Welcome

My website has moved to WordPress and, with a little help from my friends (Ads and H) will soon be fully operational.

I’ll be posting information, photos and stories about my work and contact details if you want to find out more.

It’s a learning curve for me and an opportunity to stretch my creative resourcefulness. Which is at the heart of my work – supporting people to fulfil their potential, building on their strengths, developing new skills and capacity and creating the lives they want to live.

I offer counselling, coaching and facilitation using person centred, experiential and strengths based approaches. Working 1:1 and with groups, my focus is encouraging people to work

in the way that best suits them, being creative and innovative, within a supportive and accepting

environment. We co-create the space to do our best work and take the time to reflect and learn.

I’m a clinical supervisor bringing whole person and strengths based approaches to our work in reviewing and supporting your clinical practice.

As an independent civil Celebrant, I help people to create and deliver personal and unique ceremonies for weddings and funerals.

I’m currently running a community singing group for people with dementia and their supporters (Blue Skies singing group) and am planning a series of open workshops including:

Dying to Talk: Facing death, Embracing Life – with Joan Scarrott. Windsor in 28 September 2017 – places still available.

Peak Practice: appreciating and developing your counselling/supervision practice.

A good life: learning circles for appreciative living.

AI Essentials: the spirit, ethos and DNA of Appreciative Inquiry with David Shaked

London 15-17 November 2017 – places still available.
