I bring over 15 years of experience of coaching and mentoring. I am trained to deliver high level wellness support to professionals, senior executives and business owners’ managers; enabling them to be their best, at home and work.
Qualified with the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) level 7, post-graduate certificate, to coach and mentor professionals and senior managers. I am a member of European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and the Mindfulness Association (MA).
You can trust I abide by the guidance of the EMCC Code of Ethics and the Mindfulness Association. And have regular coaching supervision as part of my professional practise and take part in continuous professional development to retain professional status.
I am currently researching the benefits of mindfulness and heart-centred emotional intelligence can bring to our daily lives with a part-time MSc Studies Mindfulness at Aberdeen University. I draw upon up-to-date research and thinking from psychology, neuroscience and Buddhism to offer my clients unique understanding and insights. I am able to support individuals to keep well and build resilient. I experience they are able to better cope with stress, become more aware and with support they change their unhelpful behaviours, to transform and flourish in today’s uncertain world.
Alongside being a mindfulness practitioner I am a HeartMath certified coach and help clients to improve their relationships at home and at work; reducing work-related stress, building creativity and performance, helping them find more meaning and happiness.
For more than a decade, I have integrated my values into my daily life and life choices; to enjoy art and design, travel and culture, people and the great outdoors. I’ve trained on European wellness projects, learnt from teachers throughout the world, and taken volunteering holidays across the world from Bolivia to Mongolia to work with children. In 2018 I reached the top of the world; the mysterious Tibet and Everest Base Camp, travelling and learning with Tibetan guides. I have spent my holidays traveling and volunteering to give back and to learn about different ways to life; recently in Bolivia with underprivileged children in cancer care. Together with friends and clients we raised thousands of pounds to make a difference with educational and play materials for the hospital and outreach projects.
