Hi, I’m Jessica, an Enneagram Type 7 (Enthusiastic Visionary) who believes the way to living an uncompromised life is through TRUTH - knowing it, living it and speaking it.
I spent more than 15 years in the field of Consumer Insights including a role as Consumer & Market Insight Director for Unilever, project leading Unilever’s Global Qualitative Research Accreditation Programme and since starting my own business over 7 years ago, running various qualitative research projects alongside my coaching and team facilitation practice.
A bit about me:
I’ve done the corporate thing, managed regional teams and traveled all over the world. So I know how stress shows up.
I’ve experienced chronic eczema, pneumonia, anxiety and shingles. My body makes it clear when I’m not living my truth.
I’m a complete glutton for books, essential oils and inspiring, conceptual, “I wonder why” conversations.
I love travel, a good coffee, living near the sea and anywhere introvert-friendly
I don’t do bored very well
Everyone has the potential to change - no person or situation is unchangeable, stuck or forever.
That uncovering our truth, and learning to speak it, is the biggest gift of freedom we can give to ourselves, and others
We have the ability to let go of what isn’t working - the emotions, beliefs or unconscious habits that hold us back.
Our bodies don’t lie - and when we tune into this wisdom, we know exactly what we need.
In living an uncompromised life - where we show up as our true selves. Always
My style is:
A combination of science and heart - I believe in research but also in intuition, used together for powerful results
Grounded & no-nonsense - I believe that we can only bring about change if we’re willing to speak the truth about the things that matter
Gentle & challenging - I believe in pushing people past their habitual levels of comfort but that it’s also possible to do so in a kind and supportive manner
Humorous & light-hearted - I believe that learning is made all the richer when we’re able to laugh at life, and ourselves
Whilst I completely understand the pressures of the corporate world and what it requires of us as individuals, coming back into that space, I now bring a very different perspective:
I help shine light on the truth so that we can have the conversations that matter
I steer clear of corporate jargon or fussy language, preferring to speak plainly, one human to another
I’m not part of the political agenda so can provide a grounded and truthful view
I know now that it’s the chemistry between people that matters more than the tasks we’re trying to deliver
Would you like to chat about how we can work together?
