Clients' 'aha' moments bring me great satsifaction. In my previous life as a Senior Lecturer, I loved facilitating people's learning and development, something that is core to my values and continues to drive me in my role role as a coach. I bring to my coaching many years of experience as an academic working in the fields of gender and culture, enabling me to see the 'big picture' when facilitating clients to find their own pathways through existing social structures. While I enjoy working with all clients, I have a particular interest in coaching women. I have a PhD in Contemporary Women's Writing and Theory and an ILM Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring.
