Heather is a registered member of the UKCP and the BACP. She is a Trainer, Study Tutor, Academic Tutor and RD facilitator at the Trust, and undertook her training here.
After studying history at Cambridge University, Heather worked at a senior level in the NHS and in international development, where she developed a particular interest in the collective, relational leadership we need to survive and thrive in our volatile, complex world. Subsequently, Heather studied at the Centre for Leadership Studies at Exeter University.
Heather says: "There is a strong, shared underpinning between psychosynthesis and the transformational leadership approaches that organisations across all sectors are focusing on today. This includes the need to deepen our sense of Self so that we have a solid anchor in our uncertain world. There is also a shared need to value everybody’s diverse contributions - and practice empathy and good will towards ourselves and others - so that, ultimately, the solutions to the world’s challenges can be just, and nobody gets left behind."
As well as practicing as a psychotherapist Heather works in leadership development, with a particular focus on relational and shared leadership.
"At the Trust I deeply values the passion, resilience, kindness, and spirit of enquiry that students and colleagues demonstrate. I learn a tremendous amount from this and am proud to be part of this community."
