I’ve lived across 7 countries, starting out as a physicist with research at the ESRF particle accelerator, then studying Education and teaching for a few years, finally training as a coach.
Since then, as an Executive Coach and Leadership Trainer I have worked alongside leaders in multinational organisations, government, NGOs, and startups spanning Series A to D. A few examples include: Bloom&Wild, Google, MyTutor, Emerge Education, Revolut, Open Society Foundation, London Institute of Banking and Finance, Paddle, Azimo, the Civil Service, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Hanson Wade.
As Head of Coaching for EqualPlus I created programmes for, and led, an international team of coaches to support leaders to become role models for inclusivity. As trainer for Animas Centre for Coaching, I have trained 1300+ adults to become integrative coaches and start their own businesses.
In 2019, 2 brushes with death and 8 months of tough but lifesaving treatment further demonstrated to me, on a personal level, the power of a coaching mindset to transform a difficult situation into growth and gratitude.
My approach is holistic
Every leader is on a unique path, you deserve coaching that can adapt accordingly
A creative approach that brings awareness to the stories we use to make sense of the world, and then helps us take ownership by stepping into being their author.
🌱 Developmental Psychology
Looks at the evolution of our meaning-making, how many perspectives we can inhabit, and therefore how much complexity we are able to thrive in.
🤲 Humanistic (person centred)
This underlies all my coaching. The belief you are creative, whole, and resourceful, and therefore my role is to facilitate your natural tendency to "self-actualisation", a fundamental drive toward growth and self-fulfilment.
Explores your beliefs, values, a filters that shape your reality.
🧘♂️ Breathwork & Meditation
Methods for mastering your mind and your emotions.
🌊 Clean Language
Enables the exploration of metaphors to access new perspectives and creative solutions.
👨👨👧👦 Internal Family Systems
We all have different parts of ourselves, and this is a method to work with those parts directly to create internal harmony and integration.
🔗 Transactional Analysis
Provides frameworks for understanding relationships, interactions, and deeper drivers of our behaviour.
"The whole is more than the sum of its parts". What's most important is exactly what is happening in the present moment, we can only fully understand ourselves when placed in the context of the web of relationships.
💬 Communication tools
On pitching, feedback, assertiveness, influencing, people management, conflict resolution.
