About

 

I’m passionate about improving the quality of our work experience and humanising our people connections, because I’ve spent too much time witnessing great people endure unhappiness, stress and unrealised potential at work.

I have successfully coached CEs and other leaders to fully engage their potential through being more intentional in developing their leadership approach so that they lead with greater presence and impact.

I have coached individuals and teams to meet high performance demands in changing and complex work environments, or as they need support in resolving conflict or managing stress and tension at work.

My coaching expertise is drawn from a range of perspectives including leadership theory, psychology, neuroscience and coaching approaches, underpinned by formal qualifications in business (MPA) and Leadership Coaching (ILM and CMI).

I am grateful for my personal meditation practice that has benefited me for over 30 years.  I believe that the quality of our attention and self-awareness directly affects the quality of our performance and relationships at work, and that the tools and practices learned through Mindful Meditation have a profound positive impact to significantly enhance our wellbeing and work experience.

I am delighted to have formally trained in Workplace MT – the six-week training programme designed specifically to fit in with busy work schedules created by Prof. Mark Williams and colleagues from the Oxford University Mindfulness Centre.

Before, and alongside my coaching and training career, I have worked as a credible and successful leader across a range of organisational environments from business management roles in the music industry, account management at Yahoo and other Media Technology businesses, to working as a Strategic Advisor to three CEs in central government and leading complex organisational change programmes and projects in the science, innovation and charity sectors.

I look forward to hearing from you.
