Coaching individuals and groups has been a central aspect of my work as a performing arts leader and international tutor for the last 25 years. It’s a skill others have recognised in me and a role that I have found deeply satisfying.

In recent years, I’ve developed and extended my coaching expertise so that I can provide you an excellent coaching experience. To this end I have now acquired full certification in Executive Coaching and Mentoring accredited by The City and Guilds of London Institute and the Institute of Leadership and Management.

 

I started out in life as a dancer, trained at the Royal Swedish Ballet School and in Russia. During my dancing career I progressed from the corps de ballet, to soloist, principal dancer and ballet master to artistic director of two major national ballet companies: English National Ballet and the Royal New Zealand Ballet. I am now a teacher, coach and consultant. Throughout my dancing years not only have I had to learn new skills and diversify, but also develop as a person, balancing my professional life with my equally demanding personal one. Now I am using what I learned to help others to deal with transition and change; to perform at a higher level; to evolve into the people they want to be; to gain inspiration driving them onwards; to find a sense of purpose and achieve success and fulfilment.
