I am an introvert, which doesn’t mean that I am socially awkward, but rather that I value the inner life of the mind. I love learning and exploring different ways of seeing things. New ideas give me energy. In a world dominated by extroverts, my quiet thoughtfulness has always felt out of place. When I discovered coaching, acting as a thought partner for my clients, I realised that my introversion was my power. My stillness can fuel the quality of their thinking and seeing new ideas forming in another mind is an amazing privilege. My academic background in philosophy of mind and psychology grounds my practice. Neuroscience shows us how all behaviour, thought and decision making is underpinned by emotion and feeling, which is why I offer coaching in emotional intelligence as an acredited assessor for the EQ-i 2.0 assessment tool.
