Amber Farrier

Hi! My name is Amber, and I am delighted to meet you. I am a qualified coach, leadership trainer and whole person facilitator.

I work within a varied range of organisations including local authorities, national charities, police, NHS, and education. I am passionate about working with people and organisations that want to make a positive impact to the lives of others.

I enjoy connecting and working with people facing leadership challenges, career choices, and those wanting to challenge themselves and grow. I am passionate about bringing ‘being human’ back into leadership and life.

Coaching Profile Amber Farrier

Amber is an Executive Coach, Trainer, Facilitator and Business Consultant working with a variety of public, private and charitable organisations. Her strong management and leadership background has been gained whilst working within the Local Authority and Charitable sector as a Senior Manager.

Amber’s passion for continuous development, and belief that people are resourceful and want to work well together, has driven her career. Amber works with individuals in one-to-one development sessions as well as working with the wider organisation to develop teams that are future fit for purpose.

Amber is a whole person facilitator and is experienced in working in areas including management team development, increasing confidence, and design and delivery of bespoke management programmes. Amber is charismatic and enjoys working with organisations that recognise people as their main asset.


I accessed coaching with Amber when I was approaching a time of change and uncertainty and as a senior manager. I wanted to really take some time out to make sure that I was at the top of my game. Amber and I had a series of executive development sessions together where she listened, asked good questions and introduced tools which gave me the freedom and opportunity to explore at a deeper level what my barriers were and how I could achieve the goals which I had set. Following the success of my coaching experience with Amber, I have highly recommended coaching to several colleagues.
