I have over 25 yrs board level experience and over 1,000 hours coaching. I have found the edges of my own resilience. I was first introduced to coaching and trained in coaching in 2011 whilst working as part of the leadership team at AstraZeneca, and started coaching as part of my role internally. I started to realise the power of coaching and left AZ to become in time a full time coach for Oxford Innovation. I started to move beyond the tools and approaches to focus on the person behind the entrepreneurs and innovators I was coaching. Whilst at OI I started to deepen my coaching and decided to pursue ICF PCC in my own time. In 2017 I studied for ICF PCC level coaching at the holistically focused Evolution Coaching academy. By 2018 I was completely in love with coaching and I left OI to start my own coaching practice. In June 2019 I gained my ICF PCC. Later in 2019 I developed my own person focused coaching model (The Balanced Horizon Canvas), co-authored a coaching book and adopted the VIA strengths based approach to coaching. I coach leaders, managers, founders and directors who want to find balance and create shift and I do so with a big heart. I now have over 1,000 hrs logged.
