About My Business:


I've developed a unique approach to understanding diversity, centred around inquiry, that facilitates a process of creative change involving curiosity, exploration, acceptance and willingness to be wrong. From this open, rather than controlling, space springs your potential for improvement, cohesion and growth. The shadow of this method is uncertainty, complexity and decay, which most people try to avoid, but they are essential to healthy, resilient change. I'll leave you feeling confident to hold yourself and situations in a way that allows you to respond clearly, flexibly and professionally to the "light and dark" of change. I work comfortably with businesses, community organisations, academic organisations, Government agencies and individuals. My professional experience in counselling, social work, adult learning, business management, social media, public speaking and entertainment give me a range of contexts to draw from. More at
