About me

A life and confidence coach based in Brighton & Hove offering online, telephone and face-to-face coaching. Animas trained, helping clients reach their goals and outcomes by building confidence and discovering their power to change. The aim is to ensure clients work towards a happier, healthier way of living and interacting in their personal and professional lives.

I am definitely a glass half full sort of person, love an adventure and get a kick out of helping and supporting others. I have a wealth of life experience in having the confidence to take chances and try something new, with the self-belief that things always work out in the end.

I lived abroad for many years and have experience in the PR, aviation and food industries, jumping from one to the other, diving feet first into new experiences and challenges, pretty much always with a smile on my face. I’m a great listener and will definitely help you find the right path to get your self-belief and self-confidence back on track to achieve your goals.

Our sessions will be relaxed, collaborative and calm. By asking the right questions I will encourage you to reflect, think differently and dig deep to find the answers that will enable you to take action to reach your goal. The hard work is done by you, but it won't feel like it! It's amazing how a chat with someone new, who has no judgement or agenda can help you move forward.

Get in touch for a free 'chemistry call' to chat about what you need and to see whether you think we are a good match. If we work together the sessions are ONE HOUR each whenever and however suits you best.

Looking forward to speaking to you,

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
