Lyn Paxman


Coach, facilitator, trainer



I work with people who understand – we’re in this together, working  alongside you, to get to know you, your team and your organisation so I can get underneath what the real development need is and make positive change happen together.

I work with the leadership team, Founder or CEO to evolve and implement people solutions that work for your organisation.  I will literally sit alongside you as we work it out together, mentoring, coaching, creating – but you will have the ownership and the understanding of how to develop those solutions further in the future. 

My coaching sessions and workshops are experiential and varied – we move and map things out, we use indoor and outdoor space, we listen, we talk, we reflect. Using variety and ‘whole brain’ experiences means that learning sticks. I incorporate real life scenarios & issues where possible – providing participants the opportunity to solve and implement immediately.


About Me

I’ve worked with a wide variety of organisations from large corporates such as B&Q, BUPA, Kwik Fit, mydentist and Muller.  Public sector, retail, service, hospitality, healthcare, charities and community interest companies.  And smaller, changing or growing organisations which are my favourite clients, because I can really work alongside you and we can build solutions together which really reflect your culture and ways of working.

I’ve also set up my own highly successful team within a multi-million pound corporate, so I understand the challenges of developing yourself & working with others.  As well as developing an acquisition pipeline for a dental corporate start up – so I’ve worked at the ‘coal face’ too!

Because of my varied experience I adapt to working with any kind of organisation.  This also means I have a depth of experience and knowledge which is literally at my fingertips, so I can share insights and reflections as the needs arise.

I keep my skills and knowledge up to date, CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) qualified, an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) practitioner & having over 20 years of experience as a coach and facilitator I take my continuous development seriously and have recently completed a Foundation in Transactional Analysis, which is all about ourselves in relationship to others, and developing more effective interactions. 

I have held a couple of non-exec board positions, previously as Chair for Fordhall Community Land Initiative and currently as a board member with Wessex Resolutions.

I work nationally and live in Somerset, so I’m passionate about recognising the South West as an attractive option for developing businesses.

My favourite thing about living in Somerset is that I am never far from the sea.  The best thing about that is eating fish and chips on the beach!
