There is a growing awareness within the field of coaching that simply to have been trained as a coach is insufficient. My psychological training enables me to have deeper understanding of underlying dynamics, systems and processes and a greater range of resources and insights to support the work.

Organisational development is about working with the potential of organisations to work to their optimum capacity. It is about working with the whole system to achieve shared visions and goals in a way which results in greater effectiveness of the organisation. It is about individuals in the organisation problem solving, learning new techniques and skills, and creating an atmosphere of continuous improvement.
Organisational development contributes to the sustained health and effectiveness of the organisation .It is planned and systematic in focus while taking into account the whole organisation. It works to align different activities, projects and initiatives, involves individuals and groups to maximise ownership, engagement and contribution.
