About Me


Beverley Kennedy

Director of B.E.V. Consulting T/A Engaging Dialogue

Are you at a point in your life where you are questioning, curious and wondering about your journey this far? Is it more confidence, meaningful connections, greater acceptance and purposeful work that perhaps you are pursuing? If these questions resonate with you, we can work together to enhance your personal and professional journey, through your personal ‘Beliefs, Empowerment & Vision’.

Communication is fundamental and important in every aspect of our life to get the message across. We know this to be true, but experience suggests that despite our ability to articulate well and have an excellent command of the language we speak, we often experience unintended outcomes. How did this happen? You wonder in disbelief!

Well…somewhere amidst the conversation exists the gap between our ‘intentions’ and the way the message is communicated and received. “I didn’t say that” or “I didn’t mean that” or “I can’t believe I said that “or “what I really meant”… sounds familiar? Now you’re left feeling misunderstood, not listened to, taken out of context, angry, or perhaps a bit of dysphoria.

As a practicing consultant, counsellor and coach, I assist individuals and groups to identify, challenge and become aware of their thoughts, beliefs and core values; build self-esteem and confidence; and focus on bringing ‘who they are to what they do”

Through my consulting and counselling practice, I invite you to ‘engage in dialogue’ to achieve an even greater meaningful and purposeful way of being.
