When life at the top becomes too lonely…


  • When you’re unsure of the loyalties of those around you…
  • When a complex situation is unfolding too quickly…
  • When you are negotiating a political minefield…

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.

Together they are so ineffective that according to a delightful ...

It isn’t for everyone, but at least giving it a try may help you identify another way of doing something that is better for you. Keeping a journal has long been associated with the leaders of ...
  • Why is research so important? Some of you know that I hold a couple of research posts currently. Being ‘evidence-led’ is the mantra of many professions and organisations at present.
