‘To come out from behind our selves in a living and imaginative way is one of the necessary disciplines of our time’.
Angela Watson has always had a passion for unleashing people’s potential. After 20 years working for public and private sector organisations in nursing, sales, teaching, and management, she decided to work directly for other people by helping them coach themselves and others.
Angela started her own journey in coaching in 2007. She qualified as an NLP (Coach) Practitioner in 2007; going on to qualify as a Clean Language Practitioner in 2008, NLP Master Practitioner and NLP Trainer in 2009, and as an Executive Coach in 2010. But her journey as a coach has never been about external labels or badges, but finding a way of working which expressed her self, and who she is.
She works with coaches wishing to specialise in career transition coaching and coaches looking to set up their own coaching business, or make a significant change.
A post-graduate lecturer in Coaching at Bristol Business School, University of the West of England, over the last 7 years Angela has trained, mentored and supervised 500+ qualified coaches and those working through the coaching qualification and accreditation process. Many have gone on to take the plunge and started their own coaching consultancy or are in the process of doing so. Whether you are new to and starting out in coaching, or are looking to develop specialist skills in career transition coaching Angela is committed to helping you learn the tools, models, and techniques to be a successful career transition coach.
As well as delivering coach training programmes, Angela also coaches, mentors and supervises coaches who are in the process of transition to a new role themselves.

“I recently had the great good fortune to be trained and mentored by Angela on a series of coaching courses. Angela is wise, experienced and inspirational. She not only teaches her craft meticulously but provokes her students to exceed their personal boundaries, think for themselves and to research widely beyond the confines of the subject to gain deeper insights, broader horizons and greater self awareness.
