I launched Redwood Ellis because I wanted to offer a personal hands-on approach to collaborating with teams and individuals.


As a wellbeing strategist, I use coaching and employee engagement tools to give real time feedback to the business. These 1:1's result in the employee feeling listened to and the employer having evidence-based data on what the teams’ thoughts and views are of the business and how this is affecting their wellbeing and productivity. This proven technique helps senior leaders plan future strategies and helps creates a positive culture.


As a coach, I am passionate about individuals finding their voice and confidence to make positive changes in their life.


My Background


In my 35 years in business, I have worked in senior roles in the public, private and charity sectors. 


British Airways introduced the first ever 'Cultural Change' programme in the 90's. I was recruited to design, write and train the trainers for the wellbeing unit of the 3-day residential programme for 14,000 crew. The focus of this was to develop ways to look after crews’ wellbeing in challenging environments – not dissimilar to the challenges teams face today.


Working in the national event industry with large teams, enabled me to hone my employee engagement and team building skills. I am passionate about building happy resilient teams. Work should be a secure environment where teams feel valued. I believe this can be achieved by increasing employee engagement, motivation and wellbeing.


I volunteer for two charities - MindSpace, as a wellbeing strategist & facilitating a women's group and Yes Futures, as an Impact Coach; this charity runs programmes designed to empower students to reach their full potential by boosting self-awareness, confidence, resilience and communication skills


I am naturally caring and have high emotional intelligence coupled with strong team focus, business acumen and excellent communication skills. 


I have studied for an ICF accredited diploma in transformational coaching, with Animas Centre for Coaching, certificates in; COVID-19: Psychological First Aid (PHE) counselling (stage 1 & 2), mental health first aid and mental health advocacy in the workplace, conflict resolution, employee engagement (OU), safeguarding (Adults & Children), health safety & welfare. I have an enhanced DBS check and full insurance. 

Why Redwood?


These beautiful Redwood trees (Giant Sequoia) are in our garden.  They were planted 120 years ago by an intrepid explorer from the village. They are considered to be a symbolism of wellness, safety, longevity, wisdom, and communication.
