Personal Performance Coaching

Palma's decades of experience in resident consultation and engagement led her to train as a Personal Performance Coach so that she can be more impactful in the lives of individuals. She observed that oftentimes regeneration means doing things for and to residents can be disempowering leading to dependency.  Coaching empowers individuals to identify and make the necessary changes to enable them to live fulfilling lives. 

Today, Palma blends Community Regeneration with Life Coaching to enhance and enrich her work in social housing and in communities across the UK.

She is the Founder and Director of Soul Purpose 360 CIC, a social enterprise that coaches women in community development, with astounding results!

"From commissioning through to monitoring and delivery of the community work, Palma Black Consulting was thorough, professional and easy to deal with. Her enthusiasm, expertise and knowledge assisted and guided our work ensuring it left a positive legacy in the community".

Simon Dolby, Inspire Schools / KM Charity Team

"Innovative, driven, with excellent knowledge and skills in programme management and neighbourhood regeneration.  It was because of Palma that Hackney Council instigated a programme of estate-based Health Hubs around the borough, based on her idea, and it was because of Palma that we started our first resident-led volunteering programme on one of the Hubs". 

Lauren Tobias, Chief Executive, Volunteer Centre Hackney
