I am an experienced international development consultant with training and experience in coaching. I have a unique set of skills and experience, which combines a deep understanding of the challenges facing those who work in the humanitarian and development fields, with the important role coaching can play in bringing about change from within, liberating peoples’ potential and increasing their impact in the world. I am driven by a desire to support clients to deepen their consciousness and find purpose, meaning and passion in their lives so that they can truly be the change they wish to see in the world.

You are full of strengths as a coach. You allowed me to feel comfortable and think aloud about my work, my areas of possible improvement, my hidden talents. The way you drove the coaching without letting me think you were driving was extremely powerful. You gave me a coaching that went well beyond my expectations because you allowed me to take a step back and think broadly about my work, my future expectations, how to take smart risks by adding new abilities, and making my work more colorful.
