I have always been passionate about working with and developing people which is why I naturally fell into HR, ultimately specialising in talent management, leadership development, coaching and mentoring. In senior HR leadership positions, I was able to champion development and drive key talent & engagement initiatives.
After completing my coach training with Lucy & Sonya and discovering the world of NLP, I quit my career of 18 years in HR to set up Talenta - Coaching & Consultancy. I was blown away by the power of coaching and the ability to help people become 'unstuck' and lead more fulfilling lives.
I particularly enjoy working with professional women to help them break through self-limiting beliefs and/or imposter syndrome for increased confidence and greater career & personal fulfilment. This is something I struggled with at various stages in my career but was able to move forward as a result of coaching & mentoring. I use a broad range of coaching & NLP techniques, and NLP breakthrough days to eliminate negative emotions and self-limiting beliefs.
My coaching style is strengths-based, often focused on mindset, positive psychology and developing resilience.
I've been so lucky to benefit from fantastic coaching & mentoring support over the years so I am committed to paying it forward - I am currently an Association for Coaching Co-coaching Forum Facilitator, a mentor for Virgin Startups & for Wiseup and a Trustee for a multi-academy trust.
