Coaching Style

My coaching style is based around the ICF core competencies of coaching and is client centred and holistic. I take an organic approach to coaching and allow sessions to focus very much on the needs of the coachee and where they want to go in a session.

Professional Experience

I have used a coaching approach in my leadership in schools for many years and when I suffered a burnout, I knew that I wanted to train as a coach. I set up my own education coaching business 3 years ago and have supported schools and school leaders since then in a variety of ways through group coaching programmes, one to one coaching for school leaders, team coaching for senior leadership teams, peer to peer coaching for teaching and learning/school improvement, coach training and delivering Resilient Leaders Elements leadership development programmes.

I also created and produce and present the We Lead Well podcast on which I interview prominent educationalists and school leaders about how school leaders can take care of their well-being whilst leading as effectively as possible.

Passion Projects

My passion is supporting women leaders in schools to avoid burnout and sustain their careers long term. With this in mind, I created a group coaching programme for women leaders which is my favourite thing to do out of all of the elements of my current role.

Contact Vicki


I found the challenge around my thinking and self-talk habits most helpful. Allowing me to see how my thinking impacts how I feel and act has enabled me to become more resilient and positive and happier.

The coaching had had a significant impact on my life.
I would recommend Vicki to others for coaching because she is astute and honest, but always kind. She listens and hears even what your not saying. She is invested in her clients and the support she gives is second to none! Vicki will really help you to banish your limiting beliefs and empower you to have the confidence to take the required steps to become your authentic self.

Thank you for all the time you have spent coaching me. If someone had told me six months ago where I would be right now, I would have laughed them out of the building! Thank you for helping me manifest my wildest dreams.
