Executive Coaching is a thought-provoking, confidential and non-judgemental process that leads to action.

It is a partnership which inspires the individual to maximise their professional and personal potential. Executive Coaching is almost an entirely forward-looking process which helps the individual get from where they are now to where they want to be – and faster than they would do so working on their own.


The role of Denise is to hold a safe and confidential space in which the individual is empowered to be creative and resourceful in finding their own solutions to challenges, taking personal responsibility for actions they take. The agenda for Executive Coaching always comes from the individual and they are always in control and at choice.


Ultimately, Executive Coaching encourages new ways of thinking and invites the individual to view their situation from a different perspective. For organisations dealing with rapid change, reduced budgets and increased workloads, this often leads to greater profitability and increased productivity resulting in a favourable return on investment.


It can help to:

  • Support managers transition into a new role
  • Develop managers stepping up into leadership roles
  • Build confidence in first time managers
  • Support senior leaders through times of rapid change
  • Incentivise and retain key talent
  • Improve working relationships, team performance and productivity
  • Prevent burnout, manage pressure and build resilience
  • Create innovative solutions to business challenges
  • Support leaders returning to work after a period of absence
  • Provide outplacement support

Behind every athlete is a great coach

The athlete is the expert and has the skill and knowledge to achieve their goals but the extra guidance from a coach supports them to perform at their best – whatever their challenges. Denise plays the same role with leadership talent.


Executive Coaching provides individuals with:


  • A confidential sounding board to determine appropriate goals, strategies and action plans
  • Clarity on personal values and professional values
  • Strategies to make confident decisions
  • Creative and innovative solutions to business challenges
  • Help to identify self-sabotaging thought patterns
  • Development of emotional intelligence
  • Improved work-life balance
  • Techniques to manage pressure, prevent burnout and building resilience
  • Increased confidence in their own leadership abilities

Executive Coaching is a powerful and effective development tool which unlocks the hidden potential in your people. It is especially ideal for:

  • Senior Managers
  • Executive Directors
  • Middle Managers
  • Future Talent
  • Healthcare Professionals (see more…)
  • Women in STEM
  • Academics
  • Public Servants
  • Any business professional in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors

Executive Coaching can take place face-to-face in a mutually agreed location, on-site or off-site, by telephone or by Facetime, MS Teams or Zoom.

It is available as a three or six month package

Every programme is designed to meet the needs of the individual and the business. After an initial enquiry, Denise will speak with an individual’s line manager or HR partner: taking the time to thoroughly understand the assignment. Contact is then made with the individual to arrange the first Executive Coaching session.


The first session is a Coaching Discovery session. It is used for designing the working partnership, clarifying roles and responsibilities, establishing objectives and initiating the coaching process.


There is an option then if required for Denise to then meet with the individual and their line manager to discuss and agree on objectives set by the business. If the individual has some additional areas of focus these will remain confidential.


Thereafter, each 90-minute Executive Coaching session takes place once a month. The final session is for reflecting on learning and progress and celebrating successes.


On completion of the Executive Coaching sessions where there has been a contracting meeting, Denise will meet with the individual and their manager or HR partner to review progress, the impact of the coaching and discuss what further support may be needed going forward.
