About me

Come as you are

You're not quite sure what you want right now, yet you know that something has to change. You've lost your spark, your motivation and not really looking after yourself properly. There's a disconnect somewhere because you usually feel a sense of balance, engaged in your life and work, and are generally quite mindful of taking care of your wellbeing despite your demanding schedule and feeling stressed at times.

I'm an experienced Wellbeing Coach and Chartered Psychologist, and I have been on this journey too; you are not alone. Many of my clients, ambitious professionals and entrepreneurs, feel this way at the start. Could you do with some space to think and talk things through?

Know that you can feel like yourself again. More balanced, on top of things, able to set healthier boundaries and habits, and engaged in meaningful activities. Personally, receiving coaching helped me to step into my courage and take the leap of faith to leave corporate life and embrace coaching life. I no longer shy away from living my purpose to listen deeply and support other people to feel empowered in making positive changes - both in their personal and professional life.

Our friends and family can be incredibly supportive and mean well, but they can also be our harshest critics, so talking to someone who cares about what you are going through outside your circle can be really helpful and feel deeply reassuring. Could you do with some support at the moment?

Take a moment to slow down from your busy schedule

Our candid coaching conversations offer an opportunity for you to feel seen, heard and understood. Making space for you to gain a better understanding of yourself, your current situation and where you want to be.

As a result, my clients experience greater: 

  • self-awareness
  • self-confidence
  • connection
  • self-care
  • sense of contentment
  • consistency in how they show up in life and work
  • sense of calm

They learn to prioritise wellbeing and purpose, taking meaningful steps to reach their goals. You, too, can lead a more balanced and fulfilling life that feels authentic.

All coaching sessions are confidential and take place online (or over the phone if you prefer). Consider me your thinking partner and sounding board.

What to expect in your discovery call

It takes a lot of courage to reach out for support. The next step is to book your discovery call with me in a calm and relaxed environment. We will explore what's going on for you at the moment and what you would like to achieve through coaching.

Let's get to know each other and see if we are a good fit to work together. I understand that you are always on the go, often rushing from meeting to meeting, so now is the time to book your discovery call and invite calm into your day: https://beyourowndate.com/book-a-discovery-call-for-online-wellbeing-coaching

I got you!

Member organisations

Other areas of coaching I deal with

I specialise in supporting you to take care of your holistic wellbeing and flourish with a person-centred approach. This includes tapping into your strengths and helping you to stay accountable. You may experience some uncomfortable feelings, but you will get through it with my support.

Wellbeing at work often comes up in coaching conversations. Supporting you to find calm productivity, focus and work smarter. Along with figuring out ways to navigate stress, conflict and career change mindfully. Sometimes, you may even be surprised by what you share and, equally, empowered by what you will do in response, deepening your self-awareness and personal development.

What will you do to support your wellbeing and self-care going forward?
