Want some Time to think?

Often as a leader you are expected to have all the answers... but what if you are feeling a little blocked?


Are you having a little dip in confidence or creativity...? You know exactly how to help others... but not yourself! 

In these difficult times, lots of people are involved in problems and conversations they never thought they would experience. I believe that these challenging situations can bring out the best in people. However, when we are in the problem, it can feel difficult to use the same thinking process to make your way out of it.

I offer a very different type of 1-2-1 coaching – Time To Think™ Thinking Environment which really suits exceptional leaders and entrepreneurs. By creating the conditions for thinking, I help bring your sublime thoughts to life, and get you to the heart of what matters quickly. I hold the space for you to go where you need to go, achieve what you want to achieve, and give you some much deserved thinking time to work through your challenges.

If you would like to find out more about me and my work or have a free 30 minute consultation drop me a message below.

Working with me...

For personal coaching I have always struggled with the idea of a fixed price. So I have usually offered a 'pay what you can afford' pricing scheme, but often I would be asked to name a price range. So below I offer a range in which to give transparency and accessibility without under pricing the value I offer.

Individually funded: £125 - £250 'Pay what you can afford' per session + VAT

For company funded coaching please get in contact to discuss your budget.

You can have as many or as few sessions as you like and can decide this as we progress. Alternatively, you may chose up front to schedule a series of sessions.

Sessions may last anywhere between 60-120 minutes depending on what we are working on and we will negotiate this between us. 


It is important to me my coaching is accessible for all, so if you are unable to afford the prices above due to personal financial difficulties then please get in touch and we can discuss alternative options.
