GIVING OVERLOADED LEADERS RESPITE FOR THE SOUL,
AND SPACE TO GROW 

A gently radical, provocative, yet reassuring
approach to leadership and personal development;
grow into the natural leader you were born to be

Ex-forester, coach, leader…and lot more besides. Like you, I’m full of contradictions, complexity and an evolving sense of self.

I’ve been called “badass”; I get called “wise and wonderful”.

I’m a social introvert.

I’m fascinated by human development, and I’m my own biggest case study.

It’s taken me 50 years to get to a place of radical self acceptance, and be my natural self.

Now I’m here I’m becoming a “true warrior of the coaching community” (as one colleague put it), in my full fiercely gentle power, holding and defending the space for my clients to grow – naturally.

TESTIMONIALS

“Astonishing empathy, twinned with superb listening, questioning and coaching mastery. Rachel’s ability to – gently and with great care – challenge, provoke and guide made my coaching experience both deeply helpful and far better than I expected. I would, and will, recommend her very happily.”

David Haines, Chief Talent Officer

“I’m so glad I trusted the feeling that told me, amongst a roomful of coaches, that Rachel was the one to work with. She is calm, direct and intuitive and always helps me to reset my focus. At one point I thought I couldn’t afford to work with her, now I know that I can’t afford not to.”

Train to Nowhere

Life has felt full and fast these last two weeks, and I’ve missed the spaces in between. Without the spaces, I lose the sense of who I am and what I want; I become reactive, not centred and intentional. It’s not been bad or difficult stuff I’ve been dealing with -...

The Ground Beneath my Feet

When all seems madness, and the pace is too fast; the noise in my head too loud and too shrill; the tight flutter in my chest caught from anxiety in the air - it's time to breathe, deep and slow... Feel the air in my nose, the life in my veins. Feel the strength in my...
