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.
How I can help you
I established my coaching business fourteen years ago. Since then, I've coached hundreds of clients across the UK and overseas.
Before I trained as a coach, I was an English teacher for many years, working with teenagers and adults in schools and colleges.
Working with older students meant I was often involved in mentoring them and supporting them through career decisions.
You might spot a connection: what makes me tick is helping people fulfil their potential and achieve their goals.
Chasing my own ambition
A few years ago I decided to work on a life-long ambition: writing.
I wrote two self-help parenting books. These were a springboard for writing features. I've written 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 mainly on relationships, family and health.
I'm also working on a novel, which is my next goal.
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
