What Belinda really enjoys when coaching is supporting adults in the workplace to understand more about their Neurodivergent challenges and explore their strengths to develop strategies which help manage the impact that those challenges bring. Belinda has supported clients who work in banks, teaching, hospitals and other public services as well as clients who are aiming to re-establish themselves in a working role after taking some time out.
Belinda brings a flexible, person-centered approach to her coaching. She offers a safe space to allow clients to explore their situation, how they want things to be and discover how they can use their strengths to create solutions that allow them to work at their best.
When Belinda is coaching at her best, she is calm, curious and feels a warm glow to see clients have a “lightbulb moment”; this may be seeing a strength they already have but not noticed or why a certain challenge has felt too overwhelming or recognising a step they can take to move a step closer to achieving their potential.
Belinda also worked in NHS Mental Health and Learning Disability Services for 11 years (including some departmental coaching and mentoring). She has been an Associate at Genius Within since 2016.
Outside of coaching, Belinda enjoys photography which, like Coaching, requires her to be focused and creative to look at things from a different angle to find the best perspective for a rewarding outcome.
