From a young age, I’ve been passionate about human rights and helping to empower people to better their lives. That passion led me to complete a BA in Political Science (it really is about human behavior) and a Masters degree in Human Rights from the London School of Economics. I spent 15 years working with human rights and development, including with the United Nations, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the International Law and Policy Institute.
Becoming disillusioned with the lack of ‘impact’ I was seeing, and wanting meaningful change in my own life, I sought out a life and career coach. When I saw how coaching worked for me, I wanted to use the same tools and processes to empower others to create change in their own lives. And so I signed up for an eight-month coaching course with the Martha Beck Institute. I’ve also completed training programs in career coaching and financial coaching.
I believe we all have an inner GPS that directs us towards our ‘right life’. We just need to tune in and listen.
I believe that if we get really clear on what it is we want, we can make it happen (and no, it doesn’t require pushing or striving).
I believe that we always have a choice. Always.
I believe that our deepest valleys can also be our highest peaks and bring with them our greatest opportunities for growth and expansion. Perspective is everything. Change that and everything changes.
I believe we’re stronger, more resilient and braver than we give ourselves credit for.
I believe that we’re too close to ourselves to truly see our own strengths, our best qualities, our power. Sometimes we need them reflected back to us. So that we can know them. So that we can own them.
I believe in being authentic; dancing like no-one’s watching, and always having a second serving of rhubarb and crumble.
