Passionate about working with people and businesses to become SUCCESSFUL and PROFITABLE!
Who am I and how have I ended up here?
For 22 years before and during starting my Coaching journey I worked first as a Bookkeeper/ Finance Manager and then Accountant. I run my own Bookkeeping and Accountancy business working with Sole Traders up to Medium Sized businesses and have run my own businesses for the last 10 years.
One thing that I have learned throughout my career so far is the importance of forecasting and planning especially in business as this has helped businesses I have worked with see when they need to save for and when to invest/spend/grow. Especially with the uncertain times that we are living in cash flow and planning is important! I have also learned how important it is that the business owner(s) is supported and is clear on what they want the business to achieve with an action plan in place and a motivated team working towards that outcome with them.
I decided to train in NLP and coaching, initially just for personal reasons. I was going through one of the most difficult times in my life, I had emergency open heart surgery to replace a leaking valve that had been picked up by accident at the end of 2016 and after a long recovery as I was getting back on my feet and back to "normal" my Dad passed away and my whole world changed over night, I took on a lot of debt through that and for the first time in my life I was having many sleepless nights worrying about the amount of debt I was in while also being under the most stress I had experienced and had to deal with on my own, you could say I hit rock bottom during this time and it felt like there was no way out of that situation at the time. So I looked to NLP and coaching so that I could learn the skills and get some help to change the way I was looking at my life as I KNEW there had to be a different way of looking at it and life had to be better than how I felt at that time. Through learning and also receiving coaching myself, today I'm doing what I love with a passion (helping other people to change their situation like I did myself) and my life is completely different for the better!
I first studied and qualified as an NLP Associate Practitioner and then because I saw what massive changes can happen with NLP in such short periods of time I also studied and qualified as an NLP Master Practitioner and I am and will continue to study as a Global Quest Certified Coach with The Coaching Institute.
By continuing my studies I am constantly innovating and learning the most up to date teachings based on the latest tried and tested NLP, coaching and business & personal development techniques (and putting it into a language that makes sense and is achievable for anyone) which means I will always be able to pass this knowledge onto the individuals and businesses that I work with.
Knowing what a difference these tools and techniques made to me personally and professionally and also the massive benefits I receive personally and professionally through being coached myself is what pushed me to start Amour Consulting - Mindset & Business Coaching. I now work with people and business owners that want, and most importantly, are ready to commit and make changes and transformations in their lives and their businesses. I pass on my previous knowledge and experience and the teachings that I have learned and am still learning to help individuals and business owners to change their mindsets and transform their personal and financial lives and businesses.
I only work with people that want to commit and make changes and where we are compatible, if I do not think we will work well together or if I do not think you are committed to making the changes then I won't work with you or I will recommend someone that I think will be more suitable if we are not a match.
