The Butterfly Defect

Today is a big day for me.

For the last twenty-something years I have been a caterpillar, diligently chomping my way through the leaves in the corporate garden. Some of these leaves were tasty and most provided me with valuable nutrients for growth, and the garden was a thriving, sunny place to explore.

But eventually some of the leaves began to taste bitter and the garden became darker and more threatening. It was time for me to say goodbye to my caterpillar days and begin my transformation into a glorious butterfly able to escape the confines of the garden and spread magic!

Within my cocoon I have reconnected to what is important to me, I have focused on my passions and my purpose, and I have put into effect the necessary changes.

And now I am ready to emerge. Not as a butterfly (because plans change), but as a magnificent Orange Owl!

As the founder of Orange Owl Coaching, I help frustrated, confused and dispirited warriors to win their battles by working with them on priorities, options and actions. I provide coaching and training programmes that are focused on wellbeing and personal development to professionals, educators, students and parents.
