Lucy is a Leadership Coach who brings over twenty years of operational and strategic experience to support clients both on a 1:1 basis and as teams. She spent fifteen years as an internal coach and mentor, in addition to her day job, gaining a reputation for her skill in developing people.
The secret to Lucy’s success lies in her ability to generate connection and trust in her relationships. Her 1:1 clients value her flexibility and ability to drill down to the heart of things while team leaders know that she can get them and their team wherever they need to go. This base of trust gives her a responsiveness, which allows her to help clients think about themselves, their work and their lives in new ways which consistently aids mobility and achieves breakthrough. She is passionate about seeing people fulfil their potential, and equipped to help them acquire inspiring and practical leadership skills.
While Lucy’s credentials are impeccable, her approach comes from hard-won experience rather than theory. She has lived the daily cycle of family, commute and office and understands the challenges of finding the right balance. Through the relationship she builds with her clients, she is able to help them see what they value most and how to find satisfaction in both their professional and personal lives.

Lucy has had the privilege of working with people and leaders from many backgrounds and in different businesses. See what they have to say:
I have recently had the great opportunity to step up into an Executive Director role which has meant that I am now the line manager for my previous peer group. Working with Lucy has been invaluable in giving me the space and prompts to really focus on “who I am and what I need to demonstrate in my new role” and her skill has helped me unpick my “USP”. Developing the ability to be more sophisticated in what I say and, understand more is less, has been great fun with Lucy. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
As a school leader, I was hesitant about talking to someone without an education background but from our initial meeting I knew Lucy would be right. The bespoke package she provided, including both 1:1 and team coaching, was invaluable! Lucy always challenged our thinking, supported us to remain focused, maximised our output and led the sessions with confidence and humour, building a good rapport with every member of the team. Each session produced a clear action or clarity of thought and I am not sure we could have achieved all we have in quite the same way without her!
Lucy helps to alter your perspective on a situation, giving you the ability to choose what you want from life, business or personal and how to easily achieve your goals. The sessions consistently provide fresh opportunities to recognise the true nature of my life situation, to become clearly aware of where I am, where I really want to go and most importantly, what I need to do to get there. Since meeting with Lucy, I have seen my overall personal and professional life satisfaction grow by leaps and bounds. One chat with her could change your life!
Lucy has helped us all to understand our key motivators and has shown how this knowledge can empower us to become better leaders in a challenging environment. Her personality has helped our teams to address difficult problems in a non-threatening manner and she created a safe space for much needed honesty. I would highly recommend her considered and thoughtful approach that has provided considerable benefits and empowerment and promoted a healthy working culture.
I had set goals that I was desperate to achieve – to readdress my life balance and become more confident in my identity within my capacity as a leader – but I didn’t even know how to begin. Lucy was caring and tough in equal measure: challenging the limitations I put around myself and lifting my head to dream how life could be different. My family and colleagues have all commented on the difference, as I have become more confident in who I am and what I want to become. The results are better than I could have imagined.
Lucy provided a fantastic service and worked closely with me to a provide range of a tailor-made leadership and coaching sessions to leaders within the organisation. Lucy was extremely responsive and provided a wealth of knowledge and skills which enhanced the training experience. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lucy and would love to work with her again the future.
