I work in 3 fields:

Counselling, Coaching, Craniosacral therapy

A third of my time is spent coaching people in their journey to positive presence and wellbeing to get to know more deeply and with enjoyment, the inner sense of self

A third working with people therapeutically to release somatic tensions that have become obstacles to that inner confidence and personal leadership

For the past year half time co-director for my son's business Moorcraft Flooring Co, (mostly financial and personnel). I've just returned from a wonderful week in Devon that included a site visit to St Mellion Golf Club where our team is laying a beautiful maple dance floor and an oak floor to the new brasserie.

All the time in between exploring how best I can co-create the kind of society I want to live

"A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." Einstein

On Leadership:

The success of any enterprise, to the daily experience of staff and clients, is the product of the state of mind of those in leadership.

Resonant Leadership

I work with people who are developing and refining the qualities of leadership, presence, authenticity and health.

Recent testimonial:

Jana is a wise and effective coach whom I recommend without hesitation. She had the intuition to elicit useful and relevant information from me, and the memory, wit and judgment to transform it into helpful points of contemplation. You can sense years of relevant experience feeding into her work; after only three sessions she bequeathed to me several new trains of thought which have made a clear and positive difference to my current project.

Coaching for the body

Born in Hertford, childhood in Welwyn Garden City, adult life in Devon, Cornwall, Brittany and since 2003, London. Well travelled in detail rather than broad brush. A special interest in philosophy. A tendency to stand up and be counted.

Cultural influences: Manx Celt story tellers ▪ a Romanian gypsy ▪ an Anglo Saxon aristocrat from the wrong side of the blanket ▪ Norfolk soap box proletarians and conscientious objectors

In the 80s and 90s I created and managed a healthcare business, learning and practicing the art of leadership.

I like the theoretical model of Goleman, Boyatzis and McKee towards the development of resonant leadership. In balancing the qualities of leadership we develop the fluidity to move authentically into the moment with respect, dignity and appropriateness. Goleman is known for his work on Emotional Intelligence.

I have trainings in coaching, business and economics, person-centred therapy, anatomy and physiology; special interest in neurology and theoretical psychology.

I am experienced in creative, social-relational and business-organizational networks.

I'm passionate about our human potential and forgiving of our human failings.


Some ideas for emotion coaching with children

Human Emotions Thesaurus link: Human Emotions Thesaurus

Health, emotional and physical, is an ongoing process of a body being a body. What can hinder health is the mind preventing the body from doing what bodies do. If we don't like a sensation, call it discomfort or pain, contract around it, ignore it... the body systems are not assisted to maintain health. Relaxing deeply into your body brings you more in touch with the full sense of self. The resulting awareness and presence brings clarity and authenticity to your personal and business relationships.

I'm involved in re-weaving the fabric of self and society and have some new projects with this particular aim in mind.

Self - totality of inner experience, some of which is conscious. Bringing attention to the flow of inner states we can become aware of what has previously been a sub or unconscious driver of behaviour. Present in the whole of experience there is awareness of shifting qualities, sensations, impressions, relating to physiological processes, to the quality of attention and to the world around us; Presence!
