The first decade of my career was spent as a professional actor after graduating from LAMDA School of Speech and Drama and The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts where I specialized in TV and Radio.
I began working with people in the corporate
world in 2005 bringing with me all the experience of my previous profession to help people communicate with confidence and authenticity. I’m happy working in small groups or speaking at a conference, with people at the start or at the top of their careers. Over the last ten years I have trained hundreds of executives in communication, Influencing & impact.
A leader in my own right, I created and facilitate a thriving and diverse women’s group, lecturing and inspiring entrepreneurial women in their creativity, health and businesses.
I have also been teaching yoga and meditation for the over 10 years.
What I do now
Keen insight, intuition and kindness are at the heart of my coaching style. I have a deep understanding of the anatomy of the body and a passion to explore the human spirit that gives depth and perspective to our programmes, and a unique offering to our clients. I’ve got a broad toolkit of disciplines as varied as performance, psychology, philosophy, and resilience/stress management that I apply to design a practical path of development for my clients, I use a holistic approach to achieve strategic results. My joy is to empower people to go beyond their limitations and thrive.
At the foundation of all my work is mindfulness; this is something I have been exploring for 20 years, first as a performer, now as a coach.
Who I work with
I’ve worked with a broad range of corporate, not-for-profit and individuals over the course of my career. Most recently with the likes of Apple, British Gas, The Barbican, EE and Meryl Lynch. What I love is helping people fulfill their dreams, wherever they are.
Since I was a wee dot my family encouraged me to perform, as a dancer and actor, you’d never know it now but I was quiet and shy, even in later life I struggled with performance anxiety when preparing for a role, and this led me to delve deep into enquiry around what makes us live small or great. I developed my “fierceness” overcoming many limits and this is what makes me such an amazing coach.
