I am a mindful leadership advisor, executive coach, mindfulness & meditation teacher, author and public speaker. I am a member of North of Neutraland the Co-Founder of Profuse29 (www.profuse29.com) which introduces mindfulness and mindful leadership to organisations and individuals. My first book The Authority Guide To Mindful Leadership was published in April 2017. In addition to that I am trained as a Reiki and Sound Medicine practitioner.
I offer meditation and mindfulness as a way to hack your neurobiology and increase self-awareness, which is the first step to self-mastery. My aim is to empower my clients to live with more presence, inner peace, gratitude and love for life - I teach with passion, sensitivity and insight, gained from years of personal practice and professional training. My clients include CEOs, creatives, philanthropists, global multinationals and start-ups.
In addition my volunteering work at St Joseph´s Hospice and Mind Charity gives me a unique perspective on living life right NOW with a sense of urgency and meaning.
As I care deeply about the transformational power of mindfulness practice, I feel grateful to be frequently asked to speak about mindfulness in the workplace and mindful living. I have recently been hosted by the London School of Economics, The British Fashion Trust, The Fiorucci Art Trust, Second Home, The Devonshire Club, The Ned and The Soho House Group.
Before making my passion my profession in 2014, I was trained as a lawyer, spent some time in strategy consulting and worked ten years as a board-level executive search consultant (Principal level) with two of the world’s leading executive search firms Heidrick & Struggles and Korn/Ferry International in Europe and Asia.
I have over a decade´s worth of experience in advising and coaching top CEO´s, boards and investors on senior leadership and people issues.
I was initially introduced to yoga 20 years ago and deepened my meditation and mindfulness practice while living in Asia. Mindfulness helped me to remain calm, focused and happy while juggling a demanding and hectic global 24/7 schedule as a board-level headhunter.
This inspired me to create a business that combines coaching and meditative wisdom and techniques to empower CEOs, founders, emerging leaders and high potentials to access their full potential even or particularly when under pressure. As a result I embarked on a 2 year part-time BWY certified yoga and meditation teacher training (at Triyoga, the UK’s leading Teacher Training programme) while still working full-time as a junior partner in a global executive search firm. I subsequently also qualified as a certified Mindfulness-based Awareness Coach (recognised by the Association for Coaching) and Mindfulness-based Interventions Teacher (MITT) after Jon Kabat-Zinn (recognised by the UK Mindfulness Teacher Trainer Network). I also attended courses in positive psychology, the science of happiness and neuroscience. I also took part in a 6 months global research project into fundamental wellbeing (Sofia University). In addition to that I trained as a Reiki practitioner (Reiki Academy London) and trained as a practitioner in Sound Medicine - Quantum Alchemy Crystal Bowls (with Yantara Jiro). Over the past four years I have introduced meditation to start-ups, global multinationals, creative businesses and the government. In addition I have used mindfulness and meditation to help C-Suite individuals, high-net-worth individuals, philanthropsist, professionals, investors and start-up founders to access more of their leadership potential, build resilience and creative genius.
