My passion is to connect deeply with people using empathy and my sense of humour inspiring change and action and I’m a big believer in using somatic and body work, meditation and language to support transformation. It’s the music, movement and vulnerability of emotions clearly expressed linguistically that people most connect with in sessions with me.
I was the senior buyer for an online department store and prior to that the business development manager for an importer and distributor of home and giftware in Australia. I am also a certified Gemologist and founded a boutique jewellery store in the 90s. Having lived in Singapore, Australia, Indonesia and India, I have had experience in many cultures and fields before immersing myself into designing, facilitating and coaching programs for senior leaders in large corporations which cascaded all the way, sideways and down and worked with forums, entrepreneurs and artists internationally.
I got to live my passion in Aberkyn in my latest program – a complete Organizational Culture Transformation Journey with a top financial services company in South East Asia having personally delivered over 60 workshops in 18 months, supporting the CEO, CHRO and the organization to define their Values and Purpose and align on new behaviours and mindsets through multiple innovative types of interventions.
I’m a life–long learner and immerse myself every year in further developing my strengths as I believe the day I stop being a white–belt learner I will have stopped being able to teach. I am the author of a number of books: The Mind Spa – Ignite Your Inner Life Coach; Don’t Think of a Blue Ball (translated into Bahasa Indonesia as “Buat Apa Susah”); Thankfulness, Appreciation, Gratitude, an audio book, “Decide, Declare, Achieve – If Not Now, then When?” and an iTunes mobile app to help individuals find their centre called EmBodyingPower.
I live in Singapore with my partner and my daughter is a teacher and an author in Australia. I practice TM (Transcendental Meditation), Yoga, Pilates and I love walking outdoors, beach holidays, dancing and music.
