Writer and Speaker

Coaching Psychologist, Writer and Photographer

In 2020 I stepped away from the hurly burly of consulting to research a book – Spoon by Spoon – how we lose ourselves to work and life and how we get ourselves back. I interviewed 100 people in 27 countries, all going through career and life changes. Seventy-two hours of conversation and I have enough for a book. Now I just need to get on with it!

I write a weekly blog sharing stories and themes from the interviews. There are 70+ for your delectation plus feedback.

I’ve also entered the land of podcasting – talking to people about the “shoulds” in their lives. Find out more about the Tyranny of the Shoulds podcast here.

I’m a Featured Writer for The Room Psy including this and this. I have written for Pop-Up Business School here, here and here, two Coaching at Work articles and a report: Sailing Into Stormy Seas for Humanity Works Consultancy (both below). I supported on a chapter of this coaching supervision book and am quoted in BBC Worklife here.

In October 2020 I spoke at the Aspire Reinvent conference about my reinvention from management consultant to writer. There were 1600 women from 60 countries. We all fitted into Zoom. It was a tight squeeze. Here is some delegate feedback and below an edited version of my presentation.
