About me

Team work makes the dream work! 

The handsome old genuis Einstein is quoted as saying you can't solve a problem from the same thinking we used to create it.  Which basically makes we're ALL part of our own problem and working together helps us access new perspectives that help us create solutions.

I say that because so many people feel a bit embarrassed at the idea of asking for help...of hiring a coach.  Because in some way it shows they're not coping or strong enough.

Well, I'm here to say that's a pile of bullsugar....we're soooo much stronger when we work together.

The happiest and most successful people in the world embrace support and have coaches, not because anything is 'wrong', but because they want to squeeze every last bit of juice from this great lemon of life.

And that's what I do, I help people get unstuck (if you are) and make GREAT things happen in their life and work.

If you're curious and ready to make some changes in your life and want a supportive partner to be at your side, rooting for your success and ensuring you DO overcome those obstacles, then get in touch.

How the heck do you pick the 'right' coach?

I'm a big believer that you'll get the best results when you work with a coach you resonate with.

As such I recommend selecting a few coaches that appeal to you and doing a bit of friendly online stalking, sorry research, to get a feel for them.

Then reach out to the ones of your shortlist and find out more about working with them

Do you know what you want to get from working with a coach?

Trust yourself here and be honest. It may be you have a specific goal you want support with like leaving your current job and starting up a business, managing the transition back to work after having kids or to rediscover your mojo.

Or it may be, you've not got anything in particular but are drawn to personal development, want to be the best human you can be and want to be around a 'positive' energy.

Being clear on this will help you make a decision.  This will influence the length of time that will be useful for you to work with a coach to the energy and expertise of the coach you hire.

Us coaches each work differently, with different styles, approaches, how long and where their sessions are so it's important to find one that's right for you.  One may be perfect for you now and then as you grow you'll find someone else's approach more useful. 

Personally, I've got a therapeutic & blended coaching approach. This means I work with all of may want support to start that business but life's curveballs get in the way and you're a hot mess for a while. That's ok. When we work together, I AM your supportive partner and I've got your back. I hold the space for you to tap into and trust your own answers, and if appropriate I weave some mentoring in there too.

Our only limitation is our imagination and determination and when we stop taking life so seriously, great things happen.
