Silvia Latham, PhD is an anthropologist. She worked as a motivational and therapeutic transformative coach and managing director of Silvia Latham Consultancy from 2006 to 2019 in London and in Italy.

Silvia's profound nature is that of an explorer and researcher. Silvia has travelled the world extensively and has made sure that wherever she lived her spirit and her being gained new and constructive experiences. Her infectious optimism, her intuitive talents and warmth, together with simplicity, her ability to listen and to put people at ease, are a milestone in her professional career and private life.

Silvia's professional qualifications are diverse and prestigious and range from the anthropological, therapeutic and training fields of coaching. Silvia will soon conclude a course of study for environmental consultancy. Silvia has a Masters and a PhD in Social Anthropology. She has worked as an anthropologist in various international projects since the early 1990s. Her first research projects in Los Angeles, California, worked on issues related to Mexican-American identity, Chicanos political and cultural movements and immigration in Los Angeles (UCLA). In the late 1990s, Silvia conducted research based in Montreal, Canada on power and authority relations in work and school settings in Sardinia, Italy. Between 2001 and 2003 she worked on the European Union's Socrates-Minerva project.

She acquired Life Coaching Skills at Newcastle College, in the UK, and qualified as a Premier Practitioner in Neurolinguistic Programming (PNL) and New Code PNL with John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St. Clair and Michael Carrol. She became NLP Master Practitioner with Michael Carrol. With Robina Scott (PRH England) she has consolidated techniques of personal growth and human relations. She explored techniques of self-awareness and personal growth, including Buddhist meditation techniques and mindfulness of Thich Nhat Hanh, generative and transformative trance with Stephen Gilligan and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques).

Silvia's philosophy is simple and clear: persistence and determination combined with clarity of ideas and inner wisdom lead to positive results. In the last few years the need to explore and strengthen the symbiosis and coexistence of the human presence in the surrounding natural environment grew consistently in Silvia. Her goal is to work towards the achievement of congruency in line with the intrinsic connection between the human being and the nature.

It is becoming increasingly urgent to take responsibility for our presence in an eco-system on which our survival and personal growth depends.
