My self-development journey has taken me full circle through a career as a veterinary surgeon, programme manager and management consultant and back again. My first experience of coaching was on the Leadership Programme for one of the Big 4 consultancy companies. I was writing my business case for promotion and through the coaching process, I realised that whilst it was a great job that paid well, it didn’t fit in with my personal values. I wasn’t desperately unhappy, but something just wasn’t right.

I booked onto the free 2-day course at the end of February and went along to day 1 slightly uncertain of what I was going to encounter, but very definite in the knowledge that I wanted to learn as much as possible about myself and others. I’m pleased to say that I enjoyed it immensely and found it an inspiring 2 days, and knew I wanted to pursue coaching.
