Emma works with individuals and groups who are ready to take action and create positive changes. Her coaching draws on nearly 20 years experience in HR roles across Financial Services, Pharmaceuticals and Technology industries and she is passionate about enabling people to confidently achieve both personal and professional success. Alongside leadership development, Emma also has a strong interest in supporting clients to achieve personal resilience and wellbeing, and recently trained as a mindfulness teacher.
Emma’s eclectic approach to coaching is empathetic, enthusiastic and focussed on positive and practical solutions. She is supportive and honest whilst challenging her clients to search deeper and take risks for both personal growth and transformation. She provides a safe (and at times fun!) space for reflection, challenge, action planning and support.
Emma enjoys a full and busy life with a young family and collection of pets! She is a keen cook with a special interest in nutrition and loves reading, films, travel and long walks with her dog Coco.
Her mindful approach to life along with her 6am personal training sessions help her keep her own sense of personal wellbeing and balance.
