Examples of recent projects

Spire Healthcare

Coaching the Regional Clinical Directors at Spire Healthcare provided an incredible opportunity to work with highly pressured leaders in the health service.

Some of the themes covered here included strategies for coping under pressure, self-care while achieving high performance and preparing for complex conversations while retaining empathy for others.
I would highly recommend Trish as a coach, Trish used effective methods to support my senior team in managing and thriving in a demanding workload. Trish is an absolute professional and has made a hugely positive difference to my team.
Alison Dickinson
Group Clinical Director

Through Cognomie I have been privileged to coach individuals from the National Health Service including doctors and nurses, and pharmaceutical companies including medical technology designers and researchers.
Some use their Mental Fitness report, designed by Cognomie, as a starting point to the coaching. The emphasis here has included maintaining mental fitness and well-being, leading others, developing and empowering their team and, keeping resilient in these current times.
I found the coaching sessions I had with Trish the most useful support I had accessed as a clinician in a new NHS management role. The opportunity to learn a new approach, and then apply directly into the challenges I was facing at the time was invaluable
Dr Teresa Pietroni
Clinical Director, Inner City Gloucester Primary Care Network

I coached this amazing team of charity workers, who support young carers and young workers, as they emerge from lockdown and working remotely.
In advance of embarking on a new ‘year’ with new leadership, new vision and new ways of working, together through the coaching they were enabled to reaffirm their values, find a continued alliance in their goals and, cement their commitment in how they want to work together.
I felt very honoured to work with Renaissance Foundation.
Trish led a really valuable session with the small staff team at Renaissance Foundation.
Her positive, gentle and listening approach really helped us to form our team alliance, agreed ways of working and priorities for well-being in the workplace.
Her work with me before the session really ensured she understood our charity, our values and how she could help us to become even more aligned with one another. I would highly recommend Trish - we came away with clear action points and feeling really energised as a team.
Natalie Chevin
Director of Fundraising and Impact

ASCLAs more headteachers are moving into executive leadership and CEOs of Multi-Academy Trusts, I was invited by ASCL to coach on the National Professional Qualification for Executive Leadership.
Here the coaching has focussed on confidence building and self-belief, empowering and developing other leaders, and, courage, risk-taking and holding others to account.
Trish challenged my thinking, in a kind and supportive manner, and led me to make what will prove to be a life changing decision. She encourages you to face those things that you have put in boxes in your brain, because they are too big or scary to consider, or because as a leader, there is just 'no time' to consider your own needs.
The whole coaching experience for me was tough but I have emerged stronger, and shall certainly be working with Trish going forward.
Cath Kitchen
Executive Headteacher

Olive Academies
Olive Academies, a multi-academy trust, supports children and young people who have experienced difficulty in learning in mainstream schools.
The headteachers work with young people who are at risk of exclusion, those who have been permanently excluded from school and those who have medical needs.
I have delighted in coaching the headteachers across Olive working through the lens of resilience, well-being, growth leadership, optimising performance and team development.
I had no hesitation in recommending Trish’s work to our Headteachers at the Trust when we talked to them about being able to access a coach to support their work. Trish has gone on to become an invaluable asset to the organisation through her high quality work with our leaders. I am always impressed by the feedback I receive about her professionalism and careful questioning to help each individual to reflect on their approach to work. I thoroughly recommend her to any organisation who values its staff and wants to help them grow in their lives.
Mark Vickers
CEO, Olive Academies

I was approached by the CEO of this amazing charity, Tempo, to coach the leaders as they stepped into new roles across the organisation. 
We focussed on areas like articulating and communicating their vision, setting priorities, time management and work-life harmony.
Being coached by Trish was a pleasure, and really valuable both in terms of short term 'settling in' goals as I started a new role, and longer term thinking. She helped me work through my aspirations and identify and overcome some of my fears ! I feel much better able to deal with the day to day and take forward the long term as a result.

Trish is amazing. She helped me realign my professional objectives with my deeply-held values and to discover strengths I did not know I had. It was exactly what I needed.
Theodoros Chronopoulos
Senior Programme Officer for Africa and Russia, EMpower - The Emerging Markets Foundation
I highly recommend Trish as a Coach. She has keen instincts and intuition that allow her to read between the lines and ask powerful, insightful and difference-making questions that open doors for new possibilities and new perspectives. She is also a compassionate person/coach and that makes for a strong champion to have on your side when trying to break out of your comfort zone. Working with Trish has been an incredibly positive and rewarding experience.
Pam Gibson
Corporate Vice President, Human Resources and Executive Coach, The Bradford Group
Over the last 20+ years, I've worked in the social justice field focusing on women's rights. I've always been very clear about why I do the work I do, but having survived an organisational change process at an organisation I had worked at for 16 years, I wanted to press pause. Part of that was to allow myself to think through what was important to me, what motivated me, and explore and shape my next steps. My journey with Trish has been transformational - she got me, and gently cajoled and guided me to better get me. From being overwhelmed with possibilities, fears, and struggling to make sense of them all, Trish with insight, empathy and a box full of creative tools, has supported me through a process of reflection, understanding, and humour. I'm still on a journey but I now have clarity, confidence and direction. A friend highly recommended Trish to me, and I too recommend her highly.
Pontso Mafethe

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. Through her powerful questioning she enables me to look at issues from different perspective and helps me find solutions, which I own. She has great energy and is passionate about empowering women, particularly women in leadership. Her ability to listen deeply and call me out on the stories I hide behind, are amazing and much needed in order for me to reach my dreams and goals. I highly recommend this powerhouse coach for anyone in need of a shift and transformation in their life.
Sharon Ilstrup
Managing Director, The Attic Learning Community, Seattle
Working with Trish is a joy. Her big heart shines brightly. This enabled me to open up and trust in the space of exploration we created together. Although gentle, Trish is also firm. She obtained my commitment to the actions needed for my progress. I felt deeply heard and held making this whole process feel nurturing, like a warm embrace.
Craig Howe

Trish is a great listener who is able to take a mass of information and by careful, considered questioning arrive at the heart of the issue. Helping you to find not only potential answers, but to learn a lot about yourself and your ambitions along the way.
Mike Davies
Director of Global Communications, PwC
I found Trish to be a professional and very warm coach to work with. I felt motivated to accomplish my goals with her kind yet persistent support. I feel lasting changes in my behaviour around the work we did. I would recommend Trish to anyone looking for support in making changes in their life. Thank you Trish so much for your help
Lindy James
Counsellor & Intimacy Coach, California
I was extremely fortunate to receive professional coaching with Trish through my NPQEL course. She fully supported me with my NPQEL in helping me carefully consider different aspects through her expert coaching and facilitating. She expertly used probing questions to clarify my thinking and to create discernible and meaningful ways forward to improve and also in reaffirming my strengths. I would highly recommend Trish as a coach
Jenni Richards
Primary Education Director
Trish coached a member of my team and over that time I saw her confidence in her own abilities grow and develop, she became clearer at communicating with others internally, and more assertive, taking a real lead where previously she might have deferred to others. It has been so useful in helping her think through where she wants to take her talents in future both within the organisation and ultimately beyond. It has been fantastic to see such an impact over a short space of time.
