Keen to quickly get to the heart of each individual's specific career issues, her philosophy and approach is ‘to enable people to evaluate, understand and maximise their personal resources and the opportunities around them, in order to gain greater fulfilment in their work and life experiences’.

She has developed and delivered workshops to enhance work relationships for a variety of business sectors across the UK, mainland Europe and the Middle East. These include commercial organisations as well as the voluntary and public sectors.
