Professional excellence and sound personal values make strong business partners
My core beliefs include having a strong sense of justice, fairness and honesty and it is these beliefs that enable my clear-thinking, straightforward, supportive approach that my clients love. I am able to cut through the "background noise" that often cloud personal judgement during times of great change. Clients are in agreement that my professionalism and ethical beliefs make me a sound business partner for them and their organisations.

to the nub of things.”
Sian Vasey OBE,
Director, Ealing Centre for Independent Living
“My lack of
confidence was stopping me from going for promotion in a male dominated IT environment.
I don’t lack skills or knowledge just confidence. Coaching gave me coping
mechanisms to overcome my negative emotional response I get in a stressful
situation, such as an interview or public speaking. The positive outcome was getting that
promotion and the confidence to be me. I
would definitely encourage other women to do the same.”
Skelhorn, Associate Business Analyst, Astra Zeneca

the group coaching session with the Board. Her facilitation was sensitive, intelligent
and highly appropriate.”

I hold a number of strong personal beliefs that have come to represent my own professional values.
Honesty is my number one priority. I won't take on anything I can't do and I believe in building on your strengths to find your answers. Clients like that I keep my promises and get things done quickly. I provide honest feedback on personal and business situations to help you develop progressive action plans that are well founded.
My feedback to you goes through three communications gates to ensure all views are honest, constructive and developmental.
Gate One - Is it true?
A great deal of research and diagnostic assessment will have provided the basis for this truth before the information passes through the next gate.
Gate Two - Is it kind?
This may seem idealistic but whether personal or professional communication is involved, people are still at the heart of it all and deserve to be treated respectfully. Finally, all communication passes through the third gate.
Gate Three - Is it necessary?
Even bad news can be given constructively, focused on creating a forward looking path to help you find clarity and direction.
My holistic approach is about improvement. Whether you are trying to achieve personal goals or organisational growth, areas for performance improvement can be reviewed and planned objectively.
As a member of a number of professional bodies, I am focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction - I will do everything possible to meet your expectations.
However you choose to work with Clarity Angel, I'm sure you'll be delighted with the results. A number of past clients have said positive things about the intervention and support I have provided. Look around the website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact me.
