I work with motivated individuals who want to move ahead in their lives. Maybe there is a sense of being stuck or dissatisfied, but you are unsure about where to go? Maybe you have a sense of where you might go, or where you might make improvements in your life, but need support to get into action.

My particular expertise is in working with people:

  • dealing with life transitions: dealing with or seeking change in work, relationships, and life style
  • seeking new directions: in career, study, life direction
  • dealing with stress, insomnia, illness and physical challenges, recovery and rehabilitation
  • wanting to establish healthier ways of living.

Is it time to move on? Is the course you were on is just not working anymore? Is some challenge you need to work through: career change, illness, relationship change? Positive Edge Coaching can help.

This includes providing management training in areas such as visioning and planning, conflict management, development of committee and professional competency profiles, and stress management.

I use the Appreciative Inquiry approach to creating compelling, values-based visions that draw organizations toward their potential.

I have worked as a consultant, project manager, trainer, board member and leader in a range of organizations, including, among many:

  • the North American Feldenkrais Training and Accreditation Board, the Australian Feldenkrais Guild and the International Feldenkrais Federation
