I’m inspired by possibility and believe that business needs to be part of the solution.
As a changemaker, it’s not always easy to be the change you want to see in the world. We can get in our own way or come up against external barriers. Our dedication to making change can take over our lives, putting a strain on our health and relationships. I coach leaders and changemakers to help them move past these barriers and into the life they want to create.
My work is founded in a deep understanding of how hard and lonely it can be to make change. I've spent over 20 years in Brussels, working globally with sustainability-focussed businesses, from start-ups to huge multinationals. I came to coaching as a way to go deeper with my clients to help them have even more impact in the world.
I believe we cannot waste the opportunity we have to make change, change that is urgently needed on many fronts - from the climate emergency and environmental destruction to racial equality and social injustice, as well as finding new ways to operate in a system that at times seems so broken.
As a trauma-informed* coach, I support leaders from all walks of life to move forward in their lives and in the world. If you are in a position to make change in a business, organisation or community, then having a coach who aligns with your values will help you thrive in the opportunity.
I believe that with the right leadership, business can and must be part of the solution. That’s why we need resilient changemakers who bring their whole selves to work and show up to lead with integrity.
*I coach all kinds of leaders, not only those who identify as dealing with trauma. Think of my trauma-informed lens as permission - permission to be yourself and not censor yourself.
Getting out of your own way
I trust in my ability as a coach to help you find your own answers. This is much more powerful than being told what to do. Think about all the talks you've watched or courses you've followed. Did they give you the answers? The real answers? They may help us on our way but getting to the core of what matters to you is an inside job. As a coach, I can help you get there.
While you do your personal work, I hold a safe space to help you move forward. My questions and insights will help move you past blocks and barriers, while fully supporting you as a whole person. I believe that we all know deep down what’s right for us. We just need to learn to listen.
So how does it work?
We meet on a video or phone call every week. We typically start with a 12-week coaching programme. Some people prefer to meet every two weeks and many continue well past 12 weeks. We set a general direction to head in – something you want to work on or change – and we are open to whatever comes up. We sign a coaching agreement which commits each of us to fully show up for the sessions. Sessions are confidential (with some ethical and safety caveats which I will explain before we start working together).
Between you and me
Being a changemaker can feel like a heavy burden at times. But this is a critical moment in history. It is a privilege to have this opportunity at a time that matters so much to future generations. That’s the reward and I believe it's worth it.
