She is accredited by the Association for Coaching and is a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council. She coaches PhD students on motivation, staying focussed and finding their voice. Natalie did her PhD part-time whilst caring for her two young daughters and working as a coach. She fully understands the need for work-study-life balance and shares practical strategies on how to juggle research and family commitments.

As a British Psychological Society Registered Applied Psychology Practice Supervisor, she supervises coaches, helping them reflect on and improve their practice. She runs the Smart Self-Care and Personal Growth Programme for Coaches and for PhD students and also Study Hubs – writing retreats with one-to-one and group coaching for PhD students and writers.

Natalie started her professional career as an investment banker and then moved into the education sector. She became an Assistant Headteacher at an ethnically diverse comprehensive school in London, where she realised the desperate need for mentoring and guidance for school students in addition to their formal academic curriculum.


Her advisory skills were honed during her 11 years as a teacher and Director of Higher Education, giving career advice to students, and through mentoring other teachers. She designed and delivered many career enhancing programmes in schools and universities. She developed an Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) accredited Leadership Programme for Middle Managers at Immanuel College, Hertfordshire and a ‘mini-MBA’ for students (also accredited by the ILM). She also set up a coaching programme for students at UCL.

Natalie researches the personal growth of university students who have professional coaching. Her doctoral research was on personal growth and the impact of coaching on university students’ values, sense of self, key relationships, academic performance and life plans for her PhD in Psychology at Birkbeck, University of London. Natalie is a graduate of the University of Oxford, Middlesex University, King’s College London, The Open University and Birkbeck, University of London.
