I am a Cross Cultural Psychologist (D.Phil Sussex University) and I have worked with people on the challenges of identity, fairness, and culture for many years. It became evident that these topics affected people in their professional and personal lives and to talk about them in a safe place is key to a better, communal world.

That world is an uncertain and volatile yet beautiful place and can be a challenge to navigate. I help people negotiate these challenges through an exploration with curiosity and a strategic and systemic analytical approach. 

Over a period of 25 years I have worked for one of the most diverse universities in the United Kingdom, as a Research Fellow for the HR department at the Open University, in the recruitment department for Shell International in London and as a recruiter for Randstad, Atlanta, USA. I have published academic articles and chapters in edited books and I write novels about maverick people facing adversity.

The above, however, did not teach me as much as life itself, such as living abroad, extensive travel, the dealing with grief, engaging  in voluntary work and being a part of a ‘modern’ family.

In this complex, globalised environment, we are juggling and trying to make sense of information, views, experience and (immediate) crises. With me as your guide, we can talk about where you came from and where you’re heading by defining not what success is but what mastery means.
