Coach Trainer - Edinburgh
Emma is one half of our brilliant Edinburgh training team. Prior to her coaching and coach training career, Emma worked in Health and social development for twenty years. Work which has included coordinating social marketing/behaviour change projects, guest lecturing on behaviour change and health development at universities and public speaking.
Furthermore, Emma has worked with children and illustrators in publishing a book that was featured in the Edinburgh Book Festival, worked for the NHS addressing inequalities within communities; including training individuals and groups, and contributed to bestselling books and several podcasts.
Despite the rich variety, Emma's work has always been about empowering individuals and this is also what drives her in her own life, making her role as Animas trainer a perfect fit!
In her coaching, Emma works alongside people who want to create change for themselves or others and those who want to enhance the world somehow. She works with "amazing humans" including creatives, authors, leaders, speakers, entrepreneurs and coaches, and people who sense they could be doing more with this one life.
Ultimately, Emma firmly believes in empowerment, and feels that it is an important part of the coaching space. She is passionate about men's health and men's wellbeing, running frequent workshops on celebrating boys, and also runs a Facebook group for mums with sons to connect with one another.
Emma brings herself and all of her experience to the training room along with a genuine belief in people and a passion for learning. She loves facilitating people to flourish in the training space. With a background very much rooted in enabling others, Emma gets a real energy from being around people and being part of the whole learning process.
Approachable, inspiring, and down-to-earth, Emma's warmth allows people to really relate to her story, which she shares like an open book. She builds trust and rapport quickly through the sharing of her experiences, insights and anecdotes from her journey thus far.
