Louise's Background

As a coach, Louise draws on a wealth of personal experience

Lou has worked in large corporate environments with senior executives and teams, she's overcome ill-health from chronic fatigue syndrome, and she's navigated the challenges of  redundancy. She's also a mother and an entrepreneur. Her coaching business is underpinned by her fundamental curiosity in the psychology of behaviour.

Louise's 15-years’ experience working in marketing and communications in global investment banks and management consultancies has given her a front seat to witness the challenges that are faced by leaders in these environments.

Having completed her first degree with a psychology background, coaching has re-ignited her passion to delve into the psychological theories that are vital in understanding how and why people behave.

Louise helps her clients to become more aware of their ability to be an agent of change. She gives them the skills to reach their full potential, both professionally and personally.

Louise is passionate about professionalism and proudly holds the following qualifications to provide a high standard of professional and executive coaching.
