Monthly Reflections

  • City Shapers

    February 2018

    It was yet another underwhelming experience and I wondered why I’d bothered. I was sitting at another one of those ‘Community Engagement workshops’. These workshops are usually facilitated by the local council, health trust or third sector consultants, designed to hear from local residents and to also share plans for the future.  They are often […]

    New Year’s Inspiration!

    January 2018

    Over the past year, I have found myself in a number of situations where I have been ‘s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d’ to the extreme and left wondering if I have what it takes to ‘get the job done’!  During these times, I have learned to draw upon the many leadership (and self-leadership) lessons I have gleaned from my […]

  • ‘Tis the season to be…?

    December 2017

    I lurve a good bargain!  Ask any of my friends!  I just can’t resist the opportunity to haggle – forgetting I’m on the High Street, UK – not in India! I know that some of you out there will understand!  There’s nothing quite like the adrenaline rush you get from buying an item for less […]

    Light Bearers

    October 2017

    Jasper, Dolly, Peanut, and Lucy.. all know.  They know that it’s that time of year again…  Fireworks, loud bangs, bright flashes, random whizzes fizzing and flying through the dark night sky.  They dread this time of year.. not easily consoled, nowhere safe to hide.  When will it end?  No amount of sound therapy or clinical […]

    Visionary Leadership How Good is your Vision?

    September 2017

    Moving home is a big challenge: moving countries and creating a whole new life is an even BIGGER challenge! My husband and I faced a reluctant relocation after 19 years of living overseas and the decision making required was immense. Added to that were my big questions for God: where will we live…what type of […]

  • Leadership That Transforms

    August 2017

    A story is told of a man who wanted to change the world.  He tried as hard as he could, but really did not accomplish anything.  So he thought that instead he should just try to change his country, but he had no success at that either.  Then he tried to change his city and […]

    A Good Read For Women

    July 2017

    Social media might be replacing print media, but as far as women are concerned, the content is not a million miles apart. Whether looking over the shelves of women’s magazines or novels in the station bookshop, or scrolling down women’s Facebook pages, one  significant characteristic stands out. It’s that women are interested in the lives […]

What you’re saying

  • Coaching provided a non-judgemental space for me to reflect on our Church vision and strategic objectives. It also had a hugely positive impact on the way I lead and relate to others.

    Senior Minister, Church


  • Thank you so much… this experience has been life changing.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • It has made me question my reasons for coming to particular decisions looking further into myself to re- discover some of my underlying values which I may have ignored before.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • Outstanding event, top class speakers!

    General Testimonial

  • I really appreciated the way in which the equality of men and women together has been emphasised, this is lacking in most women based stuff I’ve looked at or been a part of. Maybe men would benefit from some of the teaching too?

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • I appreciate the spiritual wisdom, discernment and sense, which are always evident in our meetings.

    Church leadership team member

    General Testimonial

  • Just days after the programme ended I was selected for a change management project role in a global organisation. The clarity I’d gained through coaching to make this choice was essential and I am now steps closer to my true vocation. Thanks again.
