ABOUT

As well as being a spouse, parent, grandparent and member of my community I am a registered psychologist who is passionate about helping people, teams and organisations to change, to adapt to ever changing circumstances. I do this as a psychotherapist, a leadership and lifestyle coach, through organisational consulting and conducting training programs.


Learning is a major component of change and I am the co-founder of an approach called Self-Determined Learning or Heutagogy. The principles and practice of Self-Determined Learning are used in schools, higher education and training rooms all around the world.


As an academic I developed a passion for research and writing. The author of around 130 or so publications, I continue to research, supervise research students and publish.


In Simon Sinek’s terms, my ‘Why’ is for people to be the best that they can possibly be so that they can live satisfying lives and also have a positive impact on others and the world at large.

To achieve my vision, my ‘Why’, I:

  •  help people with psychological problems through psychotherapy. I am skilled at providing Telehealth via Zoom, Skype and FaceTime and have been registered as a psychologist since 1986 using a variety of evidence-based methods.

  • coach people to help them change their behaviour to become healthier or a better team member or leader. Using a solution-oriented approach based in psychotherapy, I have coached leaders at all levels, from executive to those looking to a leadership role, for more than 30-years. If you really want to become excellent at what you do, coaching is the best way to achieve it.

  • work with teams to help them become more effective. An initial assessment leads to the design of a change program that will depend on the specific needs of the team. This may involve coaching, training, and strategic change.

  • In addition, I am an experienced mediator where there is conflict between individuals or teams.

  • deliver training and development programs.
