I am a unique individual, just as you are. Here is a bit about me ..
I am a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation. I have worked with hundreds of individuals, and spent countless hours coaching, mentoring coaches and facilitating coaching skills and personal development workshops over the past 10 years.
I work with private individuals and organizations both nationally and internationally. Prior to coaching I had a successful career in technical management, with 14 years experience with leading companies in New Zealand and UK in new product development, project management and innovation, along with 2 years in Executive and Specialist recruitment.
In 2002, I followed my passion and made the decision to train as a coach and start my own business. It was one of the best decisions of my life. I can honestly say that do what I love and I love what I do. I feel very blessed to work with wonderful people who want to make a positive difference in their own lives and those around them.
I support my clients to re-connecting to their core values and to create a powerful and compelling vision for their own personal leadership. My approach is solutions focused and outcome orientated, with a focus on personal transformation - coaching from the inside out so to speak.
I am committed to my own professional development. In 2012 I completed a Certificate in Neuroleadership from the Neuroleadership Institute (NLI), and continue to learn in the areas of neuroscience, mindfulness and creative thinking.
When I am not working with clients or on my business I also love to design and create beautiful things for myself and friends. I design and make bespoke intuitive jewellery using semi precious stones, upcycle furniture, love to cook from scratch and grow my own herbs, fruits and vegetables. I also love to travel, meet new people, experience new things and have adventures.
I have worked with a wide variety of personal coaching clients in workshops and one on one, focused on creating happier, more successful and more fulfilling lives.
With my corporate clients and collaborations I have coached and facilitated workshops with leaders, senior managers and team leaders to improve leadership capability, coaching skills for managers and to enhance individual and team performance and engagement.
