Hi, I’m Heather Phillips, Founder of Luminosa Coaching
I’m enjoying working successfully as a school leader in a large urban primary school in Birmingham, UK. The school is a learning oasis for 630 pupils from many and varied ethnic backgrounds. It is a ‘harmonious learning environment’ with ‘outstanding leadership’.
Although I have used coaching as part of my role for many years, a few years ago I qualified as a Personal Performance Coach with the Coaching Academy.
I use coaching to empower school leaders wherever they may be found in the UK. As well as school leaders, I support other private clients to achieve personal performance goals through my company Luminosa Coaching. I am passionate about my role as a performance coach in the education sector and know I can make a difference to the way leadership can be developed within schools. I coach with joy, with passion and with absolute commitment to my clients and their improved performance.

Why ‘Luminosa’ as a name?
I spent some years living in South America, hence the Spanish feel to my company branding. Waking up every day in a country where the sun shines every day energised me, made me happy, increased my productivity and improved my attitudes to work and life and that elusive balance! When naming my company I wanted to carry those feelings with me as I sought to provide services for Headteachers and for schools. The sunshine gave me joy, ‘bright light’ and vitality – that is the essence of Luminosa.
