Some FAQs

Have you done any training?
Yes! I’m committed to my personal and professional development. I’ve trained in Nonviolent Communication, Authentic Relating, and multiple coaching and healing modalities including Reiki and Neurolinguistic Programming. I studied Psychology at university level, am a member of The Weekend University and – after years of self-study – am returning to academia for an MSc in Consciousness and Transpersonal Psychology.

I’m deeply influenced by the contributions of Brené Brown, Esther Perel, Julia CameronDaniel Goleman and Marshall Rosenberg. As is my work.

What's your background?

My career story has three threads – Brand, Community and Psychology.

I started out in marketing because it seemed like a good blend of psych and business, but as time went on I wanted to get deeper into the ‘why’. Every time I asked business owners and their teams that question I got closer to uncovering the core identity of a business, and so I focused my consultancy on brand identity and alignment.

In 2014, I became enthralled with the idea of ‘belonging’ and fell into the world of coworking and coliving. I’ve since run 3 different spaces in London, including 42 Acres – the city’s first conscious coworking space. I also founded the London Coworking Assembly to bring together fellow community builders, because it wouldn’t feel right to do it alone.

Alongside this sits a more personal journey. My interest in belonging wasn’t academic – that same year, I had an emotional breakdown that had me question everything I thought I knew about myself. After a very public ‘confession’ about the depression I was experiencing at the time, I worked through various forms of therapy, meditation, mindfulness, journaling, coaching, self-development, and reading, reading, reading.

The way I understand that crisis today is that it was the moment that my real self stood up and refused to keep pretending to be someone else. In the years since, I’ve found deep meaning in helping other people to connect with their inner selves and live authentically.

What exactly is emotional intelligence?

Emotional Intelligence combines aspects of Intrapersonal Intelligence (relating to self-knowledge) and Interpersonal Intelligence (looking at the relationships between people). I view these as two sides of a coin; they’re inherently linked because the quality of a person’s relationship with themselves shapes their relationships with others. Read more

Isn't all this touchy-feely stuff a bit woowoo?

Actually, the only person who’s ever asked me this is me… But I sense I’m not the only one who’s wondered!

I believe there is so much wisdom to be found in our emotional and spiritual selves, and that the world will be a better place when we do. But I also love working with science and the mind, and value the clarity of intellect, strategy and logical reasoning. And a good spreadsheet.

I have no interest in pitting the heart and the mind against one other. Real power and real harmony exist in the coming together of the two.
