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 are interested in my research and how coaching can be used to change lives you can read my PhD here:

In October 2021 I was honoured to recieve Harvard’s Institute of Coaching’s first-ever award for ‘Coaching for the Social Good’ in the name of social activist Ellen Shub. I hope to use it to bring benifits of coaching to those experiencing a lack of social power and to amplify the social impact of coaching.
