I’m dedicated to helping further the coaching profession in any way I can, taking every opportunity to share my experience, to collaborate and to co-create with my fellow professionals.

I am a member of both the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and The Association for Coaching (AC). I am also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). In each of these bodies I am involved in the development of the profession.

Coaches need support too

To help promote the highest professional standards, I provide both individual and group coaching supervision.

My work in this area includes:

  • Supervising students doing Post Graduate qualifications. Creating coaching supervision partnerships with others.
  • Training in specific coaching techniques.
  • Developing and presenting new coaching supervision concepts.
  • Mentoring other coaches.
  • Associate Lecturer at Oxford Brookes University.
  • Contributing to academic work in books and articles.

What my clients say

  • “Working with Carol has enabled me to step back from my work and take a broader view of my practice. I’ve been able to get a fresh perspective on the challenges I face in my client sessions, which has allowed me to develop at a faster pace than I ever could on my own.”

    David Pilbeam, Leadership Trainer and Business Coach

  • “Carol is a model for collaborative working. She is extremely professional and shares her knowledge and contacts with grace.”

    Jenny Plaister-Ten, Global Cross-Cultural Coach

  • “Carol is a caring, totally professional and self-effacing coach who never lets her own agenda get in the way of doing a great job for clients. Integrity, passion and a very, very high work rate... An unreserved recommendation.”

    John Donnelly, Executive Coaching and Leadership Speaker

  • “Carol is a widely experienced coach who, through a generous and collaborative style, always brings out the best in people. I’ve found her insightful and enabling in her approach.

    Peter Mayes, Executive and Team Coach

  • “Carol is a consummate professional who combines a high level of coaching skills with a deep knowledge and experience of Human Resource processes.”
