I’m a west-coast Canadian living in London, married to a kiwi and raising two beautiful little boys. I coach because I love it and feel that it’s my way of living my gift. In my ‘spare’ time I facilitate leadership development and culture transformation in companies. I love to travel, experiment in the kitchen, and try to exercise (jogging and swimming mostly) and meditate regularly too.
I trained as an ontological coach with Newfield in 2011 after taking a time out to have a family. Before coaching I worked in the transport sector in behavioural change and stakeholder engagement. While I really enjoyed my earlier career, when I found coaching I felt the click. Everything shifted and I thought this is it – this is my thing.
My coaching style is caring, open-minded, insightful and pragmatic. I help develop awareness of physical presence, energy, and spirituality alongside intellect, language moods and emotions.
I believe trust and openness are essential factors to a successful coaching relationship. I ask prospective clients to give me a call before we start to understand their personal situation and give them a chance to see whether there is a good fit with us. As a result, I have had clients with a range of ages, genders, sexual orientations, nationalities, backgrounds, and professional sectors.
Alongside private coaching, I work in organisations, helping improve performance and well-being as a Partner at Facilitation Zone.
I grew up beach-combing on the west coast of Canada where I developed a love of nature and the outdoors. I also developed a keen and lasting social conscience and concern for the environment. Before moving to the UK I lived, worked and studied in New Zealand. I now live in leafy West Hampstead with my ‘kiwi’ husband and two young boys.
