Personal development coaching for leadership and change

I have been working in the field of personal development for nearly 25 years: from playleader for the Inner London Education Authority, teaching English as a foreign language, through management and Human Resources to personal development coaching as a specialism.

I have worked primarily in IT project management and Human Resources, supporting Engineering compliance and supply chain functions, as well as corporate IT and Finance. At the strategic planning level within the Human Resources field, I specialised in resourcing, career development, organisational development and change management. I have a great deal of direct, hands-on experience of implementing change in organisations, and of helping people to manage their own part in that change.

I've also worked as a doughnut seller on a French beach, motorcycle courier, and once had a credit as assistant producer on a Japanese heavy metal video. All of those were a long time ago.

Education. After a first degree in modern languages from the University of Manchester, I completed my MSc in Organisational Behaviour at Birkbeck College, London in 1996 while working full-time.

In 2004 I was awarded an MA (with distinction) in Coaching & Mentoring Practice at Oxford Brookes University, the very first dedicated masters-level course in the UK. I now also teach on the post-graduate coaching and mentoring programmes at Oxford Brookes.

I practice in London and Gloucestershire where I live with my partner and two small, energetic children who offer me endless insight into the way we learn.
