As your prospective partner in coaching supervision, I am incisive yet warm, with keen antennae for the heart of an issue, parallel process, and the deeper patterns ‘in play’. I’m an astute and experienced APECS accredited executive coach and, as your supervisor, I’ll ask courageous questions whilst respecting your own standing and experience as a coach. Working together, we’ll pool our wisdom to enhance your work with clients and client systems.

I bring a calm presence to my supervision sessions, drawing on both my personal experience in senior roles in organisations and the breadth of client scenarios I’ve encountered. This informed perspective of the systems in which your coaching clients operate creates potential for offering insight into your case-work.

I aim to support you in:

  • Gaining perspective, reflecting on your practice, and accessing your deeper wisdom to think creatively and courageously about your impact
  • Developing your capacity to acknowledge and celebrate your good practice and work that delights you
  • Continuing to expand and refine your awareness, and make positive changes in your practice.

My award-winning book, ‘Pause for Breath: bringing the practices of mindfulness and dialogue to leadership conversations’, gives a flavour of my approach and style.
