Coaching approach

I have a holistic view of coaching - I work with the 'whole person' using psychological principles as well as the organisation/context which they are operating within. I use an integrated approach combining my CBT/REBT based psychotherapy training together with my Gestalt based accredited coach training. My prior background in business and the fact that I'm a Chartered Organisational Psychologist enable me to understand consultancy and business context. I believe my strength is my ability to connect and build trust with people, working with them to reach their objectives. Moving to the UK from Trinidad, I have developed a career whilst being married with two young children. I am passionate about coaching individuals to help them achieve their aspirations and am very aware of the challenges both men and women face.
