We are dreamers about a different and better, happier, healthier world.
Dreamers who believe we can get on and create good things now - for ourselves, others and our communities.
We are 'do-ers' that want to collaborate to make things happen, not sit in endlessly long workshops, sessions or meetings working out how to get there.
And we want to help others make things happen too.
We are curious explorers who traverse multiple domains. Asking questions, translating systems, challenging norms and deepening understanding.Forever learning.
I've always been driven by purpose and a commitment to help build a better world. I trained as a solicitor, seeing the law as a vehicle for social change and justice. After a spell of criminal and asylum work, I immersed myself in public law - in particular education, health, mental health and social care. Read more
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;
facilitate better conversations, connection and collaboration - as a key to improving wellbeing, preventing crisis and resolving conflict
actively seek out, test and develop new ways of living, working, leading, collaborating and governing - to help good things happen and bring about social change.
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.
