TopHat: Your Partner in Change!


At TopHat Coaching my great hope is that you, your family and your work colleagues stay safe and well.  

Many clients are facing uncertain times with anxiety. Everyone is affected. Whether you feel like a headless chicken in search of mask or you are more disconcerted by the panic of others, the Corona virus is affecting your business and your life. This is a time for reflection and planning with a coach who can listen to your concerns and partner you in your plans. I am offering a range of flexible support, including some pro bono and special rates and formats. 

If you need to discuss an existing package or want to talk with me about new work, you know what to do. The contact details are below

Thinking partners-in-change


TopHat Coaching provides an excellent, professional coaching service to you, your family and your organisation. This service aims to build confidence and open-mindedness leading to motivation and high performance. I am your partner-in-change. 

Our work together intends to shift your perspective, as you make the changes you want to make in your life and work. 

Working with individuals and teams, my services draw on on two things: First is my belief in resources with in you that coaching unlocks, affecting not only you but those you connect with. Second is my experience as a leader in many contexts. I have seen hundreds of colleagues, leaders and recruits who have demonstrated resilience, creativity and passion for change.

Working with Teams

Thinking partnerships-in-change also work well with teams. Team coaching is an investment to revisit the purpose of your team within its ecosystem. As relations within the team deepen, resilience is developed and stronger futures can emerge.  

Team coaching is often a key complement to 1-2-1 coaching investments into businesses. Together we will examine the purpose or commissioning of the team, the group dynamics, roles and learning strategies. For teams and organisations, we will build a project of improvement that encourages self reflection and a measurement of success.  For more on why this investment makes sense go here.

Here are some thoughts on effective teams and a short test you could run to see where you are now.  

Life can be messy, stressful, fun and  surprising. Coaching can open amazing insights, helping you find a way forward. It is a key investment in your life, on your terms. Find out now how you can work with me.

When I work with teams and businesses my work opens pathways to high performance. Contact me to find out more.

What is coaching and what is it not?
Coaching is a professional service guided by a Code of Ethics where a facilitated conversation enables clients to turn ideas into tangible plans. It is neither therapy nor counselling. I will not engage or try to understand the roots of your anxieties or fears that form barriers to action.
Coaching is not consulting. I will not advise or give direction in relation to your ideas or plans.
