Leadership, career, and executive coaching for private clients or individuals in organisations

At HM Coaching and Development, I (Hannah) will take time to understand your needs and context, talking with you to identify the right focus and approach for our work together. I view coaching very much as a partnership and coach across four broad areas:

Strategy & change

Creating spaces in your working week where you can reflect on your changing times. Working with you to identify ways you can hone, shift, and move with them. 


To communicate is to impart and share in such a way that brings union. But how do we do this in ways that are right for us, and when is conflict actually quite a good thing?

Value-based leadership

Working with you to identify what you value and what value you want to create for yourselves and those around you.

Well-being in working life

At HM Coaching and Development, I do not coach for quick fixes but for long-lasting and sustainable changes that will promote your well-being and the well-being of the people, systems, and environments you care about.

Coaching programmes for individuals

Once we have decided to work together we will agree on ways of working including payment.

Foundation session

I offer all clients a two-hour foundation session where we will explore your wider context and identify the best focus for our work together. Further sessions last 45 minutes to one hour.

A typical programme

6-10 sessions, with each session a few weeks in-between. Change happens in the in-between spaces: this is where you begin to put the fruit from our thinking times into action.

Regular spaces to think

I meet with some clients weekly or bi-weekly for shorter 30 minute sessions over a longer period. These can helpful for busy people who struggle to find space in their day but value having regular spaces to think with an impartial and professionally trained thinking partner.

Tailored to you

If you are unsure what approach is best, a good option is to pay for a number of hours up-front and top up when necessary. We can then design and adapt our times together as they work best for you.

What sectors have I worked in?

My clients have worked in fintech, start-ups, secondary and higher education, legal services, welfare advice, marketing communications, charities, and faith organisations. This increases with every new client and I love this breadth.

"Under Hannah’s guidance, I have not only seen a noticeable improvement in my communication skills but also gained a deeper understanding of my own capabilities and how to leverage them effectively in a corporate environment. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to elevate their communication skills to the next level."

Senior Executive, Investment Management

"With Hannah's help, I successfully renegotiated and renovated my working environment. The organisation has restructured my job, which means I've moved teams within the company. This allows me to use my knowledge, giftings, and talent, and makes me feel far more productive and valued!"

Charity sector professional, wanting to make a change

"I have worked together with Hannah for a year now and we have a very positive working relationship - we’ve worked through a lot of my initial imposter syndrome at work and she has made me realise many things about myself. I love having an outsider’s view and Hannah guides you through the topic effortlessly, challenging ideas and giving different perspectives. I cannot recommend her enough."

Early career executive, CRM

"I'm at a real crossroads in my work and personal life and have felt like I've been jumping from one possible direction to another and another. Hannah has helped me to clarify what my passion is and what is truly important to me. She has helped me immensely in getting me to move forward with a tangible and strategic plan to step out into the next stage of my life."

Secondary school department head, career and life coaching

What would you say to someone in your position who is considering being coached by Hannah?

“Go for it. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what Hannah can help you uncover.”

Deepthi de Silva-Williams (she/her), Head of Brand, The University of Edinburgh

"Hannah has a wonderful calm presence and is skilled in helping people to look at things from a different perspective. I would recommend her to anyone who wanted that time to reflect on what is holding them back from moving forwards."
