Who am I?

I am a management consultant for people who want to develop in their current work or who want to do something new. I support people who have a vision of how to make a difference in their organisation or the world, by challenging them, encouraging and helping them turn their vision and beliefs into reality. This is for themselves and for their teams. I work in both the Public and Private sectors. My coaching clients range from Chief Executives to monks, from aspiring leaders in IT who need to have political integrity to those in the NHS who need to take a deep breath and move to another role when theirs have disappeared. My organisational work has been with amongst others Computacentre, Fujitsu and Southwark Council.
With all the changes in the world and organisations making career paths less clear, I have developed Intuitive Career Management. It’s about combining the wisdom we all have inside us with the aspect that achieves and accomplishes to reveal what we want or need to do in this world. Intuitive Career Management is now integrated into my 1 to 1 work and I run workshops on it. People who have attended them include Executives of large organisations, management consultants, publishing editors, local authority career advisors, not for profit managers, bankers, teachers, NHS managers.

My career had a shaky start after a Degree in Geography and Diploma in Personnel Management when I worked in the personnel department in a factory that made oil and air filters for cars. I then joined Marks and Spencer and was with them for 14 years in Stores and Head Office. Some of the initiatives I was part of included:leadership and personal development training, introducing counselling skills into management training, chairing Management interview panels and Selection Centres, creating a new appraisal system for the company, developing a competencies framework, writing and taking one day courses, and creating a learning centre.

I then spent 4 great years at KPMG career coaching people whose jobs had disappeared and helping organisations manage restructures. I trained managers in how to manage big projects and in work counselling skills. I rewrote the Life and Career Planning manual, and developed a course using intuitive techniques to gain insight into a future path. After 2 years as a Director with Management Career Development, I made a life change and set up my own business.
I have been on a variety of personal development quests to make sense of my life and life generally and enjoy integrating the commercial and personal development worlds. I have studied a range of approaches including NLP, Image work, Appreciative Inquiry, Values Assessments, Frameworks Coaching Process, counselling and coaching skills. I have also been a yoga teacher.

I am Welsh, and have lived in London for 26 years. I retreat to Criccieth in North Wales regularly to be nurtured by the mountains, sea, nature, and people.
