“Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.”
— Peter Drucker

I work with executives and leaders who are ready for change and transformation – people who are ready for the next step in business, work or career.

I provide an opportunity for you to identify areas for development, overcome challenges and maximise your potential – going beyond your normal limitations.

Results can include a clearer sense of direction, meaning and purpose; refreshed levels of motivation and engagement; renewed enthusiasm; breakthroughs in confidence, results, satisfaction, happiness and wellbeing.


Most coaching programmes take place over 6 – 12 months. Following an initial discussion to identify the overall aims and objectives, we create a coaching alliance in which you set the agenda for the sessions and I create the environment in which you can think, learn and grow.

I encourage clients to set goals which are energising, expansive and in line with what’s most important to you.

All programmes can be discussed and agreed with the sponsoring organisation where appropriate.

Sessions are available face to face, by telephone or Skype.

Typical coaching themes include:

  • How to lead in a challenging, changing, fast-paced environment
  • Overcoming confidence issues
  • Identifying and working with core values
  • Dealing with communication challenges
  • Managing conflict
  • Maximising potential – yours and others
  • Managing work life balance


“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.”
–Joel A. Barker

A Coaching Vision Intensive is a 1:1, deep-dive coaching experience that provides a unique opportunity to take some high quality, accelerated thinking and visioning time out away from the office.

Giving you the opportunity to access clarity around what’s next in your leadership, business, career and/or life.

Who should attend?

Leaders who want to work on a vision for themselves, their team or their organisation.

Positive psychology framework

The programme uses a framework of positive psychology to enable you to generate an inspiring, flourishing future for yourself, your team and your business.

The purpose of the Coaching Intensive programme is to work with you to:

  • Identify, refresh or up-level your existing vision and goals
  • Explore strengths and values-based leadership
  • Develop a strength-based action plan to forward the vision

The benefits:

  • Time out for some mind-expanding, enriching, future-focused thinking
  • Clarifying what’s important to you now and for the future
  • Creating a compelling vision and action plan you can’t wait to begin!

The structure of a Vision Intensive programme:

Before the day: We will ask you to complete some initial pre-work involving stimulus questions and an online strengths questionnaire.

The Vision Day: The day itself consists of a series of mind-expanding exercises to stimulate generative visioning and thinking. It includes an energising walk in nature to focus on values coaching and ends with creating a compelling, strength-based action plan to forward your vision.

After the day: 6 weeks after the Vision Day there is a follow-up coaching call to review the action plan and set new goals.

MD, retail sector

“Hazel is a brilliant coach – insightful, energetic, perceptive and fun. She is hard-wired to bring out the very best in people so that they can truly shine and be the best they can be.”

HR Manager, energy industry

“As part of the executive team I experienced Hazel’s coaching and found her to be a very insightful person. She has perfectly honed listening skills coupled with the ability to quickly identify issues/areas of focus around which coaching sessions are structured. She immediately gains confidence/builds rapport and trust and is focused on helping the individual make the necessary change in support of their development. I would recommend Hazel as a professional and proficient coach.”

Senior Nurse Manager, NHS

“I am writing to say thank you for the coaching I experienced with you, it has had a profound positive impact on my life. I wanted to let you know that because we don’t always praise people enough. I am glad that I met you and I am glad you assisted me to open up my mind.”

MD, social enterprise

“Since my vision day with Hazel I have experienced a connection and energy with my work which had been lacking. On the day itself I set a wide range of new goals and I have stuck to them in the last month or so since then. I have managed to increase my income, widen my range of clients and deepen my enjoyment of what I do. I can highly recommend Hazel. She has a way of working which allows people’s own strengths to come out, and it is this which forms a strong basis for lasting change.”

MD, food industry

“A wonderful day away from my busy life. A treat to be able to focus on me, re-align my perspective and get totally clear on who I am and what my values are.”

Fred Rutter – CEO

“Hazel is marvellous, she has made life exciting again and fully re-energised me. I was in the pits, utterly fed up and on the point of walking away from my career. I thought I would seek some advice and found Hazel. Within just four sessions over four months my life turned around and rocketed upwards. Things around me are now working, and working well. I’m sure the positive energy radiates! I’m astonished by the transformation in me, I feel fantastic, this feels like a miracle. I can’t thank Hazel enough and if you are reading this, contact her now, it will be one of the best moves you make. ”

Mike Chapman – CEO

“I’ve been working with Hazel for a couple of years now, and the results have been invaluable. She has given me clarity backed up with executable strategies where other coaches could not. I’ve considerably widened my platform for growth and my performance in certain areas has improved significantly.”
