Mentoring and Coaching Services
Coaching is about supporting others to realise their full potential. It is about empowering others so they can move forward independently once the coach has gone.
As a mentor I can use my previous and current experiences to work with others going through similar experiences and help them navigate a pathway to success.
I offer programmes of one to one, online sessions to help you to become a more effective leader.
Coaching can help you to reflect, review your goals and ambitions, and become more confident and competent and help you to be successful in getting to where you want to be in your career.
As a fully qualified and accredited Chartered Manager, I have the skills and experience to guide emerging and experienced leaders to high performance and to achieve their ambitious goals.
Or perhaps you just want to be able to gain back a reasonable work-life balance and to enjoy your work again. Let me help you to reassess what is important, and what is realistic in the world of modern-day senior management.
My core offer is a programme of online support sessions, taking you through a journey of reflection, review, change and action towards your own personal goals. Throughout that journey I will use my previous and current experience as a successful leader in my own right, as well as my current knowledge of a wide range of people and resources who can assist you in your journey, including EFT.

(Julie Starr, 2014).
Why did you sign up for leadership mentoring?
I decided to take the plunge and participate in the a leadership mentoring programme, because I felt ready to take the next step in progressing my career, and I needed guidance to understand and shape what I wanted my next role to look like. I also wanted to improve my confidence and gain reassurance that I have what it takes to succeed in a senior leadership role.
Did you have any reservations about this process?
I was completely open about where the process would take me.
What made you decide to go ahead?
The timing of the mentoring was crucial. The offer to be mentored came at a time when I had deputised for my line manager, who had been off sick for a period of time. I was successful in that position and now wanted to pursue similar roles in new organisations. I thought being mentored could help me with that.
Can you identify three things which have changed since undertaking this programme?
My confidence and self-belief have really improved. With the help of Gillian, I have become my own cheerleader! I now know the direction I want to move in to progress my career and recognise that I already have the leadership skills to make that so.
What (if anything) is different about the way Gillian’s services stand out from other similar practitioners?
I have never been mentored before, however I can say that Gillian is a true inspiration. She is honest and open, and she helped me to recognise my strengths. She also introduced me to tapping, which has helped me immensely when dealing with difficult/ stressful situations.
A big thank you to Gillian! I’m very fortunate to have been paired with her. She is a very genuine person and her enthusiasm for ensuring that you are the best you can be is so infectious.
