coaching - a-n The Artists Information Company
How do I, as coach, get to the heart of the matter? How do we, as humans, work out our true purpose? Big questions that deserve big thinking, for my own life as well as for every client I work […]
It’s been a few months since my last blog and I’m happy to say that I’m keeping with and loving coaching as part of my professional life. Not only is it incredibly satisfying. There’s a real purpose behind each and […]

Hellooooooo (I meant to put that many “o’s” by the way and in my head sounded quite like Mrs Bucket (Bouquet), if you don’t know who that is shame on you). So I have no written for quite a while […]

Since attending the RD1st coaching training course this summer – funded by and with a bursary from a-n – I have been developing my coaching practice. I completed my first 25 hours of coaching, working with a mixture of people […]
