About me

I support people who feel stuck or lost to find their way to fulfilment...

I work with people from all backgrounds who want to make the most out of what life and work has to offer but feel they can't quite get past blockages and obstacles holding them back from achieving their potential.

With over 10 years coaching experience allied with significant contemplative and senior organisational leadership practice I offer an attuned, reflective and transformative space to take your life forward to more meaningful and purposeful levels.

I can support you through periods of transition, development, change and renewal to make the most of the opportunity these challenges are presenting.

Typically people come to me to help work through:

  • A crisis or shock
  • A promotion or new project/assignment
  • Developing leadership skills
  • A career change
  • The need for new capacities for living well
  • Setting up a new business or growing an existing business
  • Transitions around loss, relationships and re-location

As a coach I am a candid, skillful and objective partner focused on you and your development. Through the coaching relationship you are invited into deep reflection supporting shifts in perspective and new possibilities. In addition, you’ll get:

  • Honest, clear and objective feedback
  • Knowledge and practice guidance
  • Structure for accountability
  • Learning strategies and practices for developing new competencies

Do get in touch if you would like to explore working with me. I usually set-up a short Zoom to get to know one another and to see if we would be a good fit.
