Bio

I work as a coach, mediator and trainer with individuals and teams. I have also been an organic gardener since my mid-teens and this has given me an appreciation of the interconnectedness and interdependence of all systems. Over 25 years ago I developed an interest in how groups work as I was a member of several community groups and could see that they could work better. I began to study how to facilitate groups and how their internal dynamic impacts on their results. Combining this with my interest in organics and ecosystems led me to taking a whole systems approach to life and how we work together. I bring this understanding to all situations in which I work, whether with an individual, a team, an organisation or a community. In the 25 years that I have been working in organisations as a member, a worker, a consultant, a director or as a manger, I have taken a lead in increasing their effectiveness by supporting dynamic and positive change. I understand the environment in which leaders and followers operate and I have the experience of helping them to develop and change. I have worked in many intense conflict situations including Northern Ireland, Nicaragua and Israel & Palestine. My academic qualifications include an MA in Conflict Facilitation and Organisational Change, and a BSc in Psychology. My approach is greatly informed by Process Work, which I use to support awareness of underlying processes and with this awareness effect meaningful and lasting change. I am particularly interested in supporting and developing people’s capacity to engage in healthy conflict for the benefit of themselves, their organisation and their community. I have recently become very interested in using Social Media as a tool for marketing business or community projects and campaigns. When I'm not working you will find me growing organic vegetables, in the kitchen cooking up a storm or down on the beach at Portsalon......
