I’m a trauma-informed coach and art therapist and weave creative processes into my coaching. My previous career in consulting and marketing informs how I relate to my clients and their work environments, and I find profound joy in blending my diverse skills and experiences in my therapy & coaching practice Sensemaking Space. I am qualified to work with my clients on a coaching-therapy continuum, which lets us safely explore recurring emotional or behavioural patterns.
Creativity has energised me all my life, and my approach to working with the Map of Meaning is shaped by this. I invite creative processes which require no artistic skills, prior experience or ‘talent’; I value how a creative inquiry can take us deeper and offer fresh insights into how we work, what sustains us and what erodes our emotional and mental wellbeing.
Beyond working with the Map, I’m also fascinated by neuroscience and how our nervous system is shaped by our lived experience. This influences our stress response, (work) relationships and how we can be ourselves at work. I feel compelled to contribute to trauma-sensitive and safe environments where people can flourish
