Working as a confidant to leaders and other people of power, I provide senior executive, business and leadership ‘counsel’, with a psychodynamic focus, helping you to exceed your own tough expectations by seeing situations, organisations, yourself and others, differently. I have been working behind the scenes like this for over a decade – you will find details of my qualifications, experience and testimonials by following the tabs above.

My articles reflect various aspects of my work. Use the menu to select particular themes.

If you feel I might be able to help you, please call, use skype, or email.

In order to have someone create a role for you, they need to ...
