I combine the business and leadership experience of a Global HR Director with the psychological knowhow of an executive Coach and Therapist.

I have led change in more than 20 countries across four continents. I have steered international mergers; rolled out behaviour and culture change programmes; redesigned roles, teams and whole organisations and launched new products and services. I’ve increased performance and capability in multiple organisations. I’ve developed Leaders and their teams to increase their effectiveness and improve bottom-line metrics in their organisations.

Over this time, I have witnessed the damage that can be caused by aggressive approaches to change, and have concluded that there is a better way. The start is compassion. Compassion for ourselves, for others, for the organisations we’re part of. And this can be done without sacrificing the pace or agility needed to navigate in todays working world.

I’m fascinated by people and the systems we create. How we get stuck and what holds us in place. How we move past that and become adaptable again. Change, culture, motivation, belonging are all focus areas that I have worked with. Leadership and the development of people and teams is also a significant drive.

Experienced 1-2-1 and Team Coach

Qualified Therapist

With more than two decades of experience supporting individuals, teams and whole organisations through change. They are also in my approach, which is heavily grounded in Gestalt psychology and is curious, compassionate and challenging all at the same time.

Calm, professional and competent on the surface. Playful, adaptable and with a tendency to run towards fires rather than away from them underneath. I’m tougher than I look, tenacious and well able to support those I work with through difficult transitions and changes, no matter their scale or complexity.
