Yvonne has worked with New Zealand Public Service clients for several years. Her own career as a lawyer was in the private sector in the UK and New Zealand.  As a coach/facilitator, she works with clients both in the public and private sectors in New Zealand and overseas. 

Yvonne’s coaching style is open, flexible and empathic. Yvonne challenges/stretches clients, challenging their self-imposed limitations. Rather than using a coaching formula, Yvonne partners with her clients to achieve the best possible coaching outcome to meet their needs. 

Yvonne supports clients beyond creating insight, to making long-lasting behavioural and attitudinal shifts to achieve long-term change. A private sector background brings a different world view and an ability to offer clients a different perspective on how to handle their situations.

Yvonne is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coach Federation and Certified Positive Intelligence ® Coach (see positiveintelligence.com)

She has a special interest in:

  • Women in leadership
  • Developing a positive and growth mindset
  • Identifying a leadership purpose
  • Addressing the imposter syndrome
  • Clear communication
  • Leaders as coaches
  • Developing resilience, overcoming fear and negative self-talk
  • Dealing with conflict.
