ANGHARAD COOPER Coaching, Consultancy and Facilitation
I am a Relational Dynamics 1st qualified coach and facilitator with experience of working with a diverse range of clients across the arts, cultural and social sectors, in both 1:1 and group settings. Coaching can be a powerful tool to identify goals; activate the imagination; overcome 'stuckness' and to craft different futures - both short term and long term - as a response to the challenging situations we find ourselves in, and with the resources we have available.
Past and present clients include: Somerset House Studios and Creative Careers Academy, Music in Detention, the British Council, Sound and Music, London Philharmonic Orchestra as well as individuals from Arts Council England; Forestry Commission England and Paraorchestra, artists, writers, students and many others seeking to create new perspectives and change.
I am an accredited member of the Association for Coaching, attend regular supervision sessions with a coaching supervisor, and abide by the BACP ethical framework.

'I've never had a coach before, and didn't know what to expect. Happily, Angharad's an excellent listener, a super smart thinker and was really able to help me gather and structure my thoughts. She comes from a place of understanding the sometimes random nature of creativity, and I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for a sounding board for ideas big or small.
Lloyd Coleman, Artistic Director (Paraorchestra), composer and broadcaster
'Angharad is an exemplar of integrity for the coaching and consultancy industry. In the time that I’ve been working with her, she has helped me turn thoughts into strategic actions that have led to positive life results. As my coach, her approachability, calmness, intellect and insight helps me to focus on actions that sustain and build on my passion for (as well as my contribution towards) music and the arts. I highly recommend working with her.'
Dike Okoh, songwriter, producer, playwright and teacher
'Working with Angharad has been wonderful. She is an excellent coach and has enabled me to develop new insights and practical approaches to taking the next steps towards my goals.'
Hayley Skipper, Centenary Culture and Engagement Programme Lead, Forestry Commission England
'Having Angharad as my coach enabled me to process my thoughts in a way I had been unable to do by myself. Problem solving the real issues as to why I was struggling, to focus on what I needed to do to move forward with my music. I'm now on the right path and looking forward to progressing further, sooner.'
Graham Prior, Guitarist and Songwriter

'Though I had never worked with a life coach before, it had been something in the back of mind for years. What I thought would be a one-off discussion has turned into us working together monthly and I can genuinely say it has greatly influenced my life. Angharad helped me figure out what it is I should be doing with my life in order to feel aligned with my passions, and in only a few short sessions we've been able to map out a strategy to get there. I would highly recommend working with her if you are given the chance!'
