Wendy is a consultant and coach with global experience creating safe and engaging spaces where conversations that matter can take place. Improved performance for individuals, teams and organizations inevitably results when both intellectual and emotional aspects of change and relationships are explored. Through questioning assumptions and beliefs, Wendy turns system traps (both personal and organizational) into opportunities.
She offers one-one-one coaching/consulting, lunch & learn chats and workshops on:
- The role of risk taking in paradigm shifts
- Coping with uncertainty
- Turning insight into action
- Brain science – ways to re-route ruts and the science of change
- Expanding perception
- Taming anxiety
- Awakening the right side of the brain, and getting the left side on board
- Acclimation to a new culture for executives and their families
- Re-authoring a life’s path
She is best known for asking questions that open doors in perception and building bridges between paradoxical ideas and people held in a pattern of friction.
Wendy holds an MA and advanced diploma in Psychology, BBA in International Business and Marketing and has completed extensive training in coaching, Imagework facilitation, cognitive behavioural therapy, Gestalt and Jungian psychology. As a practicing psychotherapist she is able to recognize and loosen deeply held patterns and stifling belief systems to allow for a more creative flow. She is certified by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
In addition to my offer to coach/psychotherapize in companies, my friend Ellen and I are combining forces to offer workshops on stress
