I am in love with creating and in awe of the creative process, specifically that moment of creation when something new emerges out of nothing, out of nowhere, out of the old – when transformation takes place. The mystery of that moment enthrals me.
As a result, I have spent the last 25 years studying and developing the art of transformation. Originally this took the form of professional actress, trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama (my ability to transform was such that I was given the ubiquitous label of ‘character actress’) and then since 2011 as a coach – powerful coaching is highly creative.
I entered the world of coaching through neuro-lingusitic programming, having trained as a Master NLP Practitioner with Dr John Grinder, the co-creator of NLP. I have subsequently trained in cognitive hypnotherapy and various coaching practices and am heavily influenced by the work of Carl Jung and existential philosophy.
I am particularly drawn to ritual and delving deep into liminal spaces, where real transformation takes place. These are often where the challenging and messy moments in the change process occur. Within these moments I skilfully balance humour with a profound curiosity and fearlessness, in order to assist others in their own evolution.
My current research interest lies in the power of dialogue together with thinking styles (how people pattern, organise and make sense of their world) and I am passionate about supporting others in holding open and honest conversations, whilst evolving their thinking to gain wider and deeper perspectives. I believe we are limited in what we can do and achieve ONLY to the extent of our current perspectives.
I am drawn to working with people who have a deep calling to profoundly impact others through their creative output, people who are creative pioneers in their heart and soul and are currently overwhelmed by the direction they are being compelled to move in – these are the people who really challenge and excite me.
