As a organisational change practitioner and coach my focus is on the people side of business to inspire change and ignite potential.
Integral to the services I offer is the fact that I continue to work with different organisations to support organisational transformation, change and coaching. It keeps me grounded, real and aware of the everyday impacts on people when working in fast paced, constantly changing environments and ambiguous situations. What I offer here comes from my own lived experiences and a way of living that allows me to maintain a consistent and steady presence while valuing the relationships I build and following through with workplace deliverables.
Valuing the quality of the people within our service and valuing ourselves and our health as an essential asset in any organisation is paramount. In fact I consider this to be the true leadership of today.

I have been fortunate to work with a number of organisations in delivering workshops, online programs and retreats to support staff and in some cases clients. These have all been bespoke services tailored specifically to the needs of the organisation and culture.
When we consider that our quality, consistency, integrity, productivity and
connection with others can only be equal to where we are at and what we
choose for ourselves, self-care becomes of paramount importance.

"I was able to better understand how important I am and how to listen to my body's rhythm. I felt in a better place after the session than I did before. The conversation around the lunch table was invaluable to the team and there seems to be a intensified sense of camaraderie between team members since the retreat".
