Positive review in Time Out magazine


I have historically attracted many from marketing and creative fields, who have been drawn to working with me because I come from these backgrounds myself.

Today, Walk on Waves Coaching serves the needs of marketers and creative thinkers in companies. We have extended our services to cater for ethical and caring organisations and those who seek to be, as well as other leaders in organisations and executives who are drawn to our approach.

Executives that excel, as well as business results that excel, is what our coaching delivers over and over again. Not only that but our clients keep telling us they have never been happier!

In her own words

I am the founder of Walk on Waves . I am a holistic executive coach (which means I support my clients with both their professional and personal needs). I bring over 25 years of business and personal development experience to coaching. My background spans advertising sales and marketing; commercial radio and sales promotion; and counselling and group facilitation. I founded and ran my own successful marketing agency and I have led personal development workshops in relationships, coaching and in "emotional intelligence".

I have coached in front of 1.5 million people on ITV's most popular day time programme, and have also appeared on ITV2. My tips for success in business have been broadcast on radio to 25 markets in the US. I write for Natural Health Magazine as The Soul Doctor and The Life Coach contributing a page addressing readers' life challenges every month. I have also pioneered the use of self-healing coaching to help people reduce or overcome the symptoms of long-standing or so-called incurable conditions.

I hold a Management Sciences degree (BSc Hons) and a Diploma in Group Facilitation (Emotional Intelligence). I am a certified counsellor (CCST) and a certified coach (Results Coaching Systems, Australia). The Results training forms part of the University of Portsmouth's MSC in Coaching and Development.

I have also received a Mastery in Coaching from Newfield Network, USA. The highly-acclaimed Newfield training is accredited by the International Coach Federation.

I am also a mentor coach for executive and personal coaches and am currently training for a Diploma in Coaching Supervision with the CSA
