I am a leadership and career coach facilitator with 20 years’ experience. I have worked in leadership positions in large complex organisations, including Clinical Commissioning Groups, Health Care Trusts and in Local Authorities. I facilitate teams, supervise and coach people in the public, private and third sectors.
I will work alongside you and establish the ingredients of who you are and where you are in your journey. I follow this by accompanying you and co-creating the roadmap to your destination, enabling you to arrive there. The focus might be about work and home or about big ideas and creativity. Central to it, is developing in you a high level of self-awareness to augment your emotional and social astuteness and your leadership abilities; these increase your communication skills and flexibility particularly at times of transition and change.
My work is influenced by Gestalt, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), somatic coaching and mindfulness; an added asset is being a Myers Briggs practitioner. I work by creating a trusting environment to allow greater self-understanding and choice making about new directions in work and life.
My knowledge base has been informed by an MSc in Public Services Management and more recently an MSc in Coaching and Behavioural Change giving me a strong theoretical basis for my team, individual coaching and supervision which is where my passion lies.
I currently work on career choices and leadership with clinicians, executives, care staff and managers at all levels in organisations. I am well practiced in areas such as board alignment, strategy development and performance improvement, all underpinned by my extensive knowledge and experience of organisations in the care and other sectors. I am Chair of Cruse Bereavement Care, Oxfordshire.
