During my 25 year career in the NHS, I originally trained as a counsellor and CBT therapist. Continuing my fascination with human behaviours I then became a Master NLP Practitioner and a Clean Language Coach. All these qualifications are experiential in their approach, giving me a change in my mindset and my own confidence increased.
By 2010 a yearning for a change in direction, I left my role with the NHS to establish her own business, 2minds. During the last 10 years, I have worked one-to-one with many individual clients, delivered leadership and team programmes for large corporates such as BMW, Sainsbury’s, as well as other SMB. I also enjoy my work in prisons and schools across the UK.
My own personal journey, along with my training, is an integral part of my services. My book ‘A Path Travelled’ is this journey and more.
My work with people and teams help them to explore, recognise and understand why we think like we do. Using the neuroscience behind our behaviours, this enables and empowers people to become more aware of how the mind works.
This approach works particularly well in leadership which creates employee engagement and better results for organisations.
I find that self-awareness allows leaders to understand their impact on others. If that is combined with emotional intelligence and social intelligence, then they have the capability to be more effective leaders. Some leaders will already express innate high levels of emotional intelligence, but this can also be learned.
We all love learning more about ourselves and how we think, behave and act; why we do what we do compared to others
A team leader’s feedback about me was “Her vivaciousness and natural ability to engage people is unique“.
I am based on the Wirral, Merseyside although may travel to reach you.
