I have over 15 years’ experience working in the field of mental health, In 2019, I decided to compliment this knowledge by studying for an MBA at Liverpool Business School, which has equipped me with the skills needed to launch an inspirational social enterprise, The First Person Project C.I.C. We offer our own brand of coaching - Mental Health Action Coaching
More than a decade of my career has been spent working as a Registered Mental Health Nurse in a variety of senior leadership and strategic management positions. I have experience across a range of public and private sector services across the whole of England, including work in specialist settings.
I have worked with highly complex populations of people in some of the most socially deprived areas in the country. I have managed large teams of multi-disciplines. I am a skilled coach with advanced qualifications in mental health, the philosophy of mental health and practice development. I am also a Neuro-Linguistic Programming Master Practitioner. I am a committed lifelong learner and I am always embarking on new developmental endevours.
As well as being an experienced leader of quality improvement projects, some of which have gained national praise, I have supported organisations with advice and consultancy to aid their practice. My consultancy work includes working as a Specialist Adviser to the Care Quality Commission, as well as Lead Reviewer with the Royal College of Psychiatrists Quality Network.
I am a published author credited with several publications, including personal development.
Using a blend of solution focused facilitation, critical thinking and action learning I can empower people to develop their own solutions for management of mental health.
Using a unique blend of coaching, cognitive behavioural approaches, neuro-linguistic programming and action learning I can help you reflect on your own context, develop solutions to manage your own mental health and improve your well-being.
Whatever your desired outcomes I am able to develop bespoke coaching based on solution-focused and critical thinking that will help you identify barriers to progression and develop strategies to overcome those barriers and achieve your goals.
