Executive coach


Valerie Stevenson

Valerie was part of the People Leadership team for both Andersen and Deloitte. Working in this demanding professional services environment, with involvement in both UK and global projects, Valerie developed the leadership and innovation skills that helped build the foundation to become a successful leadership coach. She has first-hand knowledge of leading transformation and designing wellbeing strategies that make a difference. Today she is an experienced executive coach, people consultant, facilitator, and wellbeing expert.

Coaching Style and Expertise

In executive and leadership coaching we are usually working with a population of management who have already achieved a good deal of success in their careers but whose future development requires them to shift perspective to augment their technical competence with a more strategic vision and level of emotional intelligence. Valerie works in partnership with the people she coaches. She is pragmatic and believes that increasing self-awareness offers great results. In today’s complex, ever-changing world Valerie creates a space for curiosity, discovery, and reflection. She has a great ’toolkit’ of resources based on research and experience.

Over the last 20 years, Valerie has been part of the successful in-house coaching team at Deloitte and an independent coach specializing in transitions, resilience, and wellbeing. Valerie strongly believes that coaching can make a real difference in organizations and people’s lives.

I have known Val both as a business leader and as a coach. Val combines these skills in her coaching in a highly effective way. She built a trusting relationship with me and supported me through a number of complex decisions, whilst steadily raising my levels of self-awareness in a way that has had long term impact. Val helped me keep a focus on what was important to me. I valued her flexible style which was both challenging and supportive at different times. I wanted an independent coach, someone who could hold the mirror up when I needed it which Val did in an open and honest way.” CEO Private Healthcare

“I have been working with Val as my coach for just over a year now. We completed an initial course of coaching that ended last summer, but given the benefits I experienced, we have since extended this and have now commenced a second course of coaching. I find Val to be very easy to talk to and she has a very common-sense approach. She helped me in gaining a fresh insight into specific events or challenges that I have shared with her as part of my coaching programme. I would have no hesitation in recommending Val as an executive coach.” Solicitor and General Counsel
