I'm a facilitator, coach and psychotherapist who is passionate about supporting women, diversity and deep internal transformation that leads to real change. My career path has taken me around the world working with teams and individuals at all levels in organisations facilitating transformational change events and leadership/management development workshops. So, 25 years later, still very much involved in these kinds of programmes I have developed some unusual specialist areas.
I love creating bespoke leadership development workshops that are aligned with leadership capabilities such as resilience, authentic leadership, women in leadership and leading with emotional intelligence. I love exploring behaviour and how to influence performance through learning interventions that really engage from the top down and inspire people to think and behave in a new way. I have a passion for coaching and supporting people to show up and be themselves more fully at work.
I'm told I bring an unusual depth to the work that I do. I've spent 7 years studying and practising psychotherapy which I believe has made me a better facilitator and human being. It has equipped me to deal with some of the more challenging things that one encounters in organisations and with the skills to support others to handle relational wounding, dysfunction and the things many people avoid. I aspire to live my values and embody the things I talk about and it hasn't been easy to get there, so a lot of the work that I do is supporting people to craft their own character, face themselves honestly and work on themselves from the inside out.
I love to balance my time between design and delivery of workshops and regular one-to-one work on-line or face-to-face. Everything I do, I do from the heart, with integrity and I give it my all.
