Beverley McMaster - Leadership Coach

I am a trained and certified somatic and ontological coach. Since 2010 I have been working with both corporate and individual clients. I specialise in developing what lies below the conscious radar (the physical and emotional).  Essentially I believe that whether a person is a CEO or just starting out in the corporate world, everyone turns up to work a human being and it is at this level that we need to connect. 

Prior to coaching professionally I enjoyed a career in Senior HR Roles working with Tesco, Nestle Purina and The Carphone Warehouse amongst others. I’ve worked in Matrix, European and American environments, lived and worked abroad and I speak Spanish.

Clients I've worked with include: 


What Others Have Said...

"I met Beverley as part of a broader development programme.  She was able to grasp the situations I presented to her quickly and focus on what it was I needed at that time.  Whilst encouraging me  to find different perspectives and solutions, her support was both practical and pragmatic.  Beverley is somebody who you can connect with easily, she listens well and is able to really dig beneath the surface of what is there.  I have no hesitation in recommending her."

Vernon Bubb, Head of Linked In Sales Solutions EMEA, LinkedIn


After a steep career trajectory my exciting new environment called for a whole new understanding of myself and how I was perceived if I was to be successful.  Beverley has the ability to make you feel very comfortable whilst fluently exploring your needs.  She empowered me to challenge my pre-conceptions and worked with me on not allowing these to affect my communication and sense of self worth.  I have particularly benefited from her coaching on how to hold my own in challenging situations, allowing me to decline and insist with dignity.  My eyes have been opened to a new and very important skill that I know I will be using and benefiting from for years to come.

Rochelle Read, Global Revenue Optimization Director, Expedia


My team reported back that they found Beverley to be both supportive and challenging coach with the capacity to ask the difficult questions in a calm and non-judgemental way.  There were a number of  sticky scenarios particularly around working with other functions and with Beverley’s support they were successful in holding their ground and achieving what their objectives.  I know Beverley helped them face the challenges and take appropriate action.  I would not hesitate recommending Beverley or working with her again at some point in the future.

This is not coaching out of a text book; no pat 'one size fits all' approaches with cheesy acronyms. Beverley brings to her sessions calm, wisdom, empathy, insight, wide business experience and study, and most importantly the ability to listen and question, ensuring that the experience is tailored for the individual. Our sessions provided an opportunity to step back from the maelstrom of work to reflect on some specific challenges within the business, but also broader questions such as what sort of leader do I want to be, how can I increase my impact and effectiveness,  and what are the values I want to bring to my work.

I benefited immensely from her empathy and determination to unpick the 'givens' and to help me push my thinking. To have someone on my side, as sounding board, confidante, devil's advocate, teacher and cheerleader, made a major transition at a challenging time much more achievable. Beverley draws upon a wide range of disciplines to provide a truly holistic approach.  The emphasis on embodied learning has helped me to own my leadership and strength in a work context, and more broadly in my personal life. I can’t thank her enough for helping me to move on.

Elaine Collins, Director of Global Partnerships

Beverley helped me to become aware of my own strengths, and the best proof of success for me is that I have been promoted since I began coaching. I am convinced that this input helped me to be ready for that next step. 

Ingrid Sierra - European Head of Customer Marketing

I met Beverley during quite a challenging period at work.   She created a safe, supportive and respectful space in which we could explore the changes I wanted to make.  Empathetic in her approach, it is easy to trust her integrity and honesty. She brings a flexibility and knowledge to her work that supported me in developing new ways of influencing, engaging and leading my team and others around me.    My ability to manage multiple, often conflicting demands, to listen and to negotiate different outcomes improved as a result of the work we did.   I happily recommend her.   

Dave Lole - Customer Services Director EMEA


Beverley is an engaging coach who put me at ease, allowing me to discuss and explore a range of key development areas. Perceptive questioning opened up areas outside of my comfort zone and helped me make some real changes. I am armed with new perspectives, insights and tools to develop to the next level of my career. This was time and money well invested as a sense check in my professional path & personal development.

Working with Beverley has been a very rewarding experience.  Beverley is patient and understanding but is also challenging and encourages a different way of thinking.  I have been working with Beverley for some time now and have faced various challenges during this time.  Beverley has helped me to look at the situation from a different perspective and helped me see my own motivations as well as the motivations of others to help me come up with the right course of action.  Working with Beverley has helped me to see and react to situations differently and this has produced very positive results.  I would highly recommend Beverley as a coach.
