Corporate professionals | Business owners


It’s time to shake things up if you want your working life to work for you!


I’m Shirley, the Change Agent.  My challenging, action-oriented approach to 121 coaching and workshops is designed to get you working “on purpose” through the “3Cs” of:


  • Who you are: values and motivations, aspirations, capabilities and personal qualities, strengths  and talents
  • Where you are going: your life and work aspirations, career direction and planning
  • How you are going to get there; plans that will work for you


  • Define success on YOUR terms
  • Shape a career or business model that is right for you
  • To step up and do what is necessary to achieve your goals


  • Develop the drive and resilience to see things through when it gets tough
  • Learn from the results of your actions and keep developing your skills and knowledge with that clear focus on the end goal.
  • Use the accountability of the coaching relationship to keep you honest


“Your life does not get better by chance. It gets better by change.” Jim Rohn

My clients are corporate professionals and small business owners.  They range from young professionals to seasoned executives, mid-life career changers, start-up entrepreneurs and owners of mature businesses.  They come from a variety of industries and backgrounds but they all have:


  • Frustrated by a perceived lack of progress
  • Engaging and energetic
  • Ambitious for themselves, their families and their work
  • They need to challenge themselves more
  • Willing to step out of their comfort zone


A sense of responsibility

  • Willing to reflect on past events behaviours and open up even if it’s a little painful
  • Accepting of feedback and challenge from others
  • Take responsibility for their results
  • Commit fully to the change process



A sense of fun

  • a great sense of humour
  • They know not to take themselves too seriously



My style isn’t for everyone so we start with a clarity call and take it from there

The Clarity Call

Book a free 15 minute conversation to find out if I am the coach for you

The Kickstart

One-off coaching sessions

The Accelerator

A one-off 3 hour coaching intensive

The Reboot

6 powerful 121 coaching sessions ideal for role change or business scale-up

With the exception of the Accelerator, our conversations generally take place via Zoom videoconference, Facetime or phone. Face to face conversations are available, especially to local clients, but may incur additional travel expenses to the Change Agent which would be agreed upfront and are payable by the client.

You played a key role in me obtaining my new job. I knew my previous role was not the right one for me but you helped to identify what I required from a job to be fulfilled, what motivates me. Your assistance with interview preparation and technique was brilliant and allowed me to feel calm and confident for my interview. I am truly grateful for the support and encouragement you have given me.
C.M. St. AlbansFinding the right next step
Overall, I found the process very helpful, supportive and insightful. When I first came to you, I knew partly what I didn’t want from a job/career, but was unclear on what I did want. The sessions provided a platform to discuss my thoughts, ideas and jumbled views in a supportive, professional and totally confidential environment. I was at ease from the first few minutes and knew I could talk in total confidence and trust.
A.B.R SwindonA new direction
I came away feeling more positive ‘about me’ and it did give me the confidence to search for other opportunities. Coaching also reaffirmed what I thought I knew about myself to be true.
A.M. SwindonGetting clear on my skills and strengths
Shirley's professional and caring approach was different to other coaches I had come across. She gave me the time to unravel what was going on for me. Her questions helped me discover what was really important for me to move forward on, which could have easily disappeared at the bottom of the to-do list. Her insight into my patterns and behaviour were really helpful for me to understand why am behaving the way I am, and therefore what I can do to change it. Thank you Shirley for helping me take the right next step.
J.N. SwindonUnravelling ideas and priorities
I had an insightful session with Shirley following my DISC sale person profile. Shirley has provided me with the knowledge and information to discover who are my ideal clients for both my businesses so that I can focus specifically on those individuals that I enjoy working with and who would benefit the most from my own expertise. I would recommend going through this process with Shirley to really focus your mind on how to grow your business with the right people. Thank you Shirley.
R.F. SwindonFocusing on the right clients
I needed a kickstart to help me move forward with a second business, which had been languishing for a little while. In a couple of sessions, Shirley helped me to find some focus and unblock some of the barriers which had been holding me back. She helped me work on improving my confidence as well as making some key business decisions. Her insightful approach was of great benefit and I would definitely recommend her if need help getting unstuck in your career or business

Shirley is an excellent coach, not least because she is one of the most insightful people I have met. She really gets to the root of an issue and has made some very helpful suggestions which I am now working through.
J.S. Swindon
"Shirley is an intelligent and thoughtful professional coach. She's inquisitive and rather than taking a standard "top down" / standard questions approach, her methods are more engaging and collaborative. Shirley has a substantial corporate experience which provides her with the informed platform to engage constructively and develop a deep relationship with her clients. I recommend her!"
P.R. London
With Shirley’s help I have developed a mindset which allows me to take on any situation with a winning mentality. Shirley also has the ability to make you feel completely at ease and her style of coaching allows for self-exploration which enables you to find the solutions for yourself. She follows up often so you have the feeling that she is always there for you”.
