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. During those years I have coached hundreds of clients, successfully.
I coach by phone and, when possible, in person. Some of my clients are overseas and we work by Skype.
I've worked with everyone from 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 meant 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 was asked by a publisher to write two books - self-help guides - (Secondary School and Leaving Home.)
These were a springboard for my writing- features for all the broadsheets, websites and magazines.
I love writing, when its purpose is to help other people, so I've widened the topics I cover to include 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
