I’ve worked for more than 20 years as a university lecturer, mentor, writer, editor, coach and study skills consultant – and developed a fascination with the role of motivation in teaching and learning. For the last decade, I’ve taught social sciences at the Open University and devise and lead workshops for personal and professional development in educational, community and corporate settings.
In 2008, I launched my own coaching and decluttering business, and am now proud to be a leading member of apdo-uk, the Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers.
My qualifications include an MA (Hons.) in politics, philosophy and economics from Oxford University and a postgraduate certificate in academic practice from the Open University. I’ve studied in Paris, Jerusalem and Cairo, and am now a fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy. I also trained as a certified co-active professional coach (CPCC) at the Coaches Training Institute (CTI), accredited by the International Coach Federation.
For the last 15 years, I’ve learned to not only live but also to thrive with Charcot-Marie-Tooth, and regularly speak to support groups about the importance of decluttering limiting beliefs about disability. :
