About Stephanie

My background

I have always been fascinated by change.  After studying Chemistry (described as the science of change!) at University, I spent 14 years in the water and telecoms industries working with directors and senior managers on behavioural and business change. I could see the difference it made when people acknowledged their values and motivations and trusted their feelings and intuition. In 2010 I set up my own coaching business to work with intelligent professionals who want to make a change without sacrificing who they are or what’s most important to them

How I work

Dare to be you

We are generally conditioned to focus on process, logic, facts and figures and to ignore or even distrust emotion, gut instinct and intuition. By ignoring the“fluffy stuff”, we miss out on so much and, when we’re facing significant change, we realise we need to draw on something more. I combine conversation, powerful questions and exercises to help clients rediscover their fullest capabilities.

Who I work with

Get unstuck

I work with intelligent individuals who know they want to make a change but feel stuck. We often begin by talking about work and, because coaching is about the person, we soon expand to discuss wider aspects of their lives. When they acknowledge, and respect their values, motivations and instincts, they can tackle decisions and create the changes they want both in and outside work.

What my clients say

Small change, Big difference

"Amazing experience that I always come away from with greater clarity about myself."
Richard, Programme Director, Sept 2021
"Definitely do it. Stephanie is very good at helping you work through some of the challenges you maybe facing, picking up on what you don't say as well as what you are saying. I feel a lot more equipped to take my career forward."
Amanda, Senior Manager, Retail, June 2021
"Just do it! Stephanie is a fabulous coach, very skilled at encouraging good thinking; she challenged me as we had agreed, and helped me to really focus on what I wanted."
Susan, Senior Leader, Higher Education, May 2021
"It has been a great experience, I have been meaning and and wanting to engage in coaching for a number of years and it was incredibly helpful and rewarding."
David, M&A Director, May 2021
"I would 100% recommend Stephanie as a coach. As somebody that was a bit cynical of the benefits, I am completely converted. Stephanie has great skill in putting you at ease and helping you to open up, whilst coaching you to recognise the solutions yourself. She also offered some great tips how to create space for reflection and moving forward with confidence."
Jo, Programme Manager, IT, April 2021
"She has wonderful intuition that lets her guide her questioning. She knows when to challenge to get to the heart of the problem and follow up which ensures that every aspect of the doubt and fear you may be thinking has been processed. The session was exactly the turning point I needed to make a big change in my life. Not only that - it left me excited to think about what's beyond that. I have no hesitation in recommending Stephanie - she is one of the best!"
Claire Hewitson, Copenhagen Business School, April 2021
"Stephanie reminded me what is important about my work life, what makes me enjoy it and give my best everyday. She has given me back my confidence at work and a renewed vigour to go out and get what makes me happy. Thank you Steph for helping me find my work mojo again!"
Senior Manager, Utilities, April 2021
"I completed 6 sessions with Stephanie and can honestly say she changed my perspective on my thinking, the way I worked with my team and managed delegating work, positioning myself within the company to be the "marketing expert", she helped me create a work relationship with my director so I had his respect and friendship and more importantly growing in my own confidence and creating my own life 10 year plan"
Senior Manager, Marketing, December 2020
