What’s your background? (Coaching and otherwise)
Before becoming a coach I worked for 15 years in the visual and performing arts industries, always involved in projects that had educational, social and cultural aims. I loved that work, and at the same time, I could not see myself working under the levels of stress I was working under forever. Eleven years ago I decided to quit my job as the director of a contemporary dance festival in Barcelona, and with the support of my therapist, started to explore different avenues.
The roads took me to do a MBA with a minor in coaching and leadership, train as a coach with The Coaches Training Institute, and move to London with the intention to take my coaching to places where coaching was not easy to access. In the last 10 years, I have supported young leaders from disadvantage backgrounds, women affected by domestic violence, young people in prisons, children’s social workers and their managers, a leadership program with the MET police, and at the moment I am working on a mental health awareness project, taking open conversations about mental health to big companies.
What would you like people to know about your coaching?
As a coach, I want to create a safe space where people can talk about their wildest dreams, their deepest desires, and their darkest fears, as my own experience tells me that all of them are equally important to be able to live life fully.
What would you like people to know about you?
I grew up in Peru, and I have lived the last 24 years between London and Barcelona, where thirteen years ago I met Andy, my Mancunian partner whom I married last year.
