Sue Mitchell - Executive Coach in Carrington, United Kingdom

Dr. Sue Mitchell

Profession: Executive Coach

About Me & My Practice

I am English, living in Scotland, and I coach people from all around the world and walks of life by telephone and Skype. Skype is good because not only is it free to talk, we can also have face to face sessions online if we choose to use a video cam with it. Please do send me an email at to arrange a Skype meeting, or telephone +44 845 6436 084.

I encourage, energise and challenge you in a supportive and safe environment to help you gain fresh perspectives, clearer thinking, better focus and the motivation to make the changes you want. Through working in partnership with you, listening actively and asking the “naïve” and provoking questions, I will help you recognise and challenge your assumptions, make clear, motivational plans and be confident to take action to achieve your goals.

Much of my coaching focuses at the start around raising your own self-awareness, particularly around personal values, motivation, beliefs and purpose. When you raise your unconscious knowledge about "who I am and what is important to me" into your conscious thoughts, it makes it a lot easier to make choices and decisions about what you really want to do and to deal with whatever issues brought you to coaching in the first place. I inspire my clients to be motivated by helping them know their own personal purpose and to value time they invest in re-energising themselves and doing things they enjoy.

I specialise in coaching business owners, leaders, managers, and aspiring leaders and managers, who are considering their career, preparing for promotion, or stepping up into a new role, whether that is first time as a manager to moving up to a C-level position. On the personal development side, I specialise in developing mental toughness, emotional intelligence, leadership, teamwork, confidence and self-esteem, and life balance (or work life balance!). On the business side, I specialise in purpose, vision, teams, creating direction and strategy.

I work with people 1:1 in person and by telephone and Skype, as well as group coaching, facilitation and training. Why not also consider a private "development retreat" with a friend, colleague or group up to four people, which is ideal to develop emotional intelligence, mental toughness and leadership styles, all of which are proven to make the difference between the most successful leaders and managers and those that "get by". Stay in a fabulous traditional period apartment in the centre of Edinburgh, capital of Scotland, and combine your personal leader development with time to reflect and also have fun exploring this exciting city. We all know how much more we learn when we're having a good time!

My coaching qualifications include:
Diploma Excel "The Corporate and Executive Coaching Programme." and Certificate in Personal Performance Coaching accredited by The Coaching Academy (UK); NLP Business Practitioner, Society for NLP.
I hold licenses to deliver Psychometric Profiling for: Emotional intelligence (Baron EQ-i) Leadership styles (ILM72), Mental Toughness (MTQ48), and personality (a Big5 test). My professional memberships include Association for Coaching (AC, Full Member) and Institute for Leadership and Management (ILM, Associate Member).

My coaching practise is informed through my experience, training and continual professional development as a coach, and also my learning journey with every client as we work in partnership on their own individual aspirations and problems. I believe I learn something new from my course participants every time I deliver training and group facilitation for leader development and other courses, such as licensed user training for mental toughness and leadership style profiling. I am lucky to draw on a unique wealth of experience and knowledge through my previous international careers as expedition director and research biologist and as a top level Instructor Trainer for the British Sub Aqua Club.
