I look forward to hearing from you,
“With a professional background in Community Education, I embody a passion for supporting the learning and development of others. I established Acorn Principle Plus in 2003 to create the conditions – and the opportunities – for people to connect with their potential and to coach others to find fulfilment in life and work. Recent studies in neuro-leadership and mindfulness have deepened my intention to share what I’ve learned and I am excited to be able to do that through the medium of online learning.”
"I have worked in financial services for most of my adult life and it gave me the opportunity to meet a wonderfully diverse range of people. It also allowed me to indulge in one of my passions which is seeing others achieve the best for themselves. As a manager, coaching proved to be a tool that allowed individuals the opportunity to fulfil their potential and achieve results that dramatically changed their lives".
“Having worked in local government: children and young people services for almost 30 years I have gained a deep understanding of the needs of this client group and those working to support them. Over twenty years of managerial and leadership roles, focusing on the professional development of individuals, teams and organisations has equipped me to serve my clients well. I have held key roles in taking organisations and individuals through change management processes and I have a real passion for bringing balance into roles in which change, stress, anxiety and burnout are prevalent. My approach is underpinned by years of coaching and mindfulness training and practice as well as my own experience as a manger and a leader.”
