Self-Reflection and Self-Awareness - in life and in writing

I have been working in the Adult Learning and Career Development sectors for more than 12 years, supporting people to grow and develop both personally and professionally. I have also worked in counselling settings with young people, adults and couples, as well as managing a mentoring project and undertaking academic proof-reading, and all these experiences inform my methods now. I blend a person-centred focus with a practical and structured approach to good effect. I believe that professional development goes hand-in-hand with increased understanding of self and others, also known as emotional intelligence. Understanding and valuing your own strengths and vulnerabilities helps you communicate more strongly and create more honest, productive relationships, both at home and at work, and can impact on your ability to make a convincing argument in written form as well. I am happy to meet you at your home, at my home or at another location convenient to us both, or we can work via webcam. I normally prepare tasks or concepts to consider between meetings, and always tailor the sessions to what you most need or want to get out of them. If you want a simple listening ear, that is fine - if you want someone to create a schedule to help you stick to goals, I can do that. We can decide between us what might best help you get where you want to in your life or career. The availability in the calendar below is just a guide, I can work around your schedule, so please feel free to ask about specific days or times.

About Me

I have had a fortunate career path that has taken me in a lot of different directions, all of which have added to the skills and knowledge I use now in supporting people with personal and professional development. I emigrated from the US to the UK in 1995 and have made my home mainly in Edinburgh since then, with two years in Bradford Yorkshire. I currently work across the central belt of Scotland, primarily as an Independent Practice Teacher, Assessor and Supervisor, with a bit of Family Group Decision Making work as well. Self-employment, and the ability to define my job as opportunities arise, suits me well! I have also previously been a family support worker, a mentoring project coordinator and a counsellor, also working for a time as a guard on the trains, which got me around a bit. You can say I am a Jack(ie) of All Trades in some ways, but over the years I have gained a level of expertise in one thing - personal development, and the journey of change. I work creatively, intuitively and sensitively to adapt to the needs of the person or people I am working with, let me know if you have an idea to explore!

Education

BA Anthropology (University of Utah), PGDip Forensic Anthropology (Bradford University), PGCert Counselling (Edinburgh University), Practice Teaching Award (SSSC Learning Network East), SVQ III Children and Young People (Stevenson College), Family Group Decision Making (KALM Solutions)

Experience / Qualifications

Training or research in: evaluation methods, evidence-based practice, presentation skills, group work and group dynanmics, Advocacy - as as you can see from the photo below, I was nominated for Scottish Association of Social Workers Practice Teacher of the Year award!

Professor of Mathematics and Physics helps develop the potential of his students
The success of students and then of science students and the development of their potential is an objective that is close to my heart. The so-called hard sciences, such as mathematics and physics, although often judged difficult, are accessible to all by giving themselves the means and by persevering. It is important for me to share this knowledge and knowledge with others, in particular with high school students. I put the student at the heart of my concerns and the support I provide goes in the direction of the teachers. I have 7 years of experience as an engineer. I worked in the risk studies of industrial systems in large automobile and rail groups. I have skills in life coaching and I am certified as a master practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). I am bilingual French and English. My experience as a teacher is 5 years of math and physics lessons. Given the current context, I also offer distance courses via the Google meet application. Feel free to contact me for more details.

English Course Which Will Make You More Desirable to Employers
If you have ambitions to become an international businessperson, it’s essential that you’re able to speak English fluently. Even if you’re not thinking of living and working abroad, that doesn’t mean you won’t find English a helpful language to put on your CV. There may well be plenty of English-speaking multinational corporations with offices in your home country. What’s more, careers that involve lots of travel or international exposure, use English as their official language, and many employers in these sectors are likely to require evidence of a certain level of proficiency in English before they will consider employing you. This means that if you can speak English, you’ll find that you have a greater number of possible careers to choose from. Have I convinced you yet? If you’ve been inspired to learn English, consider enrolling in my course!
