About me

I'm a life coach and happiness advocate; I love helping people to discover their own uniqueness, recognise their strengths and explore how to love and to be themselves. As Oscar Wilde said, “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”

I describe coaching as ‘a conversation with you at its heart.’ A coaching conversation creates a safe space for you to speak freely, to be truly heard and to develop an understanding and appreciation of yourself.

My wish for my clients is for them to love themselves and to feel happy and fulfilled every day. Afterall, "Happiness is an inside job." according to William Arthur Ward.

I help self-confessed perfectionists who’ve recognised that their perfectionist approach is hindering them from enjoying life in the here and now.

Perfectionists tend to worry about how to meet their own impossibly high standards and as a result often procrastinate, resulting in indecision and inaction. Our work together enables my perfectionist clients to accept that good enough IS good enough, which in turn results in improved focus on the task in hand, a rewarding sense of achievement and increased self-confidence in getting things done. A phrase I like to use instead of 'good enough' is 'perfectly good'.

For people who describe themselves as ‘people pleasers’, I help them to start putting themselves first, to set healthy boundaries, learn how to say ‘no’ graciously and create new self-care habits.

If you're wondering whether I'm the right coach for you, please contact me to arrange a free 30-minute Discovery Call so we can find out about each other and decide from there whether we're a good fit to work together.
