Specialty & Expertise

Helping clients to think through their personal and professional strategies, their reason for being, and work out what needs to change and how. Helping organizations to work out how to change for the better in the same way.

Personal Background

I started out as a traveller and learner of languages, beginning in Egypt with the Arabic language, then moving to Indonesia where I taught English, then moved into the world of education and learning. I spent two years in Fiji and one in Australia, then Indonesia exerted a gravitational pull on me again and now I am here for good.

Based in Bali now, looking out on the rice fields but available online!

Coaching style

Partnering clients to by listening, questioning, exploring and helping you to come to terms with your reality so you can see where you can go from here.

Personal philosophy

We should all be able to find our reason for being: what we love, what we do well, what the world needs, and what we can be paid for. Everything we have done so far has a meaning and is important in making us who we are.
