Secrets of Success
Professional Performance Coach PPC, NLP,
Certified Practitioner Havening Techniques
Author: Drive Thru Success
I am a Professional Performance Coach who has been practising for over 30 years. I have always endeavoured to enhance my knowledge and skills in order to offer an evidence-based suite of interventions that support my clients to experience the very best in life and business.
In 2019 my daughter Megan completed her suicide, and this set me in a new direction as Chief Executive and lead coach for Megan’s Space. Megan’s Space is a charity that seeks to prevent both self-harm and the needless loss of young lives through the provision of therapeutic interventions as early in a young person’s episode of dysregulation.
In addition to supporting classic anxiety, low mood and trauma we are developing expertise in the areas of Personality Disorder and PMDD.
Consistent with our own experience there is very little being offered that is simple, fast and can be both facilitated and taught in order to allow for self-application. Havening is the answer to all of these needs. I have successfully supported young people and their carers in both one to one and group settings.
I have also used Havening with my executive clients in order to enhance performance by creating and reinforcing positive identity and states and by removing trauma, fear and anxiety.
I am a fast paced and prolific behavioural change leader, performance and therapeutic coach and published author of Drive Thru Success, I am qualified in positive psychology, coaching, mediation, NLP and Havening.
Over my 30 years coaching career I have practised as an operational manager, Organisational Development and Leadership (ODL) change agent and as an Executive Coach. I have also been teaching coaching for 20 years.
I have worked within the private and public sectors, Scottish NHS and government.
During my 20 years as an Organisation Development practitioner I have, in support of the operational sponsor / leader, designed and delivered bespoke solutions to many typical change related challenges:
· Team formation
· Transformational change
· Team recovery post traumatic events
· Team dysfunction
· Mediation between individuals or teams
I am an energised coach who enjoys exploring, with my clients, how to best create and achieve meaningful strategies and objectives with and through their people. Clients frequently comment that I am supportive and challenging, gentle and firm, uplifting and realistic and maybe most importantly I help them achieve their desired outcomes and results.
