About Us



Notion is a specialist Business Coaching Company established in 2000.


We are passionate about coaching Managing Directors and Business Owners.
As your Business Coach our job is to build upon and improve your talents as Business professionals, focusing you on driving profitable business growth whilst simultaneously putting in place a balanced lifestyle (yes it is possible!)


Our team is currently 15 strong and growing all the time. In addition, we draw upon our extensive network of high calibre specialists to enhance our team for specific projects with our larger corporate clients.


The team is headed up by Dominic Ashley-Timms (our MD) who has a great track record in both operational business and blue chip consultancy, where his clients have ranged from the likes of Sainsbury’s and The Royal Bank of Scotland through to start up businesses.


His passion for outstanding customer service led him to create Notion to specialise in supporting and developing SME’s. This is predominantly achieved through our one to one Business Coaching as well as Business Coaching Workshops and other bespoke training and strategic consultancy.

Dominic - Business Coach


As well as guiding the development of Notion, Dominic constructs and delivers bespoke training for our clients’ organisations. 


Laura - Business Coach

Our other Director, Laura Ashley-Timms, is one of our Outstanding Business Coaches and ensures that our exacting professional standards are maintained.


Her passion for Coaching stems from her early sporting career where she experienced first hand the benefits of making continual improvements to her performance and from being constantly motivated and challenged by her coaches.


These lessons stayed with her throughout her international business career, which has included senior roles within Marks and Spencer and Ragdoll Productions.


As a Business Coach, Laura consistently gets amazing results for those brave enough to work with her!


Do pick up the phone to either Dominic or Laura if you ever want to discuss how we can continue to improve our services.


In addition to Laura we have 11 other Outstanding Business Coaches covering different parts of the country. You can meet all of them on Meet Our Business Coaches page.


They are all unique and all of an excellent calibre. All have many years experience of delivering Business Coaching, are highly qualified and passionate about getting results for their clients.


Julia is our Marketing Manager and has the most challenging role, running the office, heading up our Marketing and Administration departments and managing our Marketing team. She is of course the heart of our company.

“Martin made more sense to me in our first hour than the rest of my life put together. His empathetic but direct approach to solving life’s difficulties is the most amazing experience…and the results are breathtaking”


Allison McQueen-Luzar, Consultant Nutritionist, Subaru World Rally Team


“Laura quickly helped me realise what I really wanted to achieve, both in my business and personal life, and to believe that it was possible…. Laura is always there to give me a guiding hand and help me realise that, by following my action plans, I’m still on the right path to fulfilling my dreams. Laura makes you work hard but is considerate and flexible too. She is always prepared to discuss issues or concerns as they arise and to change what has been planned at the drop of a hat.”

“It has been great to have a sounding board that is independent of our organisation.”


“I found Cathy unfailing in her passion for the business and our work together and incredibly resourceful in the perspectives and advice she was able to offer. I most valued the quality of her listening and her unflinching integrity.”


“Laura has forced me to confront and re-evaluate previously held convictions and to focus on critical factors that have helped me to determine my future objectives.”
