Coaching


Work with Me

In my work I have been intrigued and stimulated to explore the body in motion and in relationship, the art of presence, and performance as a practice. A deep fascination and curiosity regarding the aspects and dimensions of character, and the evolution of identity has drawn me to work with a rich diversity of people in a myriad of contexts. I am passionate about the creation of art, strong communication and healthy relationships, leadership, and the architecture required to build pioneering actions and movements within the greater culture.

The coaching work I do is often one-to-one, though I also work with group dynamics within organisations. Each program is designed to cater to the specific needs of the individual or group. The number of sessions vary depending on each situation, though I do recommend a series of sessions over a span of time to allow for a process to unfold.

Individuals may wish to develop a greater awareness of their body for health reasons or greater mobility, others may want to explore their performance or movement practice to start the wheels turning on the creation of a new piece of work. A company may aim to focus on communication or group dynamics, or they may want to grow a new vision or mandate. Individuals or groups may seek direction to lead a public action or event. There are many ways that the art of performance, the study of personal and cultural mythology, and an attention to the body in relationship to site and duration can inspire growth, healing, and open the avenue into new territory.
