About me

I work with busy people who have begun to feel overwhelmed, are wondering what it is all about and are starting to wish they could escape. If this is you then I can help you to reduce your stress, regain your self-belief, feel re-energised, work out how you can enjoy a balanced life and start to feel a whole lot happier.

I help you to see the wood for the trees and make changes so you can have a more fulfilled life.

Together we find real, tangible solutions – helping you to change your mindset and/or your circumstances.

I can help you if you are:

  • Feeling stressed and overwhelmed
  • Wondering “is this it” or “what’s next”
  • Procrastinating, doubting yourself and not knowing where to start
  • Struggling with too many things to do and not enough time
  • Feeling lost
  • Wanting to get away from it all
  • Telling yourself you “should” be happy, but not actually feeling it
  • Wanting to do something different – but not knowing what

I work with clients from across the UK and from around the World – often working over the telephone or via Skype.

My coaching style is results-oriented, fun, supportive and direct.  I utilise a range of skills to help you, including coaching, NLP, mindfulness and counselling – together we find out what will work for you.

I offer you real solutions - I don’t help you find your inner child – I help you find a better life.

A few things about me (to help you know who I am!):

  • I have come to coaching and mindfulness training following a long career in Human Resources, in which I worked my way up to HR Director level. I have personal experience of the pressures, and joys, of a senior business role, and have worked as colleague, HR support and coach to some high performing board, executive and senior management teams.
  • I restrict the number of clients I work with so I can always be at my best for them - and I don't work with everyone, only those who are really committed to making the changes they want.
  • I have a dog and a cat (they don't participate in coaching sessions)!
  • I am not particularly spiritual but frequently find myself at York Minster (as my partner works there as part of their skilled stonemasonry and conservation team).
  • I do mindfulness meditation for around 10 minutes most days (sometimes longer, sometimes not at all) - every little helps, and even a little makes a big difference to improving focus, performance, stress management...
  • My favourite cocktail is an Old Fashioned.
  • I have a strong interest in psychology and neuroscience - particularly focussed on how we can get our minds to work their best and how we can be happy.
  • I have my own coach - because having a coach is great!
