I’ve spent my career trying to help others and improve the work of those who do this for a living.

I’m passionate about coaching and am often blown away by the impact this can have. Researching and achieving a PhD in coaching has made me a better coach and inspired me to make coaching available to anyone and everyone. Everyone means parents, young people, teenagers as well as those in leadership or corporate roles – anyone who would like help to make changes in their life and work.

I’ve been a registered social worker for 25 years. Since 2006 I’ve been facilitating the practice and continuing professional development of social workers and students by delivering training, workshops and lectures.

The training I deliver now is based on my original doctoral research into the benefits of using coaching within social work, combined with foundation coaching principles and mindfulness-based coaching approaches. If you’re interested in my research and how I think coaching can change lives you can access my latest published journal article here: https://radar.brookes.ac.uk/radar/items/7e945a10-f0f5-4c99-9e09-d80f6eb8c986/1/
