Are you wanting to develop your leadership identity and capacity? Could you be better at harnessing the strengths of those around you? Are you managing complex change?

These are just examples of some of the questions/challenges you may face. I would expect any meaningful discussion of leadership challenges to be complex; and necessarily have some psychological grounding. With nearly a decade of experience as a psychotherapist, and having worked in the financial sector prior to this, I may be well-positioned to help. Please note that I am unlikely to be the right coach for you if you are solely task-focused; rather than wanting/willing to work at the interface of the personal and professional.

I first studied Economics at the University of Warwick in 2004; I completed my second undergraduate degree aged 27, gaining a First in Counselling from the Metanoia Institute. From there I completed a related MSc; and then a Post Graduate Diploma in Supervision. The latter in particular sharpened my ability to facilitate others to meet their potential. From 2014-16 I moved to the Netherlands (not knowing anyone nor speaking the language!); I built a strong private practice working with internationals. During this time I also began teaching and facilitating groups on an to undergraduate counselling degree in London. I returned to the UK full-time, and became the Clinical Lead for an NHS counselling service in North London. Finally, I have been on the editorial board of the World Cultural Psychiatry Research Review (an academic journal) since 2013.

I now work predominantly in private practice; I welcome clients of all backgrounds and in all stages of their lives and careers. The leadership coaching aspect of my practice has developed organically; clients have asked for this way of working.
