My Most Requested Topics

Confidence at Work Slide Confidence at Work – Confidence is one of those concepts that everyone instinctively understands, but if you ask people to define it, you get a variety of answers. We all intuitively know that confidence matters and that a lack of it impedes professional effectiveness and career progression as well as personal well-being and satisfaction.  Those who lack confidence tend to play it safe, avoid taking risks and rising to new challenges and new situations. All of which is likely to decrease an individual’s chances of reaching his or her full potential leaving both the organisation and the individual poorer as a consequence.

Perfectionism Speaker SlideWhy Perfectionism Doesn’t Pay – The issues connected to perfectionism are closely associated with organisations and employees who aspire to deliver work at the highest possible standards. Yet perfectionists, with their high levels of anxiety, reluctance to delegate, and fear of disapproval can create organisational and team tensions while frequently finding the transition to management and executive roles particularly challenging.


Cognitive Behavioural Coaching SlideCognitive Behavioural Coaching – Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC) is a Coaching Model that enables individuals to use a range of strategies to identify and challenge self-defeating thinking and behaviours as well as develop effective problem solving skills.
CBC is an approach strongly linked to achieving measurable outcomes with a robust behavioural contracting process. It has been used successfully with teams, individuals and to deal with a range of coaching issues.

Resilience at Work Speaker SlideResilience at Work – What is resilience and why is it an important factor in today’s uncertain economic climate? How does resilience enhance confidence, creativity and increase individual stamina? What benefits do organizations gain from having a resilient workforce? With employee engagement a key factor in driving success and with reducing stress related absence. With clinical conditions such as depression and anxiety on the increase, coaching can help individuals and organizations ensure they meet the challenges of 21st century by ensuring the well-being of individuals and improving individual and team interactions.

Positive Profits Speaker SlidePositive Profits – Positive Psychology has an evidence base and takes a scientifically informed perspective about what works and what makes life worth living. It considers the value of identifying and working to individual strengths and the skills required for developing and maintaining a position of excellence, while ensuring that psychological health is maintained and increased even under difficult circumstances. When individuals use their strengths and develop ways to overcome and/or manage their limitations this has a positive effect not only for the individual but for the organizations they work for. A productive and creative workforce is a key to adding to the bottom line.


MBCC SlideMindfulness Based Cognitive Coaching – Mindfulness Based Cognitive Coaching (MBCC) is the latest development that draws upon the strategies of Mindfulness Based approaches and the skills and methodology of Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC). MBCC is applied to client groups who do not fall within the medical or therapeutic client arenas. It is used in individual coaching programmes as well as within a group context within organizations to increase individual resilience, creativity and productivity with proven psychological and physical benefits.
