Me in eight words:
Authentic | Coach | Empathetic | Ethical | Innovator | Mentor | Passionate | Transparent

I am a passionate advocate for emotional intelligence and the ‘people’ agenda.  I love working with teams and individuals to facilitate creativity, growth, well-being and optimal performance.

My successful 20-year career has been non-traditional and diverse in nature. I have consistently maintained a positive alignment in my work/life balance. I leverage these experiences to creatively develop capability and versatility in others. I have designed and delivered complex programmes and initiatives allowing sustainable business performance and cultural change across both private and public sectors.

I love and live by The Starfish story – if you don’t know it, you can find in via Google.

My Starfish Story
The traits of self-awareness, self-regulation, internal motivation, empathy and social skills are my starfish and by challenging others to throw each one into the ocean of their life, I enable people and organisations to ‘create a ripple and make a difference’. I empathically, ethically and innovatively enable individuals and organisations to open pathways to success through the recognition and adoption of emotional intelligence.

I can help you understand and identify whether emotional intelligence is a rhetoric or reality in your world – through a uniquely designed and bespoke ‘Litmus test’ for organisations, and through coaching and mentoring for individuals. I work with you to reflect on your past, identify your present and define your future for creating positive behavioural change.

If you want to experience a journey on connecting positively with others, nudges in neuroscience and developing yourself, your ‘people’ and your business, please get in touch.

I am a Chartered Member of the CIPD, a BSc (Hons) in Human Resource Management and a PGCE. Currently studying at Kings College London for an MSc in Applied Neuroscience and psychology of Mental Health. As well as these academic qualifications, my life qualifications are I am a wife, a mother (to three spirited and thoughtful boys) a sister and a loyal friend.
