I’ve always had a passion for psychology, business and people. Put that together and my career seems to make sense. I’ve constantly worked since I was 13 years old, everything from a post office junior, a retail advisor, window salesman, a play worker, front of house in a nightclub, bar maid, youngest landlady in the country, and all that by the age of 21 years. (I’m clearly a bit older now), since then I have worked in corporate recruitment, fast tracking promotions due to the success of my teams, managed wide varieties of people, offices and locations to tight budgets and targets,enjoying great success. After embarking upon a family it was clear that work life balance left little choice other than to set up my own business in recruitment, working closely with SME’s and their leaders, I found myself spending more time working with the business leaders helping them to create and achieve the changes within their companies and less time on recruitment. It was a natural progression to change the business from recruitment to coaching and therapy, undertake further education and now my recruitment clients are coaching ad therapy clients, with fantastic results to show for it.
I clearly have a love of work, a love of learning, a love of people, and a love of business.
A good education, with a Psychology honours degree from the University of Birmingham, followed by a post grad DMS to increase my general business knowledge. My psychology and interest in people and business encouraged an understanding that you cannot separate mental health from work and to support my business clients and employees I undertook further studying to qualify in a range of psychotherapies, (see myexceptionallife.co.uk for my individual and business therapy offerings) so I can help individuals and employees with personal issues that ultimately impact their performance at work. Finally, if that’s not enough for you I have completed the NLP Practitioner, NLP coach and NLP master practitioner qualifications to ensure that my clients get the best. I aim to always learn from every opportunity and to develop people that I work with.
