Connecting with people is my thing
Working as a coach since 2009, I’m passionate about living with a sense of purpose and helping people become proactive designers of their professional and personal lives.
To me, coaching is a joint-venture between equals, making the quality of the relationship with clients of prime importance for successful collaboration. I bring to the table deep caring for others, humour and a light touch as well as straight talking and challenging spirit.
In our work, I draw on my pre-coaching life experience and skills. Training and working as a professional actor provided insight into the workings of the human psyche, while working in media sales, sales training, brand management and retail management developed keen commercial awareness.
As a positive change facilitator, Lab of Self tailors a program to suit your needs. We provide three types of core services: One-on-One Coaching, Group Coaching, and Workshops, to support leadership development, personal development and development of sales teams. Below is a brief description of each.
I found Rebecca’s approach to be very open and warm which helped me hugely to open up and explore the ideas, concerns and thoughts going on in my mind. Rebecca introduced many different techniques that helped me become much more aware of the thought processes and patterns that I used, some of which could be quite limiting. Over the period that we worked together I experienced liberating shifts in my thinking patterns that have helped me to see things in a more positive light, allowing me to deal with them in a calmer and more productive way. It’s an ongoing and generative process and Rebecca’s help was invaluable. I would have no hesitation in engaging with her again in the future.
I was very impressed and delighted to be able to benefit from Rebecca’s unique style and coaching approach. She’s a very attentive and intelligent person, who was always ready to challenge me when needed and support my choices and thinking when appropriate. I feel that my journey with her helped me grow as a person and get a more grounded view of my career, personal life and the space between them.
I heard of Rebecca through mutual professional contacts and when clients of mine needed an executive coach I introduced them to her. Following the success of that engagement I’ve continued recommending Rebecca. I have recently brought her on board as a coach to my recruiters, so that we – not just our clients – can benefit from her skills. I’ve found Rebecca to be insightful and extremely attentive to our organisations’ needs. Rebecca listened deeply to uncover the organisational perspective, and created a coaching process that’s aligned with our company vision and long-term objectives as well as the well-being and development of those receiving coaching directly.
Rebecca has been working with my team with 1:1 coaching, team programs and taking an active role in our semi-annual worldwide sales meetings. Rebecca’s coaching programs have made a significant impact on our sales team. I have seen them grow from a personal and professional perspective, which has impacted their day to day work, dealing with difficult sales situations, resilience and ultimately better sales results. Rebecca is very good at understanding the company’s strategy and culture and then aligning her coaching approach to fit. I would strongly recommend Rebecca as a coach for sales teams.
We work with clients either at their premises or ours.
We are based in North London, but happy to move around!
