Helping people to be happier and have better relationships in life and business! I am passionate about helping and supporting people to become happier and truly believe when we are happy everything else becomes easier.
I am an experienced coach with over 800 hrs recorded within my coaching practice alone. I believe the self-care and finding a great #LIFEworkbalance is so important, from that place of taking good care of ourselves, we are happier, less stressed, make better decisions, have more clarity and have better relationships in life and business.
I do this through powerful 121 coaching, coaching from the heart, creating a safe space for you really to be you, to explore your greatest fears and your biggest dreams, with a gentle strength I am am to make addressing the tough stuff easy, bringing challenge and accountability. My clients will tell you, it really is life changing!
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with the CTI, now known as Co-Active and I am a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the ICF (international coach federation).
BSc (Hons) Combined Social Science with Criminology (Open University)
I am also a fellow of the School for Social Entrepreneurs and founded my own social enterprise.
I have years of experience working as a coach in my own practice, but also in previous roles, working as an outreach worker in the voluntary sector, which is where I started my coaching journey.
Working with people with Acquired Brain Injuries and with high risk offenders - where I learnt a lot about the brain and behaviours.
What I also bring is a wealth of personal experience too, something which cannot be taught and which my clients love, that I am been through tough stiff too, it makes them feel able to open up more easily knowing they will not be judged. I have personally experienced and overcome a traumatic childhood, a serious car accident, a domestic and losing siblings for too young. I share this in case this is the kind of experience you are looking for, someone with lived experience of what you are going through right now.
I sometimes I am 'too happy' which is a testament to the resilience and skills I have built up over the years, you can have this too!
