About me

Who says you can't have a successful career,  juggle all the other elements in life and find time for your own wellbeing?  It's never easy, but I promise you have the resilience and resources within to make it happen. 

I support leaders to thrive by balancing a successful career with a purposeful, happy, healthy lifestyle.   

With experience in restaurant and hotel operational management, for the last 25 years, I have specialised in supporting others learning and personal development in both restaurants and retail.

As a coach, I work with leaders at all levels, who are looking to achieve a healthy balance in their busy lives and live the life they want to live! 

I have personal experiences through divorce and leaving a long term position at work whereby my life has been completely out of balance.  On both occasions, I was living a life that was great for others but not for me. I was hanging onto something that used to make me happy and it took a long time and a final trigger to make me realise I needed to make some changes.  

I felt unfulfilled, lacked purpose yet worked really hard to make it work for the benefit of others alongside a belief that I needed to earn a certain salary to enable me to do the things that I thought made me happy.  This led to a level of burnout and I’ve therefore had to make some tough decisions and equip myself with various tools and techniques to find the courage to walk away.  I then worked on finding a better balance resulting in a happier, healthy life for me.   

We all need support sometimes, coaching is the first courageous step to awakening our true potential and living the life we love!

Imagine time for just you, a safe space where you feel comfortable and confident to be your true self.  Where there is no need to filter anything you say and where your emotions can ebb over.   A space where you can revisit what is vital to you and the people who are most important to you.   A chance to reset and clarify your purpose, recharge and work through your barriers to achieve a healthy, happy balance in all areas of your life.

Should you choose to work with me, your coaching journey starts by looking at various elements of your life, identifying what makes you happy and what drains you.  We'll then work on clarifying your purpose, what you want from life, with whom and address any barriers that may be holding you back.  I take a holistic approach with my clients, by understanding all aspects of wellness and how they interact and impact each other including; purpose and meaning, physical and mental health, diet, exercise, sleep and relationships.  

You deserve to live your best life, for you, no one else and you have the resources within to achieve just that!
