She transfers her therapeutic skills, and knowledge gained from working in the LGBT sector, to her coaching work. As such she is able to connect with you on a more perceptive, intuitive, and empathic level than would likely be found in generic or corporate coaching. This makes her ideally placed to identify and attend to any emotional blocks, and to be able to recognise early on when you might benefit from counselling rather than coaching, saving her time, and you money!
Her style of coaching is designed to respect, nurture and promote your inner wisdom and emotional functioning. She believes she can get the best from you by being gently and respectfully challenging, always moving you forwards and ensuring that your goals fit with who you are and where you want to be.
She has studied to degree level as a counsellor, and taken further academic study in domestic violence, psychoanalytic psychology, therapeutic group facilitation, HIV & AIDS, trans awareness, and coaching.
She is a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and is bound by their code of ethics in practice, which is also applicable to her coaching work (please visit www.bacp.co.uk for more information).
She is a life member of The Coaching Academy, London, with whom she trained to diploma level (www.the-coaching-academy.co.uk).
For part of her week she manages an LGBT Youth service in East London. She is also a City Lit tutor, training professionals in sexual & gender diversity.
She writes for the LGBT press on occasion, and provides consultancy on pink personal development issues for organisations and the media.
