I am a systemic team coach and group facilitator with over 20 years experience.
I bring many methodologies and types of interventions to support individual, group and team development. This includes the facilitation of multi-disciplinary groups and organisational development initiatives.
A predominant part of the work I do is systemic team coaching. This is a process where, as part of a coaching team, I work with the whole team to develop their collective performance and develop their joint leadership by engaging with their key stakeholder groups to transform their results and the wider organisation.
I am interested in the synergy of teams and how they perform to be more than the sum of their parts. I am currently working to become accredited with the Resilience Engine, a model for personal resilience and am participating in the on-going research in to team resilience.
I worked in Learning and Development for many years for Waitrose focusing particularly on Branch Manager Development and the on-boarding of managers joining as a result of acquisition. In the last 6 years I have worked with organisations as diverse as the oil industry, local authorities, health service and housing associations.

Who are my clients? Passionate, creative people with energy and drive. They come because they are stuck, or they can see what they want but don’t know how to get it.
My corporate & management experience, combined with my intuition about people means I really understand what my clients are going through and can get them to where they want to be.
