I left my legal career behind out of a desire to:
work with people - to help them identify what really matters to them and find more sustainable and person-centred solutions to the problems they face;

I am currently working towards Level 5 qualification in Clean coaching and mentoring with the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and ORSC certificated in the Fundamentals of Organisational Relationship Systems Coaching. I am Working Out Loud and part of the first, international WOL Certification Programme.

My career has been about creating change - within policy, strategy, service commissioning, organisational change and in coaching with individuals. I have managed large-scale organisational transformation programmes and created small, specialist teams and projects within the public, private and voluntary sectors.
Working with individuals I am particularly focused on supporting people to realise meaningful work, good people leadership and achieve health and well-being. Most recently I have been coaching a range of social entrepreneurs and innovators within and outside of organisations that want to collaborate differently to achieve their goals.
I enjoy helping teams to thrive and believe passionately that it is people and their relationships that make change happen. I work with clients to design change projects that do this.
I am an Associate Member of the Association of Coaching, NLP Practitioner and ORSC certificated in the Fundamentals of Organisational Relationship Systems Coaching.
