I am an experienced business leader, psychologist, executive and leadership coach. I am passionate about helping individuals, teams and organisations to thrive, by using the power of evidence-based psychology and coaching to do so.
I have held several senior leadership roles within FMCG for almost 20 years, leading cross-functional teams of 150+ as both Commercial Director and General Manager, so I have a great understanding of the challenges that people, and organisations face and what they need to feel engaged and energised.
With an ability to cultivate empathy, resilience and new thinking, I am driven by a passion to empower others to solve their most gnarly problems and become better learners. I will both challenge and support leaders, teams and organisations to achieve their goals, creating a safe space in which to explore limiting assumptions and harness strengths. I will use various coaching methodologies, techniques and frameworks and adapt to my clients’ learning styles. These include Solutions focused, Neuroscience, Positive psychology, Gestalt, Cognitive behavioural and Somatic coaching.
I love working with individuals and teams at all levels of organisations across a range of areas, including building effective stakeholder relationships; developing leadership and influence style; increasing confidence; creating impact and presence; embracing personal and professional change.
Currently undertaking a PhD in how to create thriving hybrid teams means that I will also use the very latest thinking in psychology to inspire positive change.
I have worked with an array of clients across several industries and countries, most recently in India, where I worked for 5 years. Clients include Boston Consulting, L’Oréal, Matrix, Fuller’s, Ikea, Deloitte, DST, SS&C technologies, Louella Belle and the Blo Bar group.
I am also a guest lecturer with King’s College, London, running lectures for final year BSc students on leadership and coaching and learning & development.
My biggest passion is my 3 boys, Jasper, Rufus and Zander and helping them grow into young men of great character. I love to travel, explore new cultures and wildlife, with a huge love of tigers and gorillas! Travelling to Antarctica on a research ship has been my most profound travelling experience so far. I am also an avid runner of half…not yet full… marathons.
