Full Potential Groupâ„˘ Executive Coach
â€śWhen I work with clients I enable them to find the wellsprings of their growth, joy and success. Whether we are focusing on relationships, work, spirituality, major life transitions, pleasure, transforming stress, finance â€“ or all of it! â€“my intention will be the same: to support people to clear away blocks which diminish their experience of life and to assist them in reconnecting to their core wisdom and power. As a result, a personâ€™s inner and outer life will be working together, so that their goals will be both achievable and sustained.
My hope is that, in time, I will be redundant because my clients will have developed their own inner coach who will believe in them as much as I do, support them endlessly, keep them in balance and encourage them into the fullest expression of their being.â€ť
With a rich wealth of experience, blending education and psychotherapy, itâ€™s no surprise that Edna brings a multitude of facets to her work. Her approach â€“ to combine the deeply transformative with the light and fun, together with a hefty dose of intuition â€“ is a powerful mix that has been embraced by the many people sheâ€™s supported over the years.
Edna worked in education for 14 years, as an English teacher, careers advisor, school counsellor and adult studies tutor before gaining extensive local authority experience as a counselling trainer for the London Borough of Bexley and a stress management trainer for the London Borough of Hillingdon. This was followed by 15 years working in psychotherapy and clinical supervision private practice.
When not working or writing, Edna goes walking, gives poetry readings and loves blue grass music.
Edna has been working internationally with individuals and groups for over 25 years. She is a coach, coach supervisor, stress management consultant and workshop leader. As a coach, her focus is on issues such as stress transformation, transpersonal coaching, relationship awareness and emotional intelligence â€“ elements she also brings to her work as a coaching supervisor, stress management consultant and psychotherapist.
In 2001 Edna pioneered the first Supervision Service for coaches in the UK. She is also a talented and popular speaker and workshop facilitator. Her favourite presentation areas include â€śChange your thinking, change your life; Mind, body, spirit detoxâ€ť and â€śDonâ€™t choose stressâ€ť, where she weaves classic foundations together with uplifting, reflective and interactive explorations into poetry and art.
In these contexts, Edna has worked with a wide range of individuals and groups. Companies and organisations that she has worked for include DBM, Hanover Foundations, Sussex Police, Channel 4, Microsoft, ntl, PSNI and the Pellin Institute, Italy.
