About Shirley

I have 30 year's experience in HR, OD and leadership development, latterly in regional & global roles. Supporting leaders with the people and change aspects of their strategy development or execution.

Introduced coaching and mentoring training to senior and middle managers, to enable culture change and enhance their capacity to fulfil their roles and embody the change they are seeking for their organisations.

A graduate of the Coaching Supervision Academy accredited diploma course. I subscribe to the EMCC's Code of Ethics.

People who are interested in working or developing their somatic awareness and/or intuition find their way to me. I practice many of the techniques of Wendy Palmers Leadership Embodiment which teaches us how to stay centred and calm in the face of resistance. I practice mindfulness and feldenkrais daily to help me learn to be ever increasingly aware of somatic/bodywork data for those who find this source of information helpful.

My company's clients,, are dotted around the globe working as leaders who coach as part of their role or as coaches in professional practice.

Shirley is our AOCS contact in Austria and Switzerland, Czech and Slovak republics, so do contact her for any enquiries in these countries.
