I am pleased to offer and deliver consultancy and Mental Wellbeing Impact Assessment to promote and protect the health and wellbeing of people, communities, business and organisations. I have worked with people at local, national and international levels on small and medium scale projects or commissions. I can bring in associates with complementary skills if required.
I originally trained as a nurse working in both acute and community settings. I have a long history of working with the NHS and Local Government in various health promoting or policy roles. I have a Masters degree in health and social policy; training in alternative health practices and am trained as Business and Personal Coach, as well as a Coaching Skills for Parenting the next generation.
From 2005 - 2016 I was a Director of Inukshuk Consultancy - my co-owned health consultancy. We grew to become highly respected for our work on public and mental health, policy development, project management, evaluation in a wide variety of settings including charities, voluntary sector and organisations. All good things have their time and now I'm standing on my own two feet having closed the company for new pastures.
I believe my qualifications and rich experience have given me a richly diverse, strong understanding and a theoretical and practical knowledge and skills base in health and wellbeing interventions and evaluation.
I have a range of values which inform my work, including a strong belief in individual and groups achieving their full potential, fairness and justice and being in integrity in my work.
I care passionately about supporting parents and those working with children to enable them to give our children the very best start in life that is possible. Bringing up children in today’s world is challenging for any parent, not to mention balancing the other demands placed on us including working hours, peer pressure, social media and trying to have our own needs met.
I enjoy life in Hampshire supporting environmental conservation work; cycling the lanes; arts and live music; pilates and yoga. Not to mention travel and developing my understanding of indigenous people's connection with spirit, shamanism and the land.
I always have the sense that you will do the thing that you think is right and best and its something that I hold great store by." Tony Coggins, former Head of Mental Health Promotion, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust .
