Mary’s approach to coaching is supportive, client-centred and focused on enabling personal and professional change. In particular, Mary believes that coaching has an invaluable role to play when people are feeling lost and unsure about the best next step.

Coaching is also about the power of story for Mary; understanding, telling and directing one’s own, and inspiring others as a leader.

“It is easy to become stuck in your own story and for that to inhibit growth and change. I work with leaders, teams and organisations using narrative techniques to help them communicate clearly and authentically to external and internal audiences, in the public and private sector. ”

Mary believes in the power of team coaching:

“Working with teams is also a great passion of mine, something that I really enjoy – creating a reflective space for better thinking and decision making and creating awareness as a catalyst for change.”

Mary also draws on her experience as a creative in her work with clients:

“I love working creatively helping clients to bring fresh thinking to their situation and exploring growth areas that will deliver sustained results in their unique context.”

For the leadership challenges the future will bring, Mary anticipates supporting clients and teams to thrive through change.

“In the coming years the challenge will be to build collaborative, inclusive teams and to create a culture of innovation.”
