About me

Natalie Lancer MA(Oxon), PGCE, MA (Lond), Dip Psych (Open)

I am an accredited coach and a member of the Association for Coaching. I am a graduate of the University of Oxford and King’s College London. I formerly worked in finance for an investment bank and subsequently qualified as a teacher, going on to set up an educational consultancy. Thus, I understand both corporate and educational environments. I have been coaching for seven years and I have now co-authored a book on Coaching Techniques with David Clutterbuck and David Megginson. I am also undertaking research into coaching as part of my doctorate, ensuring my knowledge and skills are at the cutting edge of coaching thinking and practice.


A name you can trust


I am a member of the EMCC UK Coaching & Mentoring in Education Forum which seeks to start the debate and set the standards of coaching in all areas of education: university, school, formal and informal.

Ongoing research


I am undertaking doctoral research at Birkbeck College, University of London, exploring the understanding students have of personal growth. I am investigating the impact coaching can have on university students’ values, sense of self, key relationships, academic performance and life plans compared to those who do not have coaching sessions.
