About me

Are you looking to build your confidence? Do you have a big dream but are unsure of the next step? Seeking ways to juggle work and quality family time? As a trained business and personal coach - with extensive experience of journalism and working with parents of children with autism - I offer a tailored package that will help you make your personal vision a reality.

My approach is to focus on you as a complete person - not just your current role, such as a job or parenthood. We will meet regularly, face-to-face or by phone, and I will support you, challenge you and provide you with a framework to make lasting change.

We will explore how you view the world, what you truly value and any patterns of thinking that are holding you back.

I use a variety of techniques, such as Transactional Analysis and Neuro-linguistic Programming, to help you bring out the best in yourself.

Most of all, I believe unconditionally in my clients' power to improve their lives.

Are you ready to give it a try?

Training, qualifications & experience

I have spent 15 years as journalist in a fast-paced media environment.

A wake-up call came when my son was diagnosed as autistic, forcing me to focus on my values and show true compassion for my son and for myself.

I now want to help others facing demanding situations to become more effective by reconnecting with who they are and what they really want.

I've successfully completed the Barefoot Coach Training Course for Business and Personal Coaching and am now working with a number of clients to help them find a better way to live.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

I have experience of coaching parents of children with special educational needs, particularly autism.


I offer a three-month coaching programme, tailored to your individual needs. It will consist of six 90-minute face-to-face sessions. The fees will depend on how much change you wish to create and the level of contact. We can discuss them in our initial phone meeting.
