Carmel works with the whole person and teams from inside out and out.  Her practice helps individuals, leadership, teams and professional coaches to step back to gain a broader view and to look at the underlying dynamics that shape their responses and relational patterns and make choices for change   Fundamentally, behaviour is driven by values, beliefs, experiences and thoughts, therefore coaching and leadership must start there in order to be learningful, enable growth and drive transformational change. She uses several psychological tools and techniques to support learning and make informed choices leading to increased performance, management of interferences, building credibility and agility, and achievement of potential.

The results we achieved were outstanding and sustained”   (Director, John Lewis Partnership).

I have used Carmel’s services multiple times over many years and I always see great results”.
