A bit about me...
My training and experience
Let's get the formal part out of the way.
Established in 2005, this is my 14th year as a coach. (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.
My career history
I've been in people-development for decades. I taught English for many years, always to older students and adults, including in a college where some students were ex-offenders trying to get back into the world of work. Teaching older students meant I was often involved in their career and employment decisions.
I reached a fork in the road and decided, for various reasons, that although I loved teaching I didn't want carry on to retirement.
So coaching seemed a natural progression- helping people fulfil their potential.
Chasing my own ambition
At around the same time, I decided to work on a life-long ambition: writing.
I wrote two self-help parenting books. These were a springboard for writing features. For several years I wrote features on careers, education and parenting for The Times, Guardian, Telegraph and i newspapers, as well as websites and magazines. I write features occasionally now for broadsheets and websites.
I offer writing coaching and mentoring to anyone with any writing ambitions, whether you are complete beginner or experienced writer. Mentoring includes journalism, non-fiction and all your writing ambitions.
Away from work
I enjoy spending time with my two adult children, walking to keep fit, trying to write a novel, and listening to anything and 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
