Ring true. Resonate. Flow.
Hello, I’m Libby Davy.
I offer life, work and systems change coaching globally. If you know something is getting ready to emerge, get in touch to explore how we can support that, together.
Who do you work with?
Private individuals, teams and organisations. This includes leaders, young people, coaches, change agents, women, parents, couples and elders.
My clients are people who want to listen to their higher selves, emerge positively through challenging times, find new ways to share their gifts in service of themselves, others in their sphere and something greater.
They might feel complicit in broken systems that no longer serve their world, and sense there is structural and systems change needed – towards a new paradigm of existence. People who are curious about equality, fairness, social justice, diversity and inclusion on a very intimate, personal scale, and beyond.
Generally, they are people wanting to create positive change of any kind or scale – personal, organisation wide or systemic (see partial list below and praise). The micro and the macro views are both crucial to the wellbeing of all, and I like to be met by this balance.
From a parent in transition to a young person finding their way or a leader looking for more meaning – almost any situation can be supported by a depth of experience and flexible toolkit.
We also design and deliver coaching programmes and facilitate groups around a range of social and environmental agendas.
We recently founded Coaches for XR, with over 100 coaches volunteering at last count, to be extended to other climate emergency movements. Now we are being asked to design and deliver other pro-bono coaching programmes.
What do you offer?
More than just coaching, I offer a partnership in your process, which includes a deep toolkit.
My fees are on a sliding scale to be inclusive. An appropriate level of commitment is required for our work to be effective, which we can discuss openly when we talk for the first time, with no obligation to proceed.
I’m told I am a natural networker and my spirit animal is a bee! Our world-wide collective of resonant humans in most sectors and professionals is also available. We are a network of networks, fractally connecting for good.
(Book a chat to join the conversation about our change process consortium Wild Geese.)
I also offer facilitation, action learning, mentoring and strategic consultancy to design coaching, engagement and change systems. I’m one of the UK’s first certified facilitators of The 2030 SDGs Game – in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Awareness and consciousness are key, supported by transformational dialogue and reflecting on your own actions. I’m a grounded sounding board for you.
There’s a strong evidence-base to everything too – from a range of sciences, and your own direct experience. Rigour and intuition both matter in high level decision making, allowing your whole organism to be heard. We are not just heads on sticks right?
Almost no matter what the goals or context, significant progress happens when we listen to what wants to emerge and allow the natural process of growth to happen.
“Truly skilful, compassionate and wise. World class coaching.”
My clients learn to be and value who they truly are, while having authentic impact.
Limiting beliefs drop away and focus arises. We share surprisingly simple conversations and activities, yet change can happen within moments or months – during and between our interactions. Some choose to work together on and off over years.
Working within organisations, we move towards a reflective culture that enables effective action. All my work is informed by systemic, holistic approaches with a gender-lens and I have extensive ongoing training, accreditation and supervision.
Unlike therapy, we focus primarily on the present – looking ahead. Sometimes we link what’s showing up now with past patterns that are asking to shift. Transformation happens.
I hold this word “work” lightly, as often it can be like play, and mostly it flows easily and naturally, with discipline and good habits emerging. Blockages are noticed then our effective processes help clear them, or I can offer introductions to talented professionals across most modalities.
What inspires your practice?
My clients (and only offer to coach those I can truly get behind), ecological systems and the work of many, eg. Hetty Einzig (my supervisor), Joanna Macy, Anaïs Nin, Carl Rogers, Carl Jung, Charles Eisenstein, Suzi Gablik, Otto Scharmer, Paul Hawken, Rupert Sheldrake, Audre Lorde and Fred Laloux in particular.
What’s your story / background?
My first career was strategic stakeholder relations. After setting up several consultancies and working across most sectors , I was offered tenure in a leading business school by the age of 26. “Soul-lag” paved the way for an early ‘mid-life’ crisis and decades of healing and growth, which I can now share from a life well lived. Have worked cradle to grave on projects across most sectors with a local and global focus. Lots of big names I could mention. My CV is unusual, giving me unique perspectives – mainstream, alternative and complementary. See About for more.
“Insightful. Empowering. Naturally gifted at drawing people out.”
