Presence in Action Practitioner & Coach

About me

Do you believe you are ‘stuck’, feel anxious, have lost confidence, or believe your self esteem is low? Have you lost motivation in your personal life or career? Presence in Action will offer you an opportunity to notice more, to see differently. Through illuminating your patterns and what holds them in place, transformative shifts can occur. This is an opportunity for you to focus on your personal development. 

Using the P6 Constellation framework, I will support you to examine self limiting assumptions, be more fully aware of yourself and your impact on others. Engaging in Presence in Action will impact your work and relationships as you begin to notice the impact your speech and behaviour has on yourself and those you interact with. 

Am I ready?
You are ready to begin the process if you are frustrated in one or more areas of your life or do not have the work life balance you would like. You are ready when you want something different in your career, business or personal life

What will Presence in Action will do for you? 
Presence in Action will change you! The process increases your awareness of yourself, enables you to develp emotional fluency and equips you to relate to yourself and others more conciously.

By attending to yourself you will reduce your stress, find your motivation and enhance your personal development. This process facilitates clarity of thought which increases your career, business and personal effectiveness.

Why am I a Presence in Action Practitioner?

What inspires me about Presence in Action is what I have discovered about myself through working with myself! I have then been able to work with others with increased clarity, focus and creativity. These relationships are a journey of discovery, which enables people to make new and different life and career choices. I find the liberation people experience to take control of and redesign their lives very exciting.

Being able to work with individuals of varying ages, diverse cultural, professional backgrounds, at all levels of organisations, means that the work is both interesting and rewarding for me. I also work intentionally using Creativity and Nature by agreement with clients with whom these approaches resonate! 

A little about me!
I am a keen explorer and adventurer and am grateful to own a Campervan! I love to challenge myself to live and work differently. I often combine my passions for nature, the outdoors, abstract sculpture and travel. I am currently exploring land, as opposed to air, travel due to the climate emergency. Other pleasures include hiking, dancing and gardening. Did I mention I love a good book? Currently absorbed in the Sand Talk by Tyson Yunkaporta!!! I often dip into Glennie Kindred's writings too! 


Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience working with individuals at all organisational levels in Private, Public and Charity sectors and those who are self employed

Whilst my original training included Person Centred and Solution Focused models, the approach  I have used since 2013, is Presence in Action which draws on complexity theory and Natural Inclusion. Through paying attention to what is present you will discover more information to both make meaning of your situation and see the transformation of unhelpful patterns in your life. You will be able to work with yourself both in and out of the sessions.

I am one of three Pioneering Presence in Action practioners who has worked with the Founder Louie Gardiner for over 10 years This P6 Constellation framework supports me personally and my practice, enabling me to illuminate patterns simply. 

As a member of the Presence in Action Collective Community I have access to peer support, group training and personal development. I work with other experienced practitioners in in Learning Ecosystems which develops my practice. I also engage in regular supervision 1 to 1 and group Supervision. 

I have over 20 years of NHS experience leading & managing change and experience working with and coaching individuals at all levels of the organisation. My healthcare background has also given me a broad set people and business skills which has provided an excellent foundation for my personal & business coaching practice.

In addition to the Public sector I have experience Coaching & Mentoring at CEO/Director level in the Charity & Small Business sectors , developing leadership and a robust business approach that delivers profit/surplus.

I currently work with those experiencing Anti Social Behaviour, supporting them during evidence gathering and while legal procedures are followed.

Testimonials
Ro provides me with a space to actually stop and connect with myself, to notice how I am feeling in the moment and be ok with that. Ro has been instrumental in supporting me to become more present and aware and understanding the elements which can influence this.  I certainly see things differently than I did and which has been really helpful.  Couldn't recommend Ro highly enough. 

Helen Baker Head of Operational Delivery January 2022

It has been wonderful to connect with Ro this past year. Engaging with the Presence in Action through the P6 Framework and Ro’s facilitation has helped me to engage with and process what is going on inside of me in the present moment. It has highlighted how much I have allowed my feelings to dominate my thinking and behavioural patterns (towards myself and others). It has given me greater clarity and fresh perspectives which has brought hope, movement and change. Thank you Ro for your kindness, insight and encouragement.
 
Naomi - Charity Manager Jan 2022

 I was extremely sceptical about doing any sort of Coaching as I didn’t have much stock in it, and I didn’t believe it could help me. I was proven wrong! Ro helped me focus on the facts instead of completely focusing on what else could happen  or what has happened. Ro also helped me to deal with anxiety attacks, with techniques to help me deal with them should I experience it.Talking to Ro has been nothing short of life saving! She’s helped me in more ways than she realises and I will forever be grateful for the understanding, kind and comforting manner in which she spoke and helped me deal with my current and past experiences. I highly recommend Ro’s services. 

M.O Jan 2022

Ro helped me break down some fictions I had about myself into clear manageable facts, which enabled me to get to the core of what was stopping me from moving forward.

Laura Martin Restaurant Manager January 2020

Having coaching with Ro has been extremely helpful for me to deal with complex feelings and emotions that were making me feel stuck within my career and personal life. I have been able to move forward with this effectively. I would highly recommend her.

Debbie Howard, Film & TV Director  October 2019

I can’t recommend Ro enough! My husband suggested I phone her, when I was feeling completely overwhelmed with work. After a very honest and tearful conversation I started working with her, and haven’t looked back since. I now know how to accept my feelings, and I understand the repeated patterns that can hold me back. I’ve learnt to slow down and look at things in a different way, and it’s definitely helped me be a better version of me. Ro provides the headspace and prompts to enable me to sort things out - sometimes I come up with solutions and sometimes I just see things differently. It helps me press the reset button on my brain, and I leave energised again.

Jo, Head Teacher September 2019

When I first saw Ro I was overwhelmed by feelings and generally feeling 'stuck'. Coaching helped me to 'move on', make appropriate changes and generally start living in the moment again.

LM Personal Assistant August 2019

Ro is an incredibly insightful and clear thinking coach who has mastered the P6Constellation framework. It is so effective in getting underneath the hidden thoughts and feelings which unconsciously drive habits.

Tony Vino Comedian, Show Booker & Corporate Entertainer 2017

The main thing for me was that working with Ro and the P6Constellation it enabled me to see that I wasn't looking at what I wanted to get out of retirement. I was blocking out what I wanted and was was focusing on making sure I didn't upset anyone else in the negotiations. It gave me a sense of freedom to think clearly and not pursue the previous muddled mixed up thoughts I had been placing too much emphasis on. It certainly felt awkward possibly even bizarre at first but I soon realised its effectiveness

A.J Finance Executive 2017

"Ro was able to hold a space for me to explore deep rooted feelings which I was too afraid to face on my own. She enabled me to work through the P6Constellation in my own time, gently probing and reflecting back to me where I was. This enable me to make friends with my feelings, understand their origin and resource myself.”

Transition Coach 2017

Working with you was great and I felt very focused after our meetings. You showed compassion and created a warm comfortable space. I wouldn't hesitate recommending you.

M. K Supply Chain Manager 2017

" I experienced a new capacity to recognise and accept my emotions rather than reject them and I reconnected with my purpose."

C.T Reflexologist 2017

Ro has been an excellent coach for me. With her pertinent questions she quickly helped me to come to the essence of what I was trying to express. She helped me recognise with exercises and visualisations the beliefs I held on to about myself. Once this had become clear to me, change started to happen quickly. I am now in a much lighter and more positive place than I was a few months ago, and I trust that things can only get better from here. Thank you Ro.
