After many years working with large charities and businesses, alongside community organising, I now focus on supporting organisations, groups and networks tackling complex issues including homelessness, inequality and climate change.
I am ever inspired by the nonviolence movement and nonviolent communication (NVC) – seeing our common humanity and interconnectedness underpins everything I do.
I enjoy the creativity and flow that comes with starting with connection and sensing wisdom emerging from groups. I enjoy bringing different approaches and methods to support people to step outside their usual patterns and ways of knowing, and allowing something new to open up.
As co-founder and director of a small charity (Street Support Network), I also understand the challenge of running an organisation where time and resources are limited, and so I value efficiency, and offer flexibility in services and cost.
I am grateful to have a strong network of skilled and experienced collaborators with different specialisms, which enables me to draw in other skills and experiences, including through Reconnect Works.
I am based in West Yorkshire and work in Manchester, Leeds and online. I am open to travel further afield. Please get in touch if you would like to explore.
