About me

Helping those feeling burnt out, trapped and lonely re-discover their unique alignment blueprint so they can live a wildly successful and freedom-filled life…on their terms, without the stress.

Are you fed up with feeling restless, unhappy and frustrated? Like time is slipping away and you’re struggling with what to do next?

Are you sick and tired of waking up each day and going through the motions, when what you really want seems impossible right now?

Or have you suddenly found yourself dealing with an unexpected crisis or trauma and don't know which way to turn?

Very often when we are plunged into an unexpected situation or find ourselves no longer able to keep living the life we are currently in, we go into a trauma or survival response. This rarely aligns with what is best for us, our relationships or our business.

Making decisions and reacting from that place, can end up plunging us deeper into it.

It's why, more often than not, when we're in the midst of that place, we find it impossible to see a different way of being, to see a way out.

The thing is, once you know, it's a really easy and simple process to shift out of it. It's also why having an external guide is so key to help you see possibility where you couldn't before.

My sweet spot is creating bespoke breakthrough transformational experiences for you. It isn't enough just to 'know' something, in order to create real shifts, we need to fully experience and embody it...

Training, qualifications & experience

Qualifying as one of the youngest counsellors ever, I have gone on to help thousands of clients through counselling, coaching, relationship therapy and bespoke sessions during the past 18 years.

My passion is getting you past the obstacles holding you back and going beyond merely 'knowing' in your mind, to fully integrating that into your being. This embodied work is where the magic, life-changing transformation happens.

I specialise in creating the breakthrough you need to get to the next level, whatever that means to you.

I have a wealth of experience in therapeutic counselling, relationship therapy and NLP techniques. As well as an in-depth understanding of the body and it's response to trauma and emotions.

Working specifically with the mind and body for so many years, I realised that there was another deeper level that is very often at play but very rarely acknowledged. This led me to train under world renowned Psychologist and Shamanic Teacher Christa Mackinnon, to become a certified Medicine Woman Shamanic Practitioner. For those interested in this way of working, I can bring various shamanic tools into the sessions or you can specifically book a Shamanic Therapeutic Healing Session.

I have recently bought all of this together and founded the WholeHearted Living Institute, which is dedicated to helping people ditch the burnout and stress for ever to create the freedom and happiness they desire through proven and effective programs.

Individual Coaching Sessions

I offer a limited number of individual coaching sessions each month. These coaching sessions combine various therapeutic approaches to ensure you get the best possible results. These are ideal if you want help with a specific issue and are looking for a one-off session.

1.5 hour session from £75-£150  (we operate a sliding scale for this service)

Creating unique experiences for you bringing together lots of different tools and techniques to best suit you is where the quickest and most effective transformation happens. After all you are here to change, and I for one, want to help you do that as quickly and easily as possible...

Bespoke Transformational Experiences

This where real, long term shifts happen. As we work with releasing all that's holding you back, reconnect you with your truest self and begin building a life that's aligned to you. Get ready for your heart to be on fire for yourself and life once more.

After our initial consultation, I create a plan for our time together. This is very bespoke to you but generally consists of;

* An intensive day together at an inspiring location. We dive deep into your blocks, release your fears and ignite your way forward. This is followed by 1-3 months of coaching support.

Please note that all sessions are conducted in line with current Covid-19 restrictions which maybe face-to-face, online via Zoom or outdoors in nature.

You know those daydreams you have…

The ones where you feel yourself drift away into a parallel universe..?

Where you are immersed in a reality where you feel happy, free and full of passion..?

They are telling you something.

They are telling you another way is possible.

That a life beyond the one you are currently living is meant for you.

That you are, indeed, meant for more than this.

So are you ready to find out more..?

Personal Breakthrough Program

If you aren't quite at the stage of diving into a Bespoke Experience, then I offer a shorter program. This is perfectly designed to free you from your emotional baggage and any beliefs that are holding you back, so that you are free to move forward with clarity and confidence. After a welcome pack and session we dive deep for 2-3 hours going through Timeline Therapy and bespoke NLP techniques, with a follow up session that provides the best container for the greatest shifts to happen. Available at select locations in the South West, U.K. or worldwide via Zoom.

Further information

As a business owner and entrepreneur, I've been in that place when the spark has gone out and you have a whole eco-system relying on you. There's no pressure quite like it.

With so little support out there for the 'boss', I'm passionate about helping those who in turn help so many others.

It's why I have set up a whole section for businesses at the WholeHearted Living Institute so that you can get the right support at the time you need it most.
