My background

For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for productivity and helping people improve the way they work and learn.

Following my degree in Psychology and Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), I spent twelve years as a Teacher and Senior Management Team member.

As part of my role, I facilitated coaching, training and professional development opportunities for staff teams.

As a Performance Manager, I supported staff and pupils in setting and reaching goals and targets to improve their performance and development.

During my ‘Outreach’ role as a specialist Teacher of children with Special Educational Needs, I delivered training to families and staff in primary schools across Brighton and Hove.

After taking a career break to focus on being a Mum to my two daughters, I retrained in coaching. It is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

I achieved an accredited Diploma in Performance Coaching, after which I proudly set up my business – Heads-up Coaching in 2018.

How I help

After a few years as a Business Coach and Trainer, I decided to niche and specialise in time management and productivity.

I feel passionate about helping my clients find the clarity, tools and confidence to get their best work done and have more time and energy for the things that matter.

As the landscape of work evolves, I offer guidance and support to help my clients navigate the changes, challenges and opportunities that come with running their business or in their workplace.

I help businesses and teams find their focus and achieve their goals by improving their time management, productivity and wellbeing, through group training and 1:1 coaching.

I live in Brighton and Hove with my husband, our two energetic daughters and a mischievous dog.

When I’m not working, I enjoy walking or cycling along the seafront and Sussex countryside, swimming, yoga, singing in my choir, reading and traveling.
