I am a graduate of University of Cambridge in Coaching Psychology and Foundational Cognitive Psychology (focusing on Neuropsychology). A member of the University of Cambridge Coaching Alumni and have coached on the Queens Young Leaders Programme. 

 

Currently consulting with and guest lecturing academically on the Neuroscience of Coaching and Well-Being at the Universities of Cambridge, BirkBeck. My specialisms are in Stress Management and Anxiety Disorders, Life transitions and Change, Social and Professional adaptability of A.I.

 

​My specialised areas of study are in Free Will, Consciousness and Movement heavily influenced by Cambridge Neuroscientist Daniel Wolpert which has shaped my evolutionary approach to coaching and movement from the Board room to the Yoga Studio. I believe that an evolutionary way of thinking may provide us with different coping mechanisms and alternative pathways in dealing with transition and adaptability around Social and Economic drivers such as A.I. and the diverse society we all find ourselves now living in.
