About Mary

I have run my own coaching and facilitation practice for 25 years and I truly love helping people work out how to thrive, rather than just survive, in our dynamic, challenging and VUCA world of work and play.

I am a Professional Certified Coach ('PCC') with the International Coaching Federation (‘ICF’), having trained with the Coaches Training Institute (‘CTI’) in 2006-2007 and I have a Masters in Human Resources Development.

I originally trained as an Action Learning Set Facilitator with 3D Coaching in 2011 and have this year trained as a Virtual Action Learning Facilitator with the Action Learning Centre

I facilitate Action Learning Sets for Lloyds and PwC sponsored programmes for the School for Social Entrepreneurs, based in Bristol.

I am currently a UK licencee of the Business Owners Programme developed by McKenna Smith Wessex.

In 1990, I co-founded the Passport Programme with Janie Wilson - a course enabling individuals to manage change and career transition, and which we ran for 15 years.  I was part of the Framework consultancy group for 5 years, working with third sector and public sector organisations.  Prior to that, I ran all the internal training within the HQ of Save the Children, London, for 3 years.

One of the highlights of my week is my choir rehearsals; I also love walking our 2 labradors - especially now that both of our kids have left home. I am a trustee of Tewma - http://temwa.org - a small charity based in Bristol and which supports the very isolated and hard-to-reach communities of Northern Malawi to develop more resilient lives.
