Find out what's critical for you?
My journey has been amazing and full of moments that have changed my life and those around me. As I reflect back over the years and how my varied career has been stitched together by working with diverse people, to enable their growth and development. My roles have been driven by, teaching, training, managing, leading, mentoring and coaching. Coaching has always been a tool in my well equipped tool box alongside motivation and passion to empower others to achieve the best they can. I strive to be ready for every challenge, colleague, student, client and mentor alike.
A little way back...
I have studied and developed my skills to post graduate level in Education, business, strategic management and leadership. Alongside this delivering personal and professional development. My aim has been to work with the whole person to develop their skills, manage their wellbeing, jobs and home life. Using my core skills and values and moving confidently across sectors. I recognise the threads of familiarity from public, private and the voluntary sectors. I've learnt that the strategies and tools I have used over the years haven't changed. But my skills to interpret them have and apply them in different ways, to best empower my clients to use the right tool at the right time.
The Ups and Downs...
My life has had it's fair share of ups and downs. I have strived to present myself openly to show how I have overcome and managed the loss of my close family, fractures to self esteem, job loss and career change to re invent myself. The past has taught me to survive and lead the way for others.
A long way back...
I always knew that working with people and developing their potential is where I wanted to be. Working with people to overcome their challenges, thrive and survive by supporting people with learning and mental health challenges enabled me to see how to distil complex information into simple key messages for people to relate to. Understanding the challenges and the effects of their environment gave opportunities to give clear information, ask critical questions to identify the most valuable ways of improving their outcomes. Mental Health 20 years ago carried stigma for those afflicted, today we are happy when we are sharing our stories and seeking advice. Coaching has become more common place as people reach out for support in these challenging times.
