To take time to think, is to gain time to live
I have been very fortunate to work for a variety of organisations with multi-cultural, multi-disciplined teams. In particular, I have extensive experience of supporting, developing and managing individuals and multiple teams globally - both nascent and well-established - through challenging situations, periods of growth and change, often remotely. I provide a range of support to organisations and individuals to support leaders to be the best version of themselves, help their teams be successful and have a bigger impact in their important work.

"Tori and I worked together for a few great years... Her passion, drive and work ethic were admirable and meant she could always be counted on to provide support and advice where needed. We successfully worked together to develop a roadmap for the development of a new country programme and team. Her aptitude for organisational development through consultative processes were clearly demonstrated through this process."
Marc Fruitema - Technical Lead Marine Conservation, Planet Indonesia
It's rare these days that we make time for ourselves and our own personal development. How often do you feel truly listened to and actually feel heard? Amongst the noise of social media, 24-hour emails, and the expectations that accompany them, it is often hard to slow down, focus and connect with others, let alone ourselves. When do you make time for what is important, not just 'urgent'?
Coaching is an opportunity to have a thought-provoking, confidential conversation. Time to think and take stock, re-balance, reflect and focus on what is important to help you reach your potential - the world needs you to be at your best, now more than ever!
Perhaps you want to increase your productivity and impact at work and in the world, be a better manager and leader whilst finding a better work-life balance. Maybe you're feeling stuck or want to progress in, or change your career, or are going though a transition. Perhaps you have long-term goals you want to work towards.
My business and personal coaching packages can help with all of these situations and much more!
I believe in coaching the whole person and whether you want help with a work or personal issue, we'll probably end up exploring lots of the different pillars of coaching.
I am particularly passionate about supporting clients in their leadership challenges and transitions into leadership roles, as working through a series of my own challenges, I came to realise that people are an organisation’s most valued asset and supporting both personal, team wellbeing and resilience is paramount.
I support a range of people through coaching but if you work in conservation coaching see Conservation Coaching for more details.
I offer group coaching and 1:1 sessions.
Varied background before coaching. Over 13 years of experience working with a variety of not-for-profit organisations and large charitable bodies, organising events and managing, leading and developing programmes and teams.
Over 150 hours of team and individual coaching experience since qualifying. I use my experience to support you in the most useful way at the most useful time.
Postgraduate Certificate in Personal & Business Coaching (in progress). I have a wide range of tools and approaches to draw from and understand the theory underpinning coaching, so we can find the right approach for you.
Member of the International Coaching Federation, I am committed to continuing professional development and I adhere to their ethical guidelines.
Regular supervision enables me to focus on my own personal development so that I can be the best coach for you and ensures I am adhering to the ICF code of ethics.
High levels of empathy and a respectful and intuitive listener.
The courage and willingness to tell it how it is, when you most need to hear the truth!
What others say
"Tori created a safe environment for reflection and personal discovery. Her thoughtful listening, probing questions and ability to draw parallels between behaviours helped me gain a different perspective on why and how I manage my work life. In areas I wanted to improve, she provided useful tools and approaches to help me achieve my goals."
AC, Confidence and Career Coaching, 2021
"Tori was really great at creating a safe space for me as we talked through the transitions I was going through in my career. She always had a great perspective and I had quite a few 'a-ha' moments when talking with her about myself in relation to my career, how I work and where I want to go!"
