About Denise

From manager to entrepreneur to coach

Before setting up her coaching business, Denise had a successful 20-year management career working for large corporate organisations such as Royal Sun Alliance and Bank of America. She then trained with the Coaches Training Institute in 2010 and went on to qualify as a Certified Professional Co-active Coach (CPCC) the following year. She also holds Professional Certified Coach (PCC) status with the International Coach Federation. Over the last decade, Denise has worked with hundreds of people across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors: empowering them to live life to the full both personally and professionally.


Coaching Approach

Denise’s coaching is warm, engaging, empathetic and challenging.

Denise adopts the Co-Active Model in her coaching relationships which simply means ‘being in action…together’. She believes in helping people to build upon their strengths and recognises her clients’ natural resourcefulness. By staying curious and asking the right questions, she trusts that her clients will find the answers to their own questions.

With an innate ability to motivate people, Denise connects and engages with people at all levels. Her clients are stretched to raise their levels of self-awareness, to look at things from new or different perspectives, and to gain a greater understanding as to what’s going on “beneath the surface” so they can move forward.

Coaching is a process of self-discovery and Denise offers a safe and non-judgemental space where clients can identify, explore and overcome the barriers that hold them back from making the changes they want and achieving their full potential. Her guidance helps clients to understand what is really important to them and supports them to create a fulfilling life for themselves in which they fully show up.

The agenda for the coaching sessions comes from the client which means that the coaching is focused on getting the result that the client wants – not what anyone else wants for them!
