About Me

Focus

I have a passion to see people empowered in their lives, discover how they are ‘hard-wired’ and what they do best (their best contribution).

The Highlands Whole Person Model and Ability Battery are integral parts of my coaching. Depending on the specific needs of my clients, I also utilise other personal development tools and for those who want to involve spirituality in their coaching process, a unique adaptation of the S.H.A.P.E. model, based on my book, Empowered!

Experience

I began coaching in 2008 and have helped people from around the world, including from Asia, North America, and in the UK. With my extensive experience living cross-culturally, I bring a breadth of understanding and insight to my clients.

In addition to personal life coaching, I am able to provide consultancy on transition, cross-cultural adjustment, re-entry/culture shock, working with multi-cultural teams, and how to minimise the challenges of living cross-culturally, either as an individual or as a family.
