She has been delivering Fresh Steps since 2008 and Springboard since 2004.

As a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner, Yvonne has enabled people to overcome such personal issues as a tendency to go red in meetings, phobias (of spiders and wasps, to give examples), and using easy ways to gain access to more positive emotions ,such as confidence, both in and out of work.

In her employed work, she is a Diversity Specialist, specialising in employment law, supporting under-represented groups within the organisation and developing a greater awareness of diversity issues within the organisation.
