Coaching Style

Emma has a highly empathic and intuitive approach to coaching which provides her with insights into her clients which allows her to challenge them in a fearless and demanding yet encouraging and supportive way.

Each coaching programme is tailored to her individual client’s needs, where they will examine their strengths, development areas, coaching and business objectives using a structured framework which allows them to develop relevant and achievable action plans leading to significant results. Emma combines perceptiveness and empathy with a strong pragmatic and business focus.

“Clients describe me as being open and challenging within a highly supportive and constructive framework. I bring objectivity and structure to a client’s personal and professional development goals, as well as thought-provoking insights.

"Emma is a fantastic coach. She made me feel at ease and someone I could easily speak with. She was great in challenging the decisions I had made and actions I had taken in the past to assess my strengths. The sessions were focussed and the resulting objectives tangible."
