What is a lack of confidence and direction really costing you? Continuously undervalued? Missing out on your dreams? Feeling disconnected? I see you and I hear you because I have been there. The good news is that life does not have to be this way!
Hi, I’m Grace (insert cheesy wave here). As an accountant working in financial services, I felt drained. It wasn’t just the crazy deadlines & the pressure of the job. It was something harder to pin-down. The feeling of ‘meh’ was my default setting. In order to escape, I found myself working excessively late nights hoping that at some point all the work would make me feel whole, make me feel valued, & heard… (Spoiler Alert: It didn’t.) I tried to change my life by making superficial shifts.
Slowly realising that I kept slipping into the same habits that didn’t serve me emotionally, mentally or professionally. I was going nowhere. In desperation I hired a life coach. Honestly, I had no idea what coaching even was, but I was curious, & I figured that I had nothing to lose. This was the start of a beautiful life changing journey. My coach helped me reconnect with who I am, what matters to me, & how to live my best life. I smile as I look back at where I have come from, & how challenging & rewarding the journey has been.
I have a clear understanding of who I am, what fills my cup, & the direction my life is headed. That’s why I wake up every day passionate about helping others to find their own paths with a structured coaching program designed to empower you to unlock all the best parts of you. I know, life’s busy. Give yourself permission to invest in your own happiness, success, & fulfilment. Your future is yours to write. Trust is an essential ingredient when working together.

I chose to study at iPEC because of the school’s well established roots & high regard within the industry. Having obtained my accounting designation, I see an incredible value in having a well-recognised certification to be able to demonstrate that I have dedicated a large amount of time to refine my coaching skills & to ensure that my coaching has lasting results for my clients.
Hi there, I started coaching in 2001 after a thirteen years of commercial (mostly sales) experience in the technology, media and telecoms sectors.
I had been sitting on the roof of a houseboat on a lake near Srinagar in Kashmir at sunset, listening to the Muezzin calling the faithful to prayer. After months of exploration I finally realised that the thing that gives me the most satisfaction in life is helping people. I also love the world of business so it was obvious I should be coaching in business.
I’m lucky enough to have been in occupied solidly ever since with some great clients. I’m continuing to develop as an Exec coach (it never ends!) and my focus now is firmly on coaching leadership teams.
My clients tell me that I’m pragmatic and practical which my wife finds hard to believe.
I am a 121 Motivational Coach with over 20 years of experience and developing others, primarily in the John Lewis Partnership.
121 Personal Coaching: As your coach I will build rapport and chemistry with you through a genuine interest in your agenda. This means being in the moment with you, listening, asking targeted, thoughtful, open questions and challenging you where I believe it to be appropriate and helpful.
You will then design your own action plans and goals after each session, while both you and I will manage progress and accountability.
I will support you to let go of things that aren’t helpful. This can sometimes mean living alongside the unhelpful for a while to really notice what is going on for you.
I will help you to explore the things you do really well and use these skills and qualities as allies to make life even better.
121 Personal Coaching with Motivational Maps ®: There are times when we can feel highly motivated and the “doing” becomes easy, but what about when we get stuck? There are many reasons behind why we might not be motivated to start something… fear, lack of confidence, peer pressure…. to name but three.
Motivational Maps is a self perception inventory which means you are getting an insight into your motivations and where your energy is flowing right now.
Motivation is so crucial in shaping what is important to us (especially in the current climate), yet it can be really difficult sometimes to work out what truly drives us.
People ask what’s important to me…. happiness I say, it’s the key to everything, including my motivation. Being true to myself and authentic, showing appreciation, kindness and love for others is really important in my world. If some fun and humour can be added along the way, that’s always good too!

I work with Harrison’s Assessment Tools as a very insightful tool to improve self-awareness. I have worked with senior leaders and teams across Europe, Asia Pacific and the U.S.
With over 30 years’ experience, I have worked in a wide range of sectors including Leisure, Aviation, Facilities Management, Commercial Property, Recruitment and NFP / Housing Association.
I coach aspirational professionals and business leaders to help them perform at their best. As both a qualified management accountant with 20 years in industry and a Certified ICF Coach, I offer a unique service for business leaders to get the support they need to grow and develop.
What do I offer?
I work with a range of clients from employees who want clarity on their next steps to entrepreneurs who need support and space to reflect on their challenges and goals.
I trained as a Coactive Coach with the Coach Training Institute one of the largest and longest running coach programmes. I also tutor aspiring coaches on the Level 5 Coaching apprenticeship course with current clients including both large corporations and public sector organisations.
Nicola Arnold (PCC, CPCC, BA (Hons), Cert Ed) is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach empowering women to achieve inner confidence by challenging limiting beliefs and mindset that stop them valuing their own worth.
She firmly believes that self worth is a lifestyle not a luxury. With over 25 years’ experience in helping individuals focus on their development both professionally and personally, her passion is in supporting individuals to connect with who they really are and what they really want. She nurtures them to be happy in their skin by quashing self doubt and reconnecting with their true self so they can illuminate their path of possibilities and make resonant choices. In 2016 she launched the Happy to be ME hub (shortlisted for an ‘exceptional business award’ 2017 and two awards in 2018) an online community where people can share what’s made them smile and how they have connected with gratitude.
It has fostered a culture where everyone supports and champions each other to be their authentic selves and be happy to be in their own skin. Nicola is regularly invited to speak at events and has spoken at the UK ICF conference and for several of their chapters.
She also writes regularly for a number of online mediums on self care, wellbeing and authenticity – three of her top values. Recent clients have included Princes Trust, NHS and other charity organisations, both within the UK and internationally.
I specialise in supporting people through their planning for retirement and in making a successful transition to fulfilment and wellbeing in retirement. Focussing mainly on the psychological and emotional transition to retirement, I enable people to create a vision of their best retirement and a plan to achieve it.
After ‘retiring’ from a long career in social housing, including 20 years’ management and leadership experience, I began working as an independent leadership coach and trainer in 2012 before pivoting to delivering retirement coaching in 2018.
I am a qualified retirement coach, draw on a number of different tools in my coaching including NLP and Solutions Focus and I am accredited to use Strengthscope and DISC profiling.

I am a qualified and accredited coach, and I am also a qualified therapeutic counsellor, so I bring a depth of psychological knowledge and expertise to my coaching.
I offer two types of coaching:
Executive Coaching: I coach leaders and managers to improve their job and life satisfaction and enhance their performance by leveraging their strengths and values. I provide a safe and supportive space where they can think and reflect and explore new possibilities. Many people find that having a trusted confidante and the space to think and understand themselves and their patterns better, benefits them in both their professional and personal lives.
Therapeutic Coaching: I coach people who want to take stock of their lives or make a positive change in their lives, by helping them to look at past and present patterns and leverage their strengths and values to bring about the change that they want. I provide a safe, confidential and reflective space where people can be themselves and talk openly about what matters most to them. This is a blended approach leveraging both my coaching and counselling skills to provide just what each person needs in each session.
I am an accredited senior practitioner in coaching with the European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC) and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
My passion for coaching evolved naturally. I saw police colleagues unleash their true potential and the joy that brought. I received coaching late on in my career, and now strive to deliver coaching opportunities to all. On leaving policing I launched my own leadership development company Blue Husky Ltd.
After a rollercoaster 30 years in UK policing, I left as a Chief Superintendent. I have 20 years’ leadership experience nationally and internationally – I led teams in some of the most challenging contexts and was totally committed to protecting the vulnerable in society. My resilience, values and leadership have all been tested and developed – with many lessons gleaned.
I seek work where I can make the most impact wuth teams and individuals. I help the private, public and third sector tackling their prickly challenges. I am now a leadership associate and coach for the College of Policing. I also deliver coaching for their ‘Aspire’ programme for under-represented leaders.
My mission is to deliver bespoke development programmes and coaching that totally focuses on clients’ needs in their current context. I believe by tackling the difficult issues, they will be more effective and happier. I am an EMCC Practitioner 1-1 coach. I have a Level 7 Diploma in Team Coaching.
I voluntarily chair the Governors Board for Merrywood Education. During Covid we opened two trauma informed independent special schools for children with the most complex needs. I have completed endurance events and my sporting experiences help shape my approaches.
Toby combines his interest and passion in understanding how our minds work with 27 years of experience working in academic, industry and consultancy sectors.
Toby’s approach is to listen without judgement so as to gain an understanding of the person he is coaching, and then to take the conversation ‘upstream’ at some point to view things from a different perspective.
Toby is interested in what brings people to life, what they really want, as well as which of the stories we tell ourselves are genuinely true versus those that strangle our life energy and stop us from fulfilling our potential. Gaining this clarity can help transform how a coachee sees their situation and their mind habits, as well as identify what action is required (if at all).
Toby is accredited in this type of transformative coaching after attending the Genius Catalyst course for coaches by Michael Neill. Toby is also a licensed practitioner of Insights Discovery, which can be used alongside other tools within the coaching sessions to help raise self-awareness. Self-awareness is key to understanding and allowing ourselves without judgement and therefore harnessing our full personal power.
