the messy coach | the messy PhD

Hello! I’m thrilled that you’re here.

So, you’re trying to do good research. Or pass your PhD. Or just get through the next week of research with a little more ease.
And sure, you’ve done all the training for ‘how to’ do your PhD. But what about all the other in-between, messy, ‘icky’ parts of doing research? When things go wrong, when you feel alone, or you just can’t find the motivation to write another damn word. #PhDLife can be a right mess.
This is where I can help you. I offer group training and 1:1 coaching to help you work through these messy parts of research, to find better strategies for working with greater ease, joy and clarity. I’m here to help you love your research and do the very best work you can be proud of.

Let’s get messy!
