Bethan works with us as an associate. She has a PGC in Local Government Management, a BA in Psychology (1st Class Hons, British Psychological Society Best Degree Award), Essential Coaching Skills (Postgraduate Level) anmd Association of Project Management Professional Certificate.
She is also bilingual in Welsh and English.
Bethan has worked across a range of environmental and community projects as a researcher, fundraiser, strategy developer and facilitator. She believes strongly in localism and the power of communities working across a long front to achieve widespread positive change. She is currently part of a team pioneering community-led approaches to reversing habitat fragmentation in North West Wales, developing methods which are being taken up nationally and internationally.
Bethan emphasises respect, engagement and healthy relationships as a precursor to action and has a skill for translating dreams and ambitions into practical possibilities. She uses coaching and facilitation processes to drill down into the essence of the changes communities want to experience.
Through her Psychology degree and subsequent projects, Bethan has developed an expertise in research methods and a geeky love of data and analysis. She lead a team modelling fuel poverty on the Llyn Peninsular whose work generated a raft of subsequent projects to strengthen local resilience in a unique and remote community.
Bethan lives in the Eryri National Park with her extended family and enjoys adventures in the wilderness, singing and child-led learning.
