I have spent the last 25+ years supporting senior leaders and their teams through a wide range of organizational change initiatives. Clients have included Shell, Tata Steel, EDF, Hewlett Packard and various Whitehall Departments, as well as various Local Authorities, a Further Education college and several charities. I'm an experienced facilitator and coach, and enjoy working on 'live' change challenges with all kinds of leaders and teams. I'm also a qualified adult educator who has taught organisational change at postgraduate level.
Co-Directing and Freelancing
My recent working life includes seven years as Director of a niche change consultancy where I enjoyed co-creating the consulting approach, and worked on a series of complex change assignments for corporate clients in the UK, Mainland Europe and South Africa. Before this I was a freelance consultant for 15 years, partnering with several well-known international change consultancies, learning my craft from experts, as well as working directly with senior clients.
Experience and Training
In change advice and facilitation work, I draw on my experience of using a range of organisational change frameworks and diagnostic processes, and access deeper understandings through mapping the relevant wider system and its particular design and flow. Qualified to use various recognised leadership and team development tools, I am also able to provide sound support for leaders and their teams when they are stretched by the challenges they are facing. I have also been part of a global group exploring depth psychology, human connection and mindfulness practices for the last 10 years - and this has supported me to be increasingly clear, collaborative and compassionate in my work.
A considerable advantage of being an Independent Consultant is that I can be flexible about costs. I want to be able to support different types of organizations, so I transparently tailor costs in line with i) the direct client's own level of remuneration ii) the potential value created by the change work we do together.

I live in Wiltshire with my husband. We have two grown-up children in various stages of leaving home. I enjoy dog-walking, playing the piano, listening to music & podcasts, watching films, reading books, dancing, spending time with friends and family and from time to time getting involved in improvisation and comedy.
