Facilitation mentoring and consultancy
I trained as a forum facilitator over 10yrs ago with Cardboard Citizens and in other techniques arts organisations (Ovalhouse, Paddington Arts), before working with communities across London. I went on to design new programmes for The Children Society which had personal development and change theory at their core. I have since trained in coaching, organisational planning and facilitate a range of workshops.I enjoy leading conversations with staff, developing new long term projects and approaches new thinking at away days.
