Paula Gardner: Business Psychologist and Coach

paula gardner coachI am business psychologist and coach. I help my clients to be bolder in their lives, in their careers, in their business and in their decisions.


My approach is a unique blend of business psychology and transformational coaching. I combine this with my twenty plus years of experience, skills and contacts in PR and marketing.


One of my strongest beliefs is that we can all change, start over again or seriously up-level. The problem is that we sometimes can’t envision what we do want. That can leave us feeling lost, without a map, and more likely to fall back on the same set of patterns and comfortable behaviour.


This is why change can be hard to do on your own. I am here to support you, motivate you and help you get there.

Working with me


Our work together often begins with a psychometric test. This gives us insight into your strengths, weaknesses and preferred sets of behaviours. This is rich data. It all allows us to to see behaviours, skills or patterns that you may not even be aware of yourself. I don’t have a set approach to coaching. One session may be strategic, creating a plan of action for instance, whilst another might be motivational or even delving deep into limiting beliefs or thought patterns that may be holding you back.  We work in the way that we need to in the moment and always with the desired outcomes that you came with in the first place.


Let’s see if we are a good fit. You can arrange a chat or meeting with me here
