I love to see people flourish, learn, and thrive. It's the best thing.
My parents, family and friends, together with colleagues and students during a 14 year career teaching Classics, followed by 21 years running my own business, have enriched, exhilarated, challenged, and inspired me beyond measure.
Life is a rich tapestry of joys and losses, farewells and welcomes, vulnerability and uncertainty, dislocations, turbulence, imbalance and balance. And of celebrations. The mixing desk of ups and downs.
Now, as a qualified professional in coaching and in energy work, I am delighted, if still a little bewildered, by the unplanned synthesis of the various strands in my life. I am so grateful to those who have shared with me their passions and their energy.
My intention is to continue to share mine, to keep learning, and to make a difference wherever I can.
I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.
