Meet the Coaches
People and Their Brilliance employ a number of coaches to deliver employability training once the candidates are in role:
I have been coaching since 2013, largely for the organisation I am employed by, some external clients in the charitable sector and as a volunteer coach for a bereavement service for young people.
I have recently set myself on a mission to offer affordable coaching to people on low incomes who may otherwise not have access to it through the usual channels such as an employee benefit – a work in progress as it coincided with the onset of the pandemic, and becoming increasingly busier in my full-time job as an adviser to nurses and healthcare workers.
My professional life comprises 25 years of experience of working in client-focused roles, largely with vulnerable adults, people with long-term health conditions and disability, and for the past 13 years with healthcare workers in both the NHS and independent sector. I am an organisational coach for my current employer where I work full-time as an adviser. I am a member of the International Coach Federation and hold an NLP practitioner qualification.
I have studied mindfulness in recent years and completed both a Mindfulness CBT course and more recently, a mindfulness-based compassionate living course, something that has been a brilliant resource during the pandemic, and in life generally. Fundamentally, my profession and my passion is people...When I found the advert for this opportunity, it really spoke to my heart and felt like a wonderful opportunity to work with young people looking to harness and demonstrate their strengths, values and brilliance.

Professional Qualifications - MSc Management Science (UMIST/ Manchester School of Management), PG Cert Henley Business School, Level A, MBTI, TA101, 16PF Coaching Approach/Philosophy - my coaching philosophy is one that is centred around ownership and challenge. I am passionate about working with individuals and groups to support them to unlock their own potential, or to work on whatever is holding them back.
Together we work on how you set yourself up for success.
Coaching Style - my style is challenging, and is designed to help you uncover what is holding you back and what they would like to achieve. Coaching is transformational if you allow yourself to engage with it. Your coaching experience with me will be about getting comfortable with the uncomfortable.
Personal Passions - my passion is working with people on authenticity, and what being an authentic person really means. Other topics I work with include Imposter Syndrome, taking responsibility for yourself and your success and self belief.
I am a Learning and Development specialist within a large corporate. I have followed my passion of coaching for the past 15 years having qualified as a Life Coach through Coaches Training Institute. I have coached many people within the corporate over the years and continue to do so. Recently moving to part time hours has allowed me to focus more on building my own coaching business and providing coaching services to the outside world. I have a great interest in really helping people to understand themselves, what makes them special and what they have to offer. I want people to find their inner spark and to live their values.
