Hi, I’m Jacqui. I’m a facilitator of change.
I work with self-aware humans, teams and leaders who are in the process of transition, reinvention, transformation.
Overcoming our struggles and efforting.
Using what we’ve ‘endured’ in our lives, the hard stuff and ‘contrast’ we’ve experienced, as rocket-fuel for creating something defiantly glorious and purposeful.
We are always in flow, change is always happening.
Without deliberate attention and intention towards what we’re creating, we will create by default, and end up with more of the same.
Right now, a new approach is required, one that brings us back into balance with kinder, more human ways to relate, with ourselves, with others, with our world.
For a long time, we have been conditioned to believe in the value of logic, reason, effort, force (making things happen) and endurance. In us as separate from the world around us.
The conversations I facilitate are rooted in the premise of bringing things back into balance - by standing firmly in the world view that it is time for us to make greater room for our natural rhythms and cycles, rest, empathy, mystery and a different kind of power (allowing, receiving).
Show up Shamelessly.
Shame (the ‘not enough’ epidemic) shows up as perfectionism, over-achieving, people-pleasing, playing small, hiding, making up what others are thinking and feeling flat and uninspired.
In workplaces it shows up as blame, comparison, conflict or tough-conversation-avoiding, clumsy and harmful feedback practices, and a disengaged workforce.
You may see high stress and burnout, poor performance and low job satisfaction, a lack of trust between staff and managers, and high turnover of staff.
I support dynamic, compassionate people as they step into a bigger personal or professional space with powerful presence, alignment, creativity, joy and compassion.
I’m a coach, mentor and psychologist, and my work draws on positive psychology, neuroscience, and grounded theory research into shame, resilience, wellbeing and human connection. I add a sprinkling of magic, drawing on nature and the unconscious as places to guide our inspiration.
You can change things.
I will help.
