Following a psychology degree, I gained over 20 years of experience working with women facing inequalities such as substance misuse, homelessness, violence and exploitation.
I’ve worked across the NHS, civil service, local government and criminal justice settings. Specialising in turning around performance, training and workshop facilitation and project/event management. In addition, I have written two in-depth pieces of research, one about the challenges facing women selling sex for drugs on the streets of South London to inform London borough of Lambeth how best to support the women and one for London borough of Lewisham about their crack cocaine market. I also trained and worked as a rape and sexual abuse counsellor.
In 2016 I trained as a coach within my organisation in the Civil Service where I still offer coaching to a range of senior professionals. I love coaching because it bolsters my core belief that people can do anything they want to. Even better, it gives me the chance to aid them with practical action planning and witness their happiness as they bring about the change they desired.
In 2018 I achieved the Institute of Leadership & Management ILM level 5 Certificate in Coaching qualification.
As a coach I am warm and empathetic yet challenging. I am responsive and can quickly drill down to the specific issues you are bringing. I could tell you more about my style of coaching, but this probably comes better from those I’ve coached so please have a look at my Testimonials page.
In my spare time, I love walking in nature in the Royal Parks of Richmond or National Trust gardens. I relax by pottering around my garden with my boyfriend and/or cats. My alternative career would have been a Stylist or Interior designer as I love curating looks with bold colours and prints (see wallpaper in photo above!).
