Taking the Clifton StrengthsFinders assessment was lifechanging for me, as it helped to uncover who I truly am, while revealing that the Strengths I was trying to present, were in fact my weaknesses.

I am fascinated with what makes each individual tick, beyond their conditioning and experiences in life. I gain great satisfaction in assisting others to find and grow their strands of Strength muscle.

Having grown up in a multicultural environment in London, and having lived in India for seven years, I have a good understanding of different cultural backgrounds.

I am open to working with all and am particularly interested in working in sport and with those that have been through trauma of any sort, whether individually, in partnerships or in teams.

"To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified."
Isaiah 61:3
