A bit about me...
My training and experience
I've a Diploma Personal Coaching 2005.
I'm a Member of the Association for Coaching, have CPD and am insured.
As a Member of the AC I work within their Code of Ethics to give you quality coaching.
How I can help you
I'm a qualified coach. I've been in people-development throughout my career, for over thirty years.
First as a teacher, a mentor, and then as a coach.
I established my coaching business 14 years ago. I have coached hundreds of clients, successfully.
I coach by phone and, when possible, in person. Some clients are overseas and we work by Skype.
I've worked with high-flying city types to parents going back to work, retirees, creatives, and mature students.
Before I trained as a coach
I was an English teacher for over twenty years, teaching teenagers and adults in schools and colleges.
Working with older students I would mentor and support them through career decisions.
You might spot a connection: what makes me tick is helping people fulfil their potential and achieve their goals.
My own midlife career step was to train as a coach and establish my own practice.
I wrote two books - self-help guides - (Secondary School and Leaving Home.)
These were a springboard for journalism - features for all the broadsheets, websites and magazines.
I love writing, when its purpose is to help other people. My writing includes health, wellbeing and careers.
My work now consists of coaching, with some writing and mentoring writers.
Away from work
I enjoy spending time with my two adult children, walking to keep fit, trying to write a novel, and listening to everything on Radio 4.
The coaching I received from Glynis allowed me to review my current situation, take stock and consider the options. Then, to open my eyes to a clear way forward when previously I was muddled and indecisive. RB, Herts
Running the same business for over 20 years, I needed to step back and make some difficult decisions about my next career steps. Glynis was able to coach me through this.. AL, Herts
"Having reached a point where I was able to consider a life change I realised that I didn't know how to go about it. Glynis helped me develop a strategy for identifying what areas I could realistically consider. I now feel I have solid direction. AS Herts
