Welcome

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 to the left.

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.

  • When “professionals” don’t think twice, and snake oil sales go unchecked… In my feed this morning: From someone describing themselves as a “Researcher/SPSS Analyst/Systematic Reviewer/Psychologist/Counsellor & Coach Specialist for Professionals & PhD Students”; This mind/body split (apparantly due to Descartes, a philosopher) is rapidly changing.
