Team Development and Facilitation

My work in serving my clients is always significant and impactful.

I serve my clients powerfully by helping them to engage with their own courage and insight to see their world and opportunities from a new and more expansive perspective.

With this perspective you get to reflect on yourself in ways that empower you to be and do more.

Perspective can help you disentangle and bring sense-making to chaotic thinking that might be holding you back.

A more masterful perspective helps you see ways to better manage internal politics and relationships at work and the associated stress that sometimes goes along with that.

Getting perspective helps you to be more focused and intentional in working on what’s important and creating more of the life you want.

Leadership Coaching

Coaching is about helping you to see new and smart ways to use your strengths, attention and energy so that you can create more of the life you want. I am skilled in encouraging you to explore ways in which you can be more intentional in developing your leadership approach so you lead with greater presence and impact. I will help you to connect with your ability to build greater levels of self-awareness so you are more conscious of how your communications and interactions influence others around you. We work together to bring to light your aspirations and intentions and design actions and enduring changes to honour these.


Mindful Meditation Training

The quality of your attention and self-awareness directly affects the quality of your performance and relationships at work. Training in Mindful Meditation equips you with the tools you need to notice when you’re on ‘autopilot’ and will help increase your level of focus and attention. Learning these practices will help you be more effective in managing negative thought and behaviour patterns, and develop more helpful responses to stress and feelings of anxiety.  This training has been developed specifically for the workplace and will improve your decision-making, emotional intelligence and inter-personal skills.  

Team Development and Facilitation

Being a strong facilitator is both a skill and an art. In many group situations, and particularly in complex discussions or where people have different views or interests, effective facilitation can make a real difference in successfully achieving your goals. The skills I bring means that everyone in the group will feel empowered about their own ideas and participation, and stay invested in the discussion. My art is in creating the critical elements of trust and connection from which an ingenuity of thought and inspiration emerges -these are essential  catalysts for innovation and change.



I regularly bring these areas of expertise together and share my knowledge and insights as a university lecturer and public speaker. I have lectured MPA students and leadership teams on “Leading Mindfully” and delivered Mindful Meditation taster sessions at Well-Being conferences and events. I speak with passion and authority drawing on academic theories of leadership, as well as neuroscience and coaching disciplines to engage the audience in new ways to perceive their thought processes and how they can use this insight to better manage themselves. 

We cannot manage others until such time as we learn to manage ourselves.
