I am a coaching psychologist who started coaching formally in 2011 with a coaching qualification in Positive Psychology. I continued to develop my coaching psychology skills with a post-graduate diploma in Psychology from the Open University, a post graduate certificate in Coaching Psychology (Birkbeck University), a MSc in Coaching Psychology (Birkbeck University) and a Career Transition coaching qualification from Fireworks.
I help people to better understand themselves and how this impacts their role, team, organisation, family, and wider society.
I’ve had a varied and interesting career, including within a successful Telecoms start-up, launching a social enterprise in the Middle East and I have worked for different multinationals and corporate organisations. I have experience in industries including Financial Services, Corporate Training, International Development and Telecoms. I worked for eight years in the Middle East, which included launching and managing a youth development programme at country level in the UAE, and my last corporate role was Head of Learning, Development and Talent for Zurich Insurance (Middle East).
I am married with two young children and had my own career break for four years after relocating back to the UK. I totally understand the challenges of managing both your career and parenting ambitions and I have helped many people to navigate this and thrive.
