Meet your coach - Valerie Everitt
I’m a professional coach, trainer and facilitator, highly experienced in working with individuals and groups to maximise performance and potential. Before setting up Cambridge Coaching Consultancy, I worked at senior level in a leading professional membership organisation, rising to become a main board director and also director of education. In 2010, I was recognised with an industry impact award for my work in developing a new suite of vocational qualifications in facilities management.
My move into the business world came after a successful career in education as teacher, teacher trainer and course director, roles which gave me a real insight into how people learn, develop and are motivated to succeed.
When I discovered management coaching as a powerful tool in helping me achieve my own career goals, it was only a matter of time before deciding to qualify as a coach myself. Working through a life coaching course whetted my appetite and I knew I wanted to learn at a deeper level. So, in late 2006 I took the plunge with a week long intensive coaching skills programme, where I was assessed for my suitability for the next stage of the qualification. Fitting in the experientially based training and coaching practice alongside a demanding work schedule was challenging but very satisfying and, in 2008, I completed the highly respected postgraduate diploma in Executive Coaching and Mentoring, accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management.
Professional coaching has been invaluable to me in managing my own career progression, contributing to business success and dealing positively with the change and transitions that life inevitably throws at you. Setting up Cambridge Coaching Consultancy is my commitment that coaching can work for you too, helping you overcome obstacles, realise your ambitions and receive the rewards and recognition you deserve.
