can I help you?

Using the power of co-active coaching and a distinctive voice, I enable you and your team, to become your best selves, supporting you to thrive in both life and work. 

My training, philosophy and background

I am a certified Co-Active Coach trained by the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI) and a member of the International Coach Federation, certified as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC). I have also trained to work as a relationship and systems coach which enables me to facilitate team development workshops and coach teams supporting their growth towards high performance. My training was with the world renowned Organisation and Relationship Systems Coach ORSC™ training series.

My fundamental philosophy and beliefs are underpinned by the coaching relationship between the coach and the client. I believe it an equal relationship where transformational change in the client is the responsibility of both. As the coach, I employ skills and processes using the principles of coaching and I absolutely trust you hold the answers. I also believe when working with teams we shift the focus from the individuals’ intelligence to the shared group intelligence. And trusting this allows solutions to emerge naturally from the system.

Through my training and through my own coaching relationship with an accredited CPCC coach, I am able to employ strategies to be more engaged in the moment and to address my balance between the ‘doing’ and the ‘being’. Consequently, I champion a healthy work-life balance, a more mindful approach to how we live, and an inquisitive, growth mindset in all we do.

Trish is a fantastic coach! She brings great humour and warmth to our sessions which makes me feel safe to step out of my comfort zone and take risks... I highly recommend this powerhouse coach for anyone in need of a shift and transformation in their life.

I am firmly committed to the power of coaching to bring out the best in our teams and ourselves and in helping us grow and flourish in both life and work. Coaching enables us to reflect on difficult situations and address them from different perspectives. It gives us courage to live by our values, face our fears and go for our dreams.

Having many years of senior leadership experience, I have been engaged as a personal coach to many executive, senior and middle leaders, helping them successfully grow in their leadership. I have coached leadership teams in working towards a more effective collective, to steer transitional change, and to effectively lead and participate in high performing teams.

From coaching with me, you will take away strategies to deal with your life, a commitment to your values and a knowledge of how and who to draw upon in times of challenge and uncertainty.

Being coached has:

  • made me stop. And think deeply

  • helped me be more reflective

  • made me excited about learning

  • helped me be more mindful across all aspects of my life

  • helped me to develop more authentic relationships

  • made me curious about myself

  • made me curious about others

  • helped me be more intuitive

  • helped me acknowledge and challenge my saboteurs

  • helped me find strength and resilience from within

Who are you?

There are many psychometric tests or assessment tools where we can learn more about ourselves before we start our coaching journey. I am a certified practitioner in the following examples.

The Enneagram

This is an incredible guide for your journey towards self-discovery and awareness. It offers insight to you, your team or your community and provides an in-depth and rich resource to personal development, relationship building, conflict resolution and the improvement of team dynamics.

There are nine different enneagram styles which represent a worldview and archetype that resonates with your core motivations. 

What type most represents you?



This is an innovative strengths profiling system which measures work related strengths. All 24 strengths are accessible to us all, but some energise us more than others. Developing awareness around these helps us both optimise them and improve our performance and engagement at work during good and pressured times. 

A straightforward questionnaire will result in a profile report highlighting your significant strengths and your critical performance risks and how to successfully minimise these. This is an insightful resource to use as a lens in achieving your coaching goals. 

What are your significant seven strengths?


Emotional Intelligence Assessment

The EQ-i 2.0 is the leading emotional intelligence assessment used in coaching and leadership development.

Again, through taking a simple online test, you will learn about your levels of emotional intelligence in 5 broad areas. An awareness of these helps us gauge how we see ourselves and interact with others, how we use our emotional skills, and how we can expand these skills through coaching and development.

How often are you using your emotional intelligence skills?

I’d like to listen to you. To champion, develop and empower you.
