believe this coaching was essential to helping me get on top of things.
Geraldine has helped me turn around and transform my life through life coaching. Geraldine recognised how I was limiting myself and only doing the bare minimum and challenged me to do more. She encouraged me to complete additional training and once I completed it I was ready to embark on my new career and begin a new chapter in my life.
