I am a personal development and business coach as well as being a highly respected ORDIT registered ADI which means I not only teach people to drive but also develop driving instructors to be the best they can be. I am able to combine my coaching with my in-depth knowledge of driving tuition to help you set driving goals, identify any gaps in your driving knowledge, and challenge unhelpful thinking and beliefs that may be the cause of nerves and anxiety.
Here is my own driving development journey:
My working life has always revolved around driving. I started my driving career working for Royal Mail, gaining my LGV class 1 license at the age of 21, and have been passionate about driving ever since! After many years and experiences on the road, I wanted a career change to promote safer driving and once I started training as an instructor I knew I'd made the right decision and never looked back.
I was immediately interested in Continuing Professional Development as I've always wanted to be the best trainer I can be. I started with my Fleet badge and progressed onto BTEC Level 4 with Tri-Coaching. This made an almost immediate difference to both my pupils and the growth of my business and was also reflected in my next Check Test where I was graded level 6 on all elements.
Becoming an aCCeLerate trainer was the obvious next step as I wholeheartedly believe that a coaching approach is the way forward in promoting safer drivers on the road. Continuing my own CPD I am now trained to teach others to become a driving instructor using the new Tri-Coaching program, became ORDIT registered in 2017, and also offer independent instructor training.
In 2014 I attended the DriverMetrics® accreditation course, delivered personally by Dr. Lisa Dorn at Cranfield University. I am now a DriverMetrics® accredited coach delivering Insight into Action™ Driver Coaching sessions.
In 2017 I became a regional partner for Caledonian Learner Driver Training and enjoy helping other ADI’s to grow their own successful business.
My passion for coaching has led me to explore coaching outside of the driver training industry to study with the Coaching Academy. I have studied for the Diploma in Personal Development and Diploma in Small Business Coaching during 2019. I continued my learning journey by completing an NLP practitioners’ course in early 2020 as well as becoming accredited to carry out DISC personality profiling with teams and individuals.
