Mo new head shot

Mo Ford

Coach, Consultant and Performance Psychology Practitioner

As a coach and consultant, Mo offers teams and individuals a reflective space to explore their emotional world, become more grounded and feel safe enough to have difficult conversations. Mo combines her passion for, and experience in equalities work with her coaching skills to offer support in working out where to begin or how to get ‘unstuck’ in conversations about identity, power and relationships in the workplace.

Mo’s vision is to contribute to communities that foster mutuality, wholehearted communication, safety and creativity. Mo has a particular interest in workplace wellbeing, especially in the arts and performance industries and the third sector.

The connection to Oasis began a number of years ago and has deepened through Mo’s contributions to PeerWorks and as a participant on the Real Leaders and Coaching Programmes. Mo is a core contributor to the Oasis Diversity and Inclusion team.

Mo has seventeen years’ experience in the youth sector, supporting young people through traumatic experiences and leading teams in complex change processes. Her MSc in Childhood Studies provided a specific focus on ‘social, emotional and behavioural difficulties’ in education and the impact of this label on young people.

Mo has a background in singing and vocal performance. Her experiences and challenges as a young singer later led her to spend seven years training in a cutting-edge Performance Psychology approach that encompasses breath and body work, therapeutic voice work, psycho-education, trauma-informed practice and a relational, embodied approach to coaching. Mo’s practice supports both performers and other professionals to move past performance anxiety, to self-advocate and prioritise their wellbeing.
