About me

Do you care deeply about others and about changing the world for the better, but sometimes find that your sensitive nature can hold you back from standing up or speaking out?

Perhaps you have great ideas but struggle to raise your voice above the din of more domineering personalities.  Or you play down your achievements because it feels like boasting.  Perhaps 18 months stuck at home behind a computer screen has heightened your anxieties around group presentations or public speaking. Maybe you've been passed over for that promotion because you didn't make a fuss; or you mentor and empower your team so well that your own contribution has become invisible from the outside.  

You are not alone.  Many compassionate people find it difficult to self-promote. But be assured that you do not need to roar in order to be heard. 

Sensitive people have the potential to be inspirational leaders, deep and brilliant thinkers, passionate advocates and agents of change.  My mission is to help you to realise yours. 

With 15 years of experience in marketing and personal branding and a diploma in transformational coaching, I specialise in helping people like you to:

  • Play bigger, step out of your comfort zone
  • Own and celebrate your achievements in a way that is authentic to you
  • Recognise your value and chase that well-deserved promotion or pay-rise
  • Build the confidence to speak up in meetings or perform in public
  • Identify your purpose and find the courage to make it happen
  • Cope with toxic, overbearing or energy-draining personalities in the workplace
  • Feel braver and more assertive without compromising your integrity
  • And ultimately, to embrace and amplify the unique gifts that you bring to the world

I offer a free, no-obligation discovery call so we can discuss your own specific needs. You will feel heard and if I can help, I will let you know!
