Positive psychology and coaching shows us that when leaders and teams are less stressed they focus, collaborate creatively, innovate and get along. Common sense right? But it takes a real leader to recognise this -  and intent to create a culture in which that can happen. 

I give individuals and teams skills and tools to reach their potential, foster their EQ and resilience, and work with leaders to foster dynamic cultures. Get in touch to find out more.


Enhancing Resilience: Provides a well-being formula for your business: 1)practices (including the proven practice of mindfulness) to ensure long-term longevity in a stressful business environment and 2)a fresh look at dealing with change productively.

Thriving: A Strengths-Based Approach to getting the best from your teams by focusing on strengths and potential – for higher productivity, engaged employees, and stellar results (rather than status quo results).

Advancing EQ: A tutorial (and practice sessions) on bringing empathy and courage skills to the table in every day conflict and difficult conversations. Those happen - but the good news is that you can preserve and grow relationships through them.

Mental Health Awareness: 1 in 5 New Zealanders experience anxiety and/or depression. The stats aren't decreasing. A look at the statistics, underlying factors, and ensuring businesses have the understanding and resources they need.

* All offerings include training and the option for 1:1 coaching. You can also contact me to chat about your business’ specific needs.

How do I know this stuff?

I worked for 13 years in Politics and Law: in the U.S. at a national level and also in New Zealand. I get corporate. I get conflict.

My training and experience as a coach:

  • helping people get fired up (find and use their potential/thrive!)

  • teaching people how to cope with life and work (resilience, mental health, mindfulness)

  • improving outlook on change (resilience)

  • flipping conflict on it’s head for different results (advancing EQ)
