What I do

Professional Development Coach

Using different tools, techniques and communication styles to provide tailored coaching. I work individuals on a 1 to 1 basis and lead group coaching programmes on specific topics. In addition, I also work with organisations, delivering coaching sessions to female rising stars or group sessions to build a leadership team. ​

Professional Development Coaching consists of activities that develop a person’s capabilities and potential, build a personal brand, facilitate employability, and enhance quality of life and the realisation of dreams and aspirations.  

Group Coaching

Group coaching is great way to network and have access to high-quality coaching but without the price-tag. Take a look at The 4 Day Transformational Group Coaching page to find out more.

What my clients say

Lucy has been supporting me virtually on a one to one basis, coaching me through some recent big changes in my work and personal life. After every session I have ended the call feeling massively less stressed and way more organised, inspired and motivated. Lucy is so easy to speak to, she is extremely empathetic and very knowledgeable. Her tone is very calming and reassuring, she has a natural ability to make everything feel more positive. I can’t recommend Lucy enough if your looking for any kind of support or guidance in your personal life or career.

Tanya Fahey

Product Owner

It’s been pleasure to work with Lucy. I am so grateful for her passion and insights. When we started working together I was frustrated with making decisions around my next steps to boost my business and make my work process dynamic. During our sessions we determined my business values and how they can work for me, integrated a new way of working and opened up my potential as a business owner. Most importantly our sessions helped me attract new projects, to be stronger and fearless in achieving my goals. I highly recommend Lucy as a coach for anyone who is looking to take their business to the next level.

Authentic, inspiring and motivational are just some of the qualities that spring to mind when I think about Lucy’s attributes as a coach. During our coaching sessions Lucy has used empathy and insight to help clarify my thinking and equip me with the skills and confidence to bring about the changes I want for myself. I would highly recommend Lucy’s professional services to anyone who is looking to develop within their professional and personal life.

Higher Education Careers

I can’t thank Lucy enough, her tips, advice and knowledge have helped me so much with my recent work, she really gets what it is like to work in an environment which is often dominated by men with few women in leadership roles. After a few years when my career was a bit flat, she really helped me to have the confidence to go after my own goals. I can say her advice is really paying off for me. I would recommend her to anyone considering a careers coach.

Sharon Curtis

Project Manager

I really enjoyed working with Lucy! I was initially introduced through a friend and had never thought of doing careers counselling myself but I’m so glad I did. I feel like from only a few sessions I’ve been opened up to a wider and more positive outlook on dealing with and directing my career in the right direction and beginning to acknowledge and tackle some of the blockages I experience. Lucy was more than welcoming and easy to talk to, I look forward to continuing the journey!
