Coaching Empowers individuals to take control of their goals

I am passionate about enabling everyone, at every stage in their career to excel. I support, encourage, and challenge my clients to explore their opportunities, recognise their abilities and achieve their goals, just as I have had throughout my career journey.

With 30 years’ experience as a chartered architect and project director leading multi-disciplined design teams for large international practices, I have become fascinated by what makes an effective team player. 

Working in a traditionally male environment has illuminated some interesting insights into the value of a blended team. It has given me an interest in addressing the gender imbalance prevailing in some industries. For example in the property and construction industry women currently represent only 18% of workforce.

For my contribution in promoting women in the built environment I was awarded: 


Women in the City, Woman of Achievement Award (Built Environment category) 2010


CBI/Lloyds TSB, First Woman’s Award (Property & Retail Category) 2006

In 2007 I was recognised by Her Majesty the Queen as one of the Top 200 Women of Influence in Industry and Business
