Amanda Yensa Manor

A colourful career in the creative industries, combined with a yoga and zen inspired life practice has shaped the liberating mentoring programmes I design and deliver to people in architecture, arts and wellness.


Having mentored hundreds over the years – in my leadership, brand, marketing and communications roles, as well as in my capacity as a practising mentor – I help create serene spacious change in clients’ work and personal lives.

An international upbringing and education means I am at home across cultures. NLP certified, and Reiki Level 2 certified, I use a blend of mentoring tools and techniques in every programme, workshop and session.


A dedicated yoga practitioner, published author, prolific poet, enthusiastic stone carver and sculptor, I also volunteer with the British Red Cross as a Refugee Project Grants Writer.
