MCC, ACTC: Founder & CEO, Team Coaching Supervisor
The first 10 years of my career were entrepreneurial, starting, leading and growing diverse businesses. A tech consultancy firm I was building led me to undertake a Masters in Change Management, which is where I first heard about coaching.
Discovering coaching in the early 1990s changed my life. It dawned on me that learning and growth are the key to success in life and work I was inspired by the idea of coaching as a way of bringing together business, purpose and personal growth and development, and decided it was the ideal path for me. Since then, I have studied with many of the best coach training organisations and underpinned my coaching skills with Transactional Analysis, Systems and Gestalt.
I specialise in coaching CEOs and senior leadership teams, but team coaching is obviously a huge passion of mine. I believe that teams need to work together brilliantly for their organisations to thrive, today and in the future. As such, I am a global advocate, leader and shaper in the coaching profession in the field of team coaching and have recently published my book, Mastering the Art of Team Coaching: A comprehensive guide to unleashing the power, purpose and potential in any team (Team Coaching Studios Press).
My first graduate education was in fashion design. While working in the fashion industry turned out not to be my calling, I learned that I have a gift for foreseeing trends and societal patterns – a strength that still drives me today. I also trained as an accountant. These may seem like paradoxical interests, but my passion for business drove me to want to understand organisational economics. I live in Winchester with my husband, and have a daughter, two stepsons and a cocker spaniel. I love culture, travel, the arts, music, film, theatre, food, yoga and generally living well.
