I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC), completing over 200 hours of training with the Coaches Training Institute, one of the largest and most respected coaching organisations in the world. In addition, I am certified in the neuroscience and ‘brain based’ behaviours of leadership coaching with the Neuroleadership Institute (NLI) in New York.
I am a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF) and abide fully by its practices and code of conduct. I am an accredited Strengths Profile practitioner and coach on the Landit platform. In addition I am a certified in Positive Psychology Vision Day Methodology and trained in the team and relationship tools of Organisation and Relationship Systems Coaching.
After 5 years in the United States, I am now based back in the UK, coaching people from a wide variety of backgrounds from around the world. Outside of coaching I love playing jazz piano, indie guitar, running up hills and embarrassing my children.
Prior to coaching I spent over 20 years working in communications and in politics. In my previous career I was a Partner at The Pramana Collective, Vice President, Global Communications at Jawbone, a leading technology company, and Vice President, Public Affairs, for Starbucks in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
