My story

My background is working in and directing community interest companies. Faced with leadership challenges I began my learning journey by attending professional and organizational development programs. Learning dynamic governance models, nonviolent communication, and Theory U. I then completed my initial coaching qualification with Relational Dynamics First in 2017. Since then I have been delivering both one-to-one and team coaching. In 2022 I graduated from Oxford Brooks University with an MA in Coaching and Mentoring. I am grateful to be giving something back to the coaching community by actively contributing to the academic and practitioner literature with the research I conducted at Oxford Brooks. 


When I am not coaching, I am always active. As a founding director of the local forest school Kinder Croft CIC I have an interest in education. I believe social and environmental change begins with giving young people the best start in life by creating a supportive natural learning environment. You can count on me to be working on a creative project. For instance, I built the house my partner and I live in and over the past two years, I have been working with members of the local community to establish a community orchard. Outside of these projects, I enjoy growing fruit and vegetables in our garden. I love reading and writing (yes even academic papers) walking in the hills, practicing free-diving, and paddling out into the ocean to surf the Atlantic swell.
