More about me
Who Am I?
A passionate professional and Mum of 3 children, a teenager, pre-teen and nearly pre teen who thinks she is a teen - I drink a LOT of coffee! Since the pandemic, I worked for the NHS and other social care services developing an even deeper sense of how people have lost themselves a little in this world.
Having worked on the front line for many years, I understand how challenging it is to maintain our sense of self whilst supporting others. This can lead to burn out, fatigue and extended periods of leave from our jobs. Offering coaching or professional supervision to teams and individuals provides clarity and a new set of eyes to support you to work through your challenges and help you make sense of your world and the work you do.
My own journey to now
After years of working as a Leader in Children's and Mental health support services, I set up Chesil Infinity after several years of reflection and a spotlight on my own journey. My Masters focused on transformation theories, since then I've qualified as a coach (specialising in education, family and leadership), an NLP Practitioner, Child Psychology, Mental Health First Aider and Counselling & Psychotherapy. I work with children and young people but predominantly frontline practitioners and new managers in health, education and social care.
Why work with me?
Coaching and mentoring people over the last year has been focused on survival, not thriving. When you are faced with trauma and emotional impact, coupled with additional pressures at home, expectations of others, time limitations - it all builds up.
I have recently developed a bespoke coaching programme called 8 Elements, backed up by my knowledge and experience, it will give you the best focus on all areas of your life.
We can truly assess and understand where you want to be in your future and how you might get there. I can't force you, but I can remind you how awesome you are. I can shine a light on your strengths and use tools and methods which will sharpen your saw and your mind.
My approach works for children, young people and adults, it is unique to you and I use a blend of my competencies to empower you to start your journey and reach your aspirations and potential.
