Based in West Wales, I specialise in executive coaching for Leaders and Managers, especially in Higher Education, across the UK. I have a particular interest in Emotional Intelligence (EI). I can help you understand your strengths and give you a starting point for improvement in the way you work and interact with others. I subscribe to and work within the EMCC Code of Ethics. "Working with Shelley has been extremely helpful in developing and improving the way that I've approached my leadership role and the challenges and duties this role brings. Her insightful questions and ability to draw out different perspectives and understandings of a situation have helped me to prepare for and reflect on interactions and challenges with the result of, in my view, improvements in my management and leadership. Time spent with Shelley is time well spent." (HE Head of Department) "Shelley is honest, real and understanding and having experience in the field where she coaches and mentors really shows. Whilst encouraging me to challenge my thinking and practices I feel the underlying aim of our sessions is to achieve the best possible outcomes not just in terms of looking after my organisation but also looking after myself. I have the privilege of continuing a mentoring relationship with Shelley and look forward to many more sessions, I am always grateful for the guidance, support and insight provided by Shelley."
