Current Roles & Affiliations

Director, Transition Expertise, 2013 – now

Executive coaching, team and leadership development.
Niche consultancy using the research findings from Executive Director Christopher Connolly’s PhD on transition expertise. Transition expertise is the ability to make transitions from one relatively stable position or situation to another. The transitions themselves can be unstable or unpredictable; handling this can require a special combination of abilities and skills: cognitive flexibility, environmental competence, and a judicious mix of personal and interpersonal skills.

I have worked closely with PCI founder Sir John Whitmore over many years. Together, we designed and continue to deliver Transpersonal Coaching [Publications, 2006] based on the model of Psychosynthesis [download].

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.
