Who am I?

I'm an executive coach and NLP Practitioner with over 12 years' experience in the public and not-for-profit sectors, with a focus on higher education.

How can I help?

I support leaders to explore challenging topics, consider different perspectives and change non-productive patterns of thinking, so they can take control of their careers and future.

Can you relate to these feelings?
