My background is in marketing and advertising, with over 25 years’ experience in senior agency and marketing leadership roles in the UK, Europe and Canada. After three years in executive search, I retrained as a business psychologist and executive coach. I work with people in all kinds of sectors, but especially with senior people in advertising, media and marketing.

I’ve genuinely enjoyed my career, but I’ve also experienced some of the things that can make working life a struggle: learning to be a leader, changing career, redundancy, resignation, new teams, new roles, promotions, burnout, difficult projects and challenging people. It’s why I’m a coach now: I want to give others the support I wish I’d had, so they can stop worrying about work and get on with enoying it.

I’m a certified coach with a Diploma in Coaching (ICE, University of Cambridge) and an MSc in Organisational Psychology (Birkbeck, University of London). I’m on the British Psychological Society’s register of psychometric test users and am certified to use a number of personality assessments, which I use for both individual and team coaching.

I’m a member of the Association for Coaching and the Association for Business Psychology, and abide by their Codes of Ethics.
