Compassion is a powerful catalyst for change...
It is hard being human. We have a tendency to judge ourselves and each other as we are threat-based creatures constantly scanning to see if we are valued and accepted ‘by the tribe’. In the early days at Frameworks 4 Change, we worked with organisations on culture change and we had some good results. However, as we have reflected on the human predicament we have come to the view that when compassion becomes central to an organisations way of being, understanding can grow and people discover themselves becoming kinder and loving, more tolerant, forgiving and patient.
Life Changing seminars
It is hard being human but there is such tremendous wealth to be found in authentic caring relationships. We are social animals and we are wired for connection. I love presenting on the life-changing power of the shift from fear to love.
Next Level Consulting
I so love to work with health and care organisations who have a vision for taking their work and their impact in the world to the next level. In my experience this shift is best achieved through subtle shifts in awareness – someone described my approach to work with organisations as a bit like organisational acupuncture!
New Story Coaching
coaching is offered to leaders with a vision for changing paradigms and finding balance for themselves and those who work in the health and care organisations and businesses they help to lead. My preference is for walking together 4 – 6 times as this enables the shift to be embodied as the new story takes shape.
I love to create the conditions in which events related to health and care are transformative – I am conscious of the power of hospitality and of skilful facilitation. Presenters shift from sage on the stage to guide by the side and the space is designed to integrate contemplation with commitment to action.
The focus on the people that we care for was refreshing and insightful and has had a profound effect upon my outlook to the work that I do and the way that I will approach others in the future.
This has been a REAL HUMAN EXPERIENCE for me on a huge level and I am determined that my darkness will turn to a sense of enlightenment.

I have found the New Story Coaching sessions with Andy to be one of the most valuable experiences of my life at a time when it was most needed. Andy's warm, generous nature and his unique ability to hold a space for me to get clear on who I am and what I offer has been transformational.
