My name is Lynne Tapper and I am the founder of communication coaching.

I believe that everyone has a right to be included and heard. Challenges with communication can create barriers and I like to work with people to help them knock these barriers down.

As a trained life coach I work with people to help them develop their personal and professional goals.  I work with people who may be feeling overwhelmed as they approach a new phase in life or with people who feel a bit stuck and want the opportunity to have some dedicated thinking space to explore what their next step could be.

I am a Speech and Language Therapist with over 25 years experience working in the NHS.  Early on in my career I recognised the effectiveness of using a therapeutic approach which enabled people to identify their own way forward, setting specific personalised goals and the actions required to achieve these. I have attended various short courses in order to develop my approach including brief solution focused therapy, motivational interviewing, using Socratic questioning, building clients self esteem and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy which culminated in taking a PG Certificate course in Business and Personal Coaching in 2018 and I am now nearing completion of the formal qualification process. 

I have experience working with people who have sensory impairments and also with people who are autistic. I usually see people on an individual basis however I also have experience running group coaching sessions for small groups who share common goals.

Communication is a two way street – I offer coaching and training to parents, teachers, partners, employers  and indeed anyone who recognizes the need to change their own communication style to be more inclusive towards the people in their lives who communicate differently from them.

If you’re interested in having some coaching please get in touch to see if I can help.
