Vicky enjoyed an extremely successful career in sport as a coach, mentor and trainer working with a wide range of organisations, elite, professional and amateur athletes, as well as introducing children to sport. A particular highlight of Vicky’s career in sport came when she worked with Dame Kelly Homes, and The Dame Kelly Homes Trust where she supported elite athletes as they transitioned from professional sport into retirement and, in all cases, new careers. The effect of Vicky’s work was profound and her role as a coach and mentor clearly empowered the elite athletes she worked with to transition into new lives and careers; in fact to become the people they wanted to become. This work was, in turn, a catalyst for Vicky to also re-evaluate her life and career. Vicky decided to retrain as a psychotherapist. Vicky chose psychotherapy in particular because of its unique ability to enable her to develop a two-way conversational relationship with her clients. Vicky describes psychotherapy as a ‘talking therapy’. Vicky studied whilst continuing her coaching, mentoring and training businesses and business people to become the best version of themselves and achieve business success. Since qualifying as a psychotherapist, Vicky has also built up an extremely successful private practice (currently with a waiting list) specialising in children and young people’s mental health, as well as working with businesses and organisations helping them to understand the complex subject of mental health, stress and resilience with respect to their employees. In this guise Vicky regularly works with Chief Executives, Senior Managers, business owner/managers and charitable organisations.
Vicky is an extremely engaging and vibrant speaker and panellist who has spoken at many events both large and small including conferences, exhibitions, conventions and executive briefings for organisations and companies including (and not limited to) The Institute of Directors (IoD), The NHS, Loughborough College, Experian, Vistage, DHL, City Care, Fisher German, Creative Tops, Chamber of Commerce and Chesham Preparatory School. Vicky has also passed comment on as well as written numerous articles exploring big topical and often gritty issues including resilience, mental health, self-leadership, emotional intelligence and emotional well-being, managing change, stress and the workplace, and choice. These have been published locally, regionally and nationally in both the mainstream and industry press (titles include the Telegraph, Vistage magazine, Business Issues, Niche, Urban Fox and Credit Management). Further, Vicky has taken part in live debates on Radio 4, the World Service and BBC Radio Nottingham.
