Individual Coaching and Constellation Workshop Facilitation

Personal coaching for individuals

If you are serious about responding to what life requires of you – and throws at you – if you want to make a lasting difference in yourself and the way you respond to the world and the pressures and opportunities it offers then you have the opportunity to create the sort of life that matters and that you can enjoy. 

If you can agree to everything about yourself and the world just as it is before changing it, then you are ready to live fully. 

I come alongside individuals of repute to enable:

  • An understanding of the deep human need to belong and the effect that has on you and the other people in your business
  • An understanding of the importance of influencing the cycle of joining, belonging and leaving in a respectful way
  • An understanding of the unwritten rules, the organising forces in systems which, when ignored or violated, cause limiting dynamics
  • A fresh view of the system and your place in it, so you can influence with authority and know how to lead change and respond to success and crisis with integrity
  • An inner alignment of your personality and your professional role to enable you to lead with everyone and everything in mind whilst feeling resourced and empowered

Bring your biggest questions and challenges, share your hopes and fears and you will be ready to lead in a way that enables you, the business and everyone connected to it to thrive. Leading in this way creates engaged and committed individuals and teams and whole organisations that thrive.

I work with the person with the most responsibility for the whole (most often the CEO or founder) to support them create the conditions for organisational health across the system. This enables leadership which creates psychological safety and high performance in engaged individuals and teams that also creates an enduring legacy.

Experiential workshops

I am a not a ‘motivational conference speaker’ nor am I a TED talk style presenter sharing insights from my personal journey. I offer something else: embodied learning about life, about intimate relationships and about leadership. I do this through a mix of engaging presentation and experiences.

I introduce small and large groups to the unwritten rules of life and what it means to truly live, love and lead with the system in mind. All my work is underpinned by an intention to support flow so that individuals, teams and whole organisations can thrive. 

For large groups (30 to 300 people) the participative constellation workshops I facilitate offer a mix of fresh insights and practical tools to use in life and in leadership.

My first book revolutionised the coaching industry and my next book, The Whole River Flows is designed to do the same for senior managers and leaders who are interested in creating the conditions for organisational health. My writing is designed to support my work with leaders and teams and as a facilitator of these experiential workshops.
