"I felt that you challenged me in more ways than others have in the past and you made me look at the problems in a different light"
DS, Company Director- Health Care Provider
Hello, my name is Abby. I'm based in Cardiff and I'm a qualified professional/ personal coach (ILM Level 7 Coaching and Mentoring). I have worked within healthcare for over 20 years and this has given me the opportunity to work with people during the best and worst times in their lives. I value this experience hugely and recognise how challenging change can be: whether it is unplanned for example due to ill-health or relationship breakdown; or because you recognise the need to make a change.
Much of my professional life has been dedicated to supporting people to embrace change, feel empowered to take ownership of the challenges they face and take pride in being the best that they can be.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss whether coaching is right for you, I am always happy to be contacted.
A coaching relationship is based on:
Openness, honesty and trust
Dignity and respect
Working in partnership
Courage and commitment
I am committed to continuing professional development and learning new skills that will enhance my practice.
During our sessions I will make notes/ use tools to support my ongoing work with you. Both paper and electronic records will be managed in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR).
ILM Level 7, Executive Coaching and Mentoring, University of South Wales
Cert. HE Applied Health studies
Happy with my life most of the time
Realistic that I can’t control everything (although that would obviously be nice)
Up for a challenge
Good at taking a step back, seeing the bigger picture, and recognising where the resources are to help you achieve your end goal
A believer in taking a risk, listening to your gut instinct and getting creative
Resourceful - If something isn’t working we will find another way!
I have no time for whining and self-pity: if you are looking for someone to sugar-coat life, I am not the coach for you. If you are ready to make a change and would like someone to be in your corner and support you to make lasting changes in your life, I will be with you 100%.
We should look forward to our future but learn lessons from our past.
