I’m a qualified executive coach, drawing on a range of classical coaching models and approaches including Dialogic, Transpersonal and Gestalt, applying deep empathic listening to help you move forward, meet your own goals and get the most out of life. I’ve extensive training and influence from many years of working with Eastern and Western disciplines, basic counselling, mediation and Mindfulness meditation, Professional Dialogue facilitation and specialist coaching and mentoring.

I have a wide field of experience including being a parent, devising and managing private education programmes with home-schooled children and refugees, writing, storytelling and arts workshops, extensive overland travel including in the Middle East. In 2014 I was professionally informed I meet the criteria for Asperger’s. I teach Mindfulness Meditation and as an artist, musician and yoga and chi-gong practitioner, I bring a lively and creative holistic style to coaching.

I welcome you to my zone and invite you to go deeper in exploring yourself through a variety of approaches. My work in supporting others find deeper meaning to life is focussed on trust, compassion and sense-making using mentoring, guided meditation and subtle dialogic enquiry to gradually remove blocks and re-open deep inner space.
