About me

Are you a senior leader looking to source external support? Maybe you are entering a time of transition? A complex time of challenge or change? Or moving towards a new understanding of contribution and legacy?

Are you looking for a coach who also has a solid psychological understanding…someone who can help you with your emotional world whilst also keeping focus on the present and the future? Someone with courage to stand alongside you, test, provoke, play, as you hold the complexity of leadership in this current world?

Could you benefit from a space outside your organisation in which to voice thoughts in a confidential and secure environment? A place to think through situations and issues away from the pressures within the company or household.

If this is you… please contact me for a conversation.

I’m a trusted confidante, experienced in the corporate business environment. I have been working alongside C-suite executives for the last ten years in mining, financial services, process engineering, healthcare, telecommunications, human security and a range of other settings. Outside the corporate sector I have supported senior leaders in academia, public sector, large charities and not-for-profit/social businesses.

The coaching journey

At this level this is not a journey of goals and linear pathways. It is a complex exploration - diving deep, stretching wide, and noticing what is revealed.

Very often unexpected surprises lay in wait - not always pleasant, however almost certainly part of the territory to be explored.

The essence of coaching is to notice, know and understand more about yourself.

This often leads back to existential questions that may become the pivotal point of our enquiry...

Who am I?

Who do I need to be? How do I respond to, and navigate, change? How you I support myself in the creation of the present and future?

How do I hold steady?

Every coaching journey is personal and unique.
