ABOUT ME

____

My first love was international development, and for over 15 years I worked for international aid agencies, consulting companies and non-profits, dealing with big global issues of poverty, inequality, health and rights. With Master's degrees in Development Economics and in Reproductive and Sexual Health Research, I have taken very seriously my training in the economic, political, social and public health aspects of human development. But life has a way of teaching us its own lessons too - and after some painful life experiences and a rewarding internal journey, I added the personal dimension to my lifelong learning of what it means to be fully human. I read, I inquired, I listened to myself and others, I also studied yoga in depth, for years. I was eventually also coached, and being a pragmatist at heart, I resonated with the very tangible clarity and forward energy that coaching brought me.

I understood three things, that still drive me today: striving to know myself is the first step towards living the life I want; assuming responsibility for my own growth liberates me; achieving coherence of body, mind and soul is key to being in my power. I wanted to contribute to people’s lives with what I knew. I wanted a straightforward and great tool to do this, and I trained professionally as a Coach.
 
I am now dedicated to supporting leaders and teams to develop this self-awareness, take on the responsibility for their own internal coherence and growth, and achieve their goals from a place of integrity and consciousness, empowerment and agency.
 
I do this through leadership coaching, training, facilitation and speaking engagements.

On inhabiting ourselves – Life as a journey towards coherence

02-Sep

I hear the expression ‘be yourself’ everywhere. We live in an era where the ‘I’ is to be celebrated, and technology gives us the tools to do so every day – we share instant “reflections” (of parts) of who we are, every day. I am not here to question this ...

The most important thing

22-Jul

As it usually goes with Zen quotes, they are deceptively simplistic! At the start of this year I found myself thinking about how to ensure I don’t lose focus on what I dream of achieving. As many of you can probably relate to, so many of our plans get derailed ...

On finding a home

30-Mar

It’s been a while since I last wrote for this blog. I’ve missed it, as it is a place of belonging for me. And it’s about the concept of arriving home, of belonging, that I want to write about today. I didn’t write for so long as I needed to ...
